I'm from SE Louisiana but never been hunting before. I finished the training & think I have everything I need. Was going to hunt either Maurepas Swamp or Joyce from a canoe. But I've not scouted those areas before and want to stay safe during hunting season. Is anyone interested in taking…

How old are you? Would you consider hunting other areas besides the ones you listed?

I have heard thru the grapevind that LDWF is considering increasing the size of the restricted areas on coastal WMA's know as Limited Access Areas?

As I read the rule it restricts combustion engines from being allowed within the LAA areas 24/7 from September thru the end of…

I will work for ducks I have a 14 ft by 36 with a 15 merc is it worth it?

Any safe places to park and throw the kayak in to get to some areas to hunt? I can easily cover 4 miles one way. Was thinking of St. James Boat Club? If anyone wants to email instead of replying publicly you can email me at info@bckfc.org

Thanks in advance!
Ive got a moat and motor, care to hunt Maurepas?

Looking for advice, not anybodies hot spot or honey hole. My son (12) and I put in for the lottery gun hunt on Tensas and got picked. I have never hunted the area. Just wondering what type of landscape is it? Oak sloughs or pine woods? Should we focus efforts in the northern, central or Southern…

Noticed so far Indian Bayou rd is a hot spot especially towards the end of that road...anyone having any luck? To me indian bayou is more tore up with hogs than oil well but i have yet to sit on oil well this season...
Deer are scarce. Hogs are hard to find many dont see or kill any. I have got a couple hogs but they small under 100 pounds is what I call small. seen 3 deer in a month.

Has anyone camped out here? I want to setup my tent next week but i'm just curious about it...do you leave your tent up and unattended while you hunt?
Yes i have hunted there several times and left my stuff there no body messed with nothing, you will be ok

Pearl river opened back up following flood waters but after doing some scouting there this past weekend,its still very much under water. The firing range is closed and most of the oil well rd trails have knee deep water and plenty of cotton mouths that love to just sit there in prime position to…

Any recent news on the river reintroduction or restoration projects? There's some work being done at the intersection of Blind River and the diversion canal but not sure what it is...

It has been years that I have hunted in bucktail campground just out of homer La. Anyone been there lately? looking to go. info wanted
Yes .. recommend it!! There are some old farts that have hunted there for years that think they own the
place...but dont let that stop you...you will know who they are if you meet them...dont believe anything they say and above all dont TRUST them with any info....

Would i be crazy in attempting to hunt some of this land with a pirogue and a pair of rubber boots?
Not At All crazy. That would probably be the one of the best ways to hunt Maurepas.

New to hunting. I'm looking to bow hunt hog in Bayou Bienvenue. I'd be glad of any advice. Am I good to hunt here with a basic license? Where should I go to learn about bow hunting hog?
Thanks,
Scott
Are you looking for a walk in spot, or going in a boat?

I am thinking about trying Caney Lake this year from a boat and am wondering if I need to get a special permit and if so how I go about that.

Going crabbing, looking for a good spot around the Delcambre area. Will b using line from bank. Anybody doing any good in that sorrounding area? If so where at?

I moved up to Ruston for school from south Louisiana and am sick to my stomach at the thought of not having a spot to hunt this year. Please if anyone has any advice to give on good places (not trying to take anyones spot) to hunt without a boat, I would greatly appreciate it.

Can anyone give me some info on dove hunting sherburne? Thinking about going out there on saturday. Never dove hunted public land only private. Is the line pretty long? How early do people start lining up? Do they let the field get over crowded? Thanks for the info.
Save your time and go somewhere else. I went the last 2 years and saw maybe 10 birds, and only 4 or 5 of those were in shooting distance. Got there about 8 and I was the only one there, had about 20 hunters in the field at 12:00. I never had a chance to shoot. But if you go good luck to you.

I'm looking for some info on the Sherburne WMA. I would like to make it out there for a couple duck hunts and possibly its been a while for a deer hunt. I'm new to the area but stopped by Hebert Guns and talked with a few folks there and they said this is the closest place to me for some…

Maybe some of you public land regulars can fill me in. I've hunted public land for 5 years now but neverwith an ATV so wanted to clear things up to not get myself a ticket out there. Regarding ATV/UTV trails on WMA property. Does this mean golf carts/rangers cannot be used on ATV trails? Also…

Have to stay on designated trails, but read the pamphlet for each WMA. Some allow you to retrieve your game with an ATV, some don't. Some do not even have ATV trails period

May be a dumb question but can you hunt hogs on WMAs during the summer? hunting reg lists them as outlaw quadrupeds that can be taken year long during legal daylight shooting hours.

I am from Mandeville and have been getting frustrated at the fact that there is nowhere to shoot. I tried the shooting range, but it's not really what I am looking for. I just want to go somewhere out in the middle of nowhere, set up some targets, and shoot without any fees or rules! I don't…

WMA

Has anybody ever hunted at the Lake Ramsay WMA? Looking for a good spot to go. Also has anybody ever hunted the Hutchinson Creek WMA or the Manchac WMA?

I am looking for suggestions on a location for an archery hunt for my sons aged 13 and 12. I am in New Orleans and want to stay in this area. I do not have access to a boat so where ever I take them we need to be able to walk into.
maybe lake ramsey wma?

A buddy an I are looking to try something new by making a hunt in the Atchafalaya Delta area. I have a small boat with a 25 hp outboard and a pirogue. I was wondering if we could access the area with this setup and if so, where do I launch from?
