The wonderful Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge is hosting a free hunting and fishing day Saturday 17th Sept, 2016. Please note that if you are approaching from the West you can’t access Tensas River NWR via the Quebec entrance off Highway 80 for this Saturday’s event due to the roadworks, but you can leave Highway 80 earlier on 577 and just approach from the southern end or access it from the East.

We greatly appreciated the new gravel chippings on the roads and the work done to clear Rainey Lake of invasive Alligator weed. Last time we went (Sept. 03) we saw three ‘gators and lots of birds including two varieties of Ibis. It was glorious!
