re: Private vs public water in tidal navigable waterways - byutgr
What Alex and Mung, who are both lawyers I believe, simply point out is what has been the law in Louisiana for over 200 years. You don't have to like it, but it is the law, and very well settled law. If you don't like it, take it to the legislature, but good luck with trying to divest individuals a...

re: Shooting a deer with .223 - byutgr
I helped a friend pick up a 130 lb. doe that he had shot with a 22/250. Shot her in the usual area behind the shoulder, lung shot. Very small entry wound, no exit, very little blood. She only traveled about 30 yards or so and expired. Don't know what round he was using or how those ballistics compar...

Gunsmith Recommendation - byutgr
I need a gunsmith to work on a Mauser Hsc 7.65 caliber pistol. Any recommendations for one in the Baton Rouge or New Orleans area? I believe that the problem is probably the firing pin, as the hammer cocks and the pistol dry fires either single or double action, but the pistol does not fire when a r...

re: Question for active CCA members - byutgr
Mung has hit the nail right squarely on the head. That is the issue, and although stated as a question, he has given the answer. If the State did just what Barf and others want, and declare those properties "public" then, in effect, it would be a taking without compensating the landowner to the "ful...

re: Question for active CCA members - byutgr
It is true that in South Louisiana, many times in the marsh you are trespassing on private property and don't even know it. In many instances, the landowners have not gated the area or hired an individual to patrol their land to run off trespassers, but just because you can float a boat on it does ...

re: Question for active CCA members - byutgr
I have belonged to the CCA, and the GCCA, for 30 years, and was on the State Board of the GCCA during the game fish fights. Without that organization, trout and redfish would have been decimated by the gillnetters. You can thank them for the resource that we have today. Secondly, it is not the CC...

re: Red Snapper Public Meeting Highlights - byutgr
I believe that the real power behind the commercial fishermen, and the group that is funding the push to keep management with the Feds, is the restaurant lobby. I really don't think that the commercial fishermen, on their own, could get that much clout. That is who we fought to get game fish status ...

re: Ruger SR1911 - byutgr
I have one also, and love it. The only issue has been that the front site broke off shortly after I bought it. I think that was an issue on the SR 1911 when they first came out. Other than that, love the pistol....

re: Police shootings bring attention to Louisiana's 'open carry' - byutgr
I certainly would not like to impose limits on open carry, as I will be the first to open carry after a hurricane and did so in the past after Katrina. However, I just don't see the point in walking around town with a pistol in open view (I have my CCL, not that big of a deal) or, especially an AR....

re: A fish story to remember - byutgr
There are whales in the Gulf. Killer whales and sperm whales have been sighted, as well as pilot whales. I seem to recall a story of pilot whales beaching themselves on Grand Isle sometime in the 1950's, but I don't know if true or not. I do remember a few whales doing a line dance at the Tarpon Lou...

re: Steel cases in a glock? - byutgr
I put a Wolf stainless steel barrel in my G19 in order to shoot reloads. I was advised not to shoot reloads in the stock barrel by folks who know a hell of a lot more about that than I do, so I heeded their advice. Plus, the Wolf barrel looks sharp on the Glock....

re: Running Trotlines - byutgr
My secretary's husband uses large cans. Cuts hole in top, drills holes in bottom and hangs them from trot lines. No bait. Catfish go in to lay, do not come out. Raises cans, catches plenty of catfish. I had never heard of this before, but sure works. ...

re: What is your definition of Rat Red? - byutgr
Put white trout in a slush of ice and salt water prior to cleaning. They firm up and are easy to clean then. By the way, if you freeze white trout filets, if you do not try to force thaw them, but just let them thaw over time, they are fine. Regarding rat reds, back in the day before size limits, w...

Fish, do you know that ole boy who owns the property on the New Roass side of the golf course? My brother in law, and one of the best men you will ever meet. If you don't know him, go on by his place and tell him that his brother in law from Thibodaux sent you. I have a feeling that you two will get...
