new from Church Point, La

Been reading the site for a while, lots of good stuff here. Duck hunting has always been my first love but due to lack of participation on the ducks behalf, deer hunting is closing the gap. I hunt our coastal marshes and have a lot of 300+ shot opportunities, so I just got with a local gunsmith on a custom build in .280 AI to replace the .25-06 I've been shooting for the last 10 years.

Hey, you're in Cajun Country. Mighty fine eatin' in that neck of the woods.

Welcome aboard. Its a fun place.

I lived in Luling/Boutte (St. Charles parish) area for about 7 years. Did the coastal march thing once. Just hiking. Tall grass and stuff that created waves when we jumped up and down. I didn't much care for it.

Spent some time in swamps around Lac Des Alamands (spelling wrong). Way too many critters that were hostile to the human.

PC, My lease is just south of Jeanerette near Cote Blanche. Both my parents are from Baldwin, so I kinda grew up runnin around that area fishing and killin stuff.

Roy, yea we eat good round here, & walking that marsh is no picnic. most of our stands we access via mudboat, but when you kill its usually a hell of a drag. I have another lease up in the swamps too... .45/70 country, beaucoup critters like you said. Lol

Welcome to LRH!

280AI is a great choice. With it you will be able to push the 180grain Bergers at 2800. I have a 280Rem...

My 280 - Updated!
