anyone know if you can use a 20 gauge pump shooting slugs for reg gun season on WMA? Ive read through the rules but im not 100 % clear.
Wanted to try a new approach this year and was curious if anyone else does it or if im crazy for even trying...I was thinking about stalk hunting deer and hogs on pearl river but i know pearl is thick and nasty as ive already been hunting there with a climber. Any spot and stalk guys out there? Using my .35 whelen so i wont need to get right up on em.
anybody having luck with bass in this area? I find rudock is a bit better than manchac but i rarely catch any big boys...every now and then i get lucky with a nice 5-6 pounder...
I have been hitting Sherburne hard and not seeing anything at all...except for a doe and her fawn in a no hunt zone coming out. I mainly hunt off of big alabama near the atchafalaya wildlife refuge. Not looking for exact coordinates,but are there any areas i should move on to? This is my first bow season and really looking to put one in the freezer before firearm comes along.
Noticed so far Indian Bayou rd is a hot spot especially towards the end of that road...anyone having any luck? To me indian bayou is more tore up with hogs than oil well but i have yet to sit on oil well this season...
Has anyone camped out here? I want to setup my tent next week but i'm just curious about it...do you leave your tent up and unattended while you hunt?
Would i be crazy in attempting to hunt some of this land with a pirogue and a pair of rubber boots?
Would like to start hunting hogs with my bow but only have public land available where you can only kill hogs during an active hunting season...private land is year long during shooting hours but there lays my problem...no private land. I live in tickfaw and was wondering if anyone had some hogs need killing and would let me on their land (not really looking for paid guided hunts fyi) shoot me a message.
May be a dumb question but can you hunt hogs on WMAs during the summer? hunting reg lists them as outlaw quadrupeds that can be taken year long during legal daylight shooting hours.
After a recent scouting trip i found several good spots where i want a stand,but there was a lack of good trees i could use a climber on. I know on the wmas you cant leave your stand up....do any of you guys pack a hang on and climbing sticks (like a 20' stick ladder)? I know the weight would be around 30lbs with a stand and ladder...
Pearl river opened back up following flood waters but after doing some scouting there this past weekend,its still very much under water. The firing range is closed and most of the oil well rd trails have knee deep water and plenty of cotton mouths that love to just sit there in prime position to strike your male parts.
Bought my first bow a couple of weeks ago,a hoyt power max...currently set at 50lb and 27.5 draw. I shot a dozen or more arrows every day for a week sighting in and working on form...now my bow arm (left arm) is super sore right under my shoulder almost like I pulled something, not a little sore,I can't push too hard on things without it hurting like hell. I'm fairly active, what's going on here?
anybody know if this area has an ok deer population? Its 17 minutes from my house so its very appealing. Havent scouted it yet but may be doing that soon.
Sorry guys but i gotta be that new guy that asks random dumb questions...Going to be bow hunting for the 2015 season (maybe even Jan this year) which i am new to,in addition to that, i will be hunting on wma land which is also new to me as i used to hunt on private land. Im good on everything but one question plaques my mind...how am i going to drag the deer back with my backpack,tree stand, and bow?
Forgive the potentially ignorant question but I ddecided to bow hunt on wma land and read that residents between age 16-59 will need an archery license but I can't find anywhere in Louisiana that offers bow hunter education.is it something I just tack on when I purchase my hunting license?
I have a 2011 wilderness ride 135 I would like to trade for a Jackson cuda 12. I love my ride 135 but it's weight and length can be inconvenient at times.13.6' 80 lbs. great kayak just want something 12' and lighter. My ride is not for sale,trades only.
I'm looking to trade an Olympic Arms Ar15 for a Jackson Coosa or Cuda 12 (must be one of these)Kayak must be in excellent condition. Paid 1000$ for AR and put another 500$ in accessories. AR will come with hard case,6 30 round magazines,about 100 rounds ammo and of course the accessories that are on the rifle (voretx sparc red dot,magpul foregrip,single point sling, magpul front/UTG rear backup sights)
Not a deal breaker but i would prefer the yellow jacket camo color or one of the other camo colors.
Used to make my own leaders with nylon coated wire,got lazy and bought some pre-made monofilament leaders but having a problem....the leader wants to coil up even with my bait on there.tried keeping it straight and tight for a few hours but it just goes right back to coiling up...anyone else have this problem??
I am in desperate need of advice.I have been trying since last year to catch redfish but have come up empty handed every time! I have fished mainly in lacombe off of lake rd but have also made a trip to shell beach recently.I feel like i am doing everything right but i cant bag a single one! I fish the marsh area with 2 rods,one with a popping cork and 14'' leader and the other with a 1/4 oz jig head.For bait ive used DOA shrimp and the gulp alive shrimp as well as fresh cut crab.Got redfish fever bad,can anyone point me in the right direction?? Note that i am new to saltwater fishing....
I am a bass fisher wanting very much to start catching reds. I plan on launching my kayak at the end of lake rd in Lacombe and was wondering if this area will produce? I will be using a popping cork with DOA shrimp on a 18 inch leader.Any tips are greatly appreciated as this will be first time hunting for redfish.
