Release Date: 07/28/2011

July 28, 2011 -- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will re-open Sherburne Wildlife Management Area (WMA) effective Aug. 1, 2011.

The public shooting ranges that include the rifle, handgun, archery and shotgun range 1 are included in the Aug. 1 re-opening of those areas within the WMA which had remained closed since spring floodwater prompted LDWF to close the site in May. The public is reminded that LA 975 south from US Hwy. 190 remains closed.  Access to the site is restricted to LA 975 from I-10 to the Sherburne WMA Headquarters.
