Sorry to hear about your accident hope yawl are ok. Is this the famous Louis Brothers from Monroe.
Get a Big Magnet, tie it on a string. Go back and find them. it isnt as hard as you would think.
As soon as the river goes down we gonna strap on the dive gear and go get um back
Sorry to hear of your adventure I am a diver and have been for 3 years. I I have retrieved guns in my gear before( mine of course) if you would like I could help u out give me a call and maybe we can work something ou to get ur gunsback
Good quality floating gun cases are cheap compared to a $1,200 shotgun. DUH!
Man Reeshard, that should make them feel better!
Hope you find them, but if not give me a shout. I have a SBE ported, back bored, sure-cycle for sale for $800. It's got a lot of shots through it, but no probs. It's just loud with the porting, so I got a SBEII. I live in Sheveport, but my hunting camp is near Leesville, so I could meet you sometime and let you shoot it.
If you can get there in a bass boat, see if you can get someone with a Humminbird Side Finder or one of the new Lowrance Sidefinder/downimaging units to look for them.
big magnet on a rope. We had a guy about 10 years ago lose his gun in the Hwy 51 canal in 25' of water. He got the gun back a week later after going out there with a big magnet. Don't give up.
westbay bandit ive got to know who you are? a buddie of mine just brought me a 5ft magnet i was trying with one a lot smaller with no luck . the river is droping fast .it should be around 8ft by the weekend but the water temp is 44 hope thats not to cold . as faf as a floating gun case sh.t mine will have life jacket lol.
...tell'em Geronimo !!!...It's on page 426 in the chapter "Euphoria Overload" ???...vol.IV under "Hot Rod Canoes ???...cheers
maybe you should read a little more (3 person or 855lb) maybe you should stay on dry ground never seen a rabbit swim any way
Keep us posted on if you get your stuff back. Good luck!
If magnet doesn't work you could maybe try a shrimp trawl if feasable to pull it there.
i have 2 20gauges i no longer use there bird killers for sure and a 12 gauge pump your welcome to borrow. plane jane mossburgs
i dont think it would work its a small river with alot of logs and limbs. there in a small area maybe 20ft x 80ft at the most the problem is high water 13ft and current i took one of my other guns and put it in the same kind of soft case tied a rope to it and threw it in so i knew were the xtrema would be at then i took it out of the case and tied the rope to it and threw it in and it didnt go 6 or 7ft and it hit the bottom so they are close i just need the river to go down if the magnet doesnt work then somebody is going diving i dont know what it will coast but i would like to have them before duck season is over
thanks for the offer but im going to try to find my guns until the mallards move in then im going hunting and that should be now so tomorrow may be the last day i look until its over
a buddy of mine lost his in a bayou when the bayou was very high went back with a magnet when water went down. the magnet wasnt big enough to get it up. Got a frog grabber and got his gun back. just another idea.
thanks fo r all the ideas keep um coming ill try them all...BUT DUCK HUNTERS TAKE MY ADVICE BUY FLOATING GUN CASE AND TIE A ROPE ARE WHAT EVER WORK TO YOUR BOAT AND GUN CASE ITS EASY TO FIND YOUR BOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you are by any chance a member of the NRA then you have a $1000 insurance policy that will cover this incident
i use to be but not any more. i would prefure my guns back the extrema seem to fit me perfect and my son loved his SBE plus it was the first gun i gave him for duck hunting
i went and tryed the big magnet on luck jus a few shells and 2 choke the river has droped some its falling a foot a day should be 6 to 8ft by the weekend . the current is what im conserned about no gun or guns is worth anyone getting hurt and the water temp is 39 thats cold! i dont know what yall can dive in so let me know when yall think yall will be ready
Man....glad you're ok and can make it to hunt another day but you get the Darwin award for this one. $3,000 worth of guns in the drink that could have been prevented by spending $60-70 on a floating gun case.
MAKE NO MISTAKE i will recover them. my wife loves to brim fish so ive found her new fishing hole and my new swimming hole
It wont be a problem if I can find someone to borrow a drysuit from
i think i know who has one he told me he has one 5 days ago
If you are a NRA member they have an automatic lost or stolen gun insurance rider for 1k.
its on the way
west bay bandit need to talk to you i got the suit it says xxL but it looks small the river is at stand still and some what clear its 9ft to 7ft e mail your number to firstname.lastname@example.org
You got mail
Any luck finding them?
no i havent had any luck im waiting for the river to go down . im going to bring the BBQ pit and spend a little time fishing and swimming . hopefully will get to see just how good beretta and benelli are .
heard if you are a memner of the nra and this happens they pay up to 1000 dollars. I don't know how true luckily i have not needed to find out. hope it helps.
Bummer; donít give up Louis I had an old uncle that used to hunt with us he always kept a small 3 or 4 hp engine attached to his transom on the left side of his main 40 horse motor. One day he showed up at the camp and after unloading his boat he notice the small outboard was missing. He had a bad weekend at the camp that trip. Well uncle Wiley was a retired welder and had all the necessary equipment to make him self a grappling hook to drag behind his boat to try and find this motor. Now we are talking about a drag nearly 14 miles long down the Boston canal in Vermilion bay. The following week he left early Friday to take the time to troll for the missing motor on the way to the camp. Low and behold half way there he hooked that motor. We where all shocked, that motor was under water for 1 week! With a little clean up that motor ran like a champ and was used for years afterward.
im not going to give up . if the river will ever go down.i love going to the river and grilling hamburgers or what ever the wife has ready.she love pearch jerking i use to say i would lose here to a river rat. but not this summer ill be with her hunting for my guns
