Goose Hunt

Just wanting to know if anyone can recomend a good guided goose hunt in Louisiana.I checked out all the guides on the Sportsman but really want some opinions.I used to hunt in Gueydan but the guy that used to let me hunt moved up north so I have no where to hunt geese anymore.I went on a guided goose hunt in Tx.last year and will never go back there.

I would check out other camps... Just talk to a few people who have hunted with him before you book a hunt. I know of alot of people that were very disappointed.

Goose Hunts
Yes, do not give your money to dougs! Its a waste of your money!!!!!!!!! I can not explain to you the horrible trip we had with out cursing on line but I am telling you I went into this knowing goose hunting is harder then duck hunting and you have to catch the right day but this guy does not know how to run a lodge.

Beware of horrible goose guides

Where not to book a duck/goose hunt
Do not book a hunt with Cajun Wildlife Adventures. Worst experience I have had in 42 years of hunting. Did not deliver on anything promised.

Don't know how they are still in business.
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH CREEKCREEK. CAJUN WILDLIFE ADVENTURES IS THE BIGGEST RIP OFF. I KILL MORE DUCKS AND GEESE ON MY LEASE THAN THEY DO ON THEIR GUIDED PROPERTIES. IN CASE THEY CHANGE THEIR NAME, THE GUY'S NAME IS KEVIN BABINEAUX. THATS WHERE ME AND SOME FRIENDS WENT ON OUR SENIOR TRIP IN 2002. YOU HAVE TO PUT A DEPOSIT DOWN BY MONEY ORDER, WHICH I DON'T MIND, BUT WHEN I GOT UP THERE HE HAD THE NERVE TO TELL ME HE NEVER RECIEVED OUR MONEY ORDERS. WE TRACKED THE NUMBERS AND FOUND OUT THAT HE DID INDEED CASH THEM IN. WELL, THE NEXT MORNING WAS THE HUNT. HE SET US UP WITH SOME OTHER PEOPLE WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IN A BLIND THAT WAS ABOUT 10' LONG WITH A TOTOL OF 6 PEOPLE. THESE OTHER GUYS WERE FROM SOMEWHERE IN LA LA LAND. THEY WERE THOSE PEOPLE THAT BUY THE $500 CHEST WADERS, RNT DUCK CALLS, AND $2000 SHOT GUNS. ON TOP OF ALL THIS, THE GUIDE, WHICH WAS THE OWNERS NEPHEW, COULDN'T BLOW A DUCK CALL TO SAVE HIS LIFE AND HE WAS THE FIRST ONE SHOOTING WHEN THE ONLY FLOCK OF DUCKS CAME OVER US. WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!!!!!!! BUT THOSE SLICKERS THAT THEY STUCK WITH US HAD THE TIME OF THEIR LIFE AND SAID IT WAS A GREAT HUNT....WTF, I GUESS THATS THE PEOPLE HE MAKES MONEY OFF OF. THE GUIDE LOOKED AT ME AND MY FRIENDS AFTER THESE OTHER GUYS TIPPED THEM, AS IF WE WERE SUPPOSED TO TIP HIM. I TOLD HIM,"YOU AINT GUNNA GET CASH TIP FROM ME, BUT I WILL GIVE YOU SOME DUCK CALLING LESSONS". HIS REPLY WAS SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF" WELL, YOU CAN'T GET THEM EVERYTIME". I SAID YEA, BUT WHEN YOU ARE PAYING FOR A GUIDED HUNTING TRIP, THAT IS WHAT NORMAL PEOPLE EXPECT. BOTTOM LINE......DON'T GO THERE. GIVE ME THE MONEY, I'LL BRING YOU IN MY BACK YARD, KICK YOU IN THE NUTS AND BLOW THE REED OUT OF THE DUCK CALL, AND YOU WILL GET THE SAME FEELING.

Well I appreciate all the comment and the story is a classic.Cajun Adventures was one that we had looked @ however I had a bad feeling about him.I have already experienced a bad trip myself and don't want to go through that again.If anybody has a good lease I would gladly pay to make a few hunts with you,we could even swap hunts if interested.Thanks again.

What do you hunt?
What kind of hunt will you swap a duck hunt for? If you do find a good goose guide though, please post it on here. I am wanting to go make a good goose hunt where they just keep comming and I keep shooting. Look at my posts from this year, I am doing pretty good so far this year as far as the ducks go.

Guide in Welsh area
Call Mark Atwell, he's a straight shooter on hunting conditions and has a champion goose caller Bill Daniels working with him. Hunts in rice fields in the Welsh area. Mark can be reached at (337) 479-2101.

I personally have only hunted ducks and mourning doves with him, but I have never been disappointed.

Well I have some pretty good ponds here on the Northshore,but it doesn't look like you need anywhere to hunt ducks.We have a good pack of hog dogs,when the season opens on the management area we catch quite a few hogs.We do hunt hogs in other areas but thats usually when someone calls with a hog problem or just wants to make a hog hunt with dogs.Could also go up to the deer camp when theres not to many people there.
Thanks for the info doggunit I will give them a call.

goose hunting
I also hunted with cajun wildlife adventures. This past weekend as a matter of fact. The hunt was terrible! The people were really nice and the food was really good as was the lodging. But the hunt was aweful! We saw alot of ducks and geese but they where not coming where we were. I was really expecting a better hunt because they told me they were getting alot of birds. But I guess thats what you get when you really dont know the area or the people.
