| Outdoor Board|| OB Book Club: Last Days of Last Island - TheGreat318 on 5/30/13 at 11:44 am|
Just finished this book about the Hurricane that wiped out Isle Derniere back in 1856. Best I can tell, this island used to be a few miles west of Grand Isle. Now it looks like its busted up into a few much smaller spits. It is a really great account of life on the Louisiana Coast back then, and gi...
| Outdoor Board|| Building Forts...Classic Childhood Pastime - TheGreat318 on 4/25/13 at 7:44 am|
The "Backyards are overrated" thread over on the OT got me thinking...do kids still go out in the backyard/woods and build forts?
I never had a Nintendo, Sega, whathaveyou, but I built the hell out of some forts in the woods. Some of them I'm convinced could have withstood a mortar attack. I ...
| Outdoor Board|| Cutting out early on Fridays to hunt/fish...does the OB have to take vacation? - TheGreat318 on 2/22/13 at 6:16 pm|
I recently asked a buddy to cut out of work early with me on a Friday so we could head up to the camp early. He said he would like to, that work was slow, but he didn't want to take the vacation time. I'll be the first to admit that I shouldn't have been as shocked as I was, but we we're talking a...
| Outdoor Board|| Maybe an off year for ducks? - TheGreat318 on 1/3/13 at 5:20 pm|
I've been hearing lousy reports from around the state from places that tend to produce ducks year in and year out.
We had a phenomenal first split, but its been downright lousy since then. I've hunted every single front and plenty of days between during the second split and we just aren't seeing...
| Outdoor Board|| Fishing in South America - TheGreat318 on 8/28/12 at 9:26 am|
Traveling down the amazon and some of the tributaries. Obviously, the first thing that comes to mind are Peacock Bass, but I think it'd be pretty cool to catch a piranha.
This is not a "fishing trip" in the strictest sense of the word, but I will have a boat with an outboard that we'll pull beh...
| Food and Drink Board|| Cooking Jambalaya for about 80 - TheGreat318 on 5/30/12 at 2:15 pm|
So, I made the casual offer to cook jambalaya for about 80 people this coming weekend. Had absolutely ZERO intention of having them take me up on it.
Short of buying a crap ton of Zatarains, anybody have a good efficient method of cooking this much for this many? Planning on using my crawfish co...

| Outdoor Board|| Venice/Empire Fishing Lodges? - TheGreat318 on 4/22/12 at 3:08 pm|
Trying to decide between two days in Empire with Ryan Lambert's operation with Cajun Fishing Adventures OR two days at Saltgrass. Trip is in late May. Anybody taken any trips with these outfits? Other recommendations?...
| Help Board|| Removing my own post - TheGreat318 on 4/6/12 at 9:28 pm|
Can someone enlighten me on how to remove a post that I posted in error or without the best information? Seems like a better idea than having inciting a TD meltdown.
Thanks for any assistance....
| Outdoor Board|| Yard Quail? Will they make it? - TheGreat318 on 4/6/12 at 9:18 pm|
So, we've got about 10 acres in North Louisiana around our house. We've got tons of landscaped flower beds, azaleas, hollys, shrubs, etc and plenty of natural cover around the perimeter of the property. We dont have cats (wild or domestic) and a few small pups, but nothing I'd call a predator. I'...
| Outdoor Board|| Won the lottery, building stocked ponds at my plantation - TheGreat318 on 4/4/12 at 9:11 am|
At least this is what I had every intention of doing by Wednesday of this week. Turns out, you actually have to match most or all of the numbers on your ticket to win the lottery. Not sure if thats a state law or what, but they wouldnt budge on it.
Anywho, if you were to build medium sized(mayb...
