BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - State wildlife officials say the property known as Union Wildlife Management Area will no longer be part of the department’s wildlife management area program, effective July 1

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said Saturday it has decided to conclude a long-term lease with Plum Creek Timber Company on approximately 10,000 acres in Union Parish. The department said it plans to focus instead on supporting wildlife management efforts in other areas within its system.

The department says that for many years, Plum Creek provided hunting access on the Union WMA in northeast Louisiana. The company will now offer the lands for lease to individuals or hunting clubs.
