| Outdoor Board|| re: Duck season is drawing to a close - BLM on 1/23/15 at 12:47 pm|
Been pretty good for me considering I will only get to make about 18 hunts. I'm sitting at 64 thru 16 hunts right now. My best season in a while but that's mainly due to the fact that Ive hunted more this yr. I've hunted public and private....
| Outdoor Board|| re: LDWF changes to Biloxi Marsh Boat Motors - BLM on 1/22/15 at 8:24 pm|
Subsidence is the real issue at hand with the marsh degradation. Fact of the matter is that until our government gets its chit in gear with a gameplan nothing of any consequence is going to change. Just too large a problem. Seems to me that one day in the not so distant future we're going to end up...

Thx, I hadn't seen the mmt discussion. I'm not sure what banning surfaces drives but allowing lower HP long tails accomplishes. I do hate that there are so many ppl with mud motors that don't respect the land/marsh and just joyride all over the damn place. I'm sure quite a few places would benefit ...

What's the point of this? I hunted there 4-5 times this yr with my surface drive. Pretty cool area, that I guess I won't b able to hunt any more. That sucks. What about fishing...Will I not be able to chase reds out there any more? ...

Sold my old go-devil boat on LA Sportsman in a week. I can't figure out how to update the site that it's sold so I'm still getting emails from people that "have cash" and "really want the boat". Good luck. ...

We hear and see them flying nearly every fall/winter in Bunkie area. Don't recall ever seeing them on the ground though. Some big birds and very loud as you can hear them from a long ways off. ...

| Outdoor Board|| re: Late season hunting club shenanigans (pic on first post) - BLM on 1/3/15 at 12:23 pm|
I was in a pseudo duck club up in the north MS delta several years ago. Good hunting but that place got to be like a soap opera. Everybody talking about everybody else and the main lease broker always talking out if both sides if his far to try and keep bumping up rates. We finally got out when some...

It's got nothing to do with Les.
The combination of les' coaching debacles and my getting older with kids to raise has put some perspective on my LSU fandom. I'll be looking forward to next season as usual, but I won't get real excited again until there's a new coach on board. I like les but I'...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Looking for a surface drive after the season - BLM on 12/27/14 at 2:51 pm|
If you get a surface drive be sure to put it on a mud boat hull or it won't perform well. I think the best mud boat going right now is a prodigy. Check their face book out or their website. The owner is from south LA but resides and builds his boats in north GA. He has a center console mud boat with...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Few good hunt from opening weekend of 2nd split... - BLM on 12/23/14 at 3:36 pm|
Nice pics. I love shooting specs...gotta find a place where I can kill more of them. Heard a lot of them in the fog south of Gueydan yesterday.
Side story on the wanton waste topic (I know you stated you looked for your lost birds). Group of my GA buddies used to hunt around Jonesboro, AR. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: duck hunting: what does "call sparingly" mean? - BLM on 12/23/14 at 3:23 pm|
Also, what works one day may not work the next. Its all about reading the birds and that only comes with a lot of experience. You normally end up over calling or under calling the first few sets of birds. The key is to keep trying different combinations until you find the one that works. I've ha...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Type of duck that is highest on your hunting wish list - BLM on 12/22/14 at 9:31 pm|
Black duck for me. Had one working with a big pile of mallards several yrs ago up in north ms delta but couldn't get them to finish. Broke my heart. I've only seen a few of them.
2nd would be a cinnamon teal to go with my gw and bw. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: How has your duck season been so far? - BLM on 12/21/14 at 10:13 pm|
Watching birds from afar with binocs. Definitely need to mimick what the birds are doing in your area.
I've been on 10 trips or so and had mostly good hunts. The 2 lesser trips I've had this season was in the SE marsh and I had a buddy with his kid who couldn't wait till they turned on. Would h...

| Outdoor Board|| Truck Shop Recommendation - BLM on 12/15/14 at 5:37 pm|
Need a recommendation for a good shop around BR to take my '99 GMC K2500. I've neglected it for quite a while and need to take it in for a good once over. Needs tune up, replacement parts for multiple things that aren't working, possible level kit, etc. Using my Tahoe a lot for hunting/fishing ri...

It's the one from cabelas with the waterproof material on bottom and up the sides. Says it can go in 10" of water. Got a place to hunt it with less than 6". Will test this wknd and see what happens. It's the northern flight ultimate.
Won't be very comfortable shooting from that position but wil...
| Outdoor Board|| Layout Blinds - BLM on 12/12/14 at 11:58 am|
Anybody used the layout blinds with waterproof bottom in flooded ag fields? I bought one and planning to try it out this weekend. Going to try it on a levee but also want to try it out in the middle of a field as well. Will be my first time to hunt a layout. Just wondering what if there are any tr...
