It's a very unique combination. It matches the hunting of one of Louisiana's most primitive creatures and the modern technology of the Internet. That's right, you can now secure your alligator hunting licenses via the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries website.

This is the first time the alligator sport hunting licenses have been made available for online purchase. Up until today, a prospective 'gator hunter would have to visit an LDWF Field Office to obtain the proper permits to hunt the large reptiles.

Louisiana residents may obtain an alligator sport hunting license for just $25. Out of state residents may secure the same license for a fee of $150. Alligator hunting season begins in the east zone on August 28th. The season for the west zone will begin on September 4th.  The season runs for 30 days after opening day.
