I was doing some scouting for deer season in my pirogue. I didn't see any, but for some reason began to wonder if anyone has ever heard of a hunter in a pirogue being attacked by an alligator?

What iPhone or droid apps are you using to assist you in your deer hunting? Just wondering if there are some that are worth a look. I would want one that has aerial photos as well as topo info.

I know there is a formula for figuring this out, but i'm sure someone already knows the answer. Which will go in the shallowest water: A hunter, with all his gear, in a one man pirogue(12 ft) or a two man pirogue(14 ft). Yes, the one man pirogue is lighter, but does the
two man pirogue displace enough water to make up the difference?

Where would you take your bow to have the draw length shortened? How much should i expect to pay to have it done? Not sure exactly how much, but probably 2 in, maybe.

Pirogue has 2 leaks. One crack in a V shape about 2 inches total. Another about the size or a quarter. Have you had any success using the fiberglass repair kits from Auto Zone or Walmart? Is it too difficult for a complete greenhorn to do the job?

Can i get some info on using a pirogue to hunt with. I'll be using a pirogue to get to some areas to hunt this year. I always carry a spotlight, but are some type of lights required? I'll have a life jacket, but is it required? Also, do you have to be out of the pirogue to shoot? Thanks, and any other info you would share would be great.

What is this 'gun show loophole' these pompous blowholes are talking about closing? Every time i've been to a gun show if i wanted to buy a gun i had to submit paperwork for a background check.

Got the unexpected news yesterday that my dog is heartworm positive after being on Ivermectin for years. Other than the $800.00 treatment the Vet wants to do, has anyone ever had any success doing something different? I see where there has been success using a treatment of Ivermectin ( 3-4 times the usual amount) and Doxycycline for 33 weeks. Anyone have any experience or thoughts?

My 13 yr old has expressed an interest in bow hunting. I certainly want to encourage him. I've never bow hunted in my life, only rifle and muzzleloader. I need a place that will not only sell the bow, but set it up and show us the right way to start. Someone mentioned Chags in Metairie. Any other places in the Metairie, New Orleans area?

Trying to help out a newbee to deer hunting. He's looking for a 270 or 30:06 and on a budget. It looks like the guns that fall into his price range are the Savage Axis, Remington 770, and the Mossberg 100 ATR. I've heard the goods and lots of not so goods about these guns. But, its the only way at this point to get him in woods. Which of these guns would you go with?

October 09, 2012 at 4:40pm

How should you dispose of old ammo? Not a large amount, but loose 22's, 9mm, 270, shotgun shells. Some are rusting, some may have been under water.

Anyone purchasing firearms thru GunBroker? Other than the purchase price and shipping, what other costs are there? I see that firearms must be shipped to an FFL licence holder, what is that and is there another cost for that? I see that there are some good deals to be had on GunBroker if they don't nickel and dime you to death with add on fees. Any good or bad experiences with them? Thanks

The blood sucking mosquitoes are here. My labs are on heartworm meds, but i'd still like to keep the mosquitoes off of them. I'm currently running a large fan at night that they like to lay in front of, but thats a problem when it rains. Anyone doing or using a product that does the trick?

March 14, 2012 at 3:26pm

Seems like every day i see another big deer has been taken. Great job by all you guys and gals. It seems like this many big deer is alittle unusual. Or do you think we are just seeing more because of the posting of the stories and pictures? I'd like to belive that our deer herd is growing larger in numbers and in body and rack size. What do you think?

Hey...Hey you...The idiot in the Red Toyota Tacoma that drove in the left lane from Laplace to Metairie on I-10....GET OUT OF THE LEFT LANE IF YOU ARE NOT PASSING SOMEONE!!! It doesn't matter if you are doing the speed limit, MOVE OVER. If you want to be a Highway Patrolman, go to the Academy and become one but, untill then, MOVE OVER. How do you know that the guy trying to pass you for 15 miles was not on his way to the hospital to see a love one? Maybe he needed to get to the Airport for a flight. Also, please take the Louisiana Sportsman Fleur de lis sticker off the back of your truck window so that people don't think all of the Sportsman with those stickers are idiots like you. There...I'm done...

Those blood suckers are back. My dogs stay on heartgard year around, but i want to keep the mosquitoes off of them, especially at night. Last summer i kept a box fan blowing all night and they would sleep right in front of it. The box fan works, i just wonder what everybody else does.

People, I do not know who huntr is, but IF what he says is true, then we as sportsman need to rally around this man. No single man can take on the Law. And if what he says is false, then I hope huntr gets what he deserves. Having said that, If these people in law enforcement are doing this, they need to be stopped, now!!

FOUND! Thanks to all who helped and to our neighbor who actually found him. Buddy is very weak, did not even want to stand up, not sure what happened to him, but at least we have him. We have more questions than answers, but that's not important now. Thanks again everyone, Roger Our family pet Buddy has been missing since Monday night (3-1-10). We had some high winds come thru Luling that night and part of our fence blew down, and he got out. Buddy is a 3 yr old male black Lab. He weighs about 85lbs and has been nuetered. He had on a green Remington collar with ID tags. He went missing from Collier Dr in Luling. If you have seen or heard anything, no matter how un-important you may think it is, please contact me thru this post. Your information may be what we need to find him. If anyone in your neighborhood or club just happens to show up with an adult black nuetered Lab, please think twice about it. It may be legit, or it may be our Buddy. Thanks to all the sportsman for your help.

Why was that perennial pot stirrer Spike Lee on the Saints side line with a Jets jersey on? If you want to wear a jersey, is't there one Saints player that like enough to wear his jersey?

Yeah Ricky, I have never been bothered either. But, with the weather still so warm I've been seeing a lot of them.

Maurepas is tough on an experienced hunter. I'd consider driving over to Sherburne WMA. Plenty of area to park and walk in the woods on dry land. Lots of squirrels and deer and turkeys there. Good luck, buddy

A comment titled: Chewing and digging in response to a report titled: Dog Training

Wow, that pic of the kennel is something else. Look, dogs chew and dogs dig, its natural for them to do so. I have 2 Labs and they both chew and dig, but less now that they are older. Lots of times they are destructive when they are left alone for a long time. They are bored. If you can, try to run them as much as possiable every day. Playing fetch or biking with them on a leash for 30 min to an hour should wear them out a little. A tired dog will not dig or chew as much.

A comment titled: Cold feet in response to a report titled: Frozen toes

A short walk to your deer stand can make your feet sweat. After you get seated, that moisture will turn your feet to icecubes. If you can, change your socks( good wool ones) when you get to your stand. Also, don't lace your boots so tight that it cuts the circulation to your toes.

How do you expect this man to answer.. 'No , it wasn't a fair chase'? Some will say using a high powered rifle is unfair. Some say using a compound bow is unfair. If i go out there naked with only a knife, is that fair? Man, if you don't like what you see, just move on and not piss on this guys parade.
