The pre-application window will be open through midnight on May 19, 2023. For more information, including requirements, a full program manual, and an instructional video visit the Louisiana Outdoors Forever website. These projects will expand the footprint of conservation in the state, restore valuable habitat, provide for land management, and enhance public access
The 2023 turkey hunting season on the Richard K. Yancey and Sherburne Wildlife Management Areas is closed for 2023. Above-average rainfall for eight of the last 11 years, along with intensive flooding for long durations during the nesting and brood-rearing periods in these areas, are thought to be part of a decline in reproductive success of turkeys, thus requiring the action.
Visitors must have a WMA Access Permit, Senior Hunting/Fishing License, Louisiana Sportsman's Paradise License, or a Lifetime Hunting/Fishing License to visit an LDWF WMA, Refuge, or Conservation Area, including Shooting Ranges, for any reason. The WMA Access Permit only covers access onto the property—it does NOT convey hunting or fishing privileges.
