The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission adopted a two-zone East-West boundary option for the 2021-25 waterfowl hunting seasons during its September meeting Thursday (Sept. 3) in Baton Rouge.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) recommended the option after consideration of hunter preferences from the 2020 Louisiana Waterfowl Hunter Survey and federal waterfowl harvest data from the last 20 years.

The new boundaries combine the current West and Coastal Zones as well as portion of the rice-growing region in southwest Louisiana into a new West Zone, according to a release from LDWF.
