APPLICATIONS BEING TAKEN FOR WHITE LAKE YOUTH HUNT
White Lake Preservation, Inc., is holding a guided youth waterfowl hunt on
November 1 and 2, on the White Lake Preserve near Gueydan. Applications
are now being accepted by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and
Fisheries. To participant in the lottery drawing, applications must be
received in Room 461 of the Wildlife and Fisheries Building in Baton Rouge
by close of business October 6.
Applicants must be under the age of 16. Interested youth hunters may apply
for each date, however if they are selected for one date they will be
ineligible for the second date. Each successful applicant must be
accompanied in the blind by a parent or guardian. A hunting guide will be
assigned to each blind. The hunts are being held during the waterfowl
youth weekend that was established by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries
Commission, therefore only hunters under the age of 16 are allowed to
possess a firearm and shoot.
Applications may be delivered in person or mailed. The mailing address is:
Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Attention: White Lake Youth
Waterfowl Hunt at P.O. Box 98000, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 70898.
Applications may be obtained from the LDWF website at: www.wlf.state.la.us/apps/netgear/index.asp?cn=lawlf&pid=950.
One applicant will be selected from each of 7 geographic regions in the
state and one participant will be selected from the state at large.
Selected participants will be provided overnight accommodations and
arrival times will be sent to each hunter prior to the hunt. In the event
the applicant is not able to participate in the youth hunt, he may
transfer that permit to a qualified hunter (under the age of 16) of their
choice. Transfers must be in writing and presented to the Hunt Coordinator
on the morning of the hunt.
