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
I have a 2007 Honda rancher, that runs fine, but when I stop and let it idle, it kills and back fires when I try to start it again. I ran a tank of mid grade ethanol free gas through it and it ran great,when I filled it up again I put regular ethanol gas in it and the problems started. Could it be the grade of gas or is there something else that could be causing the problem. The bike.... Read More
I planned a trip to fish this afternoon for a couple of hours. I was hoping to fish before the front came through. It looks like the front is coming earlier. Should i skip the trip or should i try to fish since it is the very beginning of the front. i will only fish between 3 and 5. i am going to try the marsh within a couple miles of the marina. thanks
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

I am having an issue with a rifle I just purchased. It's an H&R .270 single shot crack barrel. After sighting it in 3 shots, the 4th, 5th and 6th misfired. The hammer hit the firing pin but did not discharge! Also, after firing, the cartridge did not eject. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Hog population has steadily been growing unchecked. It is now a full blown epidemic. The way the current regulations and seasons stand hunting will not begin to alleviate this problem. I have been hunting this area over 30 years and have never had this kind of interference hunting deer. Whether it is from the food competition or just for some reasons a bioligist would know, the problem needs.... Read More
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.
We had a great long holidays of hunting this past week just north of Natchitoches, LA. With 4 does and 2 bucks on the table our freezers will be full for a while. My girlfriends sister Laura took down a big 9pt down with her .270 on Nov 27 that weighed in at 193lbs. So far it had been a great weekend of hunting but we decided to make one last hunt on sunday morning and it was hot around 60.... Read More
The new addition to Absolute Fishing arrived yesterday. Capt Travis and I made the maiden voyage in the new Gator Tail today. One stop had our limit of trout before 8am. We made a quick move into the shallows hooking 12 reds before 9 am. Easy as it gets right now in Dularge. Our trout today were caught tightlining Green Hornet Matrix Shad, and Kamikazee Vortex Shad under a cork in 2-4 ft of.... 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.
Ben and LJ joined us this weekend. LJ had applied to 5 wma youth hunts unsuccessfully so Ben had seen my posts and called me. After passing several deer sat. morning and seeing nothing sat. evening luck smiled on LJ sun. morning.
