Blessed again with my 2nd 9pt this year. I can only access the back side of my property by boat so I don’t got often. Decided to try it this morning and by 7 I head something walking in the water and saw this guy. I hadn’t hunted this part of my property in many years but it paid off!

November 14, 2018 at 2:11pm

Took off work for opening of primitive so me and the wife could go hunt. Told her to be in her stand for 6 and I headed out to my spot. Got a text at 6:20 that a doe just jumped the ditch next to her but was still to early to shoot. At 7:17 I heard the crack and boom of the 45-70. I started laughing bc I could just picture the kick of the gun. I texted asking if she was ok and I got a yes. I texted a few more times w no reply. Then I got a picture of a buck dead in the ditch! I was so pumped bc this was her 1st deer! I wanted to go meet her but she said she was fine do I told her to get back in the stand Incase she saw something else. In the mist of texting her and my dad who was not far saying he had two by him I hear a step in the water. I look up and see dark horns which I thought was a 11 I have been hunting for years. I almost throw my phone in the water to grab my gun. I had a 1foot window where he was going to come out in. As soon as his neck was in the window I dropped him in his tracks. Biggest buck for me down in the palmetto swamps. We ended the morning at 7:40 with my wife’s 7 pt and my 9 pt. Best hunting trip of my life and I will not forget it! I am so proud of my beautiful wife on her 1st deer!!

Anybody made it out to crawfish yet? if so how was it.

March 19, 2016 at 2:58pm

Can anyone post some pictures of what south farms look like? I want to go crawfish it this year and just want to know what to expect when I get there. also can I pull a trailer behind my 4wheeler and would a pirogue do any good there or is it shallow enough to walk it all?

Where do I buy a recreational crawfish gear license at?

All i hear is to hunt bedding areas and trails leading from them. It seems simple enough if you hunt in the north but not so much down here. I hunt a section of swamp land with 2 ridges in it. How am i supposed to find trails or bedding areas in nothing but water and palmettos? I have a food plot which i know where they come in and leave at but once they hit the swamp no more trail. I have rub lines that are used every year but have yet to find a bedding area following them back. What do yall do to find the deer??

When will the LDWF decide to make a lottery for bear tags in south louisana!!??? I have seen a very high incress in bears on my property in the last few years. Last year alone we had 7 different bears on our property. I am sure the poulation is high enough for them to open a season. Im not complaing about them running off deer bc the deer are not bothered by them. Feeders are a big problem and i hear of people wanting to kill them bc they constantly knock over feeders. What can we do to get them to open a lottery for them???

I have had 3 game cameras stolen off of my property this year. I need a broken camera for a set up to try and catch whoever is doing this. If anyone has a broken camera they haven't thrown away yet and wouldn't mind giving it to me please text me at 337-322-7873. Thanks

thanks for everyone who gave me advice on my deer bedding in swamps post. it gave me the confidence i needed to hunt my stand in the swamp and wait the deer out. i killed this 125lb 8pt sunday at 8:45 in the am. was a young 1 1/2- 2 r old deer but my biggest so far. i still welcome any advice for swamp hunting to help me out.

October 30, 2011 at 8:51pm

Im wondering if deer bed in the same place every day or in the same area. i hunt in a palmetto swamp and they seem to bed under palmettos that have a little dry ground around them. i have high ridges but they don't seem to be sleeping there. jumped 2 does and a buck today after the hunt just walking and souting around. if any of u other swampers have any imput or advice i'd love to hear it. maybe it can help me w/ some stand placements.

is it best to hunt when the moon is underfoot or overhead? i'm going to try and use the lunar table for the 1st time this yr.

October 10, 2011 at 10:07pm

has anyone heard anything about hogs not being safe to eat right now b/c of some kind of disease they have? my wife supposedly heard this on the news and i'm not seeing anything on it so i'm just wondering.

August 21, 2011 at 6:31pm

i'm wanted to put out some bamboo poles for catfishing and was wondering where would i tie my string on the pole. do i tie my string on the tip of the pole or will it break off if i get a nice fishi on. or would i tie to the base of my pole and just let the string hang off the tip?

August 14, 2011 at 8:43am

i'm thinking about getting a gillnet to catch some gar and catfish. anyone ever use one? i need some tips on what size to get and how to set it.

April 22, 2011 at 7:31am

I know there is a lot of catfishing in the vermillion river. i'm wondering if yall catch just blue and channel catfish or if there are flatheads also. i never caught or ate a flathead and i'm wanting to catch some. if yall do catch flatheads how do yall catch them??

So after looking through my game pics from the last 4 yrs this buck I killed was the 11 from previous yrs. guessing his age at 5 1/2 I figure he just started to go down hill this yr and was only a 9 pt. Glad to have finally got him. This is a picture of him in early September before he lost weight from the rut. And my wife’s deer ended up being a 8pt bc I hung my ring on a sticker at the base of his horns so one up for her.

Where do I purchase a rec crawfish license? Anywhere that I get a fishing license?

Do you need the license to fish the little tripod nets anywhere or is that covered with a fishing license? I know I need the license for the wire nets.

February 18, 2016 at 4:36pm

Amen brother. I agree we need someone who will listen to us rather then what there studies say for some areas. The 1st split so for has been horrible. But like you say come end of jan to feb my ponds will be full of ducks when I can do nothing but watch them. They had a meeting and survey for what? So that they can still make the dates from what Chad wanted bc he usually kills ducks in his area early, BS.

A comment titled: bear in response to a report titled: BEARS

well 225quackaddict there are constant problems with the bears digging in trash and in peoples yards and messing up property. in st mary parish it is a problem. and people that hunt big game in africa, that makes u so upset, give the meat to the people there. it's actually a good thing b/c the villagers have food to eat. just b/c someone kills something and doesnt eat it does not make them not a sportsman/woman. hunting is a SPORT. i hunt and kill things that i don't really care to eat but i give it to people who are not fortunate enough to hunt but love the meat. we spend money on conservation efforts so we can continue to hunt and kill, regardless if we eat it r donate it. just bc u don't agree w something doesn't make everyone else a non sportsman/woman

A comment titled: zone in response to a report titled: deer areas

i do understand that the zones are according to the rut, which i agree with. but the doe and buck days i do not get. if you can shoot 3 of each regradless then dont have sex days. its hard enough at times to catch your deer coming through your area. i know for some people they rely on deer meat to sustain them through the year and it is just going to be that much harder for them to get it now.

A comment titled: swamps in response to a report titled: deer bedding in swamps
