Had to call it early but we were only one short of our 3 man limit

Looking to go sac fishing for the first time. Not looking for a honey hole but just a place to catch a fish. 13 foot Boston whaler will get me nearlyanywhere. Any help is appreciated!

I read somewhere about how in the good ol days hunters would make wood duck whistles out of spent shotgun shells. Would anyone know how to make one? Thanks

I'd really like to get into spearfishing catfish. I live 3 minutes away from Manchac and Ponchartrain so that is where I'd have to begin. Any tips to how to get started or any catfish holes I could go spear some fish out of? Thanks!

I would like to build a pirogue with my younger brother. Does anyone know of any good pirogue plans? I'd like to build one that has decent stability and used for hunting. Thanks for any info!

This is the first year that I'm going to be hunting on a WMA. Soo Manchac is my only choice since I could walk because it's so close. What Kind of game is located there? I've shot quite a few deer but I'd like to try at some hogs. Is Maurepaus overran with hogs or is there any hogs at all? Thanks for the info!

Anyone catching bream or bass in Lac Des Allemands?
Thanks!

I have a 14' x 40' jon boat with the max engine being a 15hp. What size Go-Devil would be best on my rig? 6.5hp? 9hp? or 13hp?

My uncle gave me permission to use his Ski Nautique this summer but I'm not too sure if my truck can tow it. I have a 99 Mazda B3000 (3.0 liter for those whom don't know) Troy Lee Edition 4x2 truck with a standard tranny. The boat weighs about 2500lbs loaded. Would this load be too much for my truck to tow? Thanks!

I'm curious to know what is the all-time most comfortable tree stand out there. I want a stand that I can stay in all day without it giving me aches or pains so I won't have to move to adjust myself so that big boy won't notice me. Any info is greatly appreciated.

March 17, 2011 at 2:31am

I am pondering on whether or not to get a depth finder. What is the point of them? Thanks!

I have a 14'
fiberglass pirogue that is in desperate need of repairs. The fiberglass is thin in several spots. There are cracks in a few places. I recieved the pirogue like that. How much would it cost to refiberglass the entire thing? Or would it cost more to redo it than buy a new one?

It all began at the camp, one of the members asked me if I wanted to go to a stand that had only been hunted once this year and he would be on the stand down the road from me. I agreed to go on the stand. So we got dress and left the camp at 2:30. As we pulled up into the field he dropped me in from the golf cart in front of the ground blind and told me where the deer enter the field from. After he left I got situated into the ground blind, loaded my rifle, and began to play the waiting game. Exactly 2 minutes from getting into the stand a torn up 5 Point entered the field. Not very long after I saw something follow him. The Buck entered the field and began to eat. I watched him closely trying see how big he was. As soon I as realized that he was 8 point I peered through my rifle scope waiting for the perfect broad side shot. Once he was angled right I lined up the cross hairs, took off the safety, and squeezed the trigger. KA-POW! The buck gave a slight kick. He than ran into the woods and I heard a CRASH. I sent a text message to the guy down the road from me (Phil) saying that I shot my first buck. He then called and congradulated me and told me to wait 40 minutes before I was to go search for blood. I was so exicted and nervous that I could barely breathe. I waited close to 40 minutes. (It felt like forever)and began my search for my first buck. I searched for blood where I shot and where he ran into the woods, I found not a single drop. Then out of the blue comes Dr. Phil in the golf cart to help me search. After realizing that there was no blood we began to do a grid search in the woods. After walking 40 yards in I hear 'Oh Evan...' As I turned my head to see where Dr. Phil was, I saw him, dead on the ground. I hurried to the buck and Dr. Phil gave me a hug. We were both shaking with excitement! After closer investigation the bullet went in, but didn't come out! That's when I realized that the .243 doesn't have enough power. It looks like it's time for an upgrade! Hehehe. I called my uncle at the camp and told him I had killed an 8point. He was all amped up! Dr. Phil and I then pulled the buck to the edge of the field and headed back to camp. At 6:00 my uncle, myself, and my friend Hayden went pick him up and brought him to the camp for everyone to see. Hugs, handshakes, and congradulations came from everyone. I ate dinner and brought the buck down to the skinning shed and capped him out and got all that delicious meat off. Looks like I'll be making some sausage!

My Uncle was kind enough to give me his 12' pirogue and pushpole. I attempted to use the pushpole but I had no idea what i was supposed to do and the pirouge was waving everywhere in the water. I seem to have some issues with balance. Can someone give me some advice? Thanks!

October 05, 2010 at 8:22pm

a few years ago I was duck hunting in lake salvador with my future brother-in-law and someone was deer hunting a couple hundred yards away in a 'pole stand'. It was a single pole with three cables coming down to stabalize it. Any idea where I could get one? or build one?

Has anyone ever had any luck turkey hunting in Marepaus WMA or Manchac? I thought about going give it a try if it there is any back there. Thanks and God Bless

February 25, 2010 at 11:27pm

I want to start turkey hunting and I just wanted to know what type of equipment to use. and what to do to my shotgun. I have a Remington 870 Super Mag with Walnut Stock. Also I have a black synthetic stock for it. Thanks for any information and God bless.

February 24, 2010 at 4:22pm

I'll be heading to Grand Isle in April. Any bait or lures anyone care to share for some specks and red's? Thanks and God Bless

I don't see what all the fuss is about. It is a good thing that it's a LAA now considering that the Go-Devils made a ton of noise. And also, atleast the yahoos wont be running there motors all morning long now. Going be to a good season! And a little paddling never hurt anyone

You cant go wrong with an ol man. I love mine. The climb really easy, only fault is that you may want to choose a large tree with a bigger trunk because the smaller the tree the tighter you fit. I wouldnt use any other climber. Out of the three I have I like this one much much more. Quite Possibly the best climber out there in my opinion

I have one rifle. A Remington 700 .243, I use 100 grain and it does the job just fine. I have never shot a deer 75+ yards away. So I can't answer that one. Amazing deer rifle

A comment titled: Well. in response to a report titled: Lake Des Allemands

I have never hunted there. Would I have a better chance getting one in the marsh or in the hardwoods? Also is it to late to scout? I don't want to get any other hunters angry.
