BATON ROUGE (AP) — State wildlife and fisheries officials are postponing the 2012 wild alligator lottery season on the Pearl River, Joyce, Manchac and Maurepas swamp wildlife management areas because of the effects of Hurricane Isaac.

The season was scheduled to open on Saturday but has since been pushed back to Wednesday, Sept. 12.

All alligator hunters are urged to verify that their selected buyer will be open to buy harvested alligators, prior to beginning any harvest effort.

For more information on alligator season on the affected management areas, contact Christian Winslow in the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Hammond Field Office at 985-543-4781 or
