Went to make a hunt there this past week. Arrived to where I wanted to go,but I did not see any birds moving. Good thing I brought the poles. I caught a mess of trout and reds on artifical. I did eventually see some birds flying, but not enough to warrant leaving the fish biting. I did notice the birds were landing in a pothole that would not be reached by boat. The land seemed hard enough to.... Read More
Going to make a a cast and blast trip next week. Can anyone tell me an area that will let me get my 1648 flat with a 40hp outboard in and have decent shot of hunting? I have never hunted there and would appreciate any advice on how to navigate out there. I will be bringing a pirouge and plan to just hunt potholes or any area I do not get stuck in. I willhave not bethe able toto scoutyour due.... Read More
Went and scouted today at Big Branch. I dragged the pirogue about a half mile to launch, and paddled into an area that looked promising. I did not see ONE bird. I then drove down Lake Rd and still di not see a bird. Did I miss something or is this usual for BB?
I am looking to purchase a boat that I will be able to hunt and fish from. I can I only afford one, so buying two is not an option. I would like something that will allow me get out to Biloxi WMA safely. I have never been, but I am hoping that someone who has can give me advice. I hunted the Pearl and noticed several people out there with bigger boats dragging a pirouge into the ponds. Just.... Read More
So I am reading through the LDWF regulations and Im trying to figure out how to do some hog hunting in Pearl River WMA. I understand you can take a hog with what ever is legal for that season. So that leaves gun deer season and squirrel season. Well it says Spring squirrel season does not allow hog hunting. Then I read a 'properly licensed hunter' can take a hog from Oct-Feb. How do I hog hunt.... Read More
Going to hunt Pearl River WMA in a few days. Everyone helped out so much with providing info on getting the woodies, now I want to spend one day after the other ducks. I noticed there arent many pond marshes that are easily accessed. Would I throw my decoys out on the little cuts coming out the river or do I need to get to those really shallow ponds? Any info would help. Thanks.
So I have only been duck hunting a handful of times in my life, and I was reading it is good to start learning the ropes by hunting wood ducks early in the morning. I have 12ft flat and a 5hp outboard. Where can I go and stand a good chance of shooting??? I went to Big branch last year and didnt even raise my gun. Now when I got back to the launch people were saying some guys limited out on.... Read More
Im plan on hunting in the spillway this month. I am looking at there website and it says I need an additional permit to hunt there. I keep calling the number provided and searching the website, where is this permit at? I plan on shooting ducks if that matters. Thanks in advance.
Today I drove to Cabelas and noticed alot of people hunting off the I-10 between Laplace and Gonzales. I saw tons of posted signs and the ones I could make out said "DMAP". I also saw a wildlife agent out there on the way back. I think people were hunting deer for fact I saw rifles. How do I hunt there? I live in Kenner and would like to try hunting that area. I am thinking the back of.... Read More
Does anyone know where I can get out and do some target shooting with my shotgun? I live by the spillway. I know I can hunt and shoot a gun there but I cant shoot trap. I went and shot at the South La gun club a few weeks ago. If Im not a member it cost $10 for a 25 trap round. Its too much for me. I also found a place in Belle Chasse but I have never been yet. I know there is the Honey Island.... Read More
I plan on heading to GI this weekend early in the morning for some surf fishing. I also plan on buying that float net thing from Academy with the rod holder for 20. My GF will wear a inflatable PFD. I figured I would be ok with the float net thing. I dont plan on going any deeper than my thighs. I need help with how to to fish it. Im trying to get the safety part down cause I really dont want to.... Read More
