Officials with the U.S. Army have announced that the federal permit previously required to hunt on the Fort Polk and Peason Ridge wildlife management areas (WMAs) is no longer required. Archery and small game hunters using the Cantonment Area within the Army installation are advised that proper visitor passes will be required to enter the security gates.
All users must still fill out a self-clearing permit for all activities (hunting, fishing, birdwatching, sightseeing, etc.). Self-clearing permits are available at information kiosks, and are located at most WMA entrance roads. Louisiana hunting licenses are still required to hunt on these federal properties, including the $15 annual WMA Hunting Permit.
