BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Beginning Wednesday, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will reopen hunting seasons on Joyce, Manchac and Maurepas Swamp wildlife management areas.
The three areas contain acreage in parts of Ascension, Livingston, St. James, St. John the Baptist and Tangipahoa parishes.
All hunting seasons, except waterfowl, have been closed since Jan. 12 on the management areas due to high water levels associated with recent rain events.
