What is this world coming to? Seriously how low down of a person does it take to steal someone's trailer hitch? It's not like they cost $1000. Granted mine was a nice adjustable two ball hitch for $200. If you are the culprit, beware. Karma is a killer. What happened to sportsmen being sportsmen??
Just heard through the grapevine that Capt Josh Howard and the Looney Tuna were in an accident today. Hit a well outside southwest pass and sunk in minutes. Not confirmed yet but I hope everyone is ok.
Anybody been hunting around Bayou Black/Orange Grove lately? Would like to hear how everyone else is doing since the split. Seems to have slowed down for us. Still VERY FEW big ducks...
Bayou Black roundup of 12 ringys to close out an excellent first split. Its 95% ringys but ill take them over nothing. Fast action and easy limits. Nothing better! They are really starting to raft up and make our place home. Had great company and hope to continue after the split. Lets hear about all you other Bayou Black guys!
Got two limits this morning. All ringnecks. Not a whole lot flying around. It was fast and furios early but come 6:30 they stopped. Didnt see very many other ducks or species. WE NEED A REAL FRONT!!
Easy limit this morning in Orange Grove. Done by 6:15. 3 woodys, 1 ringy, 2 teal. Saw a few grays and mallards. Couldnt quite get them in. Talked to couple other people who came out with 6 mallards. Ducks are everwhere. Heard a lot of shooting around the area. Try to get back at it in the morning...good luck guys
Well with duck season opening in a few days, I have to ask the inevitable question. What kind of calls are you guys using these days? I hunt the open water marsh, so a good loud call is a MUST on those high wind days! What do you guys think is the best call for this? Is a $100+ call REALLY worth the money? Can a cheap call actually work those late season south louisiana skiddish ducks?
Anybody hunt teal around Bayou Black this weekend? I havent heard anything about it.
My dad is looking into getting a vacuum sealer for fish and shrimp. We have one for our deer meat and such. Now we are looking into getting a vacuum that seals a bag full of liquid, so we can store shrimp and other things that require water. Curious to see what you guys are using or have heard about. Brands? Model? Thanks for any help!
I am having problems with bullet expansion. I have 7mmWSM and I'm currently shooting winchester 150gr. power points because they are the only thing i have found to get a DESCENT group. I have also tried the fusion bullets but could not get them to group AT ALL. I am still not satisfied with the Winchesters as the two deer I have shot with it both ran off. Perfect shot placement both times at about 100-150yds. When I recover the deer the exit hole and entry hole are practically the same thing, which means to me that the bullet did not expand properly. Any possible solutions? Any of you guys that shoot a 7mmWSM have bullet trouble? What is the best bullet that I can use (I'm thinking maybe a heavier bullet will help to control the group and slow it down to expand. These are the only two bullets I have found at stores (limited shopping) ANY help would be greatly appreciated as I am tired of tracking deer already.
I was looking at the shallow water spider and they seem very interesting. I was wondering if any of you guys or gals out there have any real life experience with them. They seem to do pretty good in the ad video on their website.
Finally some good news. Watching the race and Fox8 just interrupted saying that as the meeting broke at BP headquarters in Houston, it was released that there is oil flowing through the collector pipe into the tanker. They do not know how much oil is actually flowing through the pipe but there is reports of it actually working.
Hopefully this will alloww us to contain a majority of the surface oil while drilling the new relief well. This is awesome news. Finally something positive. Let's hope its TRUE!
Ok guys, I need a little help. I got my hands on a nice little 20lb loggerhead turtle. I have it all cleaned now I just need a good recipe! I have eaten turtle before but was never around for the cooking process. Just curious if you guys have any good recipes.
Anybody been catching any sacs in bayou black/orange grove area?? Probably still a little cold but now that duck seasons over im getting that itch!
Made my first trip to my property in orange grove in about two weeks and it definatly paid off! Got my first limit of the season. Ended with four ringnecks and a pair of teal. First thing this morning I lost a big male pintail. That would have been my first ever pintail! I could have cried.. Lots of big ducks. Had greys commited but flared at last second. Then for the first time in my life I saw a flock of about twenty pintail commit to my spread but never got quite loww enough. These are the first pintail I see on my property in probably four years. And to have them all commit, I was in SHOCK. Saw a couple flocks of geese overhead but never once again never got quite low enough. Goin get em again in the morning. Hopefully those pins come back and those geese get lower!
Any reports from orange grove lately?? havent been in a while...
WHO DAT BABY! SURE AINT ARIZONA!
Just wondering how the ducks have been in orange grove, bayou black area. Ive had bronchitis since Christmas day. Just hoping it has gotten better since the last timei was out there.
Any info would be a great help! Thanks
Made another orange grove hunt this morning. Still sucks badly. Between two of us we only ended with four. Many of you say the ducks are down but i still say no they are not. Not even close. When you takea look up HIGH in the sky theres still NOTHING but clouds. No ducks coming in. BYFAR my worst season ever. Even if we do get tons of birds later in the season it still will not make up for this part.
Made the first hunt of the second split in orange grove after spending the weekend in Mississippi killing some deer. Took my dad in the marsh for his first hunt this year. We only ended with 6 ringnecks. Lost three cripples. Probably should have had our limit. Still not really different than first split. Couple new birds but nothing drasticallly different. Hope it gets better. Still no big ducks in nose bleed section migrating in.
