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”.
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.
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
I've recently started hunting the PR WMA a week ago going everyday. I'm looking for rabbits, squirrels and even a hog or two. Problem is I haven't seen anything other than a few birds. I go off trail and walk deep in the woods I'm there before dawn. Anyone know where the hunting in this area is best for small game? Anyone having any luck out there at all?
Does anybody have any experience bow hunting the Thistlethwaite management area? I am a student at LSU and was interested in doing a little bow hunting next season. Any advice, tips, or anything like that would be greatly appreciated!
I had a bad feeling when I woke up this morning. Made 27 today and I just felt like something was going to go wrong. Went to walmart in Houma to pick up an orange vest and someone stole my brand new icechest out of my boat. Then we launched the boat at 8am in Pearl River WMA(launch off of 90)came back at 1030 and someone smashed my friggin' driver side window. They stole my ipod, gps, cds and.... Read More
Good afternoon,\r\n\r\nI\'m new to the New Orleans area (living in Kenner) and recently got my Louisiana licenses to be able to hunt down here. As I\'m new I don\'t know anyone who has a hunting lease and my only legal options would be WMA\'s for the time being and Big Branch and Salvador are my close options. Being as is I have a few questions..... Read More
Has anyone duck hunted Lake Ramsey WMA? I just moved down the road from it and in the regs it mentions 'waterfowl hunting' but I can't really google earth anything besides a small creek/tchefuncte. Anyone hear of anyone making any hunts out there? Would like to do some scouting but really can't find a starting point on where to start walking...

It is important for you and your dog hunting friends to participate in this meeting as Congressman Alexander looks for a final resolution to this controversy. Please.... Read More
I'm new to the state and I'm looking to start hunting the WMAs. I'm unfamiliar with how to hunt these areas. I will be primarily hunting the Sherburne WMA since its closest to me. If anybody can give me some pointers on how to start hunting these areas that would be much appreciated.
I assume it would be like hunting any other public land, scout, set up, and wait. I just.... Read More
