Hunting in Louisiana
I know there is a formula for figuring this out, but i'm sure someone already knows the answer. Which will go in the shallowest water: A hunter, with all his gear, in a one man pirogue(12 ft) or a two man pirogue(14 ft). Yes, the one man pirogue is lighter, but does the

two man pirogue displace enough water to make up the difference?

Where would you take your bow to have the draw length shortened? How much should i expect to pay to have it done? Not sure exactly how much, but probably 2 in, maybe.

Pirogue has 2 leaks. One crack in a V shape about 2 inches total. Another about the size or a quarter. Have you had any success using the fiberglass repair kits from Auto Zone or Walmart? Is it too difficult for a complete greenhorn to do the job?

Can i get some info on using a pirogue to hunt with. I'll be using a pirogue to get to some areas to hunt this year. I always carry a spotlight, but are some type of lights required? I'll have a life jacket, but is it required? Also, do you have to be out of the pirogue to shoot? Thanks, and any other info you would share would be great.

What is this 'gun show loophole' these pompous blowholes are talking about closing? Every time i've been to a gun show if i wanted to buy a gun i had to submit paperwork for a background check.

Got the unexpected news yesterday that my dog is heartworm positive after being on Ivermectin for years. Other than the $800.00 treatment the Vet wants to do, has anyone ever had any success doing something different? I see where there has been success using a treatment of Ivermectin ( 3-4 times the usual amount) and Doxycycline for 33 weeks. Anyone have any experience or thoughts?

My 13 yr old has expressed an interest in bow hunting. I certainly want to encourage him. I've never bow hunted in my life, only rifle and muzzleloader. I need a place that will not only sell the bow, but set it up and show us the right way to start. Someone mentioned Chags in Metairie. Any other places in the Metairie, New Orleans area?

Trying to help out a newbee to deer hunting. He's looking for a 270 or 30:06 and on a budget. It looks like the guns that fall into his price range are the Savage Axis, Remington 770, and the Mossberg 100 ATR. I've heard the goods and lots of not so goods about these guns. But, its the only way at this point to get him in woods. Which of these guns would you go with?

How should you dispose of old ammo? Not a large amount, but loose 22's, 9mm, 270, shotgun shells. Some are rusting, some may have been under water.

Anyone purchasing firearms thru GunBroker? Other than the purchase price and shipping, what other costs are there? I see that firearms must be shipped to an FFL licence holder, what is that and is there another cost for that? I see that there are some good deals to be had on GunBroker if they don't nickel and dime you to death with add on fees. Any good or bad experiences with them? Thanks

The blood sucking mosquitoes are here. My labs are on heartworm meds, but i'd still like to keep the mosquitoes off of them. I'm currently running a large fan at night that they like to lay in front of, but thats a problem when it rains. Anyone doing or using a product that does the trick?

Deer Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
Seems like every day i see another big deer has been taken. Great job by all you guys and gals. It seems like this many big deer is alittle unusual. Or do you think we are just seeing more because of the posting of the stories and pictures? I'd like to belive that our deer herd is growing larger in numbers and in body and rack size. What do you think?

Those blood suckers are back. My dogs stay on heartgard year around, but i want to keep the mosquitoes off of them, especially at night. Last summer i kept a box fan blowing all night and they would sleep right in front of it. The box fan works, i just wonder what everybody else does.

People, I do not know who huntr is, but IF what he says is true, then we as sportsman need to rally around this man. No single man can take on the Law. And if what he says is false, then I hope huntr gets what he deserves. Having said that, If these people in law enforcement are doing this, they need to be stopped, now!!

FOUND! Thanks to all who helped and to our neighbor who actually found him. Buddy is very weak, did not even want to stand up, not sure what happened to him, but at least we have him. We have more questions than answers, but that's not important now. Thanks again everyone....  Read More

Why was that perennial pot stirrer Spike Lee on the Saints side line with a Jets jersey on? If you want to wear a jersey, is't there one Saints player that like enough to wear his jersey?

I have a 9mm hand gun in my night stand for protection. I travel for work , so a couple of nights a month my wife is the protector of our home. She seems a little afraid of the kick of the 9mm. Looking for a hand gun with a little less recoil, but big enough to stop a home intruder. What do you think? Thanks
