Hoping some of you gun experts can give me your opinions. I am looking to buy a pistol, have narrowed my choices down to a Glock Model 17 or a Browning High Power both in 9mm. Really like the Glock, but it does not have a safety while the Browning does have a safety. The Glock is hammerless which I like, but the Browning has a single action hammer mechanism. Really don't know much about.... Read More
Tried to get this going a few years ago but ended up moving out of stat, back in LA now. Was thinking after the season, everybody who wants to, try to meet up somewhere and put the names to the faces over a few adult beverages and tell stories, lies, make plans to hunt the next season, etc. Obviously we are scattered througout the state, but we could do one in several areas of the....

Looking into purchasing a used White Water Bay Boat. I know they don't make them anymore and that is a concern. Wanted to hear anyone's opinions good or bad, and hopefully someone knows why they are no longer in production.

I read Sunday that it does not look like the LDWF will get any money from the general fund. It seems like the Dept. has been strapped for cash for years. Wanted to know how all of you felt about increasing license fees. With the cost of gas skyrocketing, not to mention the cost of guns, fishing rods, camo, etc. I wouldn't mind an increase since I am going to continue to hunt and fish. The.... Read More
Couldn't hardly sleep last night for watching The Weather Channel. That front coming through has and will be dropping
5-10 inches of snow from Tulsa up through Chicago. St. Louis is getting hit pretty hard right now. All of the snow on the ground should push the ducks our way. Hope everyone has a productive weekend as we put the first split in the books. Heading to the camp this morning.... Read More
With all the talk and excitement of duck season just around the corner, I wanted to share some info. that could affect our best friends and trusty hunting partners. Took my 9 year old Lab to the vet for her yearly shots and physical and to have a "bump" on her back leg checked out. The vet stuck a needle into it and checked the drawn fluid out under a microscope. It appeared to be a.... Read More
Hoping someone might have a rainfall total from yesterday and today in the Ferriday-Jonesville area. Have a duck lease in that area and would like to know how much rain that area has received. Hoping to save some money by not having to pump water on the fields, diesel is still pretty high.

Heading to Grand Chenier on Oct. 12th. Not familiar with that area at all. Was wondering how the trout, redfish, and crabs were biting? Also need to know if the 15 speck per person limit is in effect in that area. Any advice would be appreciated.
Was curious as to what kind of conditions the marsh in SE LA was in with duck season approaching. Wondering what the effect of the storms coupled with the low rivers may be on what the ducks feed on down in the marsh. Any info. or thoughts would be appreciated.

Was wondering what some of your opinions would be in regards to the buck with the broken antler. Not sure if it is a genetic defect, broken in velvet, or the result of an injury to the buck's body. The 10 pt. on the right is in an earlier post. Seems kind of soon for these bucks to be together. Thought the secondary rut might just be winding down. Pictures were taken in Washington Parish. ....
