Final Thoughts On Whitetails Unlimited Banquet

It’s now been a month since a record-breaking fund raising banquet was held in Ruston when the Lincoln Parish Chapter of Whitetails Unlimited was held with an overflow crowd in attendance. Although all the statistics are not in covering all aspects of the event attended by more than 600 enthusiastic folks, one of the most impressive things about this year’s banquet was how last year’s banquet captured national attention. In fact, the national president of Whitetails Unlimited traveled all the way down from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin to attend this year’s banquet and bringing with him some special awards to be presented to the local chapter.

Union Parish Shines Spotlight On A Native Son

Attorney Thirty-five years ago, two turkey hunting cousins from the Union Parish hamlet of Downsville, whittled out a crude turkey call that didn’t look like much but what it lacked in looks, it made up for it with the sound it produced that would flat-out attract the attention of a wary turkey gobbler. Today, that little call has become the center piece of Cedar Hill Game Calls, a successful nationally-known business.

Fishing In The Summer Can Be Hot – Literally

One of my very favorite times to bass fish is this time of year. There is not better time for me to be on the water than when daylight is just starting to creep in. I remember one August morning on D’Arbonne I was fishing where Burnt Stump Slough connects with the main channel. I was casting a black buzz bait and when my retrieve brought the lure within six feet of the boat, a thunderous explosion almost took the rod from my hand. A five pound bass saw my sputtering lure as breakfast about to get away and nailed the buzz bait.
