Registration open for 2019 Louisiana Youth Hunter of the Year contest

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and the Louisiana Wildlife Federation are seeking submissions for the 2019 Youth Hunter of the Year contest. The contest, for the 2019 calendar year, is open to Louisiana boys and girls ages 15 and younger.

Did you have a special hunt this past year? Harvested your first game animal or bird? Maybe just a hunting trip made great by sharing time in the outdoor with family and friends? Regardless, you could be a candidate for our male and female Youth Hunter of the Year contest.

Youth Hunters of the Year will receive a plaque in recognition of their achievement and a gift certificate from Bowie Outfitters. The winners will also be recognized at a banquet in May. Contest sponsors include the Baton Rouge Chapter of Delta Waterfowl, Andrew Harrison with Harrison Law, LLC, Bowie Outfitters – Baton Rouge and Outdoor Roots.

To apply, download the registration form on the LDWF web site. Entrants must submit the registration form along with a photograph and story describing the hunt. Entries must be postmarked by March 14, 2020. Applications can be sent by mail or submitted electronically.
