This is a video summary of some of my hunting season as seen from my deer stand. There?s a lot of interesting deer behaviors that can be seen in this video and it illustrates the beauty and fun of observing nature from a deer stand. I hope you enjoy it.

I am picking up a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox next week that DOES NOT have any factory installed roof runners, which is a bummer. I researched some “naked” roof rack options and found some on etrailer.com (Rhino-Rack) but lawd they are expensive (~$500). Does anyone have some more budget…

Only 5 weeks away and getting ready for what I hope to be a very good turkey season. The winter storm last week destroyed a lot of my woods. The ice storm dropped trees down all over the place and we are spending time just clearing roads and making sure everything is ok. I hope the wildlife came…

Hulett and Jerry came down for a little fish therapy. We surely had to work for them! Funky water, and PLENTY of discourteous fishermen, made it a little challenging. I told the guys we would have to stay patient and patient they were! Later in the day, we had the Blue Wave Boats pointed north,…

A co-worker of mine has been doing good on the reds around the black river outlet West of the lighthouse. He's using a black split tail grub on a lead head bouncing off the bottom back to the boat. Hope this helps and good luck. Lake P had been peaceful lately with this hot weather.

I usually fish out of IDJC (island south of PAC) but am looking to scope out a new area and I have the Leeville area in mind. There is a kayak launch down there and it looks to have a lot of broken marsh options. I expect to get into some reds, but also hoping to get into some SPECs so my…
