WL&F should seriously consider shutting down the upcoming deer season in the areas affected by the GREAT FLOOD OF 2016. I have hunted all my life but I think we should sit this one out. Fawns are dropping as we speak and i'm not a biologist but I would think they need dry land for survival. Blue tongue and other diseases I would assume will wipe out a large number of the population also due to overcrowding. I'm sure this probably will go on deaf ears due to economic impact and certain individuals desire to kill, but does anyone else even remotely agree with me?
Anybody else think Area 6 and 9 deer season dates need to change?
Sam Hamilton, the former director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, called
invasive species 'probably the single greatest threat in our country to our native wildlife.' This is what happened to the game especially wintering ducks in southern Iberville Parish. Read the full report ON INVASIVE SPECIES from The Louisiana Sportsman homepage.
Mr. Larry Reynolds are anyone who has hunted south farms this year how was the first few weeks and how do the ponds look? I got picked for the lottery hunt on the second split and was just wondering. Any info is greatly appreciated.
Anybody with any reports from south farms? How do the ponds look and did anybody hunt it for the opener?
Saw two woodcocks today on different ends of the lease I can't remember seeing them this early in the year since I was a kid. Looks like it will be a brutal winter which I have no problem with. Started noticing Robin's about a week ago which seems early also.
The real hunting season begins in about 1 hr.
Anybody have any maps of the proposed areas of still hunting only for Iberville parish I couldn't find anything on LWF's website. Thanks
Hello fellow sportsman I am in need of a new shotgun for ducks I have narrowed it down to Benelli or Browning and want be swayed from the two. I know the Benelli SBE2 is proven but has anyone hunted with the new A5 because I have my dads 1953 version and used it as a kid to hunt with no problems and if the SBE is not hands down way better I would like to give the new A5 a chance. All opinions will be appreciated but please don't comment on any other brands as it will be one of the two I have listed that will be purchased. Thanks
Mr. Larry Reynolds with the last few cold fronts how are the South Farm ponds looking. I got picked for the opener lottery hunt and was just wondering have the numbers picked up since the last time you commented. Hope to see you Saturday.
Does anybody know if nutria eat Salvania?
Any word from the south farms of Sherburne how are the ducks looking and have pit blinds been installed any information is greatly appreciated.
Fellow hunter's I have been selected for the lottery hunt in Sherbune at the beginning of Dec. and (my buddy) on new years eve I was wondering do we need large decoy spreads mojo's and waders? Also this may be a crazy question ,but do you think the flood helped the hunting out by flushing the ponds of bad vegetation etc..? Thanks for any responses they are greatly appreciated.
Made this bad cast in March and interesting things happend.
Question for the waterfowl hunters I am interested in a new auto 12 gauge for the upcoming season chambered in 3 inch with a 28 inch barrel. I am thinking and leaning heavily to the Franchi I 12 ,but will consider the Browning Silver as well as the Berreta have any of you had any dealings with the Franchi all comments will be appreciated. P.S. I hunt timber mainly and have zero use for 3 1/2 inch chamber so no Binelli for me Thanks guys
Me Michael and Larry had the pleasure to stay and hunt at the Bin There Hunting Lodge on Monday and Tuesday in Welsh. We didnt fill our limits on geese or ducks, but we had a great time and the guides Preston, Mr. Mike and Dave where top notch as well as the camp. I am looking forward to going back and would recommend this guide service to other hunters.
Anybody do any good in Welsh this weekend?
Hey guys I was wondering if any of you have any experience with slug guns? I will be getting a H&R 20 gauge from Santa Clause. I think this will be a good swamp gun where tracking may not be necessary. Any input would be appreciated.
Man them swamp people back to unsafe acts again shooting gators in the boat that bullet could ricochet and hit a near by perch jerker.
Anybody else think that feeding deer ( because it makes deer nocturnal ) and an uncontrolable hog problem will lead to the resurgence of dog hunting? I think the day is near when seeing deer in the daylight is over.
