re: Golden eye.. mount it? - CharleyLake on 1/8/17 at 8:09 pm
I would take it to the taxidermist. I shot one north of the Cameron Parish Court House about 25 years ago. The blind got two hens of five or six that decoyed. I have never seen a Goldeneye since then. Back then I did hobby taxidermy work and had a species collection but I only kept the "Copperhea...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anchoring duck decoys - CharleyLake on 12/22/16 at 3:06 pm
Putting out three of them stategically each hunt is time-consuming enough but this guy does have the lease and calls the shots. The third hunter and I bought him some Flocka Flickers for Christmas so I am sure that they will go out tomorrow. All of us are old and blessed that we can still hunt a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Anchoring duck decoys - CharleyLake on 12/22/16 at 2:30 pm
Each decoy was jammed in the mud with a notched broomstick. We sure thought the weight was sufficient. Evidently not. The owner of the decoys wants to secure them to a "common line" but I think that they would tangle or bunch. Appreciate the ideas. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Anchoring duck decoys - CharleyLake on 12/22/16 at 2:05 pm
Recovered about 40 of 75 decoys from rig in the marsh from last Sunday's brisk wind. We thought the weights were well anchored in mud. Level of the water is about three feet. Appreciate suggestions for better securing the spread....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (10)

You are correct. It was Cousin Victor. Mike Archer was widely quoted "I believe him." I have always wondered if Coach Archer believed that it be factually correct or believed that Victor said that. Still hilarious....

Interesting that I share your philosophy and did what you are doing. I had a little radio for the Tiger games. My operations work was going to be interrupted by the draft so I hung up the blue jeans and joined the Marines. GI bill to McNeese and on to work as an offshore mud engineer for a short tim...

re: Who remembers the point system for ducks? - CharleyLake on 10/13/16 at 5:42 am
I went inaugral point day on a (my first) guided hunt in Cameron Parish at the Hoffpauir camp near the Gibbstown Bridge. I think that the point system started in 1976. I left the regs and a Louisiana Conservationist Magazine with great photos back at the camp. Scaups(do gris) were 10 points but ring...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Remington 1100 and steel shot ? - CharleyLake on 10/2/16 at 6:52 am
I bought my 1100 in 1971. I thought it to be reliable because I previously used a Model 12 20 guage. Last season was the first time that I duck hunted in several years. I simply did not have the range of the other hunters and did not attempt pass shots. The folks at Gator Guns in Sulphur, LA told me...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

After hunting in the Johnson Bayou area for several seasons my cousin picked up a CPSB five-year lease last year for a parcel in Grand Chenier south of the highway. I know he paid a handsome price. Teal season and the first split were productive but it held too much water at the end of the season to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The easement is defined as the width of the pipe and a thirty foot of temporary work space was granted. The diameter...

sneakytiger,rodnreeel, Thank you very much for your guidance. The link was very informative. Yesterday my tax prepared told me that Louisiana is an eminent domain state but the product in the pipeline may not qualify it for being a common carrier. He did give me a name of a client from Sulphur wh...
