“Yes, We Have No bananas Today” is the nonsensical title of a novelty song composed by Frank Silver and Irving Cohn for Broadway in 1923. Like the song, the little fish that Louisiana coastal anglers call “banana fish” is self-contradictory.

October and November were a couple of rough months for Glenn Cormier: his mother passed away suddenly, and only a few weeks later, one of his friends died unexpectedly.
So the 59-year-old nurse anesthetist at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge headed to his deer camp south of St. Francisville for some much needed rest and relaxation.
In Cormier’s 60-acre ‘honey hole’ on the lease, he had been watching a piebald deer grow up for the better part of two seasons, and had frequently seen him from his stands and on trail cam pictures.

When you get on your stand before daylight without eating any breakfast, there’s a good chance you could get hungry in an hour or so, especially if you’re a 7-year-old boy.
That’s the situation Ryon Walker, 38, found himself tending to on Saturday, Nov. 30 while hunting with his son, Caleb, on a 100-acre pine-forest plot in Claiborne Parish.

Many people say the quiet solitude of a deer stand is therapy to escape the non-stop daily grind.
For Corinne Portier of Chauvin, it’s all that and more.
Portier, 49, started hunting seriously after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. It returned in late 2011, and after a double mastectomy, chemo, radiation and a year off from hunting, she took down her biggest deer to date with a nice 8-point last month in Terrebonne Parish on the opening day of muzzleloader season.

The opening could be seen through the trees as I eased toward the food plot. When the path made a final turn, I could see the green patch ahead. I slowed down and worked my way around a huge mud hole, easing toward the end of the trail just in case deer had already made it to the food plot.
