Posted May 3, 2015 By NewsEngine

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) are sponsoring two summer day camps at the Waddill Outdoor Education Center in Baton Rouge this summer.

The camps will be held from June 22-26 and again from July 20-24 and are completely free of charge.

The June 22-26 camp will be for 25 kids 10 to 12 years old and will take place from 8 a.m. to noon every day. Snacks and drinks will be provided at the camp. Parents must be able to drop their child off between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. and pick up their child between noon and 12:30 p.m. every day. This camp will teach kids the basics of the outdoor with hands on activities and safety instructions. The kids that make it thru this 1/2 day camp will then be guaranteed to be selected for the full day camp next year.

Beginning Monday, May 4, nonresident hunters can choose among Montana’s surplus deer, elk and big game combination hunting licenses and purchase them online or over-the-counter at any Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office.

With more nonresident applications received for Montana’s 2015 deer and elk hunting licenses, there are about 1,600 fewer surplus licenses available this season when compared to last year. The first-come, first-served nonresident surplus licenses will include a total of: 1,696 big game combination licenses for $991; 2,086 elk combination licenses for $841; and 1,635 deer combination licenses for $587.

“Last year we sold out of the surplus deer and big game combos,” said Hank Worsech, chief of FWP’s Licensing Bureau in Helena. “If sales are similar to last year, we could sell out the entire nonresident surplus well before the beginning of the hunting season.”
