Anyone fishing around the New Orleans Flood wall?
I hear they are catching specks and reds.
I'd like to take my dad but I don't know what to use for bait.
Can anyone help?

A group of Fathers are looking to start up a hunting club just for the kids (Yes, they will be Supervised). We all were raised hunting swamp in lower Louisiana but we do not want the kids to hunt this way. These kids are way too young and I have never seen hipboots that small. The last thing I want is my kid to loose interest because they see no deer. Therefore we plan to build box stands, build food plots and add feeders. Also build trails if need be.
We have about 12 guys that are interested.
If anyone knows of about 500 acres of land for lease in Louisiana or Southwestern Mississippi (around the Homochitto) please call me. Corey. 225-235-7514

Hello, My name is Jordynn Delatte. I just made 10 yrs old August 6th. My dad is letting me put my first spotted Fallow on here because he is proud of me.

We were hunting in Austin, Texas at Casa Brior Ranch the weekend before Hurricane Gustav hit Louisiana. I shot and killed this Fallow with my grandfather's 7mm-08 on August 31 at 7:30am!

I had a great time in Texas. My favorite part was when all of the animals came out but, they were not the ones I was wanting to shoot.

My dad also killed an Axis Buck on Saturday August 30. I really liked the deer he killed!

Just look at that smile on my 9 year old daughterÂ’s face after she slays her first deer. I am so proud of her.

The date was December 2nd. This spike came out into the food plot at 7:15am. She raised her Rossi .243 and took aim. As soon as he turned sideways, she put that bullet thru the heart. Shot was about 60 yards. After the shot she started shaking from the rush. I climbed down to look for blood while she stayed in the stand. When I got to the location where he was standing, there was blood all over. I looked back at her to give her thumbs up and the biggest smile I have ever seen from her came across her little face. I began to track the blood and about 40 yards he layed in a brior thicket. I pulled him out onto the 4 wheeler trail and as you can see in the first picture, she is all smiles.

Now this is what Hunting is all about!

Of course the last picture shows that I could not let her have all the fun.

My dad and I are headed that way tomorrow morning.
What bait should I use?
I have some frozen shrimp taken out.

Chris, that is great. I'm happy for her. Holla at me some time so we can hook up and go hunting somewhere. I'm getting geared up to hit some Game Management Areas.

Yeah man. Been hitting the swamp pretty hard this week. So far I put down that 8 pt, and 2 does. Also, I got 4 hogs so lets say we are making some sausage.

Sounds like Chelsea is doing great! How old is she now? Are you still in the hunting club in Clinton? Did she kill the 2 buck there?

A comment titled: That is JUNK! in response to a report titled: C'mere Deer

I purchase some of that stuff and put some out near a stump where I have been seeing lots of sign. For the next 5 weeks, I did not see the first deer track, rubbing, or scrapes. So I gave the rest of the bottle away and now that guy is pissed at me.

A comment titled: You can get them at Walmart in response to a report titled: thermo-cell

I personally think after about 3 to 4 years of hard use they need to be replaced. I also have to push the button about 7 or 8 times to get it started. But hey, for less than $20 bucks you can't beat it.

I have never tried the scents but if I see them, I just may try a pack.

I got proof that the Thermo Cell a matter of fact, I was using it when a 195# 10 point walked under my stand. And when I say under my stand, I had to get up out of my seat to look down thru the window. Now he's hanging on my wall.
