BR National Hunting and Fishing Day cancelled

Due to the impacts of the August 2016 Flood, Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries has announced that the Baton Rouge venue for National Hunting and Fishing Day will be cancelled this year.  The Waddill facility was damaged by flood water, but more important, many of the volunteers and groups which make this event so successful were also impacted by the flood.  NHF Day will continue as planned at the other venues in Haughton, Woodworth and West Monroe on the 4th Saturday of September.
