I had pics of this deer for the past 2 years, only one in daylight. He finally slipped up and gave me a shot at 5:05 Saturday afternoon. One shot from my 7 mag dropped him in his tracks. The deer had a 15 inch spread and weighed 205lbs, killed on Westfeild Hunting Club.
I have been fishing the Pointe Aux Chene area for 40+ years and yesterday put the icing on the cake. My wife and I were fishing anchored in a bayou along with several other boats. We were all about 50 to 60 yards apart and were all catching fish. These two guys pulled into the bayou and pulled along side of my wife and I about 15 yards from where my boat was anchored, where we were casting,.... Read More
Great day for Team Skill-N-Talent today. Launched from Seringe's around 7:30 and hit our spot in Little Lake around 8. Started off a little slow with the water temperature still below 50 degrees, but once the sun came up it was on. Had 50 around 10:30 so we decided to go back for a quick break and come back out. Caught our second limit in a little under 2 hours. Only 4 or 5 throwbacks all day.... Read More
I have a 270 WSM and have been shooting 150 grain partition the last few years. Having trouble finding boxes of them. All I can find are 130 grain ballistic tips. Anyone have any info on the ballistic tips? I'm sure I will have to resight my rifle, which isn't a problem. Just want to be able to have basically the same result as my partitions did.
It was my 7 year old son who wanted to go hunting on a Saturday morning and sit in an open ladder stand with temperatures reaching 30 degrees at daylight. Because we were late getting up, breakfast was not an option to get to the stand on time. However, I was prepared with a bag of wheat thins in case my son got hungry. As soon as I reached for the wheat thins, I looked up and say a deer.... Read More

Any anglers out there have a little free time to help me navigate the marsh to the east of Leeville? One would assume the larger canals are the deepest but that definitely is not always the case. Also, are most bays safe to cross? I'm curious of water depths on an average day. Which canals are safe (3-5ft) and which are questionable(2-3ft).Thanks

Had the pleasure of taking Mickey, Gwen, Dustin and Stephanie from Baton Rouge out fishing yesterday. Had a great day. We caught 100 trout. Fish are biting on live shrimp, but just as well on plastic like the Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad.

Why are so many FFLs in Louisiana ignorant of the gun laws. Even a large chain like Academy doesn't know the laws. They wouldn't sell me a long gun because I have a Florida driver's license. The law has been changed for years and they are not aware of it yet. IGNORANT
