Where does everyone launch at Lake Verret? We went yesterday and launched at Attakapas...which was flooded. I've heard of launches on the north shore, but not sure where they are. Also, where is best fishing in there? We fished the east shore just north of the landing and did ok, caught catfish and bream. Looking forward to going back, seems like lots of good fishing all over. May try the west bank across from Attakapas next time.
Anybody know what kind this is? Originally I thought it was a cottonmouth, but the bands on it are making me think other wise. It's not a rat or chicken snake. Definitely looks to be poisonous by the shape of its head and you cannot really see it, but it did have the 'cat eyes.'
joined a club in Arkansas, then set up extra feeder and camera behind my house. Got home, checked the camera and saw this.
Anybody know of a good game processor near Walker? There used to be one close to my house, but I cannot find a # for them. IIRC the name was Full Rut game processing or something like that. Also, there was Drop Tine but cannot find a # for them either. Just need to have some ground.
Who sets the amount of the fine of a citation issued by the LDWF?
Anybody know what happened to the guy selling the tow ropes?
I got an e-mail yesterday of a big deer being killed inside the city limits of Denham Springs. Wow!! Here is the story, "I shot this huge 8pt Friday afternoon in my neighbors," John Ed the man," back yard after 3 years of trying to catch up to him. My opening day hunt on Thursday afternoon was rudely interrupted by two of our other neighbors dogs coming into my feed pile at prime time and deciding to do the wild thing. After several attempts to distract them I decided the best thing to do was to get and down kick the s### out of the dogs and try again on Friday. I thought kicking was a better alternative than shooting. This is what you get when you hunt urban deer. Oh well. Friday afternoon I get on the stand a 6:00 and start listing to the Denham Springs high school football game, as the high school is maybe 1000 yards from my house. Sounded like a good game. Around 7:00 pm a doe comes into the field immediately followed by the two monster bucks that I have sent most of you pics of for years thanks in ALL to John Ed. To my amazement they came directly into the feed pile and at that moment I knew this was more than likely the only chance I would at this buck all year. John Ed and I both felt that if I did not get him in the first few weeks he would go totally nocturnal like he has done in years past. I let them feed for a few minutes then pulled up my crossbow, put the cross hair on his shoulder and let it fly. I heard the thump and he dropped in his tracks! Of all the deer I have harvested over the years no words can describe that feeling at that moment. I got off the stand and his head was still up so I decided to put one more in him to finish him off quickly. I have not scored him yet but here are some rough measurements. 26" main beams, 5 ? bases, 19 inside, 11 and 12" G2, 5 ? tines, 6" G3's."
