Start of the second split did not disappoint. Conditions were good for a duck hunt. North wind around 10mph water height was good with slight overcast skies.

We had a couple of shots early then not much happened for a while and I got worried this may not be a…

Are you still required to carry the HIP Certification on your possession while hunting migratory game birds. Reason I ask is that I applied for my HIP the same time I applied for my deer tags. I have a lifetime license. Well, it came attached to the yardstick of deertags. I don't want to carry…

Guys,do any of you hunt the lower Lafitte area,say perhaps the Mud Lake,Bayou St. Denis,Bay Cray area? Trying to find out how the duck hunting has been that far out in the past few years and what kind of ducks are bagged. Thanks for any responses.
No one hunts the lower Lafitte area?

I have been privileged to hunt ducks all my life in Louisiana. I had a uncle that took me when i was 9 to his lease in cameron and from then on it has been a addiction. I now have 30 years of experience duck hunting. I have chased them all over the state, been on good and bad hunts. I have noticed…

Amen! I've posted similar remarks of how the money goes to keep them from needing to migrate on a Facebook forum for duck hunters, i.e heated ponds and you'd swear I slapped their mothers.

I killed this squirrel at my camp in the basin and was wondering if it is a cross between a fox and grey squirrel. The belly is orange like a fox squirrel, but it has the tail and size of a grey squirrel. Any help? Thanks!
Top is a cat squirrel, bottom is a true gray squirrel.

Anyone hunt ducks on the Mermentau River? We have some family land over there south of Jennings that butts up to the river. Just seeing if the hunting was good to see if its worth making the trip. Thanks
I live there, but can't say i know of anyone who hunts on the river, most people hunt rice fields around here. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to go shoot at least a few wood ducks and maybe teal.

Well here is my results and stories from my last month of hunting including the 4 deer and 3 hogs I shot on the trip. I've haven't been posting because I was away from the computer on my long camp vacation hunting everyday. Now have a freezer full of meat but still finishing off the season bow…

I am kinda new to this deer hunting thing. I bought a bottle of doe urine last year and killed the first day I tried it. This year I bought a bottle of urine and a bottle of urine with estrous. A deer hunting friend told me to make sure the rut has started before I use the estrous or it will…

For the most part the rut in your area is over. The archery season opens in Sept so the gun season can open around the rut, well that is what I understand. I have taken does during the week of Thanksgiving that have already bred.

Anybody ever tried buckbuster seeds? We are trying the fall mix on our land this year just wondering if anybody on here had tried them and what the results were?
We have been useing buckbusters for the past 4 years. All I can say is it works. You will pay more money, but it is well worth it. Big plush food plots.

Need some help. Anyone know of a good trainer for Labs in SE La? I am in Covington, and want to be a part of the training so I can learn too.

Thanks for any help.
Daniel Goldsby of Goldsby Retrievers in Amite is an awesome trainer and a heck of a guy. I highly recommend him for duck dog training.

I love to hunt turkeys, but I am new to the area. I have been doing some hog hunting in the Pearl River WMA and am learning the area farely well. Are there any turkeys in there, and if so where would the highest concentration be? Thanks in advance for your info!
