Age: 64 at end of month
Raised in a farming community south of Alexandria LA.
Had a BB gun at age 6 for birds and a 20 gauge at 10 for squirrels, rabbits, and doves. No deer until I reached high school. My Dad started me early hunting and fishing but like all country boys we also learned on our...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Tropical storm Karen, did she ruin your weekend? - BayouTiger71 on 10/6/13 at 4:46 pm|
I left early Thursday morning for a north LA squirrel hunting/bow hunting trip. As of late Thursday night, Karen was projected to be a hurricane off the coast and the tract was steadily moving westward, so I left early Friday morning with my camper to return to Lafourche Parish. By the time I arri...
| Outdoor Board|| re: How often does your SO hunt/fish with you? - BayouTiger71 on 10/6/13 at 4:35 pm|
This. Of course, I am joking. My wife has fished with me, but never hunted. Since we are now both retired, she now wants to come in a deer stand with me, but does not want me to shoot anything. The problem I have is that I do not know how we can accommodate both the morkie and Mexican dog in the...

Young man, not all senior LSU fans are ignorant. I tried to connect with my IPAD and my provider (AT&T) doesn't have an agreement for ESPN3 nor did my PC account with Vision Communications.
I graduated with honors from LSU for both my BS and MS degrees almost 40 years and I have hired numerous...

Wolves do not occur this far south, but coyotes do and the animal could have been a hybrid cross between a coyote and a large domesticated dog. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: My dog makes me feel like a good person. - BayouTiger71 on 1/12/13 at 6:32 pm|
I am so ashamed that I am attached to my wife's spoiled rotten chihuaha and morkie; they insist on sitting on my lap every night and I try to resist, but they beg and whine.
As an aside, several years ago my wife were driving in the Bywater area of New Orleans and I commented on two men walking...

| Outdoor Board|| re: Duck hunters vs. Fishermen debate - BayouTiger71 on 11/19/12 at 5:30 pm|
I have many years experience fishing the marsh before, during, and after duck season. I also duck hunted for many years. A reasonable and responsible fisherman will avoid duck hunters whether it is public or private waters. However, I would love to have duck hunters respect me when I am fishing. ...

My three dogs include a cocker spaniel, morkie, and chihuahua. Yes, I am married to a wonderful woman who loves dogs. BTW, do not get the wrong impression because I am known as MrPredator on the LA Sportsman web site.
| Outdoor Board|| re: 35 wheelen vs 4 44 - BayouTiger71 on 10/30/12 at 5:23 pm|
You are right. You do not notice recoil when you shoot at game, but remember what it feels like when you shoot targets at a rifle range. Of course, I am a wimp and use a Caldwell lead sled for target sighting. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: 35 wheelen vs 4 44 - BayouTiger71 on 10/30/12 at 5:10 pm|
According to published stats, the .35 Whelen has considerably more kick in ft-lbs. than the .444 Marlin. The Whelen is more powerful and more flat shooting.
I have a .444 and use the Hornady Leverevolution ammo, which works great. It groups well and has good terminal ballistics.
To reduce r...

Did not hunt today because I killed a 6-pt buck yesterday afternoon along the Intracoastal Waterway in Bourg; I was camping out and I celebrated last night.
Brought my guest to a stand this morning and and then cleaned up around the camper and camp site.
My deer hunting is now a lower prio...
| Outdoor Board|| re: What kind of rifle do you shoot? - BayouTiger71 on 11/4/11 at 7:48 pm|
I shoot left-handed because I am left eye dominant but use a right-handed model bolt action because I am spastic with my left arm and hand.
Shouldn't ever need a second shot anyway. LOL...

The best rifle/scope/ammo this 60+ year old has ever owned -- a 270 Ruger M77 stainless steel with hogue stock with a trigger job / Burris Euro Diamond 2.5-10 scope / Federal Premium ammo with 110 g Barnes TSX bullets. I keep my Browning auto .270 and Tikka .243 in the gun closet.

Did not go to the camp, but spent most of the day clearing walkin trails and planting personal food plots in the Lafourche Parish swamps along the Intracoastal Waterway. The site is accessed only by water and then by walking. Planted mustard greens and five lbs. of iron clay peas. The ground was ve...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Possible Fish Kill? - BayouTiger71 on 9/4/11 at 8:24 pm|
Immediately after a tidal surge and as the waterws recede, the fishing in the marsh is generally great because of specks that are brought in and of red drum that feed on forage. Later, expect some fish kills in the uppper estaries and freshwater areas as "degraded, low-oxygenated water" from swamps...
