Has anyone done this before? I've never hunted woodcock and never hunted a WMA. I was thinking about going because I have a good GSP that I would enjoy seeing work woodcock. I have no idea how to hunt them, if they are any good to eat, etc. I spoke to another GSP owner from MI who hunts them in ...

With the regular season over - how did Les's boys handle the season in your opinion, based on how you thought they would do before it started?
They met my expectations. I thought a 9-3 year was what we had coming. I knew the road schedule would be tough. I thought the defense would have a tou...

| O-T Lounge|| What's up with the Baker area camera speeding enforcement? - Debaser on 7/1/13 at 4:16 pm|
My dog is "enrolled" in summer school and when I drove through the shitty hamlet of Baker to pay a training visit, I evidently was speeding and received a citation in the fricking mail from some speeding camera operation in Arizona. I guess it is legit, because they had my picture correct, but I was...

He is a Freshman and will be living at the Cottages. I was at LSU 1987-1990, which is evidently the the dark ages. I lived at Sharlo townhomes and in the fraternity house (which was condemned when I was living in it), including a brief one semester stint on GSRI (eesh).
LSU did not have any "t...
