Updated maps of Louisiana wildlife management areas (WMAs) are now available to the public electronically by visiting the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries website. The maps, which can be downloaded in PDF format and printed, can be found by accessing the 'Hunting, Fishing and Boating' section of department's website at Wildlife Management Areas.

As always, printed copies of WMA maps are available free of charge at LDWF regional offices across the state or from the department's library. The library is located on the first floor of the LDWF headquarters building at 2000 Quail Dr. in Baton Rouge. A map of any WMA or a state map showing the locations of all Louisiana WMAs can also be requested by electronic mail addressed to WLF_LDWF@wlf.state.la.us or by writing to Librarian, P. O. Box 98000, Baton Rouge, LA 70898-9000. In addition to the name of the WMA for which a map is requested, each request must include a name and a physical address to which the map can be mailed.

"Each year, LDWF revises maps for the 51 WMAs across the state to reflect changes in boundaries, roads and other features to facilitate public access and increase public hunting opportunities," noted Randy Myers, LDWF land acquisition program manager. "It's important that people have up-to-date maps when using the WMA system."

Before downloading the maps, web users are encouraged to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available free on our website," said Nema Davis, LDWF webmaster. "This will ensure faster download time and minimize download problems."
