Trailer Inspections in response to a report titled: trailer inspections
Lanyards & calls
This is a sore spot with some but it will help some of us. The Bayou Sorrel Boad launch is full of trailers with no plates and the boats don't even have numbers on them. So when these outlaws steal your traps, tresspass on your property or run your lines, you cannot even get a boat number. I have reported this to LDWF and nothing has been done. Maybe this will help sort out the sportsmen from the crooks. Thats the way things go the bad make it rough on all of us.
We have been fighting this problem for 18 years. We hang posted signs with ladders and they still take them down or shoot them down. I have had people look at me and say I have hunted here all my life. They do not care who owns what, they do not care that you have a lease and pay good money for it. They do not care that you are picking up their bottles, cans and worm containers or crawfish feed sacks. The only way to get ahead of this is to get license plate numbers, take digital pictures and press charges. I get boat numbers and have the Sheriffs Dept send out letters. They don't come back but there is always someone else to take their place. You are not supposed to have to post any longer. People are supposed to know where they are and know if they are allowed there. RESPONSIBILITY. When you are dealing with this type of folks they really don't care.
We took the course the last week of Jan at Precision Firearms and Shooting Range in Baton Rouge. The have great instructors and small classes. The range is right there also. Call for an appointment now, you need to book probably a month in advance. Classes fill up quickly.
I just spoke to the state land office about this yesterday. I was advised that if a waterway was not a state claimed waterway by 1812 standards the property owner can stop traffic on this through water. It can be posted or gated, or nothing, it is your responsibility to know where you are and where you are legally allowed to go. Go to the state land office site and you can see what is considered to be "State Claimed Waterways". The 1812 standard is a waterway where steamboats traveled in 1812. It is very plain and also in the state of Louisiana you do not have to "give" anyone access to land. In this state you must purchase a right of way. Learn your realestate laws and your state waterway laws. It is very simple and it all goes back to respecting others property rights. You can also call the State Land Office he is very helpful and will explain everything to you.
Respect what is not yours, if the property is posted the boundries do not move due to flood or high water. The reason this is such an issue in this state is due to the crawfishing people. They do not respect anyones boundries, they enter your hunting property when you are still in bow season. They damage your stands, steal your climbers and feeders, and they know that they do not belong there. They make dams that finally break your bridges so they can crawfish longer. We have given people permission to crawfish our properties just to keep the locals out and the locals end up stealing their traps. There is not way to beat trashy people.
Make sure you know where you are hunting, posted still means posted. For some reason people in boats think that being in a boat gives them the right to hunt anywhere. Make it a point to find out where you can hunt and where you cannot.
I know a lady the went to Cabela's on Saturday. She found a used gun that she wanted. She tried to deal with the salesman but he said that he could not go down at all. She brought her husband back to the store Monday and bought the gun for $50.00 less. Make sure you go for this purchase, so not send her. IT IS STILL A MAN'S WORLD AT CABELA'S
This has been an ongoing problem in the Ramah/Maringoin area. When it was reported to LDWF they said to hang the state regulations on them and maybe the builder would move them. The jerks tore the regulations off and hunted it anyway. But now.....I really like this MOTH BALL idea, I will definately report the results. Hunting certianly can be a challenge.
State property is just that STATE PROPERTY, there are rules and regs to follow, which are mostly never enforced. It is against the law to build a permanent stand on state property. If the law is enforced, whom ever is in the stand is ticketed, no matter if that hunter built it or not. For the Idiots out there, thats why they make climbers. There are clubs that put permanent stands on state property and charge people to hunt them. Where ever you decide to hunt follow the rules, this is a SPORT, not a competition! We do not do this to feed our families. if that were the case I could stock my freezer with T-bones and Porter House steaks for the amount of money we spend.
Thank the Good Lord that we have people like these to save people like those. Why do we risk our lives to stay with stuff. We came into this earth with nothing and will leave with nothing. He who dies with the most is still dead, Count your blessings daily!
