Hunting season is coming up, don't forget the Louisiana Sportsman free online classifieds are the easiest way to buy and sell guns, bows, duck boats or any hunting and fishing gear!
I spoke with one of our users today who posted his browning shotgun and in less than 24 hours had been contacted by over 10 users, had sold the gun for his asking price in cash and had 3 more users who said I'll take it if the first guy doesn't.
Every month over 500,000 people use LouisianaSportsman.com and it is the single best marketplace for hunting and fishing enthusiasts in Louisiana! Thank you again to all of our users and have a great 2015 Hunting Season!

Discovery released this new promo for shark week.
We have started to make some updates to the front page of the site as well as technical updates behind the scenes to improve page speeds etc. We have also changed some guidelines on types of ads we accept and eliminated some from the site.
One of our biggest priorities has been making our content easier to navigate on phone/tablet and easier to find. We hope this first step has helped.
Please let us know if you are having any problems with pages not loading etc. Feedback always appreciated. This is a very small portion of some big updates but your user experience is our top priority.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) proposed a 44-day recreational red snapper season for Gulf of Mexico state waters at its meeting Feb. 13 in Orlando.
This season would start June 1 and end July 14. The proposed 2013 season is inconsistent with the current proposed federal season, which is currently expected to be about 27 days but may be shortened once state seasons in all Gulf state waters are finalized.
The Commission will make a final decision on this season at the April Commission meeting in Tallahassee.
While the federal limit for how many pounds of red snapper can be caught has increased, the season length has gotten shorter because of more fishing effort and larger fish, according to federal fishery managers.
After listening to public comment, the Commission chose to go inconsistent based on reports that the upcoming federal stock assessment would likely show red snapper populations are doing better than previously thought and reports from anglers that the fishery is improving and preference is to have a longer season.
The Commission also gave direction to FWC staff to look further into other long-term management options for red snapper.
For more on the proposal that was given to the Commission, visit MyFWC.com/Commission.
That was about 5 years ago, we would test boats there on a fairly regular basis if the lake was rough from a north wind.
I've run up and down that canal in a 38 Fountain speed boat at 90+ mph testing doing when the lake was rough. Obviously, we turned around well north of the interstate. I have no idea what the canal is like by the interstate bridge or the little canals that branch off to the west but the main canal close to the lake is plenty deep for a fishing boat.
Captain Marty LaCoste just posted photos of a boat full, maybe he will chime in with some pointers? or you might catch him at the marina while you're there.
Tom try posting a report from your phone, night and day difference in ease of use.
Thanks for posting, new multi-photo layout should make it way easier to show off your reports now!
We will be making additional updates but we won't be changing anything back...sorry guys.
We tried a few and don't see a problem. Can you give us some additional details about which tide guide you're looking at and your computer/web browser specs?
Maybe as cat food.
Ricky Pon is correct, those techniques really don't work. We have some other methods though.
We have a new tool that will be ready in a few days that other admins will be able to remove these more quickly.
We are testing and refining it now with our staff.
We're building a few new tools to stop them. We block them for a few months and then they come back...
Would you mind expanding on the topic of 'comment abuse'? We welcome feedback on that aspect of the site as well. The reports and classifieds will be made mobile friendly in about a week.
We appreciate the feedback. Are there any parts of the site specifically you're having trouble finding what you want?
We are still working on the rollouts and tracking down bugs. The biggest difference is that our site will be much easier to use on your phone which we know is important to our users.
We are rolling out the second set of new mobile pages tonight. (Monday) Please post any issues you are having in the comments of this report.
We have warnings in our classifieds section that make it very clear you should use caution and avoid anyone who is not willing to transact in person.
The video you're trying to post in the other report is breaking the HTML on the page. Please post a link to their page but refrain from embedding a video from their site for now until we figure out a way to make it compatible.
Thanks for updating us. One of our partners had them listed as danger-zone and not fully blocked. They should be blocked from accessing us on any of our partner networks. Please let us know if you see them again.
Thanks for the info on King.com we have blocked them from our site. Please keep reporting any problems this info helps make our site better for everyone!
Hey guys, I want to take a quick minute to explain how these things happen and how we work to prevent it. We need your help to track these down and here is why:
We use a sophisticated set of tools that allow us to sell our excess ad inventory. Those buyers access that inventory in an auction type environment and bid on groups of impressions from around the internet. We have a strict set of rules about who and what can be advertised on our sites. We also have rules about what types of ads you see. Anytime you see a video ad or an ad that plays sound, those advertisers have broken our rules and gotten around the filters we have in place.
Any information you can provide when you see these ads will help us track down these advertisers and block them. Here are examples:
The products in the ad
The domain the ads are loading from (the bottom bar of your browser might say 'waiting for videoads.com/blahblahetc/.....'
Your Operating system (windows or mac etc)
Your browser (internet explorer or chrome etc)
The more info we have the better able we are to track down the problem ads. We work hard to provide you with high quality content and a great place to discuss the outdoors or buy and sell via our classifieds free of charge. We use this website all day, every day and we will ban every advertiser we find breaking our rules.
