The river: keeping a promise

The list of people who have kept watch over the Ouachita River environment is long…too long to put here. Some like Dr. Michael Caire of West Monroe and Jim Hall of Ruston, who founded SORE (Save the Ouachita River Environment) in the 1980’s, are near the top of the list. Numerous state Wildlife and Fisheries … Continue reading

Mollicy: A magnificent turnaround

Stopping the channelization of the Ouachita River was a huge environmental victory 30 years ago. Today, man’s part of another huge environmental project with future benefits we can’t even fully comprehend has been completed. It’s an amazing project. Last Thursday, water flowed down Mollicy Bayou and into the Ouachita River for the first time in … Continue reading

NWTF: Putting words into action

I don’t turkey hunt. Somehow I’ve escaped the fever in my 50+ years of outdoor pursuits. But I do have great respect for those that do turkey hunt. It’s a challenging, one-on-one sport.

Today’s outdoor tidbits

Today we’ve got  several things: a word about the weather, a short fishing report and a followup to D’Arbonne’s spot on Duck Dynasty. First,  the weather: It has been unseasonably cool this week, but it should get hot again tomorrow. Don’t like the weather here? How about these extremes? The world’s lowest temperature yesterday was … Continue reading

D’Arbonne Dynasty goes viral

8.5 million people. That’s the average number of fans who watch Duck Dynasty every Wednesday night. Hey, Jack. I’ve been busy trying to promote Lake D’Arbonne for the past two years through this website and organizations like the Union Parish Tourist Commission have been doing it for years. So have many other groups and individuals. … Continue reading

Unintended deceit

Okay, this is too funny to not share with you and only Uncle Si and I could team up to do it. Yesterday, I got 251 “clicks” on lakedarbonnelife.com from Brazil. I get a daily report of how many clicks there are on the site and where they come from. I do get viewers from … Continue reading

Doin’ Duck Day the Right way!

In case you missed it, Duck Dynasty began Season Six Wednesday night. And in case you missed it, the show had a special guest,  Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Yes, I watched it.
