I'm just cautious about LdWf taking on more land,when in distant memory they were crying about not having any funds. I can remember them crying about have no spare tires,shutting down WMAs,laying off game wardens,if taxes weren't raised to bail them out. There is always been fighting over operational funds,since they operate out of the general fund and have to fight with other state govt bodies to operate. It almost was seem like a hostage situation. With that said,I would like to know want 'management' has taken place since Maurepas WMA has been created. Have you got enough agents to police it from poaching? I was in a hunting club that was annexed,camp burned down ect,and I'm good with that,we should have bought it when we had chance. What I know is that the clubs that had it before at least police the area,had a vested intrerest in stopping poaching. I can sure speak for our club building wood duck boxes,working with LSU on weevils for salvina contol,keeping eye on interior of land. The self clearing box on New River today is still on the dock we built,not the LDWF. I'm just cautious when gov takes over anything.
LDWF have added more land to Maurepas WMA? What have they done to manage what they have already? Where r the new boat launches,wood duck boxes ,salvina control,food plots,access from I-10,new trails,water control structures?
They may want to manage what they already have,instead of taking on more land. IDK if the hunting clubs that had leases before did more to benefit the land than what I have seen since the WMA has ballooned into what it is now.
