Louisiana is recognized nationally as the “Sportsman’s Paradise”. Judging by the rave reviews received after the inaugural edition of the new television series Louisiana Law, many of the agents of the Louisiana Department Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division will also be widely recognized.
The new series which aired last Sunday on the Animal Planet channel features LDWF agents from all over the state pursuing hunting and fishing law breakers. Local viewers got a real treat in the second show as Jackson Parish was featured in one of the segments called ‘Road Kill’. The segment featured local LDWF agents Tarver and Hatton as well as having a cameo appearance by Lane Tippen of the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office, as they followed up on a report of a hunter shooting a deer from a public road.
LDWF Enforcement Division Colonel, Chad Hebert, says the program showcases what a game warden does daily as they traverse the Louisiana wilds from the wooded north to the coastal marshlands.
“We have agents on boats, on four-wheelers, on foot, we have them check in on all different types of licenses, pretty much everything to do with the conservation efforts here in Louisiana,” said Hebert.
