My nephew Gabe White from Kentucky enjoyed his first saltwater trip at Pointe Aux Chenes this past Saturday . He got his first speckled trout & a rat red .Truly a Good Time along with my wife & our daughter and her husband Chris Olivier who led the way through the area . We used live cocahoe minnows , shrimp & Berkley Swim Shads , pogy scent to get the bite .

Just tracks,you cant't cook em,you can't mount em . But they are a true sign of deer in the area.Myself and my brother-in-law Mike Gros who recently retired from the Post Office decided to make a deer hunt at the Bayou Teche NWR on 11/23/13. Though we did not see a deer the anticipation of the possibility was still an enjoyable time. I have seen deer before at the refuge but was unable to get a good shot. Mike is recovering from knee surgery but has a love for the outdoors and did not let it hinder him from getting out there. Maybe next hunt we'll have some venison.

On Oct.23rd the movement was slow on the squirrels part.I started calling about 9:15 am , using my Pop's method w/ my index finger against my lips ,almost like calling a kitten . The first one I bagged was moving at the top of a cypress tree . The second one came down a cypress tree about 20 yards away barking at me. And the last one was only 7 yards away . I got all three sitting in one spot on a folding stool w/storage bag beneath and a shoulder strap. It makes it a lot more comfortable on the knees and ankles etc. Next time I hope to get more than three.

Better weather conditions and being retired a plus for squirrel hunting . I bagged a gray,red fox and black fox squirrel on Monday hunting with my brother in the basin.I use a 12 guage Remington with Federal 7/12 Gameload .It is always a blessing to be in the basin seeing all the beautiful cypress trees and nature.

We saw tracks on the headland going into the woods on the day of the hunt this past saturday . In 05 and 06 there was some nice rubs in the area but I didn't really scout it this year,I had been squirrel hunting with my brother on a family lease.

I hunted the Garden City unit, 2005 after hurricane Rita . I was bow hunting there in 2006 and walked up on a bear in the ragweed. He growled at me twice until I stopped!!! I was at the west end of the pond by the pipelines. Thank God they cut the grass this year.We were at this same area 11/23/13.Two other hunters from Franklin were there also.I hunted the East north bend unit gun hunting 05 or 06 and saw a deer in the cane field as I walked on the headland to my truck right at dark.The warm weather has kept me from going in there especially your report of a rattler,lol! If you search lasmag's website for rattlesnake eats squirrel in Patterson you'll see one I killed almost in my sister's yard.
