No mention of levees preventing replenishment from the Mississippi River, no mention of erosion. Typical fake news. We're trying to draw attention to this problem while CNN places the blame elsewhere. This misinformation obviously hurts our cause.

'Rising seas have swallowed more than 1,800 miles of coastline...'

I figured out how to enable video on my trail camera and got this vid from last week.

These guys are all nocturnal. Can't wait for the rut.

Big surprise when I checked my game cams for the first time this year. A nice black bear and a few decent young bucks. Located a few miles north of Simmesport.

Sunday afternoon my 10 year old son and I were in the stand, hadn't seen anything all day. Just at last light we heard a deer coming near the stand. We were at the intersection of two wide trails in the middle of 3-4 year old cutover, can't see anything if it isn't on one of the trails. I had 4 scent bombs with Tink's #1 around the stand.

The deer got close and trotted the last few yards, it had to be within 15-20 yds but we couldn't have seen it even if it was daylight. We could hear the deer stop and huff, it trotted a little more, huffed again and then walked off slowly in the direction it came from. The huffing was a hard blowing of air.

I'm thinkin it was responding to the scent, what do you guys make of it?

I'll be hunting in the Grangeville area (southwest corner of St Helena parish) this season. How has the deer harvest been in this area recently and what can I expect? I've seen pictures of some really nice deer in St Helena parish lately.

Where do I go for sac-a-lait Friday morning? I like to know of a hot spot within 2 hours of Denham Springs, La.

Thanks for any help

The Miami article seems to ignore issues like ground level sinking and erosion. We are generally becoming increasingly aware of progressives pushing man-made climate change as economic opposition to strong American industry. And skepticism about man-made causes vs denying actual climate change are totally different things. Skepticism is healthy.

Don't know really, I'm not very knowledgeable on the scoring process. I'm told the rut in our area starts the week prior to Christmas, so I'm ready. We're hearing some areas around us have already started. Thanks.

Just realized, that after this male bear showed up in my pics, I'm not seeing any hogs. Everybody else on the lease is tho. I guess he's residing close by my stand.

True. I had the feeder high, and the adult male bear couldn't get to it (see pic). But this past Sunday I lowered/filled, but forgot to raise it higher. I'm sure I'll find it destroyed when I get back :/

Hang your feeders high. This naughty boy is greedy. And a pic of me and my son at the same location for size comparison.

I'm probably wrong but those pink framing studs aren't suitable for outdoor use. Might get a season or two out of the them. But then if it's cheap and easy enough then why not...

Thanks, those were the best out of about 600 pics. That bear appeared the same day I set the camera and he hauled off my acorn rage block that first day. I poured deer cain over two acorn rage blocks in front of two separate cameras; obviously got some positive results.

I was thinking about doing some onshore fishing around Manchac, have you heard anything elsewhere?

It's sad that you've spoiled a great kill by insulting every other Wildlife & Fisheries Enforcement officer in the State. An officer helping someone is not one of the "very rarest things" we see.
