Atchafalaya basin offers good public deer and hog hunting, and you can put that pointer to work on woodcock out there.

Might as well move to East TX and live in a state with some governmental balls if you're considering Lake Charles area

That's what I was thinking.

None of those places they are mentioning sound like places you really want to be. Might as well live in Texas.

I want to thank y'all for all of your helpful comments, there's a lot of good information here. I'll be referring to this thread often while planning my first trips down. It looks like I may be able to get down earlier than planned, maybe in the first couple weeks of June. Are there any events coming up in that time frame that are worth planning around? I really do appreciate your input, if other folks down there are half as helpful, and friendly I know I'm making a good decision.

More info is needed.

How old are you?
Do you have kids, are the involved in sports?
Are you married?
What do you do for a living, will you continue to work when you move here?
Do you enjoy nightlife?

49yo, no kids, girlfriend, I own an alarm company here in NC, I will still be involved in a limited capacity, would like to find local employment to transition to.

Oh and yes on the nightlife... night on the lake chasing jugs, campfire, and a good bourbon.

Lafayette or on Big Lake. Two coolest places I know.

Agreed.

Cocodrie. Get right with Ms. Maggie and all will be good. This ignorant Texan drives 11 hours pulling the boat to fish it.

I live in Lake Arthur. Fresh water all around. Duck hunting, goose hunts, deer hunting.

The only thing is salt water is at least an hour away.

2X. I'm 3-3.5 hrs to salt here, and mediocre fresh spots within an hour. That sounds good to me.

Mandeville/Covington area are great. Least amount of trash in the state IMO. I chose Covington for easy access to Inshore or offshore Saltwater, Freshwater, Frogging, Deer, and Duck Hunting. Easy beach trips to MS, AL, FL. Party in NOLA or BR with a 35 min drive.

Covington is also north of most flooding from Hurricanes, just stay a couple miles away from the rivers and you'll be safe from flood waters.
