BAYOU STATE RABBIT HUNTERS FEDERATION TCP CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS

BAYOU STATE RABBIT HUNTERS FEDERATION TCP CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS

15 Packs at the Bayou State Rabbit Hunters Federation TCP Championship

The Bayou State Rabbit Hunters Federation hosted their TCP Championship on April 16th. on the Acadiana Beagle Club running grounds in Egan, La. The weather was overcast keeping it cool all day, wind blew from the East in gust sometimes up to 25 MPH. Each pack had to work hard, but proved they would run a rabbit even in less then ideal conditions. Rabbits did come easy though.

The Bayou State Rabbit Hunters Federation members are great host and do know how to enjoy their hounds. They enjoy not only Rabbit Hunting, but do enjoy pleasure running, training, conditioning and Field Trialing their Beagles as well. Working with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries the Federation has acquired several thousands of acres of public land that now allows the use for not only Hunting, but training and conditioning their dogs during most of the year throughout the Bayou State.

Not only do the Bayou State members enjoy their Beagles, but they do have some darn good cooks that serve really good meals at each of their events and meetings. BBQ’ed Brisket with BBQ Beans and potato salad was served to the Beaglers as they came in to the clubhouse after their cast.

Placing packs were awarded beautiful trophies, hats, and dog food. The winning pack owner also received a Jacket with his name on the front and the Bayou State Rabbit Hunters Federation logo on the back. Wayne Smith was awarded the High Point Pack for his fine Swamp Muga pack which accumulated the most points during the qualifying trials for this event. He was presented a Plaque and Bayou State Jacket. Twenty Five packs had qualified throughout the state. Unfortunately several could not make it due to the flooding Louisiana had in the recent weeks. Please keep these families in your prayers during their rebuilding process.

COMMENT: It’s hard to get Caesar to quit fishing when we have a lot of time left in the day. He wanted to go back to the camp and clean the limits we had and fish for another limit. If I was as spry as he is, I might have done it.   It sure was nice out there today and the fish are pretty much all over the place. Of course there must have been a hundred boats going in every direction. And most everyone was catching limits. We’re starting to learn the area and can get to most of the spots we want to fish. Fishing is great right now.

Rockefeller State Wildlife Refuge Public Access to Be Temporarily Restricted

Rockefeller State Wildlife Refuge Public Access to Be Temporarily Restricted Beginning Sept. 2

Aug. 21, 2015 — Rockefeller State Wildlife Refuge will begin the annual nuisance alligator harvest on Wednesday, Sept. 2. During this period, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will not open the refuge to the public each day until 10 a.m.

After 10 a.m., the public will be allowed to enter the refuge and utilize recreational areas until official sunset each day. The delayed openings will be in effect for seven days or until all alligator trappers have utilized their tags for this controlled harvest.

The refuge, spanning 26 miles of coastal Louisiana in Cameron and Vermilion parishes, provides recreational opportunities to fishermen seeking shrimp, redfish, speckled trout, black drum, and largemouth bass, among other species.

Rockefeller SWR is one of the most biologically diverse wildlife areas in the nation and attracts over 100,000 visitors annually. Located at the terminus of the vast Mississippi Flyway, south Louisiana winters about four million waterfowl annually. The refuge provides high quality wetlands habitat for ducks, geese, shorebirds and wading birds.

For more information on Rockefeller State Wildlife Refuge, visit the LDWF website at www.wlf.la.gov or contact Phillip Trosclair at 337-491-2593.

Tom Leblanc Report Four Horse, Oak River

Untitled1

Today was my first venture out from the new fishing camp at Delacroix. We brought it out from Baton Rouge last Sunday and got it all set up. I didn’t expect too much in the way of fish today because this is more of a winter spot. It should get pretty good this fall. I did explore some new areas down at the end of Oak River. From there we’ll be able to go out to Black Bay and spots like Stone Island. I’m planning to spend Sunday night thru Wednesday at the new camp.
