Deer Season Was A Good One

We are smack in the middle of basketball season, so get out and support your favorite teams. Do yourself a favor and check out McNeese State’s new digs.  Their new facility is absolutely first-class and a great place to spend your leisure time.  

We packed up the kids and grandkids and went to root on our favorite teams.

Some of Jeff Scarborough’s mounted memories.


Both the ladies’ and men’s teams lost, but not from lack of effort. Both teams played hard and put on a great, competitive show.  Nobody said it was going to be easy, but both teams are improving. Go Pokes!

There was a nice crowd and the band was loud, lively and very entertaining.  It was a great McNeese experience, and we plan on going again. You will not find a better deal for your entertainment dollar. Our teams will keep grinding, and the wins will eventually come.  In the meantime, show your love and support to these dedicated athletes.  See you at the game!

Spring has suddenly sprung, and our many local fisheries will be heating up soon. It is a great time to enjoy spring fishing and all the good things that come with it.

Lacassine Reserve will be opening March 15. Anticipation is high for this year. It should be exceptional for local fresh and saltwater fishing prospects.  Get your gear in order for spring fishing, Louisiana style.

This past deer season was a good one, producing beaucoup good bucks. Let’s go back in time and reminisce about a most memorable hunt.
Debbie and Karl Esthay headed north until they got into the mountains. Arkansas is not only a beautiful state, but also has a very healthy deer population. Debbie was on a mission to take her first buck, and Karl would be assigned the role of designated hound dog.

As luck would have it, a nice mature buck approached Debbie’s area, and she went into cruise control. She zeroed in and, with a smooth trigger pull, fired a round. The buck did not look like it was hit, so she breathed easy and waited for the cavalry.

Karl was not far away, and it didn’t take long for him to show up. Quite frankly, the prospects of Debbie’s first buck were beginning to dim. They found no blood to verify a solid hit. Not good.

But sometimes patience is rewarded. Debbie’s and Karl’s plan was to separate and circle the area. It was like finding a needle in a haystack with no visible blood for them to trail.
After several concentric circles, Debbie literally walked right up on her first-ever buck. Karl, just a short distance away, had no trouble hearing his partner’s kill call. There were high-fives all around and thank you, Lord, for this great 10-point buck. This is why we hunt.

Roll off the couch and support McNeese basketball by attending their games. You could not ask for a better place to play or watch a game. It is the best deal in town.
