From the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
-- The Louisiana Outdoor Writers Association (LOWA) and the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries are encouraging hunters 15 years of age or younger to enter the 2010 Youth Hunter of the Year competition.
The contest requires youth hunters to submit a story about their hunting experience along with photographs of the hunt. The Department and writers group will select a male and female youth hunter of the year based upon the stories and photos that are received.
Visit the LDWF website for information on the Youth Hunter Registry Program and the 2010 Youth Hunter of the Year Contest. The deadline to enter is June 30.
Youth hunters who participated in any hunting activity during the 2010-11 hunting season are encouraged to participate. This is not a big buck or turkey contest. The program is about youth enjoying a hunting experience, with or without success, and keeping the hunting tradition alive in Louisiana.
The two winners will be recognized at the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Conference this summer, and will receive a plaque in recognition of their achievement and a gift certificate from Bowie Outfitters in Baton Rouge.
