Here's an easy 'how to' video for folks that can only trap hogs on weekends. The video describes an easy way to keep daily amounts of food in a hog trap allowing hogs to gain comfort entering and exiting a trap with a door locked open. Then when the time is right it explains the engaging of the trigger and catching the less trap aware hogs at ones convenience.

Had a great dive yesterday out of Port Fourchon, LA. Clearwater was in close and the seas started the day calm. We got a few nice Amberjack on the boat.
FINALLY the weather this past weekend was wonderful. With the calm winds and the seas flattened out we were afforded a great Saturday on the water spearfishing out of Venice, LA. Temps were right around 85 degrees with visibility far and currents easy. My buddies and I hit the rigs taking some AJ, Mangrove, Barracuda and Trigger Fish. Enjoy and thanks for watching!
Did okay the weekend after Thanksgiving in Belle City, LA taking 9 geese and 5 ducks...
I competed in the Louisiana Council of Underwater Dive Clubs (LCUDC) Annual Spearfishing Rodeo this past weekend. Waters were murky out to 35 miles. Check out this video of me shooting a not so big Amberjack and my buddy Walter miraculously untangling an AJ from a rope and beating me back to the boat. Keep watching, there is a huge Tuna weighed at the end. Thanks LCUDC for a putting on a safe and fun event! For BT...
We had a great spearfishing dive yesterday with Big C., Papa Smurf and THE HAMMER. The seas were flat and we had no wind but with strong currents and dirty water on some rigs we still managed to take some nice fish.

I was very lucky to have seen and filmed this Black Bear while hunting in Tensas NWR during the Lottery Hunt this past weekend. This bear came out of the woods about 75 yards away then moved toward me. He then realized something was up and moved to my left easing away.
