It looks like Mississippi is going to eliminate all primitive rifles and allow you to use modern rifles all season long. I'm really saddened by this as I use to look forward to real muzzleloader season every year. Since the introduction of single shot rifle season the deer on most average clubs have taken a serious hit. Now let them use the good old 300 magnums everyday to finish decimating.... Read More
Hey everyone I'm looking for a lightweight plastic auger approximately 1 1/2' to 2' in diameter about 12' long. I was thinking something in line out of some type of food processor or small product mover. If anyone knows where I may find these please let me know. Thx
Best use of your deer. I use to just cut backstraps and filets out my deer and use them in many different ways. I remember a conversation I had with a hunter I know who is a fine foods consultant for high end steak houses around the country. He has an old refridgerator in garage with eyebolts in top to hang his meat. He hangs his meat 33 days but he says it has mold on it but thats when it's.... Read More
I've been having a good run on the bucks. Last year I got a few real nice bucks, one with my bow in Illinois and the big 8 right outside Brookhaven with gun during rut and lost a great buck over in Natchez. Starting off good this season arrowing this great 15 pointer in Illinois. He has 4 broken tines but still a warlord. He was chasing a doe and stopped him and made a great shot, he only.... Read More
Hunting lease going up and up. I've noticed that many of the timber companies are going up significantly on prices on their leases. Most of my friends and myself included lease from paper companies and have had substantial price increases. Most of these lands are of lower quality almost purely pine yet my friends leasing agent told him get ready as were going to raise your price till your at.... Read More
Alright everyone I want to make my own premium fresh deer sausage. I deboned and deskinned meat and purchased Boston butt but need a good recipe or place to get sausage mixfrom near Metairie. I just want a good regular sausage recipe. Tried Winn Dixie as their fresh sausage is very good but butcher said it comes to them already made but didn't know from where. Thx for any help
Alright everyone I'm looking for some really good game cameras and looking for opinions. This is what I want in a camera. 1. Camera that takes good clear pictures day or night. 2. Camera that has fast trigger speed. 3. Camera that can take a second picture quickly, no 10 or 15 second recovery time. 4. Smaller bodied camera if possible. 5. Prefer camera that uses double A batteries than.... Read More
All I can say is I had a great week this past week. Started out taking my nephew crabbing in Lake Ponchatrain and we caught 101 crabs according to the counter I bought him, more than 50 were giant number 1 males. Two days later my friend called just before lunch and asked if I wanted to try the sacalait ( a bad day fishing is usually better than a good day at work except for the pay) so off we.... Read More
I want to thank Louisiana Sportsman as I picked up a beautiful old handmaid cypress Armoire off sportsman from a guy near Port Vincent or Port Barry off Amite River. The piece is what I needed to complete my office/hunting room. It's beautiful.
The thunder chickens are starting to get real vulnerable, the hens are leaving them to go to nest later in the morning. This is your chance as even the old unkillable boss can have a bad day in this scenario. Found some gobbling birds last 2 weekends and had them fired up but they wouldn't leave hens but they knew a new hot hen was in the neighborhood just 100 yards away. Snuck back at lunch.... Read More
Wow turkey season is upon us and turkeys are gobbling already and have been for at least two weeks. Anybody out there need any gobbler fans to make gobbler decoys. I use full strut decoy when bowhunting with real gobbler fan. Well I cleaned out the freezer and have 11 mature gobbler fans I am willing to donate for decoy fans. You can take 2 of them and dry them out spread out and put them.... Read More
Went to classic weigh in and it was a great event, enjoyed very much. It's official KVD is the baddest fisherman on the planet. Wow, 5.6 lb average today for KVD. I catch alot of fish when I cover water in Catouatchie but never anything remotely resembling that weight, a 3 lb average is good for me. Awesome.
I was fortunate to tag another nice buck. I killed this nice 8 point this morning near Brookhaven. I've tried him a few mornings and every morning I tried sneaking in there he was there and would come over in the dark to investigate thinking I'm another deer, this is his core area right next to his bed. He just hangs out there early in am trying to intercept deer as they head back to pine.... Read More
Cape gone, went to good use. Thx Darryl for making good use of it, was way too pretty to let go to waste. In addition to helping someone out I met a really great guy and made a good friend.
I was fortunate and killed a gorgeous 9 point this weekend. This buck has a beautiful cape and big neck. He weighed 175 pounds. I have too many mounts and don't want the cape to go to waste. If someone.... Read More
Had a real neat but unusual hunt sunday morning. Right after daylight a spike comes under me and feeds on lone red oak that is dropping. A little later two gobblers come eat a few acorns. Later after the deer and turkeys leave I hear a noise below me in leaves different than squirrels and look below. About 15 yards away a snake is poking his head out of hole about a foot looking around. .... Read More
Hey everyone I was thinking about deer season only being about 60 days out for most of us and I still have alot of deer in my freezer I didn't utilize this year. Thinking about starting a little Sportsman deer drive. Lets see if we can get names of people who are severely impacted by oil spill but aren't working for BP and could use a hand until they get back on their feet. IF anyone knows.... Read More
