Mr. Green Jeans, Longbell...

  1. Someone posted a thread about the GW's in the area. I just wanted to let ya'll know this was no B.S.! We got rapped by them on Tuesday morning close to Longbell. They checked everything we had and then some. They were watching us from across the field with binocs. They knew exactly how many we had in our party and seen alot of birds fall. But we had our limit and we were 100% legal, they had a job to do and did it well. They were real professional doing their job, no complaints here but they are in the area for sure! :up:

    They are always in the area. I can count on one hand the times that I have NOT been checked at Bayou Meto in the past 3 years.

    I can count on 1 hand how many times I have been checked at the metro. Twice that's it!!! Guess I'm lucky

    same way here..i usually hunt lower 10-15 times a year and i've been checked less than 10 times the past 5 seasons. im a midweek guy, so im sure that has a lot to do with it..? :head:

    I have never been checked at the bayou. But then again I haven't hunted down there in 2 years.

    They are always waiting at the boat ramp to check me when I've been up since 1 am and I'm cold and tired and can't wait to go home

    x2 and it was the same two friggin wardens!!! and still went through all the shells, plugs and whole nione yards the second time!
    Maybe I just have bad luck but that's the only place I have ever been checked I think. Not counting the "first person to shoot" award I got one lovely teal season morning. :thumb:

    Longbell is the only place I've ever been checked in Bayou Meto. Once while duck hunting then another time that year with a 10 point in the back of the truck on a permit hunt. Not anywhere else though.

    Ive never been checked out in the woods at lower but have been at the ramp several times. Longbell I have been checked going in, while hunting, and walking back to the truck. Also have been checked at mulberry a hand full of times. I guess that's about it, longbell is the worst for me

    I don't mind getting checked down there at all. About how long of a walk to water has it been lately?
