My group and I traveled to the Tensas NWR for the Thanksgiving Lotto hunt. We saw 8 deer, 5 bucks, 3 does, 6 hogs and a bear. My buddy killed a doe, I killed a 194lb 4 point, main frame 6 with the left side of the rack broken off, and my wife killed her first rack buck, 160lb 8 point, on public land and her first hog, 162lbs.

I got a cool video of a bear in the Big Lake WMA on Thanksgiving weekend. If you watch the video, the bear steps closer to my tree and a simple noise made him/her run away. They are curious animals, not aggressive ones, but after my hog attack last year I didn't care to get close up video. Good luck hunting and remember to enjoy the great outdoors! Sorry I have NO idea what the video Embed....  Read More

First and foremost I would like to thank everyone that had reached out to me and kept me in their thoughts and prayers. I took a big hit, which shut down my hunting season, but regaining my health is more important. If you're interested, here's my story.

I took some vacation time on January 29,30 and 31, and headed to Tensas for a last bow hunt. We did not see any deer, but plenty....  Read More

I took a few days off of work and took the wife, dad and friend up to Big Lake WMA for the primitive weapon season. Total, we saw 8 deer, which was a little slow, but thats hunting. Sometimes we see more deer and sometimes less. My wife started hunting with me in 2010 and killed her first public land deer (Doe) in Januray 2013. On the second morning of the hunt I shot a 130lb doe out of one....  Read More

HOG WILD!!!!! I took a trip out to the Pearl River WMA on December 26, 2013, to make a morning hunt. I set up in a spot that I have some good buck sign, hoping to get a look at him. At 8am I caught movement and shot the larger hog as she was walking on through my area at about 25 yards. At 830am I saw 8 smaller pigs feeding my way, then they turned and began to feed the other direction. I....  Read More

We saw this bear on Hwy 888 in Tensas Parish. I love seeing the bears, such a cool sight in Louisiana.

I went up to Tensas NWR for the Thanksgiving lottery hunt with my wife, dad and two buddies. The weather got cold a week prior and stayed cold throughout the week with another colder front on Thanksgiving day, which had me excited. The weather was 25 degrees on Friday morning with very little wind, which made it perfect, however my wife disagreed, she wanted it to be 65. With the weather....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Northeast Louisiana
Well, after a great weekend during the Thanksgiving lottery hunt where my hunting party of 5 saw 18 deer and killed five including 2 big bucks, the primitive weapons hunt this past weekend wasn't so deer friendly. My buddy did get a running shot at a really good buck, but his bullet appeared to hit a branch. I did not see a deer and the hot fresh deer sign that I saw a week before was old....  Read More

Just for the guys who don't have a place to go, I will report all my trips to WMA's in Louisiana this hunting season. I will report what I see, kill and my experience with my hunts.

I stayed home from the deer camp/lease in Mississippi this weekend due to the hot weather. I decided to take my 9 year old nephew, Jeffery, squirrel hunting. We were looking for Jeffery's very....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Louisiana
As I read through the post of numerous hunters looking for land to lease or wanting a place to hunt, I can't help but think of the UNLIMITED public land oportunities we have in the state of Louisiana. I have a lease in Mississippi with 1000 acres to hunt on and I'm more excited about making my Louisiana WMA (Pearl River, Big Lake and Tensas NWR) hunts. Every year I leave my lease behind....  Read More

It's July, hot, humid and the last thing on your mind is hunting. But now is the time to start getting ready. Look over your gear, make sure your have what you need and if you need something start getting it now. The pro shops will get busy come August and even more busy in September. Get your orders in so you can try out any new equipment you might get. Waiting until the last minute will....  Read More

Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
I grew up hunting the Pearl River WMA. Over the years I have witness the area close due to high water, only to open back up when the water level dropped below 16.5 feet. The area was closed twice this year, September then in January. Each time this high water occurs Oil Well Road usually remains closed after the reserve is opened. This is understandable as Oil Well Road washes out in a few....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Louisiana
The deer season is once again coming upon us. I see some post on Louisiana Sportsman in reference to guys wanting advise on how to train a dog to track deer. Here is my opinion on this subject.

I have a male Lab that has been tracking deer for 8 seasons. We have a great recovery rate on locating downed deer. As a bow hunter I've always tracked my own deer, before I got my dog. I was....  Read More

Does anyone know the water or HIGH WATER situation in or around the TENSAS NWR. I have a camp in Big Lake campground and was wondering if its gonna stay dry or be under water. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated.

Deer Hunting in Northeast Louisiana
Well, the deer season is over for me. Me and a couple of friends headed to Tensas for the last four days of the season. We had OK weather with winds out of the west southwest. Deer were seen by my two friends the first two days, but neither were able to get a shot. Sunday it rained all day, but we managed to get out in the woods while they had a break in the rain. I saw a Doe, just out of....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Northeast Louisiana
I'm heading to Tensas for the last four days of the season. I went to Tensas/Big Lake on the 7th , 8th and 9th, but did not see a deer and very little sign. The woods were very dry and the leaves were fluffed up on the ground, so I couldn't see any tracks, dropping and the old scrapes were covered up. I did hear some deer chasing one afternoon in Tensas, they got within 75 yards, but never....  Read More

  • 7 point buck 140lbs
  • blood on her face for her first kill.
  • 8 point buck 155lbs
*****Beginners LUCK******, here's how it goes. My girlfriend made a few hunts with me last year and during one of those hunts she spotted an 8 point, which I shot. This year she wanted to do the shooting so I bought her a H&R 243. She shot a good group at 100 yards, so on Thanksgiving weekend she met me at the camp and we hunted our food plot. The plot is 250 yards to the other end, so I....  Read More

Does anyone know how many applications Tensas took in this year for the hunts and does anyone know of anyone who put in for the lotto hunt and did not get picked?

  • 8 point buck 170lbs. Copiah Co. Miss.
  • 8 Point
Well, the scouting paid off. Opening day brought in two nice bucks and this 8 point was the bigger one of the two. It weighed 170lbs had a 12.5 inch spread, 19 inch main beams and 4.5 inch bases. Not the biggest deer but a good deer to start the season. Good luck hunting!
