White Lake W.C.A. youth waterfowl hunt dates announced

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will hold youth waterfowl hunts on the White Lake Wetlands Conservation Area (WCA) near Gueydan on Nov. 1 and 2. LDWF will sponsor the hunts to provide a quality experience for young waterfowl hunters.

The participants in the hunts will be determined by a lottery drawing. Applications for the lottery should be submitted to LDWF before close of business on Sept. 25. One applicant will be selected from each of the seven geographic LDWF regions in the state and one participant will be selected from the state at large.

Applicants must be 15 years of age or younger. Selected hunters must be accompanied in the blind by a parent or guardian, though the youth will be the only one permitted to possess a firearm.

Applications may be obtained by contacting LDWF’s regional offices or by visiting the LDWF Web site at http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/. Completed applications may be delivered in person to Room 461 of the LDWF Building in Baton Rouge, or by mail. The mailing address is: Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Attention: White Lake Youth Waterfowl Hunt at P.O. Box 98000, Baton Rouge, LA 70898.
