Hunting Information

JRTC and Fort Polk Logo Hunter logo

Welcome to the Fort Polk WMA Public Information Site.

Note:

For hunters that don't have the proper credentials for gaining access to Fort Polk, we have opened a permit station in the big parking lot adjacent to the Alligator Lake entrance. 

Directions to this station are: From La. Hwy. 28, proceed South on La. Hwy. 469 approximately 1.6 miles from the flashing light. The permit station is located on the left approximately 0.3 mile inside the post boundary but outside the perimeter check. 

Operating hours are 0800-1630, Mon.-Fri and 0530 to 1200 on Sat, Sun and Holidays.

 NOTE: This will also serve as the North Fort Either-Sex Deer Permit Station instead of Bldg. 7654, Post Game Warden's Office.

 Hunting permits must be obtained prior to hunting during any special hunt or regular season.

Note: You should check the maps posted at hunter check stations for updated information. This schedule is subject to change for urgent training priorities. Just in case, it's recommended you call the Fort Polk Game Warden Office prior to traveling long distance to hunt here at Fort Polk.

This site provides information on open hunting seasons,* maps and schedules of open and closed areas, and contacts at Fort Polk for additional information. Please be sure to read all of the information here as well as the regulations for hunting, fishing, and trapping at Fort Polk and Peason Ridge before planning your trip.
