About the Author: Sgt. Scott Fontenot has been with Wildlife and Fisheries, Enforcement Division, for 15 years. Remember, Wildlife and Fisheries has a toll free number to report any game or fish violations at 1-800-442-2511.

These questions and answers deal with general hunting and fishing situations. If you choose to hunt or fish on a wildlife management area (state and federal), you should check to see if there are special rules or regulations for that area. There could even be a special ordinance in the parish or on the property you wish to fish or hunt.

Anyone with questions for Wildlife and Fisheries agents should send them to vpgaz@centurytel.net or mail to The Gazette, c/o W&F Questions, PO Box 220, Ville Platte, La. 70586.

A message to the public: Please remember not to litter. You can report litter violations to your local wildlife agents or by calling Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries at 1-800-442-2511. If an anonymous complaint is received from the public on a litter violation, and a case is made from that complaint, a reward will be given by the Evangeline Parish Solid Waste Commission.
