Well they did it again! Our elected 'representatives' went to Baton Rouge and found another way to squeeze money out of Louisiana citizens and business. This time it's the golf cart industry and any resident who owns or hopes to own a golf cart. In their infinite wisdom, our reps have decided that all golf carts sold, new or used, lifted, custom, or plain ole stock now will need to be registered with the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles. Although
I'm sure any of these reps will tell you they had our best interest in mind, I'm thinking if you follow the cash you can make your own decision about whose interest was on their minds as they voted. Lets see who may benefit from this new law.
Perhaps it's the consumer who will benefit? Nope, I can't see a single consumer benefit from this registration. Maybe you can now use your cart on the street? Nope, this is an offroad registration only. More cost will be added to the purchase up front, and you will now have the pleasure and cost of another registration to keep up with in the future.
Is it the golf cart dealer who will benefit? As a golf cart dealer myself, I can assure you first hand this will be a huge set back for my business. First of all, the paperwork will be a major problem. As a small business owner/operator I spend an average of 12 hours a day at my business now, this new law will create paper work I just don't have time to do. Besides my end of the paperwork, I will now have to employ a title company to process these registrations, as well as take care of the notary work. Since there are no new profit benefits to having to register every vehicle I sell, there are no more funds created to allow me to pay for these services. So where will the money come from to pay for the registration and notary fees not to mention the State fees charged for each and every registered vehicle? You guessed it, the customer will have to pay these fees! After all, when you buy a car, motorcycle or ATV, the customer pays the State Title fee, the State handling fee, the State Off Road Sticker fee, and don't forget the Notary fees! The State says no problem, they will allow me to charge you a document fee to cover my end, after all, its just money, right!? More paperwork for me the dealer, more cost for you the consumer, and who profits from all of this? The State of course!
Before you get mad at us dealers for passing these cost to the customer, understand that this economy is hard on everyone. We small business owners are not exempt from high costs at the gas pumps or grocery stores. And I can promise you, I don't know any rich golf cart dealers! This new law will increase my workload and decrease my sales volume because of the higher end prices. As far the commercial end of my business, I have no idea how those customers will feel about having to register an electric vehicle he uses to run parts around his shipyard of fabrication plant. If I was a commercial customer I'd go to any of our neighboring states and purchase my carts. If he buys in Louisiana, I have to charge him registration fees. What's the chance of the state going onto his private property to check to see if his golf carts are registered?! I don't know how this will play out, but this may be a great time to be a golf car dealer in any state close to Louisiana. Leave it to Louisiana politicians to find yet another way to push business across the state line! If this angers you, look to your Representatives who saw another way to take more money from the people they represent to grow State funds they get to spend. If this doesn't anger you, just wait, it's just a matter of time before these self serving politicians get thier hands into something that hits you close to home. Once again these politicians who we elect to serve us have served themselves. If there was just one benefit to either the dealer or golf cart consumer, I could maybe understand the reason for creating this new law. But all I see is another way to squeeze the Louisiana resident. If this angers you as it does me, call your rep. Good luck getting an intellegent explanation, I sure didn't!

I have a new 80lb thrust 24v Minn Kota Riptide trolling motor on my boat. It has lots of power, and handles my 18' boat well. The problem I am experiencing is with grass. When this motor gets into grass, its stops way too easy. I can lift it out of the water a couple of inches and let it throw the grass out and its all good again. For a motor with as much power as it has, it just seems to get bogged down way too easy. I called Dixie Trolling Motors today and was told they are all like that. Is that the way these new motors are? If so, I want my old motor back!!

I've just returned from a week of deer hunting, and had 2 bad experiences with my newly purchased 7mm-08. Tuesday morning I shot a 185lb 8 point at 60 yards. The deer was quartering toward me in fairly thick immature pines when he caught my wind. I was able to locate his front shoulder in my scope and squeezed off a round as he turned to retreat. At the shot the deers chest nearly hit the ground, but he regained and I heard him run for a longer distance than I expected. I found no blood, and only found the deer by luckily walking up on him some 80 yrds from where I shot him. There was no blood trail, and only a spot of blood the size of a golf ball where he expired. When I cleaned the buck I found the bullet had entered high shoulder and did not exit. The trauma was massive, but no blood trail.
The next morning I had a similar experience with another buck of about the same body size. This buck was running does and stopped shortly quartering away from me @ 40 yards. I placed the crosshairs on his left side, high on his back and squeezed off a round. At the shot his right front shoulder collapsed and I saw the white of his belly briefly as he hauled butt out of there. He was chasing 2 does and I saw 2 other deer run at the shot. With all those deer running it was hard to listen to what was happening with the buck I had just shot, but I know I heard him fall about 40 yards from me before apparently getting back up and going some more. Two hours later I was crushed to once again find no blood trail. I was hunting 125 yards from a clearcut and expect he made it there. With no blood trail to follow, finding the buck was impossible.
I'm shooting Remington ammo, 140 gr. Core-lokt bullet. I have had great results with this bullet out of my .270 in the past and have trouble believing the ammo is to blame. I had heard good things about this caliber, am I missinformered. Is the 7mm-08 to light for deer unless you have that perfect broadside or neck shot?
I'd like to hear from you guys with actual experience hunting deer with this caliber.

thanks in advance!

Hey guys, I need some help. I recently purchased a portable building to use as a hunting camp. It will be delivered to my hunting lease in the Hazlehurst Ms. area, about 30 miles south of Jackson in the next week or two. I'd like to have it spray insulated, but I can't find anyone willing to do the job. I have been in contact with the only two leads I could find. One doesn't do small jobs, and the other has too much work to be willing to go to Mississippi for a job. My building is 12 x 32, and will be raised 2 & 1/2 cinder blocks off the ground. I'm hoping to find someone willing to do this as a side job. I work during the week, so I can only be there on a weekend, but of course I'm willing to do the driving and take care of all meals and cost associated with an out of town job. I'm told this is small job, and the driving will probably take longer than the actual job. If you do this kinda work, or know someone who might be willing to help a fellow sportsman out, please contact me @ 504-737-0646, or email me @ tjpcasey@yahoo.com

Thanks in advance....Tim

Does anyone have first hand knowledge of replacement barrels for T/C Encores made by a company names Bergara?
I see both cabela's and Eabco are are selling them. If the quality is there, the price is attractive.

December 21, 2009 at 9:56am

I have heard there are programs from which you can download an aerial map of a given location, hunting lease in this instance, and then enter your gps locations of stands, bottoms, etc., even map out trail to create a user friendly map. Does anyone know of sites that are able to accomplish this, and maybe recommend one that is reliable and user friendly?

Thanks

I few years back I saw a product advertised that was a full harness/sling seat to be used as a deer stand. After climbing a tree with the use of climbing sticks or screw steps, you would attach the sling to the tree and lean back into a sitting position while using the upper rungs of the climbing steps to keep you positioned where you wanted to be. This allowed you a 360 degree shooting radius by either leaning out or "walking" yourself around the tree for a shot if necessary. It didn't seem like it would be the most comfortable stand, but not a bad idea. I have been trying to find this product on the net, but can't seem to find it. There is a similar product listed in the LSM classifieds currently, but is a little different in that the seat is supported by a set of forks that hold you away from the tree. Although it seems this would make it more comfortable to sit in, it also seems it would restrict you from being able to move around the tree for a shot at a deer approaching from your back side. Does anyone know where I can find info on the original sling stand, or does anyone use the product listed in the classifieds?? I'd like to know the pros and cons of this stand.http://www.louisianasportsman.com/classifieds.php?sec=classifieds&act=full&adID=44891#pictures93863

Anyone using an Eotech sight for handgun hunting? I have heard they are excellent for quick target aquision, but what about distance? I have been told by some that past 20 yards the dot washes out the target too much for good shot placement, and by others that it's the best handgun sight out there. I don't know anyone who has personal experience, any of you have good info from hands on use?

August 13, 2008 at 8:08pm

I've been toying with the idea of purchasing a handgun to deer hunt with. I really like the idea of a revolver and the look of the Ruger Blackhawks, but since I already own an Encore with a 50 cal barrel, I've decided to convert it to a pistol and shoot it a bit before dropping the big bucks on a Ruger. Any of you Encore owners have a pistol barrel you no longer use?? I'm not stuck on any one caliber, I'm open to whatever is available to get me started. Thanks in advance!

August 12, 2008 at 5:55pm

Hey guys. I have seen a few posts here lately about handgun hunting. I see lots of interest in the .44 mag, some mention of the .41 mag,.480 and .460, and a few rifle calibers for the encores. How about the .357, it seems to be a pretty flat shooter, a bit lighter on recoil, and I would think more than enough gun for whitetails. Why does it seem to be ignored??

I took a trip with a friend and my son this morning with Capt. Eric Dumas. Conditions were rough, with south west winds picking up as the day progressed, and no shortage of boats out today. I can't say enough about our guide Eric! If you have ever shared a boat with Eric, you know what I mean when I say he is truely commited to putting his customers on fish! We ran south, north, and south again, burning fuel was never an issue.....he was determined to put us on fish at all cost! His efforts paid off, we picked up a few fish here and there, and caught more than most of the anglers we spoke to. We ended the day around 3pm, when just about all the other boats had given up hours before, Capt. Eric was willing to stay and see what the evening bite might bring us!! Due to family obligations we had to decline, but what a generous offer!! I had never met Eric before today, but after just a short time I felt I had know him for years. We had a great time, caught a nice mess of specks and one flounder, and picked up some great fishing tips from one of the best in the business! Thanks for a Great trip Eric, the fish were only a bonus!

I have a 17'x 50" Tim's flat w/ a 23hp longtail Go-Devil that runs around 18 mph. I no longer duck hunt, and am going to start fishing again. I want more speed, but still want the low water advantages of a mud motor for rabbit hunting, bow fishing, frogging, etc. I'm told that stepping up to a surface drive is the answer to my problem. My question is for the guys who know surface drives, what hp would I need to get speeds of around 25-30mph from my boat with a moderate load, say two guys and an ice chest. I'm not real concerned with reverse, and I know there are quite a few companies selling surface drives, is any one brand standing out in the crowd??? Any information is appreciated.

Thanks

February 16, 2008 at 4:42pm

Can someone tell me the actual difference between the G2 contender and the Encore. I see both can be used as pistol, rifle, or muzzleloader. Is one better than the other, are barrels and accessories more readily available for one than the other? It seems the barrels may be interchangable from one to the other, are the stocks also interchangable?

A comment titled: Louisiana Politics in response to a report titled: Louisiana Politics

Slickhead, before you simplify things too much, motorcycles, atvs, and boats are all manufactured with VIN#\'s. All of the vehicles you have mentioned above are manufactured to be used as a mode of transportation. Because of the limitations golf carts have, mainly speed and short duration of run time they are in a different class and therefore have never been required to be registered. The state is taking a large leap when they classify a golf cart as a motor vehicle. I\'m not even sure at this point how this will be done, the current registration form requires a vin# to complete the form. The fact that the motor vehicle registration form will have to be modified to register a golf cart says it all.

A comment titled: La Politics in response to a report titled: Louisiana Politics

A certificate of origin can be gotten for a new E-Z-G0 golf cart on request, and I'm sure for other major brands also. They are not provided normally because golf carts have never before been required to be registered anywhere as far as I know. I have no idea how the state will handle registration on used golf carts, untill now only vehicles with vin numbers have required registrations. I have made a few calls and from what I am being told we will be the first state to require registration on regular everday golf carts. I don't blame you, I wouldn't register my golf cart to be used on my private property either, which is where one of my issue with this law comes in. I am a Golf cart dealer and I have commercial customers who will now purchase their carts out of state. Why would they go through the trouble and expense of dealing in Louisiana when this is the only state with this rediculas restriction. Especially the commercial customers with locations in those states already! They will just use their golf cart suppliers from our neighboring states to supply them with carts when they need them and avoid doing business in Louisiana. Lost sales for me, thanks Louisiana! You've found yet another way to make a few bucks off your residence, and drive business out of this state at the same time!

A comment titled: La. politics in response to a report titled: Louisiana Politics

Fishhfiles, this registration applies to ALL golf carts, new and used. Wdietz, I’ve been in business long enough to know that once this state finds a new source of dollars they pound it until they extort every dime they can. You will probably have a grace period to get your cart registered before being subject to penalties. I know for a fact that there is an ATV dealers association that hired a lobbiest some years back to make it hard for the golf cart industry because we were taking business from them. I’m thinking their dollars found their way into the right pockets this session. This registration will take effect January 1st 2014, but I don’t know much more than the information in my original post. I’ll start making phone calls today to find out what I can, I’ll need to start informing my customers of these new restrictions and will have to be better informed. My commercial customers will be the hardest hit by this registration. You would think my representative would have contacted me to get my input before voting, it’s not like he has a multitude of golf cart dealers in his district. I haven’t heard a peep out of him. I actually heard about this second hand from a rep of another district. Just another example of our government sticking its hand just a little deeper into our pockets!

I tried to read that whole comment, I just couldnt make myself finish it! You either have way too much time on your hands or a real gripe with Hobie, or both! Paddle, pedal, who cares!? The important thing is to purchase what YOU want, and just get out there and enjoy the outdoors. Before you even attempt to digest all those facts and figures, get out and test whats on the market. I just purchased a kayak a few weeks ago, and found no lack of dealers or other kayak owners willing to let me try what they sell or own. Try a pedal boat, try a paddle boat, you will know right off whats best for you, both have advantages and disadvantages. It aint rocket science!

A comment titled: Pro Angler 14 in response to a report titled: Need advice for new kayak purchase

I just purchased a Hobie Pro Angler 14 and I love it. I've only fished out of it a few times, but I am impressed. The mirage drive is much more user friendly than I expected, and by learning to take advantage of the wind or current available, just a small adjustment of the rudder will keep you on course while fishing literally hands free. It's much morte stable than I expected, and standing to fish is easily accomplished without fear of taking a swim. I can understand what the others have posted about shallow water and the mirage drive, but with just a few precautions, I think most problems can be avoided. I've fished the stumps and cypress knees around Manchac, and when I know I'm going into shallows I retract the rudder and drive fins, and have yet to hang up. Sure, it's something else to worry about, but the advantages more than out weigh the possible issues in my opinion. I'll be fishing bass and bluegill the most, and I don't regret the purchase. Thanks to Chris Holmes for taking the time at the Sportsman Show to answer all my questions and address my concerns about which boat would serve me best! Your recommendation was on the money.

A comment titled: Ray in response to a report titled: Hunting leases

Ray, I understand your frustration, but its misguided in this situation. As another commented, you have to pay to play, the question is how much is too much. I too would love to have a quality piece of hunting property to hunt for free, but that's just not the way of the world today. If we all quit leasing land tomorrow, surely you don't think the paper companies will open it up to you for free hunting? Please don't point the finger at other sportsmen as the reason you can't or won't hunt. As sportsmen we should stick together, not bash each other. There are public hunting areas for people like yourself that choose not to pay for a lease, some are better than others, I've hunted them also. But they are no better of worse because I choose to pay for a quality hunting experience. Good luck and God bless!

A comment titled: greed in response to a report titled: Hunting leases

Our lease went up close to $2 an acrea last year. We ended up increasing the dues by $155.00 per man. Ive heard the paper companies are outsourcing the leasing duties, and the companies now in charge of leasing are bumping up the pricing so not to have their services be a burden on the timber companies that they are working for. What I see happening now is clubs are having to take on new members to cover the ever increasing cost. Too many hunters per acre is bad for hunting, and dangerous for hunters. Leasing is not what it used to be. Timber companines were happy for a little extra income and to have people watch over their interests at one time, now its a big dollar business. But our choice is to either pay the increase, or let the next guy in line have a crack at it. It will never happen, but what we need is a coop of hunting clubs that lease land. United our concerns may be heard, the way it is now, our voices mean nothing.

A comment titled: 7mm-08 in response to a report titled: 7mm-08

Yeah, I tend to think my problem is not with the bullet or the caliber in this situation, but with a combination of the shot placement, bullet and caliber. Downshiftandfloorit hit the nail on the head when he mentioned the bullet fragmentation problem he has had with this bullet/caliber combination. I never found the bullet when I cleaned my deer, but both lungs, heart, liver, and diaphram were damaged by the shot. I believe the bullet fragmented when it penetrated the shoulder causing severe internal damage, but no bloodtrail. I have taken nearly the same shoulder shot on other deer with my .270 with much better results. I should probably change ammo and go at it again, but have decided to just go back to the what I know to be a proven combo and shoot a .270. I love the rifle, so I ordered the same Remington 700 Mountain LSS in .270 and will sell the 7mm-08. My new rifle will be in Wednesday, and I plan to hunt with it Saturday evening after sighting it in after the morning hunt. Thanks for all the good info and advice!

January 04, 2011 at 2:21pm
A comment titled: shot placement in response to a report titled: 7mm-08

I understand a quartering shoulder shot is not the optimum shot. But from years of deerhunting with a .270, I know from experience it has always been been deadly, and a blood trail has never been a problem. I'm not sure if an ammo change is needed, or if this is just not the caliber for my type of hunting. I hunt the woods mainly, and don't have the opportunity to wait for a broadside shot like you often have on a foodplot.
If a shoulder shot presents itself its always been lights out with my .270, and at least some kind of blood trail. I've never had a bullet enter a deers chest cavity and not found the deer until now. Ammo change or a very nice rifle for sale shortly!

A comment titled: divided we fall in response to a report titled: CCA

As sportsman we should never turn against each other. If you support a ban on bowfishing, your sport may be next. If this bowfishing for redfish ban goes through, the next attack may have to do with the commercial guide services. Do you think the sportsman who liked bowfishing for reds will be sympathetic toward the guides at that point? I think not. Once we start letting outside sources cause inner fighting amoungt your fellow sportsman, where does it stop? If you disagree with bowfishing for reds, thats fine.
But ask yourself a few questions. Does it really effect you? Is it hurting the redfish population? Is there any scientific reason for this change?
All SPORTSMAN should ban together against the CCA! We need to send a loud message that we are not going to support anymore regulations unless they are supported by common sense.
There is no scientific evidence to support new regulations for red fish, period. End of story.

Made to go;

I understand what you are saying, and I am sympathetic to your situation. I am a business owner myself. But the fact is, if I'm selling a product brand people don't want, I'd either change to a brand the people do want, or turn my anger toward the supplier thats responsible for forcing me to sell an unpopular product. Apparently selling non-ethanol fuel is an option because so many stations are selling ethonal free gas. Turning your anger toward the people who don't want your product is not the answer.

A comment titled: mud motors in response to a report titled: GO DEVIL OR SURFACE DRIVE

I own a 35hp Gatorail w/reverse, and I love it! But what you choose deffinetly depends on what your going to use it for, and where your going to use it. I have run Godevil longtails of several different horse powers for years, and they are no doubt the king of mudmotors, stumps, rock, mud, bring it on, but they are slow! My GTR runs just under 30mph and jumps on plane like an outboard, but having used it in low water conditions with stumps I'd much rather a longtail for those conditions. If you will be running low water, but fairly clean of stumps go with the surface drive. If you'll be in stumps and water so low your in just about mud, stick with the longtail. Now as far as brand, I studied them well, and test drove them also. I would suggest your spend the extra bucks and get the Gatortail. It is the best out there, and Kyle and Hoyte provide top notch service, they are second to none in customer service! The Pro-drive does have a pretty good following, but you just have to visit mudmotor.com and read the posts to see that they have more problems than the Gatortails. As fas as the full power reverse on the Pro-drive, the reverse on my Gtr has never failed to be enough power to get me off anything I needed ot back off of. As far as the Mudbuddy, I have heard too many horror stories for me to even consider one. If a longtail is in your future, you can't beat Go-devil for performance and dependability. I'm in Metairie if you'd like to test drive my GTR, just drop me an email, Good Luck!

I'm a bow hunter down deep.....do we really need more time to hunt deer with a gun? Don't get me wrong, I gun hunt also, but more gun time? Really?
