College anglers hit the Bend

WEATHER ALERT: No, this is a  good  weather alert. It’s going to be a beautiful weekend and expect our lakes and launching ramps to be very busy. Be courteous and be careful out there! I hope the fish are ready to get as active as the fishermen! ******************* College Football’s over. Baseball had its season … Continue reading

Taking to the bow

I am amazed at the number of people the past decade that have taken up archery, both for hunting and just as a shooting sport.  I’m also amazed at the number of young people who have taken to the bow and arrow. It’s a great sport and when compared with playing with a X-Box, it’s … Continue reading

Heroes complete rabbit mission!

Saturday’s Hunters for Heroes rabbit hunt in Morehouse Parish was a successful mission. Not only did 135 people show up to help cook for, guide and just plain support the 10 wounded veterans that took part in the hunt, enough rabbits even took part to provide meat for a rabbit stew! I’ll let Louisiana Hunters … Continue reading

Still itching to get up before the crack of dawn, wade through the mud in the cold or rain and take a few shots at high flying birds? Well, it’s time to get your goose. The extended goose season is upon us and there are plenty of geese. The only question is what to do … Continue reading

Deer gone it!

With only a few exceptions, mostly for primitive weapons, the 2013-14 deer season is gone. It’s in the books. It’s a wrap. Check the LDWF regulations pamphlet to make sure of any remaining dates in your area, and the special requirements, like primitive weapons only, for those dates! From all indications, it was a good … Continue reading

The show will feature Willie’s daughter Rebecca, fresh from graduating college and an … Continue reading

Hunt like a Hero

Saturday, I had a great time at Wild Wings in Downsville visiting with four of the United States Army’s finest,  SFC Phillip Whitty, SGT Steve Keller, SPC Daniel Cothren, and SPC Red Mauck. They all arrived at the Lodge Friday and did a little trap shooting with Louisiana Hunters for Heroes President Donnie Vocker, his … Continue reading

Go Fish

Overall, hunting season was pretty good in our area. We had much colder temperatures than normal early in the season and that was good for deer and duck hunters. Union Parish is one of the top two parishes in the state for deer hunting and this season did not disappoint. In fact, the busiest folks … Continue reading

Spreading the Gospel

God uses many people in many different ways to spread the gospel. This was on Facebook this week and I thought it was worth sharing. Yes, I clicked “like”… “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” — … Continue reading

“Duck the Halls” brings early Christmas

They may run short of Miss Kay’s meatloaf occasionally at Willie’s Duck Diner. And thousands of people who don’t know which end of a duck call to blow into are getting one for Christmas. Someone even asked how long this Duck Mania will last. Even Santa has critics, but tired of Duck Dynasty and the … Continue reading
