Louisiana: Two Important Hunting Bills Up in Senate Natural Resources Committee

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Tomorrow, the Senate Natural Resources Committee will hear House Bill 169, introduced by state Representative Cameron Henry (R-82), and House Bill 294, introduced by state Representative Major Thibaut (D-18).  Both bills have already passed in the state House and await Senate committee consideration.

HB 169 would allow Louisianans to use firearms fitted with lawfully-possessed sound suppressors while hunting nongame nuisance quadrupeds, such as feral hogs, nutria or beaver.  Sound suppressors reduce noise complaints, recoil, and hearing loss while increasing accuracy. 

HB 294 would remove the requirement to acquire a special permit to trap feral hogs and remove the limitation on the types of firearms used for hunting nongame nuisance quadrupeds, nutria, or beaver.

Please contact members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee and encourage them support HB 169 and HB 294.
