Youth Hunter of the the Year Contest Returns

2023 Youth Hunters of the Year Winners Honored at 58th Conservation Achievement Awards Banquet

The Louisiana Wildlife Federation (LWF), along with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, is proud to announce the winners of our 2023 Youth Hunter of the Year competition. This is the first time since 2019 that we are honoring Louisiana's Youth Hunters of the Year and because of that five year hiatus, our panel of judges decided to select two boys and two girls who best represented the joy, thrill, camaraderie, and beauty of hunting in the Sportsman's Paradise.
