Anyone hunt Acadiana Conservation Corridor WMA?
I here it's pretty much impossible to get to. You arn't allowed to park on side of the highway, and even if you are dropped off you can get ticketed. And then I here that it's dangerous to get there by boat because of logs and current.
I really think they should make a gravel road or something with a check station so people could actually hunt it. Even if you do go by boat it looks pretty much impossible to hunt the north part of it.
I'm just wondering because I go to college up north and every time I head back home for break I see deer along it. And today on my way home I saw a pig that was easily 300lbs. on the edge of the woods.

Does anyone know if there is hogs on the Kisatchie unit near Minden? I've hunted there and seen a good bit of deer but I was wondering if there is hogs. I maybe go squirrel hunt there next weekend. I don't think this is legal but jus checking, could I bring slugs for hogs (if there even is any) or would I have to shoot one with loads that would be used for squirrels? I 've seen people hunt hogs in the squirrel season on WMAs with .17 hmrs and .22mags and they use bullets that would blow up a squirrel and are obviously not for squirrel hunting, so I was just checking..thanks

If this is too off topic than I apologize and feel free to yank it.

There's a new hunting game being developed, and I am lucky enough to be a tester. All you have to do is give input on what you would like to be in the game and be active and eventually you can get selected to.
But that's not my purpose for this post and I don't want to sound like I'm advertising for it because I'm not. I just would like to see a lot more Louisiana hunters giving input for the development in the game so that they will hopefully make a Louisiana based area to hunt in the game. I've been trying to push Louisiana swamps and other areas to be added to the game but if I can get the help of other LA hunters, that are interested in playing hunting games ,then maybe it can be successful. LA all to often gets left out in hunting games (when we have some of the best and most diverse hunting!), so I'm hoping we can make an influence on this game!
You can check it out here

Also if you do join, In the location suggestion section you will see my post on South Louisiana that is where you can support my post and provide more pictures of the great hunting areas we have in this great state!
Thanks

Well I'm up in North La in Shreveport for school and I'm trying to see if there's any good places I could go with my Ultra light and catch some perch or sacalait or anything good to eat haha.. So if you know any good spots to fish from the bank in the shreveport-ish area then please share.. By the way I'm not looking to fish right now, just trying to get that figured out for after hunting season is closed and it starts to heat up a little. Thanks!

Well I've been told that on a WMA you can hunt pigs with whatever weapon is allowed for the inseason animal at the time. For example the other day while bowhunting on a WMA people where hunting hogs with .22 mags and .17 HMR's since those guns are legal gun to squirrel hunt with...So if you hunt a WMA with a Turkey Season and hogs, can you hog hunt with a bow during the turkey season..since a bow is legal to hunt turkey's with? Or is the hog hunting thing not allowed during the turkey season? I tried finding the answer to this on LDWF and could not come across it..Thanks

Never hunted there before and plan on possibly going tommorrow, but does anyone know if the bridge is still closed? Last info I can find is from nov. and says it's closed but it seems like it would be open now. If it is closed can you still access some parts by vehicle? Thanks im advanced.

Shot a nice 5pt. yesterday afternoon and I'd like to do a Euro mount. What's the best way to do it? I DO NOT want to boil and bleach it b/c all that does is damage it. I would like to do it quickly rather then having to wait on ants, but if that's the best way for me to do it w/o boiling then I'll do it. I also would maybe be interested in paying a Taxidermist to do it for me if the price isn't too bad, b/c it snot a trophy deer or anything I just thing it'd look nice.
So any of you taxidermist can give me tips or email me a price.. I'll try to get a pic up of him in a little bit, nothing spectacular but just a beautiful deer as they all are!

A year or two ago we stopped at the feed store and picked up some rice bran and corn. As we where buying the corn, I could here some guy going on to someone else about how we are stupid for buying corn. As we are loading up the feed he comes to us and told us that corn kills deer. His reasoning was that the corn had no nutritional value, just energy value and the deer eat to much get bloated and their stomach basically explodes. He claims that he raised a deer and fed it corn and this happened.

Anyone else hear or believe this?

I personally agree that corn does kill deer...when they come to eat it and get SMACKED!..haha

Is it any good? I never here anything about it and saw that its a a little closer to me than going to Bodcau or Loggy Bayou so it'd be easier for me to hunt there before class haha..Just curious I read up on it a little, but just looking for some further info..Thanks
Good luck to ya'll this season..

I'm a little late on this should have done it much earlier but,anyone got any suggestions of good wma/state/public land that I could bow hunt deer within 30 min-1hr or so from Shreveport. I know there's a couple places around here I just am clueless where they are..I guess I could also just look them up. But anyway, I'm up here for school, I was thinking I'd just hold off on hunting until breaks when I get to go home, but I'm use to hunting almost every weekend ,and I LOVE it that way.So I need a place to go up here..ha
Should have stayed in the south where I could hunt anytime I wanted..ha..
Thanks ya'll
God bless, and hope ya'll knock'em down this season

A comment titled: k in response to a report titled: ACC

k I was told that you could get ticketed for being dropped off.. Maybe that was because those people didn't check in.. I guess I'll just call them up before next season to make sure I do it right.Pirogue wouldn't be bad either, but saw somewhere else that the current in the bayou was bad and it was full of logs and hard to navigate.I really would like to hunt it at least a couple times, so I'm just figuring it out for next season!
Thanks

A comment titled: Good Job in response to a report titled: Awesome

I killed a der last year hunting a rub, and the deer looked just like yours..Weighed about the same too, but yours horns or a little thicker.. Nice deer, I'm pretty sure there's a bigger boy making those rubs, but there are pics of smaller deer working big rubs..A few where posted on this site a while back.
Gratz again

A comment titled: BALLISTOL in response to a report titled: Rifle scent

Get some ballistol!! Rem oil is good, but I cleaned my guns real good with Rem oil, and my uncles took some Ballistol and was still able to get rust off my gun that you couldn't even see! It's kind of hard to find, but the best oil I've ever used. It smells at first but after 20 mins you can't smell anything.

A comment titled: .. in response to a report titled: I'm beginning to wonder if deer feed attractants really work

You can't say they don't work because deer do go to them, and deer do killed killed while eating them. But they do not work as well as advertised. Big bucks rarely ever come to feed and if they do it is usually at night, but young bucks and does go to it often at the start of the season. Then they slack off. I thinks its just best to plant food plots and feed at a minimum, the less you feed the better it'll work when you do feed IMO.

And that is part of why I do all my processing myself! I know what's in the meat and i know that the meat I get is from the deer I killed.. All saves alot of money and you can season it just how you want it.

A comment titled: thanks guys in response to a report titled: Tryin to get LA in new Hunting Game

Best way to help out is just to sign up on there, give ideas and post pictures of you LA kills/hunting areas and just support any post I had put about South La.. The more we talk about South La the better chance it will catch on to the developers. The game isn't planned to fully come out for atleast another year..

A comment titled: .. in response to a report titled: its a shame

It's not just LA, it's the world man.. I myself am not old enough to remember the "good ole days" but when I talk to my dad, grandpa, uncles, etc. it make me wish things could still be the same as it was for them.

A comment titled: nice in response to a report titled: Calling all Deer Pros

nice rubs, but I doubt the middle one is a deer.. it's too tall..But I def agree on the other two being a deer, looks like a big one too but rub size can be misleading.

I ended up going and saw 2 200lbs.+ pigs on the way in, but nothing once I was set up...
Still trying to figure where I'm going for closing weekend of bow

A comment titled: .. in response to a report titled: Question..

thats why I was owndering..I think you can actually shoot hogs on some WMAs in spring squirrel and not others (if I'm correct)..So maybe you can...I'm not sure still trying to find out for sure.. I'm going to search the website and book hard when I get the chance..

A comment titled: dang in response to a report titled: Question..

kind of figured that'd be the case..but doesn't make sense if they want to get rid of them! I mean if your turkey hunting and just so happen to run up on some pigs..I guess all you can do is watch them! thanks

I have a summit viper and love it, but my uncle recently got a millenium, and that is the most comfortable stand I've ever sat in..

and on a side note..WHO DAT!

A comment titled: awesome in response to a report titled: 6-point doe killed

That's pretty cool, but I was always told that when that happened they would be always in velvet because they lack the instinct to rub? And that they don't shed the antlers so they have continous growth like a cactus buck would... I guessing this doesn't always apply then.

A comment titled: hmm in response to a report titled: what do yall think

I see where you are coming from but dang personally I wish I was year younger to be able to apply for this! haha I'm in North LA now for college, and going to give turkey hunting a shot this spring but I'm clueless..
In your case though it seems thta you do have some turkey knowledge so I understand your point, but think about it as just improving your daughters chances.. You can still take her just you and her once the season gets started up.
