Growing up there was always talk about how the area around lake Maurepas was so great in the late 1970's all the way to late 1980's for waterfowl. My opinion the reason this area fell off the map was because the introduction of Salvania. The Salvania has created a blanket on top of the water and does not let any aquatic vegetation grow, which in return the ducks do not have feed. From above,....
Be careful and watch your pets.
6 inch barrel 7 shot 357 used for size reference. Track is round in shape. Located on the deer/hog lease I hunt on which borders the east side of Chicot state park. These pics were taken on the lease 200 yards from the park fence on the 4 wheeler trail.
Hey guys, does anyone have a phone number for Dee Dee in Lafitte? I brought home my buck yesterday and want to get it mounted. I was referred to Dee Dee and Mr Jerry, Mr Jerry at SE phone seems to be disconnected. I normally get my deer mounted at TobyToby's in AL where I hunt but I'm bringing this to a local taxidermist. Phone number please?? Thanks!
On December 22, 2015, I fought my brother for the box stand instead of the climber before the hunt began. I ended up with our box stand, so around 3:00, we went to our spots. I was watching a couple of does for about 30 minutes when this beauty walked out and I shot. He ran about 30 yards, but unfortunately, we didn't find him until after dark. 240 pound, 10 point stud my first time hunting on....
Always use some thing like a 12' x 12' concrete side walkway block. There about 2' thick so that way it will not rot and last for ever and keep the legs from sinking and rusting away. I also connect cables to each side of the stand at my plat form under the sitting plat form then use a house trailer anchor and screw it in ground until its tight to keep the wind from blowing it over.
Nailed this big 10 point January 23rd in the basin with my bow, during gun season, public land. Don't get any better. 17 yards broad side muzzy mx3 lung shot, ran about 80 yards. 180 pound 10 point. 7:05 in the morning, raining and cold.
After several years of disappointing Duck Hunting, I've began to deer hunt (try). I have a 2 Arpent wide by several hundred yards long of what I call floating marsh grass. I see plenty of signs of deer along the canal that borders the marsh. I'm 150 pounds and I can barely get through the marsh with out sinking. I have a few questions to ask you fine Gents. Do you think the soft, flooded marsh....
It's been a while since i posted, but i figured i'd put up my kills from the 2015/2016 season at my camp in Bama. After years of hard work, and culling out some bad genetics, i am finally killing some decent deer on the property. A good 9, a decent young 8, and a really old/tall 7point i had never seen, that bottomed out our 200lb scale.
Hello everyone new to the area (New Iberia) trying to locate some public land I can take my son out squirrel hunting on. Any help would be great not looking for an exact spot just a general area. Don't got a boat at the moment so that limits me. Anyone looking to get out is welcome to join me.

It was December 31st and my last chance for a deer for 2015. The alarm went off and after spending the past 2 days tracking a friend's deer I was tired. My wife rolled out of bed to duck hunt and couldn't believe I was going to sleep in. After some encouraging words I was convinced 20 minutes later to get up. It was duck hunting Thursday and after having duck hunters under....
Had a pretty on/off season similar to most folks I spoke to. Started promising with an early 4 man limit opening day and spiraled downward from there. More teal than anything with the occasional grey duck to get excited over. Even managed to squeeze in a spontaneous trip to Oklahoma! Here's a video with a few hunts from our season, hope everyone enjoys.
Looking for an area within Tensas NWR or Big Lake WMA to squirrel hunt in February. I grew up deer hunting on Tensas and have not been up there in Years. Just looking for some general areas that are not low lying and full of hollow trees. Short timber stand areas with vine thickets. Any information would be appreciated.
There have been public meetings throughout the state regarding next years duck season. Anyone been and have anything to report?
Anyone have an educating reason as to why we can't have a season that extends into the first week of February?
