Went and scouted the pool this afternoon, the water is down. Hopefully we get some rain in the near future, so all boats can fish. Not even sure if u can pick up ur boats @ all launches. Will see.
There is a new gun shop open in Lake Charles. It's called Freedom Firearms. It's located just south of I-210 on Ryan Street. It's on the East side of the road across the street from Pumpelly's Tire and just south of the big Whitney bank. This place is really cool. They have pistols, rifles, shotguns, tactical weapons, home defense weapons and ammo and knives. The owner is always there and they seem to be the most knowing people I have talked to about guns. They specialize in hard to find weapons, they really can get you anything. They also buy and sell used weapons too I think. Go check them out. Good people.
Does anybody out there have any information on what the deer hunting is like at Sabine Island WMA. With gas hitting $4 a gallon, I'm looking for places closer to home. I've never heard anything about this place so anything you could tell me I'd appreciate.
I just got this link, I think it is the latest and greatest news on what our ducks are doing up North. I hope we get some good weather this year to push them down. I hope a liberal doesn't get voted into office! CUT EM ALL BOYS!
Hey boys, how is everybody doing? I know I am pumped up about duck season. Before you know it we'll be swatting skeeters and blasting some blue wings. Shortly after that it'll be on with the big ducks. Reports look decent for us and I think we'll have another good year. I can't wait to start brushing blinds and running the marsh before light. The trusty 870 is ready, as always, the dog is another year older, but there are some more great memories to be made before either of them retire. All that stands in the way of all of us and the opener is some fine fishing and a few deer to be taken with the old stick and string. It's going to be another great year, because we are in America and we'll be throwing steel out of the old scatter guns. Good luck to all. I CAN'T WAIT!
Hey boys. I'm stationed up in North Carolina right now, and in early November my 5 years in the USMC will be up and I'll be back in Lake Charles, LA. I can't wait. It'll be my first full hunting season in 5 years. I'm pumped up. I gotta keep my shooting skills, so I shoot my fishing bow all the time. Those suckers put up a good fight after you stick em. Shooting them is the easy part, getting them into the boat is the challenge. I got that softshell turtle in Japan when I was stationed there. Got the turtle shooting fingers with a recurve but I normally shoot a compound with a realease for fish and deer/hogs. I love taking anything I can with a bow. Take it easy and enjoy the pics. I'm on the far right with the LSU visor on holding the bow. --COONASS
I just want to know everybody's opinion on the best 4 wheeler out there. I know this is a touchy subject, but who makes the best bike in your eyes? I ride a 2007 Honda Foreman, 4x4, manual shift, and have a set of 26 inch Maxxis Zilla tires. To me, the bike can't be beat. I can get through anything, it's very dependable, extremley strong, and comfortable. I think Honda makes the best bike out there. What do you think? The worst in my eyes is Arctic Cat. Just my opinion.
Has there been a crowd at Sabine on Wednesday's? I know there have been decent numbers of people on the weekends, just wondering if anybody is showing up during the week. Been killing any birds out there? It's been good for me and my family in Bell City.
I was wondering when the rut will kick off in Red River/Three Rivers WMA area? I can't tell what's going on.
I was able to get this hog at home on leave in June before deploying to Iraq. I'm out here right now. I have been in the Marine Corps for 4 years, and this is going to be the first hunting season I have missed. I know my brothers will keep me posted, but I'm think I'm going to have withdraws. I am usually in the blind or in the stand almost everyday, but not this year. Shed some blood for me guys and make some good memories too, I certainly wish I could be out there with ya'll doing it.
This is a couple of reasons I hunt in Louisiana. Besides the obvious that I am from Louisiana and was raised here. There is great success to be had out there if you just do your homework.
Just wondering if any ducks are being killed in the Bell City Homewood area. I've been stationed overseas for 2 years and I'll be home around Christmas and I'm ready to hunt. Our farm is off the Bell City ditch. Any comments appreciated.
Great reports of where we hunt in Homewood. Lots of ducks. Limited out in 14 minutes opening day and not too much longer on Sunday. All good birds, mallards, pintail, and both greenwing and bluewing teal. We passed on the spoonies, but of course they were there too. Anybody hunting in the Homewood/Bell City area have any luck. I own the land I hunt on, and wanted to know if the neighbors had the same luck. I live on the Calcaseiu River and like to hunt woodies there in the afternoon, it looks like they are in abundance too. Hoping for a great season. Good luck to all.
