September issue to hit mailboxes next week

Decision comes after National Forest Service ban overturned in July, LDWF says.

The September issue of Louisiana Sportsman is on its way to the printer, and will be mailed on Saturday. That means subscribers will start seeing the issue in their mailboxes beginning on Monday.

Included in the issue is our annual WMA Forecast, in which local biologists make their predictions about which wildlife management areas will deliver the best action during the coming season.

The issue also includes a special announcement about a new product that every Louisiana deer hunter will want to acquire.

The feature lineup is as follows:
