Wildlife & Fisheries

The United States Army, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) cooperatively manage about 140,000 acres on Fort Polk and Peason Ridge as wildlife management areas dedicated to providing outdoor recreational opportunities for the Soldier and general public alike. These areas are open to hunting, fishing, and nature viewing when not conflicting with the military mission. Through the combined management efforts of these agencies, game and fish populations have flourished on Fort Polk and USFS lands, and will continue to provide many generations of outdoor enthusiasts the joy and excitement of the Louisiana outdoor experience.
