CROWLEY, La. (KPEL) -- Northwest Louisiana could potentially have a different waterfowl hunting season than south Louisiana depending on the outcome of a series of public meetings being held across the state, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

Meetings in Bossier City and Crowley will discuss potential waterfowl hunting season dates for 2013-2014 and will provide updates on current waterfowl issues, Reynolds said.

Attendees will be able to ask questions during these meetings.

"For the first time in 36 years, LDWF changed the number of waterfowl hunting zones and zone boundaries," Reynolds said, "and northwest Louisiana may now have season dates different that south Louisiana."

While the meeting in Bossier City will focus on season dates and zone changes, Reynolds said the Crowley meeting will focus on goose hunting. Brief summaries of state-level waterfowl population and harvest data will be presented.
