24' Formula offshore hull, cuddy cabin is good condition, has canvas top that snaps to windshield, this hull has seen it's last days offshore, unless someone wants to rebuild the back end. i've pretty much stripped it and it looks like the hull would make for a nice cheap house boat getaway type hull, i have the papers on the hull, all good, it can be re-powered and fished again, or turned into a giant duck blind, camp boat, powered or non-powered.
there is no leaks at all, hull is in very good condition, original had inboard / outboard engines, then converted to big outboard, not no power at all, 500 for hull only, another 700 for trailer, trailer has no papers, will consider trades.

i bought a duck stamp at walmart, because they told me i had to buy it through the wild life and fiseries with my basic license, then they went on to tell me that the wild life and fisheries would mail a real stamp to me, well here we are 60 days later and no duck stamp in the mail, i also find out the license is not valid after 45 days. now wlf tells me it's my `problem, if i want a current one to go on the post office web site and buy one, or don't go hunting until i get mines in the mail

House Bill 1082 by Rep. Stuart Bishop has passed the House of Representatives and the Senate Natural Resources Committee. HB 1082 would increase the Louisiana Saltwater License Fee from $5.50 to $13.00. This additional revenue would be used specifically for enhanced data collection and to implement an enhanced science based management program. It has been 15 years since Louisiana had an increase to our Saltwater License Fee.

This was on monday when the woods were quiet, the big ducks responded to call very well. could have shot a bunch of teal and woodies early but decided to wait for the big ducks, and it paid off good.

December 18, 2013 at 8:26am

this is a Louisiana buck, could you even pick up your jaw if you saw this buck coming your way , old memories of jaw droppers. read the story of this giant in Louisiana,

November 26, 2013 at 9:58pm

FYI, i checked out sec 120 today, drug bottom all the way back, no water, only saw about a dozen woodies, don't look to good for Saturday opening.
i think I'll try the open water at indian bayou, saw greys, teal and plenty pol'deaus from i10 crossing.

November 19, 2013 at 10:02pm

try for head shot each time, the usually drop on the spot, only use a very accurate fast shooting .22 rim fire, bigger they are the harder they fall,

November 19, 2013 at 9:06pm

Number 7 all with .22. Long and mag

Last i knew if i bought a gun/rifle from a LA resident i did not have to register it, a few years ago i bought a 7 mag from a local lady, i called the sheriff office and asked if there was some sort of transfer we ( the seller and buyer )needed to do . i.e. apply for registration, i was told no, a simple signed bill of sale in between the 2 parties was enough, now i'm on the atf site and read this article below, did i miss something ?

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA — MICHAEL J. HEBERT, age 62, a resident of Houma, Louisiana, pled guilty in federal court today before U. S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon to receiving and possessing an unregistered firearm, announced U. S. Attorney Dana J. Boente.

i truly the mighty mississippi river holds more cats than anywhere else in the lower 48, but i also believe there are best and worse places, i found a good spot in near fort jackson, from 50 - 100 pounders caught often.

A comment titled: Re: Maurepaus swamp wma in response to a report titled: Maurepaus swamp wma

here's my in take on hunter effort per kill, i consider myself a good to above average hog hunter, close to 100 kill's since 2000, no take maurepas swamp, i figure on about 60 to 70 hours effort to kill or even get a shot, n the other hand Sherburne, i can get a shot daily, about a 10 hour hunter effort per shot. ez math to me.

sherburne, save your self wasted time, there's way to many hunters at Sherburne for me, every 80 yards, a good hunter can call ducks and h=get them to break and swing, but before you would have half a chance at shooting, there is always someone else popping sky high shots, it sux there.

A comment titled: Re: Trim problems in response to a report titled: Trim problems

start with length of shaft verses transom height. , sounds like a 25 inch shaft with 20 or 21 inch transom, also bay boats run much different than bass boat hulls. and 1 more thing, while boat on trailer, try putting engine in level position, check indicator, see if it shows medium, it just might be showing you a wrong reading.
