You might think that Louisiana would have an abundance of places to shoot a bow.  Where I live, most are private lands.  However, I recently discovered a Wildlife Refuge about 20 minutes from home.  It has a three-D range, three fishing ponds, and some glorious paths through the adjoining woods.  I took my old Bear Kodiak out, a quiver full of arrows, and started exploring.  This place is a roving stump shooter heaven.  Beautiful meandering paths with more downed trees and stumps than Carter has liver pills.  I felt like one of those explorers in National Geographic.  I have finally found my new home.

If I may ask, which wildlife refuge is the one you are referring to? If it is close to me I may check it out. Thanks

it is nice to have options and brother it sounds like you just found some. very cool to have access to some and relatively pretty close to home too. So go have a blast every chance that you get. and you might get some decent fish to eat too!

Sounds likea great place you discovered there George. 

 I once told one of my Grandsons he had " More than Carter has Liver Pills".   I had to explain the phrase most of us grew up with. [rofl]

Keep shootin'

I guess I should have stated that I live in Denham Springs, La.  The refuge is Waddill Wildlife Refuge in Baton Rouge.  I wish you were close enough to enjoy this treasure.

I envy you! Nothing like this here in TX. I live in the DFW area where the nearest would be the Corp of Engineer easement around Lake Grapevine . That has been ruined by trail biking and subdivisions creeping in. Treasure your moments. Thanks.
Neither poverty, nor shame, nor hunger, nor dissipation, nor anything but death, can ever quite destroy the merry, innocent, Arcadian, heathen part of our nature, which takes to a bow and arrows as naturally as a butterfly to a flower.~Maurice Thompson~ 1878
