I have a Remington model 700 7mm. I plan on doing an Elk hunt this fall. I am shooting 150 gr. Rem. core lock for deer. It performs very well and shoots very accurate with this round. What is a good Elk load and brand for a 7mm? Is the 150 gr. Rem. core lock good enough? I would like to get something a little heaver but not sacrifice the performance as I have with the 150 gr. Any inputs are appreciated!
It sure would have been nice if the WL&F to post that the South Farm is closed due to high water. Made a trip towing the four wheeler and all my crawfishing gear for nothing.
Is a 7mm, 150 gr Remington Core Lock a good round for Elk? Do I need to go to a 180 gr or a different bullet?
Does anyone know the story with the sail boat that sunk at the Wine Island Sandbar south of Cocodrie this past week?

I have a CVA OPTOMA 50 cal. Black Powder. I'm having trouble grouping my shots. I'm using 100 gr. of powder and 260 gram Hornady Hollow Point XP. This set up is very accurate in my Tompson Center Omega. I'm grouping about 6' at 100yds with the CVA. I may have to change bullets for the CVA. For those who have tha CVA Accura, what are the powder grams and and bullet type and weight that you use to get a tighter grouping?
Did anyone hear if any of the youths killed this past weekend at Sherburne WMA?

I have an 1999 Honda 450 electric shift. Every now and then it does not want to down shift and have to manually down shift. Has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it? I don't want to spend a ton of money if I can fix it myself.
Need some help! Please give me you opinion on what is a better Elk caliber - 300 win mag or 30-06. Also would like to know bullet weight and type. Looking at both guns by Remington model 700 and trying to decide which is the better. My also use for other game such as deer and hog.
Is there something wrong with the Tide Table under the Weather column? The Tide Tables does not appear there anymore, was it moved to another location?
It's obvious that greenjeans1 has bought and storied up 22 ammo and is trying to sell it at a higher price. This is one of the reasons that 22 ammo is so high is people like this guy buying large amounts, hold and then sell at a high price. I know he's trying to make a profit but it's killing everyone else that enjoys plinking that use to be cheap now cost an arm and leg.
Does anyone know how many turkeys were harvested in Sherburne this past weekend for the Lottery?
Has anyone been to Sherburne South Farm crawfishing yet?
Anybody have any luck with crawfish in Sherburne WMA this past weekend?
Looks good enough to eat!!!! :)
Turkey season was not good for the boys and I this year. We did not hear or see a bird this year. WL&F needs to close down Sherburne for a couple of years to build back up the population. The flood 6-7 years back just about killed all the birds in Sherburne WMA. Congrats on your success!!!!! I might need to start hunting Texas with you.
Mandevillian, How do you do for Sherburne Turkey Lottery? My two boys and I struck out. Did not hear or see a single bird. As of Saturday morning only two jakes were killed.
You are 100% correct. DU has spent and still spending unknown amounts of money north of Louisiana and very little in comparison on Louisiana. The ducks are stopping short. There are more resting areas and food for them in the Mid States than the years before. I've duck hunted for over 50 years and the weather has some to do with the migration but nothing compared to what they are doing in the Mid States. Louisiana use to be the place to duck hunt. Now it's at the bottom of the barrel. I slowly switched from duck hunting to deer hunting because of this.
That's some good eating!!!!!
I can taste it now! Did you hunt the farm? How many birds did you kill?
That could not have been from this past Weekend!!!! NOBODY was catching!
I also witness the same this past Saturday. We ended with one bull red and one keeper trout. We fished from the Monkey Bar to Whiskey Pass with croakers. Wind was not our friend with a ruff surf.
The turkeys did not cooperate this weekend at all. Hear a hen during the Saturday evening hunt. The nats were bad and the thermocell somewhat kept them at bay. This was not a good year at all for turkey hunting. The population needs to building back up, the flood a few years back killed the majority of the population. At lease you caught a few fish!
It is closed due to high water!
My two boys and I got selected for Sherburne WMA Turkey Lottery also. Last year the birds did not want to corporate. Maybe this year we can score on a bird!
Ya Turkey season is Zack's favorite hunting season. I need to try out one of your duck calls on day! Keep me posted on your hunts.
