Mandeville hunter shoots awesome 180-class buck in Folsom on Jan. 4
Chad Bordes, 29, of Mandeville, with the 14-pointer he shot on Saturday, Jan. 4 in Folsom. The buck green scored 180 inches Boone and Crockett.

Chad Bordes had never shot a wall-hanger before, but he knew the first week of January was typically prime time to shoot a nice buck during the rut on 1,200 acres he hunts in Folsom.

“Every year around January 2nd is when a decent buck is taken there,” said Bordes, 29, a captain with the St. Tammany Parish Fire Department. “It seems to be the first week of January every single year, so I tried to get out there to see what’s going on.”

Handgunning for varmints
Armadillos can destroy a field, rooting up the ground in its search for food. That makes them perfect targets for varmint hunters, since no one complains when they are shot.

We were never overrun with those juicy targets we read about in the big sporting magazines — articles by guys who referred to their shooting cult as “varminters.”

Enjoying the freedom and adventure of 'life at the camp'
Life is relaxing in Concordia Parish at the Apex Predator's camp, which features great on-site fishing as well as awesome opportunities for public land hunts just minutes away.

Anyone who has ever had one knows that special feeling when you arrive: the easy escape to freedom and adventure where your worries just seem to disappear.

I’m talking about that indescribable joy known simply as “camp life.”
