(Jan. 25, 2016) - The opportunity to win a brand new 22-foot Bullsbay boat with trailer is still on the line as part of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ first annual License to Win! promotion. In partnership with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation, the Department also selects monthly prize winners as part of the sweepstakes. Six lucky winners were selected in the December drawing held on January 1 including Clayton Branton, Dustin Comeaux, Landon Courtney, Ray Graham, Bradley Hebert and Jesse Horn.
The winners were among thousands of names entered when they purchased a 2015-16 recreational saltwater fishing license.
The sweepstakes includes fives monthly prize winners of a YETI Tundra 45 ice chest, Shimano Curado G-Loomis Combo or gift cards from Academy Sports and Outdoors, Texaco and Whole Foods Market.
The License to Win! sweepstakes encourages anglers to provide accurate contact information to participate in a survey (LA Creel) that helps LDWF manage their fishery. LA Creel is the data-gathering survey that allows LDWF biologists to manage our fisheries at localized levels across the state. The success of LA Creel will not only allow the Department to better manage fisheries, but will ultimately maximize the amount of fishing opportunities for Louisiana anglers.
We’re only halfway through this year-long promotion, leaving plenty opportunity for your chance to be our next lucky winner. Visit your nearest license vendor or go online (www.wildlifelicense.com) to purchase your recreational saltwater license to be eligible for next month’s drawing. The department will continue to select five winners each month, and one lucky angler will take home the grand prize, a 22 foot bay boat, trailer and motor donated by Venice Marina, Mercury Outboards and Mike Gerald’s Trailer Depot.
