Louisiana Hunting

Shot placement

“The target area you’re aiming for is about the size of a grape fruit,” Lafleur said. For that reason, shot placement is everything. A heart and lung shot is ideal, but one that disables the bird due with an arrow in the body so that it can’t fly away is also lethal.

No turkey hunting in March

Yes, that’s right — for the first time in the lifetime of this author there is no turkey hunting in Louisiana in March.

Insane Blast and Cast Hog Hunt

Venice, Louisiana is one of the top filming destinations for Sportsman TV. Over the last 5 seasons, Greg Hackney and Producer Jared Serigne have a filmed a number of episodes in Venice ranging from bass fishing, duck hunting, redfish, red snapper and tuna fishing. The crew has always had a good time and gotten their episodes done when they go to Venice. This episode was no different. For this show they hooked up with Capt. Kevin Drury of Limitless Waterfowl Outfitters. Kevin took Greg and Jared for a Venice style adventure in his Gator Tail boat and motor.

Tuning up for turkeys

Editor's note: This story was written in conjunction with Kenny Long.

We have a love/hate relationship with our turkey shotguns — if they knock over a big gobbler on an improbable shot, we love them and take the credit. But if the gobbler runs off after what should have been an easy kill, it’s always the gun’s fault.
