At the end of day six, when the good Lord passed a final glance over all of his creation, a wink and a smile must have went out to the diminutive woodcock.

O.K., answer me this: How many of those brochures in hotel lobbies in the French Quarter beckon you to embark on a charming tour of a “5-year-old pure-pine plantation?” Or a picturesque tour of a “10-year clear-cut timber tract?” Or a breathtaking tour of scenic landscape comprising “select-cut timber featuring scenic logging machinery ruts, gorgeous burnt stumps and piles of cut-downs”? Or maybe: “Come with us and gaze bleary-eyed for four hours down a power-line surrounded by monotonous even-growth pines!”

The Dulac/Cocodrie area presents a wide range of options for warm-weather speck chasers. From the Lake Barre oil and gas fields to the east to the feast-or-famine run to Raccoon Island and the small cluster of rigs to the west, anglers and area guides have lots to choose from in the sweltering summer months.

Water came early to Tensas Parish this year. Sloughs and drainage ditches that normally wouldn’t fill up until late December were already reaching their breaking points back in October. And deer that normally wouldn’t set hoof on a ridge that early had no choice but to leave the bottoms and head for the hills.

On Halloween night in 1959, an event took place in LSU’s Tiger Stadium that gets more exciting each time you watch the grainy black-and-white video. On that night, Billy Cannon ran a punt back 89 yards to beat Ole Miss, winning Cannon the Heisman Trophy that year.
A couple of hours before Cannon, now 72, was honored at Tiger Stadium on the 50th anniversary of that incredible feat, another Heisman moment was playing out in the woods of Rapides Parish.

Every year I am amazed at how a deer seems to know what type of nutrition he needs at certain times of the year. It seems like flipping the light switch off: The deer just stopped eating rice bran and other high-protein feeds the first weekend of November from the Felicianas and north into Mississippi (Interestingly, it seems like the deer near the flooded river and south around Mount Pleasant and Baton Rouge are still eating the bran/protein).

I sit here on Thanksgiving morning giving thanks to my Lord Jesus Christ for all he has blessed me with: my precious family, friends, job and country. We are all so blessed, but at times we may take some of these blessings for granted. We predict what we are going to do tomorrow, next month, in five years – but none of this is guaranteed. It is all in God’s hands and plans.

|”Saving a spot”

The Louisiana hunting pamphlet clearly states that even though it is now legal to leave your stand in the woods in a non-hunting position, this cannot be used to “save” a hunting spot. The stand must be in a non-hunting position, with your name, telephone number and hunting license number marked somewhere on the stand. That seems simple enough, right? Well ….
