Congratulation boys and girls of the 2010 Terrebonne Parish Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) team on their repeat State Championship win in the Junior and Senior Divisions held at Camp Grant Walker this past weekend.
Some Low Life decided that our family did not need our paddle boat anymore and helped themselves to it from my yard. Happened sometime between Tuesday night to this afternoon, my son is pretty bummed about it, can not fish our normal saltwater spots and now can not paddle boat the bayou. If anyone sees an orange bottom/tan top paddle boat in Bayou Terrebonne around the Prospect St. vicinity or here about one for sale, drop me a line letting me know where about, so I can check it out.
2009 Jr. and Sr. YHEC State Champs, Congratulations to the Terrebonne Parish NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge Team for a great performance at the state competition. Next stop is National competition in New Mexico...
At 4 pm Sunday Nov. 30, my 12 yr. old son got to fill his first deer tag this season. He dropped this doe in her tracks at about 30 yds. using a 30-06 with a 125 gr. managed recoil load. After passing on a small spike on the way to where we were heading to make a ground blind, this 100 lb. doe was passing through the area about 20 min. later. We had another doe come running by as we were tagging this one. It was his first hunt of this season and first deer I physically have seen on my hunts without him, all my other deer encounters so far were in the dark. On another subject, I can easily see where someone hunting for years could just start dragging a deer and forget to put the Harvest Tag on, I started to drag this deer out and remembered about tagging the her after a couple of steps, but could have easily forgot altogether...EJB
Does the flash scare the deer? Take II one minute later.
Does the flash scare the deer? These sequence of pics were taken with a Moultrie D40 set to 3 pic blast. Have another set I will post only 1 minutes later. There is no corn, rice bran or soy beans put out, just a spot I found that deer like to cross and a scrape shows up every year.
My son and me got choosen for one of the Nov. 8 Lottery Hunt blinds on Mandalay Wildlife Refuge, it was his first duck hunt in the marsh, shooting his own gun and he was some excited. Told him to enjoy the total experience of the whole hunt (predawn boat ride, sunrise, marsh coming alive) and not just the shooting. Think he understood what I was saying after it all happened and not just something in a video game. Was not a lot of ducks, coot and gallinule, but enough to keep the action some what steady and make for a good first hunt. Had teal sitting in the decoys before shooting time and had to wait before shooting. Let my son take most of the shots, which is what the management area is promoting and he ended up with a pretty good mixed bag of waterfowl that he is proud of. He could not wait to get home, clean and pot roast his harvest with some cajun fried rice. He is ready for deer season now. Attached a few pics of the hunt.

My 11 yr. old son got his first shot at a deer on Youth Deer Weekend today, Oct. 27, 2007 at 7:30 am and dropped him in his tracks. Just a button buck, which we did not know till the ground check, but that only added to his excitement of taking his first deer. He was also excited that he spotted the deer in the palmetos before me and was able to setup for a shot without spooking the deer. Made the kill with a 30-06 loaded with Rem. 125 gr. Managed Recoil and made a perfect 60 yd. shoulder shot. The shot was a little on the high side, missed the backstrap, clipped the top of the shoulder blade and only messed up a few ribs, but took out the lungs. He said he is ready to go get a big one now.
Story on NOLA.com about Kyle's surgery, we can all be proud of pulling together to help make his life better.
Madisonville boy gets second cochlear implant

The high-tech coil of electrodes implanted deep in his right ear enables 6-year-old Kyle Couvillion to watch television, recite his ABCs and befriend other children in his neighborhood. Without it, his world would be silent, and he would communicate through sign language instead of through his chirpy, idiosyncratic voice.
But because he only hears out of one ear, he cannot tell what direction sounds come from, so his parents do not let him cross the street by himself. The least bit of background noise makes it difficult for him to sustain a conversation. After three years of intensive speech therapy, his mother still occasionally has to translate for him.
At a summer camp for the hearing-impaired, Kyle's parents met children who had cochlear implants in both ears instead of just one. They could speak and hear as well as children who had been born with perfect hearing.
