The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will host a special deer management meeting at the Allen Parish Civic Center located in Oberlin at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 26.


LDWF biologists will be present for the meeting to discuss the deer hunting structure in Allen and Beauregard parishes, which reside in Area 8 of the states regional portion.


Hunters will have the opportunity to hear first hand why these parishes fall in the Area 8 structure, said Dave Moreland, LDWF Wildlife Division administrator.  They can also ask questions of the biologists regarding the harvest and season framework.


Anybody who is interested in deer management is invited to attend.  For more information on the event, please call the LDWF Region 5 Office at 337-491-2575.
