All aspects of waterfowl habitat, populations, and hunting regulations will be covered at a presentation on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at the Baton Rouge Main Library, Room 102, on Goodwood Blvd. in Baton Rouge.  The presentation by Larry Reynolds, Waterfowl Program Manager for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, will begin at 6:30pm and is open to the public.

Mr. Reynolds, a duck hunter since age 15 when he first hunted in his home state of California and a resident of Louisiana since 1989, will speak with a Power Point presentation about the most recent waterfowl population and migration trends, including details on species that are increasing and decreasing in numbers, changes in hunting regulations for the upcoming season, and any new information that comes out of the Mississippi Flyway meeting which will take place prior to October 10.

Mr. Reynolds obtained his BS in Wildlife Biology at the University of California at Davis and did post-graduate work at Texas A&M and LSU.

The program is sponsored by the Waterfowl Committee of the Louisiana Wildlife Federation.  For more information, contact Charles Williams at 225-250-8623.
