Anyone with any knowledge of who the presidents are of HorseShoe Hunting Club and Magnolia Hunting Club around Franklinton, La? Does anyone know if Woodyard Hunting Club has any openings? or any other club in Washington Parish. Anything would be greatly appreciated!
Horseshoe's president used to be Jerry Hunt from Enon. I don't know if he still is.

I would like to hear how people handle the age old problem of getting off a stand with deer very nearby. In my case my bow stand is near my feeder and there is no way I can climb down quietly enough for them not to see or hear me. My camera shows the does often staying around the feeder for a few…

On Friday, October 26th, deer were moving late morning. Saw this 10 pt at about 9 a.m. from 300 yards following a doe. I watched them feed for over 30 minutes as they gradually moved towards me. The buck came within 20 yards when I took the shot.

Just wanting to hear some reports (good or bad) on deer hunting during the Thanksgiving weekend. I spent the long weekend chasing ducks and now thinking I should have been chasing deer.

On December 29th, a shotgun was lost between Thibodaux and Shriever in its case. Please, if you have any information about this gun, contact me. A cash reward is being offered for its return.

This is older video but still one of the best ever done. It popped up on on YouTube and wanted to pass it along. Good stuff.

What is some good deer feed that the HOGs will not eat first. I'm tired of putting out corn and the hogs eat it before the deer.

Have been watching this site for quite some time. Have heard ideas about problems with deer hunting with dogs. When is the state going to do someting about this situation. The way I see it they want some kind of management but will not do what it takes to really promote it. This state is…

Just finished our bi-annual trip to SW Nebraska. It was very memorable trip to say the least. 3 tags and 3 muley bucks. Saw some really big bucks as the rut was in full chase mode. It can be really difficult with nervous does dragging a prospective buck a mile in seconds. It came down to the last…

I was blessed with a successful hunt in southwest Texas over the last couple of days. With only 2.5 days to hunt, the pressure was on. We were hunting on a friend's private family property in the Davis Mountains near Mitre Peak. It is a beautiful property with a wide variety of habitat,…

I was proud to be able to put my 7yr old son on his first deer during the primitive season opening weekend. He was lucky enough to harvest a nice, young 8pt buck at 15 yards from our ground blind. Buck Creek Hunting Club in Claiborne Parish near Haynesville.

Just returned from my annual deer hunting trip to Nebraska, this year made 26 years I have been chasing deer in that state and have enjoyed every season. The weather was unusually warm but that didn't slow down the deer action much. There were five of us hunting this year and we all had our two…

This past Saturday afternoon my good friend took this nice 10 point from my place near Sicily Island. We had numerous trail-cam pics of him and had him patterned pretty good during bow season but just could never close the deal. Gun season changed that and he was able to put this nice buck down…

I want to share this info as I just love monitoring my property along with the deer herd. Over the last 5 years I have put together that the majority of the Does on my property give birth around the 4th of July. If you backup 200 days that puts the peak of the rut around Mid-December in my area…

Anyone ever hunt here? I know it just opened back up was looking to try it out. How is this place for bowhunting?
It didn't stay open for long, its closed again due to flooding through November. The best way to stay updated with the refuge is to follow the Lower Mississippi River Refuge page on Facebook. It hasn't been open since the 2016 flood, I've given up on it. Sorry for the bad news. Goodluck

Looking to get a deer head mounted. Any suggestions for local taxidermy person in the River Ridge, Laplace, New Orleans area? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Was wondering if anyone is shooting a cva hunter in .35 whelen and if so what ammo shoots the best out of it for you? Thanks
Best two I've found are the Barnes 180 gr. and the federal fusion 200 gr. I really like the Barnes excellent accuracy pass 100 yds. and hits like a truck!

Just proves that city folk don't know what to do with a gift. No one grabbed a gun! ;)

Just bought a new tripod deer feeder with 4 settings to feed. What times are recommended to set the feeding times? And should I use all 4 times to feed? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
Right before signup and right before sundown think about what time your gonna possibly hunt it and get em used to coming to feeder for that time

With low expectations, due to the severe record setting heat, I bow hunted the Atchafalaya Delta WMA on opening day, just like I have for the past 34 years. Right after daylight, I distinctly heard a deer coming in from the marsh. As it came into sight about 125 yds to my left, I began to video…
