Son shot his first deer. Dont know who was more excited. Missed the big doe and 10 min later this knot head came out and i gave him the go ahead. Right after he shot he said daddy it dropped and I did not close my eyes this time. I almost fell out laughing. Best thing is we got it on video. 75pd knot head. Life cant get any better.

Just FYI for anyone trapping hogs in Mississippi, make sure your trap has top cut out bc guy at podnuhs camp just got a ticket for having a trap with a closed top. Looked up regs and its in there. Just wanted to let anyone know that didnt know this like us.

Anyone deer hunt in bayou black marsh? I usually make a few hunts a year with someone but havent made it yet and was plan on going next weekend. He has not had good luck this year because the marsh is tore up and alot of our ditches closed up from the hurricane and the coyotes are extremely bad. Has anyone else had this problem? Still going to make a hunt but just curious how others are doing with the deer.

A few cats from Gibson, LA.

March 19, 2008 at 9:36pm

After a good Thanksgiving day dinner we decided to make a late hunt. She has been deer hunting with me for a few years now and has yet to connect with on until now. She shot this deer at 125 yards in the neck (right were she was told to shoot) at 5:15pm with a H&R 243,. When she shot the deer dropped with her nose in the rice bran. This deer made her and my season, but the only problem is she wants to go hunting everyday now. I suppose that is a good problem though for a 12 year old. Doe went 142 pounds.

What are the rules about house boats moored on state lands. I always see them during hunting season. I asked one of the guys that had one and he said you can keep it on state land as long as you move it every month. Is this true?

ATT TUNA FISHERMAN: need help with hooks for live bait. been using 5/0 demon hooks but haven't had to much luck, charter captains have told us to use smaller hooks. i can't find any smaller hooks that have the diameter of the 5/0. any help would be appreciated, trying to get ready for the faux pas tournement.

I was thing of getting a chum churn to use at the lump this year and was wondering if anyone has tried this for tuna? I have seen one used for mangrove but thats about it. would it bring the tuna up or would it just bring the kings and sharks?

December 29, 2005 at 4:02pm

What is a good reel for bottom/rig fishing, I am not looking to spend a ton of money as I will only use it 7-8x a year. I will be fishing the lump with a friend this year and I like to have a bait on the bottom. I would like to hear from some of the charter captains on what they use, any help is appreciated.

A comment titled: Sides in response to a report titled: Hog Trapping FYI

The game warden did not say anything about height of sides which makes no sense. He went and paid the ticket yesterday and got a bunch of info from them, I will ask if they told him anything about it. I know he told me you cant trap them during hunting season without a permit.

My grandmother taught me how a long time ago, make a fire outside make it big and get it real hot, thin layer of grease and put it in the fire and leave it till fire goes out. let it cool for a day then clean it with water. then cook alot with it, cooking is the only way to season a pot good.

You won't get in there unless you have a bad mud boat. I passed by the launch on 74 and the canal is only about 5 foot wide, prob 4-6" deep due to the locks bieng open. the lake is completely dry.

We hunted there in 85 and used to kill ducks in the morning catch sacalait mid day and deer in the evening, that was the good ole days. The place has gone down hill, its such a waste of great swamp, just riding use to be fun but not any more. can't get too many places b/c of the grass and low water, if you have a mud motor i could take you to some places that still hold fish, no doubt they are still there.
