Panelist Bio


Dave Moreland
Louisiana Outdoor Writer

Dave Moreland holds undergraduate and master's degrees in biology, and spent 30 years working with the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. After serving 15 years in the field, Moreland became the state's Deer Program manager in 1992. During his 12 years in that position, Moreland worked to manage the statewide deer herd. He collected physical data from harvested deer, performed nutritional studies and helped monitored the state's deer for chronic wasting disease.

He closed out his DWF career by serving as the agency's Wildlife Division administrator, overseeing all work of staff biologists. After retiring, Moreland began Outdoor Roots to provide such services as wildlife consulting, wildlife surveys, habitat surveys, seminars and workshops. He also is an active outdoor writer.

He is a member of The Wildlife Society, the Southeast Section of the Wildlife Society, the Louisiana Chapter of the Wildlife Society, the Louisiana Association of Professional Biologists, the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Associations and the Quality Deer Management Association.

Moreland has written six books, and has been published in numerous journals and magazines. He also is an associate member and official scorer for the Boone and Crockett Club, the Pope and Young Club and the Longhunter Society.

Current Topic


     11/17 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.

Louisiana Public Square explores some of the challenges that the state’s hunters and anglers face on “Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?” Wednesday, November 22 at 7p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, November 21)
