LDWF Streamlines Process to Obtain Duplicate Lifetime License

Published 8:30 am Sunday, July 24, 2022

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) announced that current lifetime license holders can now purchase a duplicate lifetime license card online (LouisianaOutdoors.com) or from an approved retail vendor.

As before, current lifetime license holders will still be able to obtain a duplicate card by mail or in-person at the headquarters office in Baton Rouge.

“We are committed to making things more convenient for our customers,” said LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “These new options will be faster and easier for everyone involved.”

The cost of the duplicate card is $7.50. If the duplicate card is purchased online, a $5 convenience fee will be assessed by the LDWF license vendor. The $5 convenience fee will not be assessed if the card is obtained at vendor locations, by mail or at the Baton Rouge headquarters office.
