Louisiana: Two Important Hunting Bills Pass Committee, Move to Senate Floor!

Posted: 05.19.11 07:44 AM

Louisiana: Two Important Hunting Bills Pass Committee, Move to Senate Floor! Thursday, May 19, 2011 Today, the Senate Natural Resources Committee passed two important pro-hunting bills by unanimous voice votes. House Bill 169, introduced by state Representative Cameron Henry (R-82), and House Bill 294, introduced by state Representative Major Thibaut (D-18), have already passed in the state House and now await consideration by the full Senate. 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 your state Senator today and respectfully ask him or her to support HB 169 and HB 294. To contact your state Senator click here.
