I have to call it like I see it. Why are Louisiana Sportsman articles so lacking in credible knowledge and experience? I read this article by Glynn Harris about a deer killed in Concordia parish and he writes about 'planted CRP'. That is the exact opposite definition of the function of Conservation Reserve Program acreage. This is very simple information and it's free on the internet.
And then there's this Apex Predator joke that continues to write about sprinting through the woods with a firearm. Anyone who has been taught to hunt or spend time in the woods by anyone with any degree of intelligence would never do this. It's a stupid thing to do to say the least. This guy acts like he just got into hunting a few years ago and puts out terrible and impractical stories. 'To each their own, right?' No. Incorrect. There's no need to continue this ineptitude. Read, learn and take pride in being responsible and intelligent. Louisiana Sportsman needs to raise the bar.
There's a report on the home page about crabbing violations. Can any of the genius' in law enforcement explain how some were arrested and some cited? How can individuals charged with the same crimes get treated differently? Why not just arrest all of them or none of them? Come on law enforcement community, tell me your excuses for treating the same situation differently.
Hello all, I collect and grow fig trees and heard about some fig trees planted long ago by immigrants along Bayou Cook in the marsh. As a collector, these trees hold incredible promise and I would be forever grateful to hear ANY information about these trees. My goal is to PRESERVE these varieties. Has anyone harvested cuttings from these trees and would be willing to trade, I have dozens of varieties to trade. Preservation of varieties like these is very important to me.
I love that this article supports the strenuous efforts of our wildlife agents. They absolutely provide us with incredible opportunities to hunt and fish safely in the best state to do such in the entire United States. This article does, though, overgeneralize a few factors taking away from its accuracy. Yes, game wardens have been known to tow in a boat or even help drag a deer out of the woods as I have witnessed both of these situations. But to say that they are working even a slight majority of their hours in these superman-esque roles is an over generalization. The same, for example, as assuming that even a small amount of the contacts a wildlife agent encounters in the field would try to murder them. The cases of a wildlife agent being intentionally murdered are incredibly rare in the aggregate. What could be credible presumptions by wildlife agents may turn into assumptions, which are by definition not based on facts. Assumptions and presumptions are not the same and dont we all know what assumptions lead to? Sure they encounter more scumbags in their line of work but maybe treating someone, who has no other intention but to cooperate and follow the warden's orders, like a murderer is a bad look. Also, any employed person knows that attitude counts for something. Their job may be tough but lots of guys could be killed at work and it doesnt mean that he cant be a pleasant person. I have only had pleasant encounters with wardens but to say that happens to everyone else every time is absolutely false. They do a fantastic job as far as Im concerned but lets not over generalize their limited goodwill or discount the situations in which they make mistakes or dont handle a situation as best as possible, at the detriment of some unsuspecting person.
