More Public Land In Works For North Louisiana
BATON ROUGE (AP) — North Louisiana may be getting two new wildlife areas.
KNOE-TV reports that the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has reached a tentative agreement with Molpus Woodlands Group on behalf of a client to acquire 8,755 acres of land in Morehouse and Union parishes that would be managed as two wildlife areas.
The tracts are along Chemin-A-Haut Bayou (3,842 acres) in Morehouse Parish and Bayou DeLoutre (4,913 acres) in Union Parish. The television station reports that the lands could become part of LDWF's wildlife management area system as early as the spring of 2016.
LDWF manages 1.6 million acres on 55 wildlife management areas throughout Louisiana.
