I personally get tired of seeing the same type of adds just cluttering up the sight...So in....  Read More

Why is LDWF Leaving Money On the Table

Is it any wonder, after reviewing the facts regarding the fees Louisiana charges compared to Mississippi, why Mississippi is the leader of the two states in so many Wildlife Management Areas?

From first hand experiences, Louisiana WMA’s, like the PRWMA (Pearl River Wildlife Management Area), have always struggled through low budgets, and....  Read More
