Default .223/5.56 for deer

In the state of Louisiana I am trying to find out if it is legal to hunt whitetail deer with .223/5.56, or what would be the smallest caliber legal to hunt them? I want to bring my daughter on her 1st deer hunt & I thought one of my AR's might be good for her to shoot for the low recoil & accuracy. Thanks in advance for your help.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is now offering a free information hotline to the public that will cover popular season dates and regulations.

The public can call the toll free hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-256-2749. As seasons are set, LDWF will update the hotline with the most current information.

The little Miss may lose interest if she has to track one or watch it twitch for ten minutes. You might let her try a 30-30 first.

It is illegal to hunt or shoot deer with firearms
smaller than .22 caliber center-fire or
a shotgun loaded with anything other than
buckshot or rifled slug. Handguns may be
used for hunting.

It's legal. Half my hunting club used it when I lived there. The other half used shotguns. Had 1 guy with a 7mm mag and we made fun of him for it constantly. His stand had a 75 yard shooting lane. That was the long one. The others were about 50.
