L.W.F.C. Revises East-West Zone Boundary for 2012-2015 Waterfowl Seasons

Waterfowl Zone Map 2012-2015

July 3, 2012 -- The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) revised on July 2 the northern boundary for the recently realigned east and west zones that are part of the three-zone framework for the 2012-2015 waterfowl seasons.

Public comments received by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and LWFC members from hunters in northwest and north central Louisiana indicated that popular duck hunting water bodies in the region were separated when the east-west zone boundary was changed to US Hwy. 167 north from Jonesboro to the Arkansas border.

The Commission approved a proposal to move the northern regional boundary for the east and west zones back to the original map coordinates that existed prior to the panel’s vote of June 7. That previous boundary, now re-instated, runs west from Jonesboro along LA 4 to Ringgold, then north along LA 7 to Minden, then west along I-20 to Bossier City, then north along LA 3 to the Arkansas border.

The boundaries for the newly created coastal zone did not change and no other segment of the east-west zone boundary was revised.
