The News-Star, Monroe, La., on expanding ‘Sportsman’s Paradise’:
Louisiana takes pride in its reputation as the Sportsman’s Paradise.
The state’s landscapes are as rich and diverse as any in the country, and its waterways are the envy of our neighbors.
And unlike other states, many of our natural jewels are open to the public.
And our public sportsman’s — and sportswoman’s — paradise in northeastern Louisiana just got bigger.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has reached a lease agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to add the 2,954-acre tract to the Ouachita Wildlife Management Area’s southern border along Bosco Lane.
That gives us a 40,000-acre tract of nature with the contiguous 14,000-acre Ouachita WMA and the 36,000-acre Russell Sage Wildlife Management area.
It’s a playground for hunters, birdwatchers and nature lovers to roam for free.
We applaud the LDWF for seeking ways to expand public land for recreation for us and for the creatures who can thrive there.
