SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

The following is a news release from the Louisiana Department of Wildilfe and Fisheries:

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Association (LOWA) are encouraging hunters 15 years of age or younger to enter the 2013 Youth Hunter of the Year competition.
 
The contest requires youth hunters to submit a story about their hunting experience along with photographs of the hunt. LDWF and LOWA will then select a male and a female youth hunter of the year based upon the stories and photos that are received.
 
Visit the LDWF website at http://www.wlf.state.la.us/hunting/yhrp for registration information.
 
Youth hunters who participated in any hunting activity during the 2013-14 hunting season are encouraged to participate. This is not a big buck or turkey contest. The program is about youths enjoying a hunting experience, with or without success, and keeping the hunting tradition alive in Louisiana.
 
Completing a Youth Hunter Registry application and submitting the required photograph and short story about the hunt qualifies the young hunter for Youth Hunter of the Year consideration. The deadline to enter the 2013 Youth Hunter of the Year Contest is June 30, 2014.
 
The two winners will be recognized at the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Conference this summer as 2013 Youth Hunters of the Year. Winners will receive a plaque in recognition of their achievement and a gift certificate from Bowie Outfitters in Baton Rouge.

For more information, contact Scott Durham at 225-765-2351 or sdurham@wlf.la.gov or David Moreland at 225-978-6552 or heflinroots@hotmail.com.
