EDITORS NOTE: Capt. Paul Titus, Louisiana Sportsmans GPS guru, is an avid deer hunter. He and a group of buddies have been hunting public land for several decades, and they have incredible success. One of their favorite areas is Clear Creek WMA.
Four months ago, I was wondering if the waters around Lafitte would ever be the same. As the oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster crept through the passes down to the east of Grand Isle, it looked like one of the most fertile estuaries in the world had finally met its match.
Last season on Pearl River WMA, my focus in the Katrina Woods was browse, primarily blackberry and trumpet creeper vine. I found several areas where the trumpet creeper was being heavily eaten. Other items to focus on are travel trails, especially along the sloughs and bayous.
