Went out to the lease this past weekend to work on food plots and stands and wound up helping one of my members set a trap to try and fix an ongoing hog problem. We baited it up Saturday evening and came back in Sunday morning and caught 5. 200lb. black and white boar with 4 sows. 22long behind the ear and 5 less to worry about. Brining home the bacon !!!
I brought my daughter on our annual Thanksgiving 3 day hunt at our lease and she made an AWESOME 220yd shot on this 130lb doe with her 7mm-08 at 7:14AM Sunday morning. The weather was cold and everything had a heavy frost and as soon as the sun came up enough to melt the frost the deer came out on the edge of a new clear cut on our property to warm up and she overcame the cold temps and the adrenalin rush and put the smack down on her. Very proud of her on such a difficult shot for a 15 year old. The deer went 40yds after the shot and was done. Congrats again Hailey!!!!!
Sitting the stand waiting for an 8 point I have on camera and this guy decided to show up instead so I let the Grim Reaper do it's job. Meat for the freezer. 145lb. Boar.
Took advantage of the cold weather this past weekend and my right as a disabled veteran and got on this 8' beard with 1 1/4' spurs. I had 3 gobbling at day break and I had them talking to after 8:00 AM then they shut up. Finally a bit after 9:00 Am a passing by crow got him to gobble and it was back on. I was able to get within about 80 yards of him and set up a few decoys and between using the slate to purr and my mouth call kept him interested enough to come in and investigate. Big mistake on his part. 1 down and 1 to go.
Went to my lease this weekend and caught this guy Sunday evening hanging in my food plot with 3 does. He isn't even in rut yet but was hanging with his girls.
We went on our yearly weekly trip to our favorite public land location and ended up with an outstanding week. 5 guys, 5 days, 3-8 points and a 6 point. Can't wait til next years trip now.
Brought my baby girl to the lease this weekend for the youth hunt and she finally got her first kill. What a rush. Beat any deer I ever killed. Congratulations Hailey.
Went on a trip to North Carolina last weekend and decided to put the rage aside and try the schwackers out and the first morning busted this 4-pt. sneaking around. Quartering away shot was a little more of an angle that he looked like but did the job none the less.
Finally we now have a new pro bow shop on the westbank of new orleans. The name is extreme archery and it is located of Spencer st. behind Don Bohn Ford of lapalco. In door range and tournaments on Wednesday nights. They carry everything you need and are currently selling Hoyt, Bear and Missions (by mathews) and should hopefully be carrying Mathews soon.
Rage does it again.
a few pictures from this past weekend
checked cameras this weekend and cannot wait to see these guys during the day
I had my first bow kill with my new bow. I purchased the bowtech 82nd airborn which is shooting 340 f.p.s. and tipped the arrows with RAGE 2 blade MECHANICAL broadheads and look at the damage they did on this 150lb. 7- point. This is the entry hole not the exit. AWESOME !!!!!!
Went out Saturday to find 3-4 ft. seas but the TUNA were on allday. Best trip I have been on in years and will go again next year.Hats off to our guide for putting us on the yellowfin. 15 yellow , 2 blacks and 1 dolphin.
Someone put a post on this site a week or so ago about a bigfoot found in Georgia and they were awaiting test results and DNA results. Well it is an official HOAX. DNA shows opossum and human DNA and a bigfoot specialist paid the men for their find and discovered when they received the body that it was a rubber body and now they cannot find the two men anywhere to prosecute them and get their money back. The things people beleive and pay in this country. FUNNY!!!
Thinking of buying a new bow and leaning towards a bowtec, for all you bowtec hunters out there what is the difference between the bowtec diamond and the bowtec other than a few hundred dollars.

THanks. Call 504-717-1164 or Email.
Anybody try that whitetail bran from wally world. I tried it this weekend because I could not find rice bran and over night saturday they wiped it off the ground. I may by more but the feed store has rice bran in now and it is 6.99 for a 50lb sack to wally worlds 5.97 for maybe 2-4 lbs. but it may be worth it because it works on my lease.
Got 2 more down. My buddy john finished his limit with a 22lb.er and my uncle got his first for the year the a 24 and 3/4 lb.er. Another great weekend on the lease.
