Louisiana Assessing Isaac's Impact on Deer

by | Sep 10, 2012

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) biologists are assessing the impact of Hurricane Isaac on the deer populations in parishes flooded by the storm.

Flood conditions created by Isaac's heavy rainfall moved deer out of normal habitat and in some instances resulted in deer mortalities. Biologists are working to determine the overall effect on the deer herd within impacted areas of the state. Aerial, waterborne and ground surveys will continue throughout the month of September.

The data collected would be used by LDWF's Deer Program manager to develop any recommendations for changes to the upcoming deer season. Any recommendations for changes will be presented to the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission for consideration at the October 4, 2012 Commission meeting.
