In Louisiana, anyone born after Sept. 1, 1969 must satisfactorily complete a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries-approved hunter education course to legally hunt in Louisiana, unless they are under direct supervision of a Louisiana licensed hunter born before Sept. 1, 1969, or a person 18 years of age or older who has a valid unrestricted Louisiana hunting license or proof of Hunter Education Certification. Direct supervision means the person being supervised is within normal audible voice contact and in the direct line of sight of the supervising person at all times while hunting.
