The Good: Friday started off good with a long boat ride up the river with a few friends and kids to our select hunting spot. We had a short trip into the hardwood bottoms that was overlooking the hills and oak trees. I was able to get settled into a tree top, as it was breaking daylight I spotted a doe that had already slipped by but behind the doe was a basket rack 9 point that gave me a....  Read More

Nothing like a good hunt on public land. Me and my buddy went down to Sherburne WMA on Sunday morning in hopes of shooting some feathers, reports in the area were conflicting but as most people say a bad day in the woods is better than most days regardless. Anyway we had a nice group of woodies/ teal fly in early, I missed on my three shots and my buddy's gun jammed; not a great start. Later....  Read More

Hi,

I hunt the marshes for duck season and I fish the Atchafalaya Basin year round, and I want to start duck hunting the basin as well. Can anyone share a little advice on how to scout the basin timber areas for ducks. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Forgive the potentially ignorant question but I ddecided to bow hunt on wma land and read that residents between age 16-59 will need an archery license but I can't find anywhere in Louisiana that offers bow hunter education.is it something I just tack on when I purchase my hunting license?

Gonna be camping and riding ATV's at Sandstone Multi-use trails next week. Thought I might try to make a hunt on the RDNWP while there. Anyone got any tips? Looking at satellite map views, it appears there may be food plots scattered about? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Is it any wonder, after reviewing the facts regarding the fees Louisiana charges compared to Mississippi, why Mississippi is the leader of the two states in so many Wildlife Management Areas?

From first hand experiences, Louisiana WMAís, like the PRWMA (Pearl River Wildlife Management Area), have always struggled through low budgets, and Rangers claim they canít afford to put rocks on....  Read More

Nightmares After checking the game cameras this weekend, I have a new respect when walking to my stands in the dark. Last week was my first encounter with a black bear in the wild and this week itís a huge alligator and adult male bear that are visiting my stand frequently. It was amazing to see an alligator in the middle of the woods with water a ľ of a mile away from my stand location. My son....  Read More

I am looking to do some hunting this year on some public land. My buddy is coming in on leave and is bringing his bow. We are looking to head out in to the woods and either go after a hog or deer. We are in the New Orleans area but wouldn\\\'t mind driving a few hours as long as we can pitch a tent somewhere. Is there anything that we should know, or anywhere we would have decent....  Read More

Went this weekend and put in some scouting to locate the deer honey holes. As usual for this time of year, we did see some deer sign and it looks like another promising year.You would swear the deer numbers are low but the camera donít lie, all deer are taken on week days not weekends, the deer know what day Friday is. Just remember keep your camera high in dry are you will surely donate it.....  Read More

I was thinking about taking a trip to Richard K. Yancey and let the hounds tree a few coons. I was looking for some information on the woods, is it big hardwood timber? Swampy? Thick underbrush? Also, I noticed that on the northern part of the wma, which is where I was planning to go, it looked like there are agricultural fields on the boundary. If I am correct, does anybody know what is planted....  Read More
