Avondale Scout Reservation Hunting

 

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana: The Istrouma Area Council Board of Directors Executive Committee considered all the concerns related to the upcoming construction and installation of shooting ranges, climbing structures, and aquatic areas. Safety is always our first concern. Therefore, for the safety of all involved, there will be a NO Hunting at ASR Policy for the next two years. This will give the Council Properties and Risk Management committees time to evaluate insurance needs and define safety protocols before any kind of hunting resumes.

We will continue working closely with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in herd research and management.
