Feb 17, 2022

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)
