A Must-Have Book for the turkey Hunters

When I receive a book from an author for my review, I usually scan the book, read portions of it to see if it’s a work I want to promote. Afterwards, I let my readers know what I think of the book. I received one recently that I couldn’t put down until I read every single word.

My reason for sitting and absorbing all 207 pages of “Turkey Men” is that I’m a turkey hunter and the stories I read in this fascinating work by Thomas R. Pero, is the amazing story of six individuals from across the country who have done the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest barefoot. Or swam the English Channel with one hand tied behind a back. Or run the 100 yard dash in seven seconds.

In this book, Pero sits down and talks with each of these turkey hunters – the dialogue between Pero and the hunters is as if you’re sitting there listening in – about accomplishing the impossible. Each of the six has completed the U. S. Super Slam of wild turkeys.

26 Winn Families Impacted by April Flooding

On April 2nd and 3rd of 2017, much of Louisiana was impacted by severe storms that brought heavy rains, wind, and even tornado activity. Winn Parish, like many other areas of Louisiana, received the enormous and quick rainfall. It is estimated that approximately 6 inches of rain fell on Winnfield in just a matter of hours.

As a result of the flooding, there have been 26 families identified that were severely impacted by the flood waters, with some homes receiving as much as 48 inches of water in them. Emergency personnel conducted evacuations and rescues in some areas and area streets were left damaged. Soil was washed out in areas, leaving behind sinkholes and what residents in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Street area are calling a danger.

Spring Squirrel Season Kicks Off

The majority of hunters are going through a blue funk right about now. Turkey season has been put on the shelf until next March and it’s time to clean the gun, put away the camo and get ready for bream fishing or tackling the honey do list, whichever comes first.

Whoa, just a minute….are you a squirrel hunter? You say you are but squirrel season is six months away, right? Wrong; season opened for spring squirrel hunting Saturday May 6. You’re probably thinking it’s a little weird to be sneaking out to the woods with your shotgun in May. However, it’s the real deal; spring squirrel season is open, running through May 28 on private lands and some public areas; you’ll need to check your hunting pamphlet or give LDWF a call to see if the public area you’re interested in is open.

Eight years ago when the first spring squirrel season in modern times opened, curiosity sent me seeking some answers as well as tips on how to hunt squirrels in May.
