BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A once-popular outdoor magazine for Louisiana’s wildlife and fisheries enthusiasts is returning to print this fall.

For decades since its start in 1917, the Louisiana Conservationist was mailed to the home of hunting and fishing license holders across the state. But publication stopped five years ago under then-Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration.

The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced Thursday it was resuming printing of the magazine. Gov. John Bel Edwards, in a statement, said the Louisiana Conservationist is “an educational asset” and “treasured portrayal of Louisiana’s wondrous outdoors.”

When it resumes, the return to print will be on a smaller scale. It will be done by existing Wildlife and Fisheries staff, printed quarterly and available for free at the department’s field offices around the state, rather than mailed to homes.
