Read below and notice the sponsor of these hunts. I guess it is similar to the ND Bighorn Sheep auction - but that is a Bighorn - not ducks. Guess you can see why Sen. Lott from neighboring Mississippi becomes involved with duck politics - $$$$$$$. :******:

Donations and charity aside, 25K per hunter is a lot of money. I hope the LA W&F is using this money for a good purpose.

I may be wrong, but I read it as 25000$ for two days for 12 hunters. Still unreal, but not unbeleivable. Tom

Yes - I believe you are correct Mr. TSODAK.

Still 25000/12/2 = $1041 / day per person.

This about 3 or 4 times the cost of guided hunts with meals and lodging in Louisiana. These outfitted hunts are often run at very fancy lodges.

For the average man in Louisiana :eyeroll: lottery hunts are scheduled the day after the big $ hunts : These are big ticket $$ hunts too.
