I am 45 - married - live in West Monroe off of D'Arbonne Bayou. I am an avid duck / turkey hunter and a freelance writer / photographer. Very well published both nationally and regionally - always looking to make new friends and find new places to shoot images of hunting and outdoor activities.
Deer hunted for years (bow hunting) around Harrisonburg (Rawson Creek) but it got in the way of my bird hunting so I had to give it up.

I spent 22 years in construction management - got my daughter out of school and decided to follow my passion of making images and with my hunting background it has now turned into wildlife and nature subjects - I do product / promotional photography for many outdoor companies as well as working with many non profit organizations such as the National MS Foundation as I believe giving back to others less fortunate than myself always pays back in some shape form or fashion - and I just like helping others...

Any Louisiana guys that want some nice top quality images of their hunts contact me for samples - many times I do it at no charge just to get stock images for my work...

New to this forum..........like it

Postby chasu » Wed Jan 10, 2007 10:28 pm

41 years old.....I've been duck hunting for 25 years. I gave up my lease :pissed: before renewal in March 2006 due to the lack of ducks and frustration of not having ducks for the last 4 years. Worst move ever made as long as I've been hunting. I leased land between the Atchafalaya River and Wax Lake Outlet below Berwick. I'm from Morgan City, but reside in Berwick.

Hunting buddy is Chasu, my 7 year old Chocolate Lab. His name is Chaseur d' Canard which means duck hunter in Cajun French. :salude:

I'll have Lucas, my son, in the blind before long, maybe next year. :thumbsup:

Glad to be part of Duck Hunting Chat Forum. :yes:

I am 45 yrs. old with 39 years of duckhunting in my blood. Was six when my father first took me along. Have seen everything from paper hull shells and lead shot to all that you see today. It was brown canvas coats back then, with noninsulated hip boots. Call Cameron and Calcasieu parish my stomping grounds. Hunt mostly around Thornwell,LA for geese and all over Cameron for ducks. Having great luck in the Choupique road area. If there is one thing that I have learned after all of these years, it is this, movement is your worst enemy. All the camo and face paint in the world is useless if your moving around. Master a combo wigeon/pintail whistle and leave the highball calls for the calling contest.

i have been reading these messages and i sort of feel i should change my user name to "Grandpa". I`m 59 years old. like most of you fella i really was into hunting in my teens and twentys. then came the responsibilities of raising and supporting a family and building a business and there never seemed to be any time to hunt. about 4 years ago with the family raised, the business on solid footing, and a little more time i got back into waterfowling . after 30 years it`s like a rediscovery process, and a helava lot of fun. and what is even better my youngest son just recently got out of the service and is not only working with me but loves the hunting as much as i do. all in all, Grandpa isn`t so bad! :thumbsup:
hunt `em like they owe you money

Sup LA hunters?I'm new to this site, and pretty new to duck hunting.
I was born and raised in Bossier City and have always loved deer hunting and any other kind of louisiana hunting or fishin you could think of. It wasn't until my last year in college that I was introduced to the world of duck hunting. I went to college at Southern Arkansas on a baseball scholarship. After my eligibility was up i still had another year before i could graduate. No longer playin college ball frees up alot of time! My buddy who's eligibility was also up, is a hardcore duck hunter and took me along on an opening day teal hunt at Lake Columbia.

When the first group of teal came in at what seemed like 100 mph dancing with cupped wings and sounding like fighter plane, I was INSTANTLY hooked!! Needless to say it didn't take long for me to realize that I absolutely LOVE to duck hunt. I went along with him and few of my other buddies nearly every morning the rest of teal and duck season. It's a wonder i didn't fail my classes...haha Anyway, we hunted the Red river north of Garland, AR and did pretty good all year. Not sure where all i'll hunt this year as far as in louisiana but i know i'll be doin some huntin in Arkansas as well. Wherever the ducks are, right.
I got my degree in exercise science and landed a job as an exercise specialist/personal trainer which has been pretty cool. The pay isn't exceptional, but i do get to pick most of the hours i work, which is going to be a big plus during duck season!!!!I'll get to hunt every morning of the week. Can't beat that with a stick, huh.

I'm 37 and have been out of the "game" for a while and man do I miss it. I was and avid Dove-Duck-Deer Hunter/bass fisherman until about 1998, when my son was born. :biggrin: My daughter soon followed in 2001. :biggrin: My son is now at the age where I need to get him hooked. I laid my faithful Choc. Lab down last year, she was 13yrs and my favorite hunting buddy :sad: . When I did duck hunt, it was in the marshes around Grand Lake/White Lake area south of Lake Arthur on some Miami Corp. land. Man that was some of the best hunting ever. :yes: Now I just need to find a lease to hunt, preferably a flooded rice field w/a sunken 3-4 man blind. I'd like something w/in a couple hrs. driving from Lafayette. The hunt is on... :thumbsup:

Hello..New to the site and wanted to introduce myself.

I have lived in BR since 77. Originally a Yankee from up in Wis. but this is home now. Belong to a club near Jennings. 15 of us lease 2000 acres of rice fields and have 18 blinds. 6 or 7 are flooded and the others are mud fields for geese. Had a great teal season with 156 birds. Had limits everyday for the first 3 days with 8, 8 and 6 hunters. The club is the "Hardcore Hunting Club" and we hope to be hardcore again this year now that our 1800 sq. ft. lodge is done. Yeah, we are roughing it! Some of you may have seen us last year on Don Dubuc or Paradise Louisiana.

I'm 48, divorced and spend as much time outdoors as I can. Love to saltwater fish and chase those birds.

I'm a freelance photographer/video production and my biggest client is ESPN. Do most of the feature stories on LSU and Saints for ESPN, NFL Network and CBS Sports.

Looking forward to a great season. Have already seen lots of ducks and a few geese on the lease. Will only get better as this cool weather continues.

Be safe and happy hunting!
