This week we hop on the horn with our Artemis ambassadors in Louisiana, Emily Heiman and Hannah Gray to talk about what it's like to be sportswomen in the state dubbed a 'sportsman's paradise.' We hear about kayak fishing (and kayak-specific bass tournaments), deer hunting, duck hunting, roadkill salvage, and the numerous names Louisianans have for their fish.
3:00 Louisiana gets its first case of CWD (pssst... in case you missed it, we have a special series airing right now called the CWD Chronicles)
5:00 Management changes on the horizon when CWD enters the landscape
7:00 Louisiana duck-hunting feuds, ya'll
9:00 If you build a blind on public land, is it yours exclusively?
10:00 Hunter harassment laws
15:00 Private lands access, permission for bucks vs. does
18:00 Offer to be helpful to private landowners in return for hunting permission, or share some meat, especially with the elderly
20:00 "I love roadkill"
22:00 Cooking ducks whole? Nuh-nuh
24:00 Changes to bag limits... hunters across the migration corridor are affected by any new regulatory change
28:00 Kayak-fishing... AND, kayak-specific bass-fishing tournaments
30:00 Duck-hunting from a kayak
36:00 Bass-fishing kayak tournaments -- judging is by length vs. weight, handling fish, and taking a picture against a ruler for the judges
38:00 Bream fishing (aka bluegill and friends)
39:00 Trash-laden fishing spots + impromptu clean-up
44:00 Trash stewardship among hunters/anglers
46:00 Getting into hunting as an adult (YouTube, books, friends, trial & error... a diverse information diet helps tremendously)
48:00 Being invisible to a doe = magical feeling
51:00 Taking time to fish solo on a family vacation
53:00 Rod-snapping perch (and STILL getting the fish)
