I was woundering if any of you good ole country boys ever go frog gigging? I took my son (6yrs old) but he made to much noise walking around the pond to get on any big frogs. I did let him try on 2 smaller frogs that we were able to get up on ,but he missed. Nothing like fresh fried frog legs.
Yes, it is done @ night with a spot light. I have actually hunted frogs 1 time with a bow. It was all fun untill I jumped on the log to get a shot @ this big frog & part of the log started moving. The part of the log that was moving was the biggest Copperhead snake I have ever seen. I ran the other way & just about knocked my hunting partner in the water. :laughing: For some reason I have never tried it again.

no respectable Bullfrog can resist a hullapopper
I grew up in Angles Camp, California Home of the jumping frog.
Our HS mascot is the Bullfrog. we had a big cook out every year, right after the frog jump. The "jumping frog jubilee" always a great time.
You can also tie a piece of red fabric to a hook and dangle it in front of them and they will eat it up, plastic worms work well too. Used to be stationed at Camp Pendleton and there is a little pond on base that you couldn't fish after dark so right around dark I would use a plastic worm and slaughter the frogs before I had to vamoose.
If you hunt WITH your kids now you won't hunt FOR your kids tomorrow.

Aint nothin like doin it Cajun style! Just to give you guys that walk a little hint bring a small battery operated am\fm radio with you and set it on a station that has nothin but static. Don't ask me why it works but it does. The noise will let you get really close to the frogs.
Good night would be 75 or so. One night we'll get a two dozen and the next 12 dozen. All depends on if they're out or not. Cant have any kind of gun in boat while froggin here in louisiana though, so no shooting snakes. Hard hat lights and swinging hands are the way to go.....gotta say I dont think Id enjoy gigging them or shooting them quite as much!
