Sportsman's Paradise

Louisiana is a Sportsman’s Paradise and Southwest Louisiana offers a lot to sports enthusiasts, particularly outdoor sports. 

 
World-class salt and freshwater fishing are found along the Gulf Coast, and local charter boats offer deep-sea fishing excursions in the Gulf.    Fowl and game hunting of many types are common across the five-parish area.
 
Collegiate athletics are featured at McNeese State University as a member of the NCAA’s Southland Conference, offering a variety of FCS (Division I) male and female varsity sports, including baseball, football, softball, and basketball, among others.    Livestock shows and rodeos also draw some of the largest regional audiences. World-class recreation facilities are another draw for statewide and regional sporting competitions, including swimming, baseball, softball, soccer, and many other sports, for all age groups.
   
Local casino resorts often host marquee sporting events shown around the world, from horse races at Delta Downs, to Olympic boxing qualifying bouts, or tournament gatherings of all kinds.
