Hurricane Isaac killed so many fawns in parts of southeast Louisiana that Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission is limiting the deer season in Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes and the Lake Maurepas Basin.
The archery season remains the same, but others are shortened and limited to bucks.
Dates also were changed in several wildlife management areas.
In Plaquemines Parish, biologists report high fawn mortality, moderate adult deer mortality and severe damage to habitat from salt water shock and storm surge debris.
State crews will make a last pass to pick up Hurricane Isaac debris in southeast Louisiana starting Monday.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says this will be the third and final pass for debris removal in Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, St. Charles, and Terrebonne parishes and inside the levee system for St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes.
Storm debris should be separated into two piles — one for vegetative debris and the other for demolition debris. Household appliances should be placed separately and to the side.
Hurricane Isaac's winds paired with recent rains made a rough start for this year's sugar-cane grinding season. But industry officials are optimistic that weather will improve this month, helping the process along.
Jim Simon, general manager of the American Sugar Cane League, tells The Courier several mills started grinding last week. The remaining mills are scheduled to begin work this week.
Simon says the sugar cane industry has an annual impact of about $1.1 billion in Louisiana.
