Well, well. All I can say is WOW!

I would first like to thank all of you who voted in favor of HB 391. You are truly a blessing to the Sportsman's Paradise.

To those of you who voted against it, you must truly want us to continue to be called "Posted Paradise."

Many of you do not know me. As a matter of fact, most of you don't. Very few of you actually do. The few that actually do probably already know my passion for the outdoors. I would truly have to say that today is a big black eye to our beloved state. Excuse me while I rant here but, how can any of you who voted against HB 391 expect us sportsmen to feel like those of you who were in opposition of this bill do not have your hands in the back pockets of big money land owners? For way too many years, I have been watching our coastal areas become off limits due to land owners gating off bayous. How can any of you honestly think it's ok to do the things that are being done?

Even after all that Rep. Pearson put into this bill to protect the land owners, you still voted against it. I personally do not think there would have been anything that would have swayed your vote. Just one more action that leads us to truly believe some of you have your hands in the back pockets of the big money land owners.

All one in their right mind has to do is look at the photos below that I took south of Westwego some 10 years ago. After doing so, they would know something is wrong. Honestly tell me, do you think this is right? I don't expect an answer. I'm sure most of you who oppose this bill have much better things to do with your time rather than bother with returning an email to me, like go celebrate with the land owners tonight.

Hope you can sleep well tonight knowing you wronged the sportsmen of Louisiana!

May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the hind end of poachers and may their arms be too short to scratch!!
