    He got a promotion. Still at LDWF, but he's leaving the waterfowl end of things.

    Running Rockefeller Refuge, I believe. Can only hope the next guy takes the job as much to heart as he did.

    A whole lot of LA duck hunters don't know how fortunate they've been.

    larry has always been great with me, we respected each other when I strongly disagreed with him. He had a no win job, always someone unhappy with his decisions or something completely out of his control, and probably received way more criticism than compliments. A lot changed during his tenure, and I believe he always listened to everyone from the diehard to the occasional hunter, as that was his job.

    Good post. May have been one, but I've never known a waterfowl program manager in any state who was as publicly available and transparent.

    Louisiana being Louisiana, where public officials echo their perception popular opinion, no matter how ill-founded, when not hiding behind closed doors, Larry's been a real breath of fresh air.

    Very interested to see who takes over and what a new change would bring about. Not a knock on Larry, he’s just all I’ve ever known.
