This will be a first for me, unless my eyes are playing tricks on me. Does this picture look like it is of a goat? Never seen one in the woods before at this spot and I have hunted there for decades.

Deer Hunting in Outside Louisiana
Yesterday was opening day of bow season at my land in Mississippi. Made the drive up early. Saw nothing on the hwy the entire drive up (2hrs)... until I turned on to the gravel road leading to my place. Saw six (4,1,1) deer on that last mile in!

Did I kill anything? Nope. Didn't even bring my bow. Did all the work I was suppose to do a week ago when I was sick. It was a good trip....  Read More

Good luck. There is a virus going around. Puking out of both ends and then just weak for a long time after. Hope you don't get it. Trust me it sucks.

OK. Number 1. It is freaking HOT.

Battery died this morning and had to delay Toni and I's departure till I could get jumped off and get a new battery. Planned on leaving before five but ended up leaving at 5:45 am. So much for the early start.

As we were approaching my neighbors (hunting club) gate that I have to go through before I even get to my land. I see a bigish deer....  Read More

Offshore Fishing in Louisiana
Made my first trip offshore in awhile. I don't think I have been more than a handful of times in the last 8 years. I think that is going to change.

First my brother stopped going, then my dad stopped going then lost all my gear in a house fire so I stopped going almost completely after that.

But after this last trip which was far from awesome, I think the fire has been....  Read More

Have you heard the news? ALL... I repeat ALL of the gulf states have basically told the NMFS to go take a flying leap!

All gulf states are currently noncompliant with the federal gulf red snapper season.

I cross my fingers and hope an prey that the next step is for all the gulf states to get together and make Red Snapper a game species like was done with Redfish many moons ago....  Read More

My middle daughter Carley is in the hospital. Three trips to the emergency room Saturday,sunday and Monday and I had to complain to get her admitted.

Gastroparesis is what it is.

What is it? Food does not leave the stomach properly or at all. With her right now it is not at all. Food just sits until you vomit it up. The muscle at the end of the stomach isn't....  Read More

Just read about this. Thought I would pass it along.

The scum at the NMFS who have been doing everything they can to push recreational fisherman out of the Red Snapper fishery have fired off their latest volley.

The latest volley comes as a response to the push to up the recreational side of the fishery to 75% from the 49% that rec's are SUPPOSE to get but never do despite NMFS....  Read More

This question is directed to any recreational fisherman that fish for red snapper.

NMFS cut the season to 11 days and that will likely get shorter because of further actions due to noncompliance. This latest cut is the result of a lawsuit brought by a number of individuals.

Would you knowingly do business with any of them?

My answers is No! What is yours?

Ok need a little help. Some trespassers vandalized my bushnel trail cam. The stole one battery and pulled the wires from the battery bank to the camera. Figured it would be an easy fix.

First try at fixing it failed. wires going to batteries was pulled off and broken. So I reconnected some of my own wire to the batteries and have the proper voltage at the end of my new wires. But when....  Read More

Ben nearly a month since I have been able to make a deer hunt. yuck. But I finally made it back into the woods.

The rut is happening now in SW Mississippi. Saw four bucks yesterday.

The first was a super tall spike. About 10 inch spikes that were straight as an arrow. Never have I seen anything like that. I have seen tall spikes but they always have a curve to their antlers....  Read More

OK, we all know cougars aren't suppose to be in Mississippi and only a very few have recently been confirmed in Louisiana.

Normally a sighting occurs in the woods with only one or two people catching a glimps of it. But this time it is a little different and I was hoping someone could help me clear this one up one way or the other.

I got a report from late last night of a cougar....  Read More

Two new bucks on camera. One is a young ratty 5 and the other is a big eight. I continue to get a bunch of pictures of a young eight and he even showed up once during evening shooting hours.

Little 5 will get a pass. Hope the big eight shows up first because I am not likely to pass on the smaller 8 point if he is the first buck I see. I am just not the disciplined.

Went deer hunting today and I didn't kill anything but it was good just being out there and seeing deer. Most of them running as I scared up quite a few while moving around doing work that should have been done last spring.

But it was a decent hunt and I saw something I have never seen before. I was walking out from my morning stand a bit early (9am) so I could do some work. As I walk....  Read More

Sorry for being absent the last few days. My oldest daughter was in an auto accident and has been in the ICU with a broken collar bone, broken ribs, breathed in water almost drowned, bruised lung and other things. We expect a full recovery. Just wanted to let everyone know what's up!

Seat belt probably saved her life. Probably here looks as well.

Not wanting to preach here but I....  Read More

  • Not a good picture but it is the first trout I caught up there.  Caught it on a wet fly.

Went to the smokies with my brother and sister, mom and dad and lots of kids. 19 of us in all I think. Had a blast. We stayed in a cabin that had a game room and we had a fun every day.

Rained most days and that messed up the fishing a bit so didn't do as much fishing as I had planned on. But learned a lot and it was all fun.

I didn't take many pictures myself because it always....  Read More

Well day two is in the books. Picture below of what I have done so far.

What you see here should have been done in one day. But OMG it takes forever to move the material to the spot. Fully half of my 1.5 days of work on it so far amounted to .75 days moving material and .75 days of actual work. That includes breaks to keep from dying.

OH MAN the sun was freaking killing me. Seriously at....  Read More
