There's a report on the home page about crabbing violations. Can any of the genius' in law enforcement explain how some were arrested and some cited? How can individuals charged with the same crimes get treated differently? Why not just arrest all of them or none of them? Come on law enforcement community, tell me your excuses for treating the same situation differently.

Hello all, I collect and grow fig trees and heard about some fig trees planted long ago by immigrants along Bayou Cook in the marsh. As a collector, these trees hold incredible promise and I would be forever grateful to hear ANY information about these trees. My goal is to PRESERVE these varieties. Has anyone harvested cuttings from these trees and would be willing to trade, I have dozens of varieties to trade. Preservation of varieties like these is very important to me.

I love that this article supports the strenuous efforts of our wildlife agents. They absolutely provide us with incredible opportunities to hunt and fish safely in the best state to do such in the entire United States. This article does, though, overgeneralize a few factors taking away from its accuracy. Yes, game wardens have been known to tow in a boat or even help drag a deer out of the woods as I have witnessed both of these situations. But to say that they are working even a slight majority of their hours in these superman-esque roles is an over generalization. The same, for example, as assuming that even a small amount of the contacts a wildlife agent encounters in the field would try to murder them. The cases of a wildlife agent being intentionally murdered are incredibly rare in the aggregate. What could be credible presumptions by wildlife agents may turn into assumptions, which are by definition not based on facts. Assumptions and presumptions are not the same and dont we all know what assumptions lead to? Sure they encounter more scumbags in their line of work but maybe treating someone, who has no other intention but to cooperate and follow the warden's orders, like a murderer is a bad look. Also, any employed person knows that attitude counts for something. Their job may be tough but lots of guys could be killed at work and it doesnt mean that he cant be a pleasant person. I have only had pleasant encounters with wardens but to say that happens to everyone else every time is absolutely false. They do a fantastic job as far as Im concerned but lets not over generalize their limited goodwill or discount the situations in which they make mistakes or dont handle a situation as best as possible, at the detriment of some unsuspecting person.

You moved because of a tv show....?!!! Are you 13 years old?!!! That is absolutely wild that you would move halfway across the country for what we do in our spare time. You must have had absolutely nothing going for you there... Across the country for a tv show...of a hobby... wow why would you admit to that with people around? The Midwest must be a sh1thole.

I hear that mossback. It's crazy how many people in Louisiana got into hunting and fishing after the duck commander guys and the alligator show on the tv. What's funnier is they think people who know better can't spot them like turd in a punch bowl as soon as they put on their new camo or start talking about their new hobby. I've seen and heard some really embarrassing stuff in the past few years like I've never experienced before. Nothing wrong with trying a new spot, or new hobby for that matter, but new spots are only new to the new guy. When you see someone telling random people about a good spot, 'here's your sign!'

I collect fig trees and would love to know more about the Bayou Cook fig trees. If anyone has gotten cuttings of these trees or could tell me ANYTHING about these trees I would be forever greatful. I have dozens of varieties to trade cuttings or could reward for this info. These trees are very important to me. Thanks guys!

Mudbugg, 'Almost understand killing a deer out of season if poor and hungry'. This year is 2016 not 1600. We have social programs to provide food and funds for these individuals. The reasons for game laws are very wide ranging, much more encompassing than a worthless excuse of being 'hungry' and 'poor'. If they are hungry and poor GET OUT OF THE WOODS! They want to poach deer, pork can be purchased for like $1.50/pound. Want to poach fish, certain fish are astoundingly cheap with the PLETHORA of fish markets in the state of Louisiana. Country bumpkins. Deer season is almost 5 months long, If they can't kill their 6 deer in 5 months they are too bad at hunting to survive off wild game anyway so just give up that idea and get a 9-5.

Hunt r spewing nonsense again, no way?! All of his comments are conjecture. Just let him believe the things he thinks are worth the ridiculous amount of time it undoubtedly takes for him to surmise his nonsense.

Whats the problem? Maybe be concerned if your doe dont have any offspring at all. Are you assuming that every doe every year will/should have twins or even triplets and for every single one survive til October? Probly just lack of nutrition or predation, not a very difficult concept, or a problem for that matter.

Tony, why are you the only individual who has anything decent to say about the man? Maybe because he pays you $20/month. Thats pretty cheap politics. Class act for sure.

Send me your email, I'll let you join our club. We pay to lease the right to hunt, ride atvs on certain areas, and all of the private land perks that you speak of. Everyone else has to pay but apparently you have a $15 license and a nice personality so just come and take all you want.

Thanks Bullcoon, glad to know you're looking out for my best interest by killing every pig you see. Your service is invaluable to the delicate future of our environment.

Why are there no comments from farmers claiming that hogs are ruining their way of life? All these comments are from 'hunters' who just want to shoot pigs simply because they are there. Adults have self control to not have that itch to kill anything that moves. Work on self control. We have trapped for over 20 years with continued success and we have absolute control how may pigs roam our farm. Adults handle business with a level head, come on guys.

Build traps and your problems will be solved. To only consider night hunting with guns as a reasonable response to an increase in minor damage from a controllable source is derelict at best. Just build a trap. You can not kill more than a proper trap can catch at one single time. Thats a guarantee.

Huntr, landowners do not need to help any hog hunters. Hunters trade cash for the opportunity to hunt private land. Its a very simple process to understand. You are an uneducated person. After your comments, what land owner would want 'your kind' anywhere near their property? Nobody owes you anything. Get your english correct as well, buddy. You are an embarrasment. Wealth does not accumulate from shooting pigs, guy. Poor sap.
