Members first off thank you so much for your engagement the last couple of weeks about the OG. We appreciate every share and every new member that has joined.

We are working diligently providing our members with the most up to date information possible as timely as we can. 

June 2020 Update - Louisiana Sportsmen's Coalition

The meeting last night and the turnout was awesome. The building could only occupy 44 people and I think concerned citizens made up around 40 of that number. At least 15 spoke up including myself giving this board all they could muster as far as public outcry. They listened, allowed us to vent our frustrations even though this board had zero authority to really stop this thing. 

This is not something someone is trying to do illegally. The corporation that filed for the permit and this board are doing everything by the rule of law. 

Next Steps

The next step in the process is the review by the corps of engineers. This will be where this thing flies or dies.

Please keep up with our Facebook group and join our email list if you haven’t already. 

That is what we need our members to understand. To fight this thing we need financial support. Vocally and in person is great and from time to time we will need that presence.

But everyday of every battle we fight it cost money.

Encourage the people around you and the businesses you break bread with to Join or donate to our cause.

Those who know me best know I wouldn’t be involved with The Coalition if I didn’t believe we are doing what’s in the best interest of the sportsmen.

We are a voluntary board of directors and we will stay that way until this access issue is resolved. I am telling you that in my two years of service everything we do and have done is discussed, voted on and transparent.

This coalition is doing the work that’s not being done by bigger name for profit groups. And we are doing it for the sportsmen of the state of Louisiana. 

Thank you again for your support and turnout. It really Inspired me and confirmed we are making an impact please keep the pressure on!! 

Tight lines!

    The people who are putting up these obstacles,do not enter signs,turn around go home signs must launch some where!!! i’m sure they use the closest one to access their so called leases.If I cant fish that area do to restrictions by these people I will & so will others not use those facilities therefore that business will loose revenue.it’s simple get the marina /launch operators to restrict leases holders in that area who have gated,dammed, signaged what was at one time unrestricted access to go somewhere other than here to access your so called lease ,money talks & its loudest when it comes out of pocket.
