Hunting regulations change in Spillway
Eli Vicknair, of Norco, with a 9-point killed in the Spillway.
All other deer regulations will be bucks only and the season has also been shortened, according to Dr. Chris Brantley, project manager of the Bonnet Carre Spillway. Hunters have had a lot of success in the Spillway, and a 9-point buck was killed in the area last year.
All hunting in the Bonnet Carre Spillway requires additional permits and posted restrictions apply to all hunters regardless of age. Anyone with questions should contact the project office at (985)764-7484 or go online at www.mvn.usace.army.mil/recreation.
