Does anyone have any report on Maurepas Swamp WMA? I did not make out yet. When will we get word on any changes to deer seasons? I live in Thibodaux area and water does not want to drop. It is not as high as when storm passed but still well above normal. Did water drop on maurepas side of the river yet?Any info is great.

I am posting this for my buddy Kenneth Domangue, Jr. He killed this 9 point on privite land in St Heleana parish on January 16.The deer weighed 200 pounds and had a 15 1/2 inch spread the beam length is 22 inches.He was walking to 5 does when he meet a 270 bullet the first time just an inch back and up behind the heart, He ran 100 yards during that time my buddy jumped off the ground were he sat and yelled at him, the deer slowed down and he shot him the second time and the buck droped in a creek bottom dead. Ken have Been Hunting this property every week since last year and got only two pictures of him on January 13,2010. Congrats on the nice buck. He will look great on your wall!!!

my buddy shot this bobcat at red river wma saturday. this bobcat has been snooping around our 4 wheeler everytime we go hunting. he kept on doing #2 on the seat. i put up my game cam to see what it was and it was him. the next time we went hunting my buddy stayed by the 4 wheeler and sure enough he came out and climbed on the 4 wheeler. it was the last >>>> he took. we been wonder all year why we can not kill any deer? this was a good size bobcat! watch out they are on the prowl!!!i put some before and after pics!!!!

A comment titled: agree in response to a report titled: What you think!

i am all for the state making some type of restriction. i do not know what the best solution would be but i would say doe day eveyday is bad. very bad. we need to go back to a couple doe days and 4 point or better. across the state. too many guys knocking down small deer including myself because its legal.

A comment titled: stop killing does in response to a report titled: Fellow Hunters

i am all for lowering the number but i have no problem with someone killing bucks. its the doe days in LA that are the problem. we can not continue killing does every day of season.

A comment titled: not alone!! in response to a report titled: Maurepas Swamp WMA

you are not alone. same thing happen to my buddy. he was pumped to hunt. could not wait to go because he usually kills. well about 6:45am 2 or 3 hunters come under his stand and start making a drive going away from him. he was pissed. hunt over. not to mention all the rain friday. the sad thing is when my buddy left. he was the first truck there and they parked on each side of him. i understand go far but i know were he was and the deer are usually there. that is the one thing about public land i have learned to expect. i expect to see people everytime i go. if i do not so much the better. i did not see anyone this morning and only one person far away friday. not bad. there were alot of hunters in the bayou on my way out but most were spread out. good luck hunting!!!

A comment titled: FORD in response to a report titled: GMC/CHEVY vs. ford

I vote FORD. I have a super cab F-150 right now and love it. I have owned a ranger and a single cab ford and loved both of those trucks. i had a chevy s-10. it was terrible. it ruined my chevy opinion. the only thing i can say about gmc/chevy that is really better is the ride and gas milege. they are alot smoother and better on gas. i will take my stiff riding fx4 ford and gas guzzler any day over chevy. i got some chain in my truck right now if someone wants to hook up!!!!
