I have been monitoring this forum waiting for the explosion but it has not happened yet. I guess nothing will be said or done on the subject until maybe September right before hunting season when the Louisiana hog hunters pull their head out of the sand or wherever they have their head and discover all that is being instatuted to their favorite game animal. The federal government has developed a program to eradicate the hog and the state of La. received $300,000. The West Jefferson Levee district has decided they would turn down an offer of free help from the local sheriffs swat teams to go on night patrols and kill the hogs that are rooting up the levees and hire private contractors to do the job. {ie helocopters}. Do you see where this is going? This is just a small portion of the current events. If u plan on being a hog hunter in the future you better stand up and make your voice heard.

You can use just about any weapon above a 22 rimfire. No rim fires and no spears.

you have all the makings for some good deer sausage. Just add celery and onions.

Great deer for the child but you should be teaching her to never have a rifle barrel pointed at anyone you don't wish to harm. Your rifle should be pointed in any other direction.

The Mexican Whistlers are an invasive specie. They blew in from Central America with Katrina. As such all regulations should be dropped regarding this bird. As for not migrating; they don't want to go back across the border either.

A comment titled: Spillway Rules in response to a report titled: why cant i run dogs in the spillway

You need to carry yourself to the office over there to have them explain why. The rules in the new La. Hunt Regs. on page 110/111 clearly state that dog hunters can use the spillway except on the days of gun hunt for deer. During the week the director is usally there and can answer any questions u may have. You may have run into a ranger that was giving u his opinion and not the rules.

A comment titled: The Gate in response to a report titled: why cant i run dogs in the spillway

The gate is only to stop the trucks. You can get an atv permit from the office that will allow u access to all that area north of airline or u can walk in perfectly legal as long as u obey the rules while u are in there. As for dogs the only restrictions are during the gun hunts for deer u are not allowed to run them.

The Gate is great. It keeps all the jackwagons with their jacked up 4-wheel drive trucks from tearing up the road system and ruining the hunt for the real hunters. They had been doing it for years. U can go aroung it or go under the airline farther down from the atv track in a few places. Good Luck

A comment titled: isu's problem in response to a report titled: All out war on the hog

A centerfire rifle is not the answer for you. Shooting a 20 to 90 lb. pig with centerfire will just leave u with ears and tail. You need to take time off from sitting on your porch and playing your banjo and go to the firing range and learn how to shoot your 22 mag. There is not a hog in the woods that can withstand a properly placed shot from a 22 mag. A larger gun will not help. This goes for all u jackwagons out there that claim the gun is too small. I grew up and learned to hunt with an old indian from South Dakota that only hunted with an old 22 mag and he killed 1200 lb. elk and caribou consistantly with 1 shot. He had to because he had to feed his family with that gun.

A comment titled: Info on WJ Levee District in response to a report titled: All out war on the hog

They reported last week that they were going to hire an independant contractor to trap the hogs on the levee system and claim it is only going to cost them the price of the feed for the traps. Seems awful fishy to me.
