The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is postponing the opening of the 2012 Wild Alligator Lottery Season on Pearl River, Joyce, Manchac and Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Areas due to continuing impacts from Hurricane Isaac.  The previously scheduled opening on Saturday, September 8, 2012 has been rescheduled for Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

All alligator hunters are urged to verify that their selected buyer will be open to buy harvested alligators, prior to beginning any harvest effort.
