I'm planning on going on a trout/redfish fishin trip for my bachelor party. The wedding isn't until the end of next March so I'm wondering when the best time to go would be? If its after the end of March, I'm willing to go after my wedding. I've never been before and I'm pretty pumped about it. There will be 6 of us total so I'm guessing we will need 2 boats. How much per person should we be expecting to spend for just a 1 day trip? Any more information would be appreciated. Thanks

On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States
On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.

The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.

This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.

U..S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.

The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better. View The Full Article Here 14 Nov. 2009

A couple years ago a man posted that a hunting club in Montgomery, around Colfax, had some openings. Whoever that was, if there are any openings for next year, can you email me. Thanks.

Can anyone give some reviews on the PSE Stinger or the Diamond Razors Edge? Both have really good reviews on Cabela's and BPS's website but I'd like to hear something from any of you. Thanks.

I would like yalls opinion of which climbing stand is the overall best? Weight, comfortable, putting on the tree

How do you pass your time sitting in your deer stand for long periods of time? I have a problem being patience enough to sit in the stand for a long time. I can sit in a duck blind just about all day but I just can't sit in my deer stand for a long time. Any advice other than I just have to learn patience? Thanks.

October 02, 2009 at 7:29am

I know its really late but I'm looking for a place or blind to lease for duck season. I've been looking for a place for a while now, but I just decided to post on here. Prefer to stick to within about an hour of Alexandria. Thanks.

I was told the other day that side by sides like rhinos and rangers are now legal on WMA's, is this true? I have not read this or seen this anywhere so I am wondering if this is actually true or not. And I'm sure they are still illegal on NWR's too right? Thanks for the help.

July 10, 2009 at 11:42am

Want to start looking around now for a duck lease for the 09-10 duck season. Just want to get some opinions and suggestions from whoever is willing to help me out. Want to stay around Central and Northeast Louisiana.

How old do yall think this deer is? I'm not worried about score or anything, just age. He seems pretty old to me, patches of hair missing, real skinny, blocky head for the area. I also got a picture about 4 years ago in this same exact spot of a deer that looks a lot like him that looked about 2 1/2- 3 1/2 years old at the time.
I did see him though about mid-August in our garden beside our house with 2 does, watched him about 30 minutes. He was that dark brown color then, the does were both red. It was pretty weird to see him that color in mid-August.

I need a job. I am a LSU student that is home for the summer looking for a job. I live about 10 minutes north of Pineville, La and I'm looking for something as close as possible. I am a finance major going into my senior year so if anyone knows or has an internship that would be great. I am also willing to do manual labor. Thanks everyone.

I was just curious of which brand of wader was everyone's individual favorite, preferably under $200. I know everyone has their own opinion but I'm looking at getting some new ones for the first time in about 3 or 4 years and was just wanting to get some help. Thanks in advance.

May 11, 2008 at 10:07pm

Anybody fished Cotile Lake lately? What's going on out there right now with the bass? Where can I find em and what to catch em on? I haven't been out there in a few years and with the river like it is, I'm going to go try it out. Thanks in advance guys!

I was just wondering when people talk about ultra light spinning rods, what kind of spinning rods are they talking about? Is it actually an ultralight rod, or a medium spinning rod, medium heavy spinning rod or what? Thanks.

April 24, 2008 at 10:14am

What are the bass doing right now on Toledo Bend? Where they at (ridges, on banks, on trees) and what's best to use right now? Going for the weekend and want to waste little time looking for em. Thanks.

April 08, 2008 at 3:01pm

What's a good all around arsonal of rod and reels for bass fishing if you have about 3-4 rod and reels. I mean like with the ratios for the reels and the rod size and stiffness. Thanks yall.

I hunt a little of everything really. I've been looking at the summit viper, based on what a friend of mine said. He has one and loves it. I have a api, about 7 years old, and I dont like the way it carries and the chains are a pain to me. Just looking for something new. All opinions welcome.

A comment titled: thats what i heard in response to a report titled: Ducks?

yea tiger, thats what ive heard too. the delta right now is just one huge refuge for them. thousands and thousands of acres of food, water, and no one to disturb them at all. locked the gates, not even allowing anyone in there. i did hear also that they are petitioning it and hopefully it will be open for them by the middle of the week. id like to just go in there and look around.

A comment titled: wondering the same in response to a report titled: Deer Hunting in Baton Rouge

I go to LSU and was also wondering if there was any place close to Baton Rouge to hunt. It gets expensive having to drive all the way home on weekend to hunt and to have to way on weekend to hunt. A place close to Baton Rouge (within 30 min.) would be great.
