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 Rangers claim they can’t afford to put rocks on....  Read More

Went this weekend and put in some scouting to locate the deer honey holes. As usual for this time of year, we did see some deer sign and it looks like another promising year.You would swear the deer numbers are low but the camera don’t lie, all deer are taken on week days not weekends, the deer know what day Friday is. Just remember keep your camera high in dry are you will surely donate it.....  Read More

I was thinking about taking a trip to Richard K. Yancey and let the hounds tree a few coons. I was looking for some information on the woods, is it big hardwood timber? Swampy? Thick underbrush? Also, I noticed that on the northern part of the wma, which is where I was planning to go, it looked like there are agricultural fields on the boundary. If I am correct, does anybody know what is planted....  Read More

Hi all,

I'm new to the site, as well as to hunting in general. I have a few questions that I can't really find a straight answer on.

Me and a buddy want to try some deer hunting in Sherburne WMA this coming fall, but I've got a few questions. Hang with me here because I'm new to deer hunting. My buddy has been deer hunting plenty, just not in Louisiana. He's from....  Read More

I have heard thru the grapevind that LDWF is considering increasing the size of the restricted areas on coastal WMA's know as Limited Access Areas?

As I read the rule it restricts combustion engines from being allowed within the LAA areas 24/7 from September thru the end of January.

Does anyone know if this is accurate in terms of how the rules are enforced?

How do you....  Read More

We (hunter and conservationist of the WMA’s) don’t have access to, or the privilege of, having feature articles written for us in the Louisiana Sportsman, which is controlled by Ann Taylor (a Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commissioner), on our behalf as does the LDWF. The only way we can possible hope to have our side of any debate with LDWF accurately portrayed is to reach out to you, the....  Read More

All of us with the Save Our WMA would like to publicly thank the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, specifically Kenny Ribbeck, for listening our recent suggestions to open Oil Well Road, which is a road within the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area that has been closed in the off hunting seasons for the past 12 years for “Turkey Management”.

When we pointed out that in....  Read More

Since we all know that “everything on the internet is true”, just like the “French model”, I won’t try to debunk all the stuff LDWF puts in the hog trough for public consumption, but I’ll do my best to provide the LDWF an opportunity to present facts and data to support their positions in an attempt to dispel some of the urban legends that are circulated at the agency’s campfires.

But....  Read More

  • Newly created 'Honey Island Shooting Range Safety Zone'
In an outrageous demonstration of disregard for the established needs and concerns of hunters of public lands in Louisiana the Secretary of Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, without any public knowledge or input, has conspicuously closed down 206 prime hunting acres that were accessible by road in the Pearl River WMA. While 206 acres might not seem like much land when the PRWMA....  Read More

This is yet another blatant display of the deep prevailing corruption that seems to be so much a part of the LDWF. The LDWF apparently are able to break the laws of the state of Louisiana, laws you and I must obey, laws that are enforced at the point of a gun with the threat of jail time. The arrogance of the LDWF’s elitist attitude demonstrates that they believe they are untouchable and are....  Read More
