Duck talk already?

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) recommended a two-zone, two-split East-West boundary option for the 2021-25 waterfowl hunting seasons to the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) during its August meeting Thursday (Aug. 6) in Baton Rouge. It’s a change from three zones — which included a COASTAL ZONE the past several years.

The change won’t have any effect on local and regional hunters unless they travel around the whole state hunting ducks.

After consideration of hunter preferences from the 2020 Louisiana Waterfowl Hunter Survey and federal waterfowl harvest data from the last 20 years, the recommended option puts the coastal areas of Louisiana in a new West Zone.

The commission is expected to take up the recommendation at September’s meeting (Sept. 3) and welcomes and encourages public comment in the interim. It may also consider other boundary options presented by LDWF waterfowl program manager Larry Reynolds during Thursday’s meeting. To see Reynold’s presentation from Thursday’s meeting, which includes other zone options, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/assets/Hunting/Waterfowl/Files/Zones-splits-August-Commission-presentation.pdf.

The new waterfowl hunting zones would take effect for the 2021-22 season and run through the 2025-26 season. To see the upcoming 2020-21 waterfowl hunting zones and dates, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/seasons-and-regulations

One thought on “Duck talk already?

  1. typical government geography. The west zone goes as far east as it can go in LA. Maybe the LDWF can help the Big 10 count teams.
