Hunting in 3 state WMA's to begin again this week

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The state Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries is reopening hunting seasons in three wildlife management areas this week.

Effective Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, the LDWF will reopen hunting seasons on Joyce, Manchac and Maurepas Swamp wildlife management areas (WMAs). All hunting seasons, except waterfowl, had been closed Jan. 12 on these three WMAs due to high water levels associated with recent rain events.

The three WMAs contain acreage in parts of Ascension, Livingston, St. James, St. John the Baptist and Tangipahoa parishes.
