Looks like LSU has hit on a way to bait and kill feral hogs. It's a type of salt that will kill the hogs in 30 minutes from the time they eat it. More

I haven't added a blog here in a while, and for that, I apologize. My health has improved drastically in the last several weeks and I'm feeling more like writing and a feeling that I need to hit the woods real soon.

I feel like the 2013 - 2014 season was very successful. I don't have the complete harvest report with me, but some nice deer were killed and there were some nice racks too. Even I took a nice doe myself on my last hunt of the year. The past three years weren't as good as this past season, the reason, in my opinion, it was because we did not supplemental feed as much, AKA, we didn't feed the hogs! We saw a lot fewer hogs this past season and much less sign of them. I know however, there are some still on the lease. I like to kill and eat wild hogs as much as the next guy, but they will destroy your food plots first and then your deer hunting. They compete for the same resources as the Whitetail Deer.

Two of my great nephews killed there…


An Early Week Deer Hunt

Posted by Elbis Ledbetter on December 22, 2013 at 6:31pm 3 Comments

After my duck hunt on Monday, my friend Darryl and I drove up to Pattison, MS to hunt some property he has up there. We saw several small does but nothing we wanted to shoot. We went back Tuesday morning and much the same thing happened. But, things changed drastically on the evening hunt. At 4:00 PM a nice doe came out and I secured some meat for the freezer. At 5:00 PM a nice 8 pt came across the food plot and I let him walk. A few minutes later a huge high rack 6 point came out. What a beautiful creature. I let him walk. A doe came out and moved out of my vision to the right and shortly after that a huge buck came across the food plot moving fast toward the doe. I saw him well through my binoculars. He was an 8 pt., long tines, and heavy mass. He moved out of my vision to the right where the doe had gone. About 5 minutes later he came back into food plot and marched over to a huge oak tree on the far end of the food plot, about 230 yards. He stretched himself up on his hind legs…


A Very Good Duck Hunt

My future son in law, Bubba (Randall Norman Jr.), Darryl Boyce and I took off Monday morning and met Chip Maraist in St. Martinville at 5:30 A.M. We went out to Chip's duck blind and got settled in. Bubba went scuba diving a couple of times on the way in. I didn't realize he liked to swim that much. We killed a limit for 4 and had a great hunt.

Elbis' grandson, my great nephew,Cameron LeJuene, hunted with us at West Fork Hunting Club for his third year. He had not gotten a chance to take his first deer, but he tried hard to make it happen. He was up and ready to go on stand at the drop of the hat, no complaining! He was like an old hand at the camp this year.

I had gone home on Sunday morning, November 24th, Elbis and Cam stayed over another day after the Thanksgiving holiday to make an evening hunt. Three does came into the food plot after 4 PM. Cam pick out one of the young does. He put the cross hairs on the doe and squeezed off his single shot .270 H&R single shot. The deer jump straight up in he air, he had made a good hit! With some tracking help from ROB, "Zee", and Law Dog, they found her after dark. However the is more to…

I usually practice all year round, except when the weather gets to bad in the later months. I shot about 100 arrows a day at different yardage. I also shot my broadheads during this time as well. I have two sights that I use so I just take one off…Continue

Scouting at the Skinning Pole

I'm wondering how many people look at the contents of deer's stomachs, to find out what the deer are eating. Like the CSI, it could tell you the whole story. I would bet that most has corn in our area. I know for a fact that food plots work, from…Continue

When God made the fishes of the sea, he took some of them and made some deer, so that his children could hunt and fish!


1) Man did not evolve from apes! We are still apes, look in the mirror after 3 days at the deer camp!

11) The quote, that the eyes are the window to the soul, it's true, when someone looks at you with dead eyes, you know where you stand with them. Avoid those people and don't get dragged down in to hell!

19) God made fish and then deer for men to catch and hunt. Whether fish evolved into deer is in question, but if God wanted to do it that way, he could! Matt. 19 : 26, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
20) I believe in evolution, but I believe that God made us to evolve. I think that God, being all knowing, knew how much we would screw up things, so he designed us to evolve to adjust to our screw ups. I truly believe that with God, all things are possible. Who am I to say that He would or won't design us that way! I don't presume to know what's in Gods plan for us, so I never say that God would not have designed things to evolve. He probably inspired Darwin to come up with his theory! Amen!
21) If you have to ask your wife if you can get into a hunting club, you ain't getting in, cause the answer is NO!
22) If you're a nut case going into a psychiatrist's office, you're going to still be a nut case when you come out.

25) Deer hunt every day that you can, hopefully today, for tomorrow you may die!

Serves 8 - 10 People


Peanut oil (bacon grease is good too) to saute meat.

3 lbs. Venison cut into stew meat.

2 Large onions, diced.

2 Bell peppers, diced.

2 Table Spoons minced garlic.

Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning.

2 14.5 oz. cans name brand chopped carrots.

2 14.5 oz. cans name brand sweet peas.

1 8 oz. can of name brand nibblet corn.

1-11/2 lbs. new potatoes, diced.

1 Box/can Swanson's beef broth.


1) Brown stew meat, onions, bell pepper, and garlic in a 6 quart dutch oven, season the meat and seasonings with Tony Chachere's

2) Add all can goods, including the juice from the can.

3) Add the beef broth.

4) Add the diced potatoes.

5) Bring to a boil,  the lower the heat to a simmer, cover and simmer for an hour.

6) Serve over buttered cornbread, your recipe or Bubba's Creamy Cornbread.

7) Check the seasoning towards the end of the cooking time, you may want to add some more Tony Chachere's, you've added a lot of ingredients to the mix at this point. I check the stew several times for seasoning during cooking.


2 Pound bag of Aunt Jamima's Yellow Corn Meal.

Follow the instructions on the back of the bag, except for the milk. Substitute sour cream for the milk, then add 1 small can drained of nibblets corn and 3 table spoons of diced, mild, jalapeno peppers. You will have to add some milk to thin down the batter.  


This stew is easy to cook and is great at home or at the camp. I always use name brand ingredients, the stew always taste better with better quality ingredients, I've cooked this stew hundreds of times, I know this for a fact.

You'll love the creamy cornbread, with the stew over it or on the side or both, you can't go wrong. The stew may be cooked ahead of time, like a day or two, it gets better after the first day you've cooked it.
