Slug shotguns apparently are not a hot item because no one in the Lafayette area seems to carry them. Guess I will have to order it. Narrowed my choices down to either the Rem 870 or the Browning silver. Anyone know where is the best place to order a gun? I called a few places in the Pineville area but they want to order/sell the gun for the same MSRP price as the Browning/Remington.... Read More
Has anyone seen any signs of rutting activity at Red River WMA recently? I shot this lil 3-point on 3Jan11, but haven't seen any scrapes. Rubs are fairly easy to find, but I guess this crazy weather has got them all screwed up. Guess I'll try again next week for muzzle loader season.
Went to the camp Thurs/Friday to do some scouting. After making a squirrel hunt Friday morning, I went check a spot where I killed a spike last year. By that time (1300hrs), the wind was blowing pretty good, so I didn't feel the need to be too quiet. As I was walking through the woods, off to my left I could tell that something jumped up. Then I saw it was a hog. I had a partial view of the.... Read More
I've heard that there is a public launch at Intracoastal City. Can someone give me the name and directions? I was trying to get to the west side of Vermillion bay from the locks at White lake but they wouldn't open them. Thanks.
Just wondering what type sunglasses you guys use (guides included) when freshwater/offshore fishing. I'm getting a free pair of Wiley-X sunglasses(rebate offer after purchasing an abu garcia revo stx), but I really want a pair of Costa Del Mar's. I've also heard that amber or vermillion lenses are better at being able to see below the surface of the water. The blue lenses look pretty cool.... Read More
In comparison, I know you shouldn't put a cheap scope on a high quality deer rifle. But some of these rods (prices) are just plain outrageous. Perhaps it's the $39 price tag, but all my rods are Shakespere ugly sticks. They are extremely durable and I haven't broken one yet. Are the real expensive rods that much better/more sensitive which helps you catch more fish? Who pays $300+ for a.... Read More
During the later part of the season, I put out a mixture of deer caine/persimmon buck jam/and some other concoction which consisted of rice bran, soybean meal, corn, and apples. This stuff smelled so good, I thought about eating it. I hunted over this bait pile for two days and saw nothing. Went back a week later and there were a few tracks around the stuff but most of it was still there. I.... Read More
If you hunt WMAs in Louisiana, I'm sure you are aware that we can't use tires larger than 25 inches. However, LDWF does state it is ok to use 26" tires on UTVs. It makes no sense to me for them to allow 26" tires on UTVs but restrict ATVs to 25 inches. Nonetheless, does anyone think that they might change the law for next year and allow 26" tires on ATVs? I just bought a new.... Read More
Was wondering if anyone knew how much these camper/trailers were sold for at this public auction. Some of these mobile trailers look like it would make a perfect camp. I passed there yesterday and there's still a ton of them out there. Not sure if they weren't sold or if they just waiting to be picked up.
Killed this spike at Red River WMA on Saturday at 1300hrs. I was creeping in the water (into the wind) and could hear something in the water. I thought I caught a glimpse of a hog, but about five minutes later, this spike just appeared out of nowhere about 20ft away. Needless to say, that's when his day ended.
I just noticed on the website that the 2010 CAN-AM 500, 650, and 800 is 86inches in length. The regulation pamphlet states that atv's can not exceed 85inches in length. Has anyone had a problem with this while on a WMA and do you really think an agent will give you a ticket for your atv being one inch longer? I've never seen an agent attempt to measure my four wheeler. The only thing I've.... Read More
Several new ATV's come stock with 26" tires. If I'm not mistaken, the pamphlet still states ATVs are restricted to a 25" tire, but UTVs are ok with a 26" tire. That doesn't make much sense to me. Does the state expect everyone that buys these new larger ATVs to immediately change the tires just to go on a WMA?
