BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - State wildlife and fisheries regulators say Louisiana's wildlife management areas and refuges will remain open during the federal government shutdown that affects similar federal properties.

As deer and resident small game hunting seasons open this week, state officials say Louisiana hunters can access nearly 1.5 million acres of Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries-managed public hunting areas.
