Bayou review has sucked for the last four or so years. Either no water or no ducks. I think the old ducks are gone and new ones don't know it exists.

Guess I'll just have to do some scouting. I might end up hunting the black river if there's no water at the bayou.

It hasn't been sold (or at least not insofar as I know). The proprietor simply changed tenants. While it is possible that the farm sold, and I've heard numerous rumors, the owners assured me that it has not, at least as of right now.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.

I farm some of their ground. If a sale finalizes, I'll hear about it.

I will be at an undisclosed location at an undisclosed WMA.
Will take pictures of a WMA sign and post it but...it will be the wrong one.
Will lie and send the e-scouters somewhere else.
Hopefully everyone goes far away.
Cman asked me to start doing this.
From this moment forward anything I post is misinformation.

Its all lies.

I typically leave at 2:45-3:00am. Launch boat at 3:50-3:55 boat ride until 4:30-4:40 Depending on current. Park boat and walk depending on which hole I'll be there right at 5:00-5:30. Set up by 6.

Side note: I wake up at 4:00am Everyday 6-7 day's of the week for work, Don't mind getting up a couple hour's early to do something I Actually love to do.

Some of you have more go than me. If I had to get up at 2, camp out, or lie about where I was I'd find something else to do.
