From Louisiana Department of Wildlife Fisheries
-- Deer hunters harvested over 3,000 deer on either-sex managed deer hunts on state owned Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) during the 2007-08 hunting season.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife Fisheries (LDWF) reported a total of 28,813 hunter efforts recorded on managed hunts. Those efforts resulted in 3,094 total deer taken for an average of about one deer for every 9.3 hunter efforts
"WMA managed hunts were excellent across the state this hunting season with several great deer harvested," said LDWF's Deer Study Leader Scott Durham. "We're happy with the results and the fact you can have a quality hunting experience on many of our WMAs."
The total number of harvested deer is on par with last year's total of over 3,000 deer taken during the managed hunts. LDWF collects harvest data on deer taken during managed hunts on about 800,000 acres. Collection of these data is the primary method used by LDWF deer managers to monitor herd health conditions on WMAs.
