My boy had a blast in Colorado fishing in some still waters off the White River. Here is his "hog" Rainbow Trout. It's not the biggest one he caught, but it's the biggest one he landed. AWESOME job Bubba ! ! !
Just a few pics from an outing this morning with the family. We broke in two first timers this morning. First redfish for the wife, and daughter. Wife caught a nice 24 incher and 4 others, Son caught a limit, daughter caught a few, and I caught a couple.
I say this because any season I am able to go hunting is a perfect season. Shot more ducks this season than last season, but it's been awfully slow for the last several years in the marsh below St. Mary Parish. Last season 1 Widgeon Hen. This season, Two Mallard Drakes and a Bluewing Hen ! ! !
What a hoot. My family was invited to hunt and fish private land in Baton Rouge this weekend. My hat goes off to Keith and his family for opening his home to my family. We fished from the time we got there in the early morning and caught bass and sacalait. We were still fishing when the dinner bell rang for grilled fresh sausage and ribeyes served with some of the best smothered potatoes.... Read More
How 'bout The Good Ole Days
I started hunting with my best friend and his dad when I was 15. We had plenty hunts with other friends as well and they still stick in my mind as if it was yesterday. Waking up early and eating 'pip tarts', drinking water from that COLD aluminum cup on the back of the Anna Lee. Shooting the 22s after the hunt to pass the time before the afternoon hunt, and so many.... Read More
What are your opinions on hunting guides that hide birds with bands so that they can get the band?
I know all of them don't do this, but I've heard of plenty of them that do. I personally disagree with their thinking that they are "due" the band because it's them that puts the hunters on the birds, and it's them that do all the work before the hunt. .... Read More
I'm seeing a lot of the same. Here is a post I put on this site two years ago. I feel the same today as then. I've never seen it this bad.
Guys, I have been hunting in South Louisiana for 24 years. I have 850 acres that on average is well above average for anywhere in the country. There are 4 of us on the lease and we have averaged 200 ducks annual harvest. That is, until last year. .... Read More
We had several shots, but few hits this morning. Two Wigeons and that's it. We were picking up and as usual, two flocks of Mallards came in, so we had to get the guns out of the cases and reload while I called 'em in. A few broke off of the larger flock and gave us some shots, but busy calling, I wasn't loaded, one gun jammed, and the other gun missed. Fun hunt, as usual. Ate the ducks for.... Read More
Here they are again. All of these deer were purchased from Antler Ranch outside of Fort Worth Texas. Don't know where they were shot, but they were purchased from Antler Ranch, a breeder ranch well known for their HUGE racks.
I have been looking at my father's family book recently put together by his first cousin. My grandfather told me over 20 years ago about how his family used to own land near Houma when he heard that I had become part of a duck hunting lease. He told me how they owned hundreds of acres, possibly somewhere near 2500 or more acres, they would hunt meat for food. He could remember how his.... Read More
I was able to fill my "non-resident" tags in WV over Thanksgiving week. I was allowed one buck and one doe. I saw the only bucks the entire week and took my first buck, a fairly young 6pt that was estimated at 151 lbs. It was 122 field dressed. I saw three bucks and 6 does on Monday for the opener and 5 does Wednesday. All together I shot my buck and a doe, the landowner shot three.... Read More
