Aug. 16, 2011-- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is accepting applications for the 2011 youth waterfowl lottery hunts on White Lake Wetlands Conservation Area (WCA) in Vermilion Parish.
There is no charge for the LDWF-sponsored hunts on Nov. 5 and 6, provided as a quality experience for young waterfowl hunters. The participants in the hunts will be determined by a lottery drawing.
Applications for the lottery should be submitted to LDWF before close of business on Sept. 15, 2011. One applicant will be selected based on the Office of Wildlife’s seven field office geographic coverage areas plus one participant selected from the state at large.
Applicants must be 15 years of age and younger. Selected hunters must be accompanied in the blind by a parent or guardian, though the youth will be the only one permitted to possess a firearm.

Completed applications may be delivered in person to Room 458 of the LDWF Building in Baton Rouge, or by mail.
