In order to accommodate as many duck hunters and conservationists as possible we have an updated time and location for the Catahoula/Cenla Town Hall meeting. The new time and location is Thursday September 5th at 6:30 pm at Kees Park in Pineville. Whether you are new to duck hunting or are a seasoned waterfowler please join us for a time of fellowship and information sharing. Put names to faces, ask questions, see old friends, and make new ones while learning about the mission of the only active waterfowl group born right here in the deep south.

All: As a member of DU, Delta, a subscriber to American Waterfowler, and a general supporter of all things waterfowl, I can tell you I believe wholeheartedly in Josh and what FFL can do. Josh and I have communicated outside of this thread and I assure you WE (FFL) are open to ALL partnerships and ALL supporters of waterfowl in the Great State of Louisiana, regardless if we agree on all of the topics raised on this thread or not. The bottom line is waterfowl hunting in Louisiana isn't what it used to be and we hope to return it to its' former glory for our children, grandchildren, and all of the generations of LA waterfowlers to come. Regardless of your individual ideals, please keep posts here positive, including those towards LDWF. We must ALL work TOGETHER to secure ideal habitat and black skies! You can argue with Larry if you are so persuaded at your next local waterfowl event. I'm sure he'll be there!

I can tentatively say yes, I will support an organization focused on La. I would have to attend a meeting or hear more one on one to really commit. 'Habitat' is casting a very broad net. I am relatively new to La and hunt public land exclusively. Having hunted here two seasons now there is a very clear line dividing those who hunt public and private land. That's not to say one is better than the other or one is right and one is wrong, just some very different ideology. I question if there is sustainable financial support to do this long term, particularly if next year just happens to be better. Whether or not crop manipulation in the midwest and people using ice eaters has altered the migration or what constitutes 'prime habitat' will always be debatable. What is not debatable is that generally speaking our ducks follow the Mississippi and it's tributaries down. If there are extremely dry conditions (Arkansas, Northern and Central La this year) along the river, a naturally occurring shift (even marginally) in the jet stream, etc. there will be an impact on the numbers of ducks that migrate here. My personality is to only do things 100% so I am skeptical of putting time, effort, and money in to an endeavor that may lose support in 8 or 10 months if we have birds here during teal season or people kill limits in the first split this fall.

I apologize for answering longer than 'yes'. I'm a strong maybe with an interest to learn more.
