    Thanks for your help I will send in a registration form to Cajun HRC if you think that would get me in the door to training. I actually live in henderson so that would be ideal to train in Arnaudville, LA. Thanks again for your help and I will shoot yall a PM asap.

    Thanks Again,
    James Howell

    Best bet for anyone new to the area is to attend a Cajun HRC quarterly meeting in Jennings. They have access to good training water in Arnaudville and Carencro. Or, contact them through their website, just Google Cajun HRC and call them. Introduce yourself and state your interest.

    Rumor has it that the Cajun HRC folks have agreed to an arrangement with the Cajun Riviera FT folks. Cajun Riviera has splendid grounds and water which would make for outstanding HT grounds. In return, they chip in their help at Field Trials.
    Thats good news for all involved. Cajun Riviera Club could definetly use the help and Cajun HRC gets some great grounds to use.

    Are the CRC grounds rice and crawfish land? Being an only sometimes tester, I don't have much of a horse in that race, but I'd hate to see the Cajun Club leave the type land so many of us in SWLA hunt.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    Not rice and crawfish ponds but I doubt anyone will be disappointed. They do have the ability to flood fields in the back but those are usually off limits in the fall.

    I've only pointing dog trialed in what I think is that same general area and remember it more as horse than waterfowl country, but it should be a little handier for folks from Lafayette and points east.

    You may have done pointing trials on that exact property. Owner used to be into pointing dogs years ago. Plenty of waterfowl country in that area. Look on a map and find where Highway 29 meets Highway 182 in Whiteville and look south on 182 you should be able to pick out the grounds. They have put in more ponds since then.

    The folks that control the property lock it up during duck season. The first episode of the TV Show "Cajun Outdoors" was shot on the property, a Teal shoot. They slay the ducks and geese during the season but, you won't hear them talking about it
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Frank, Bob given the water situation in Feb/Mar, which is when we plan to have the first test, we could have PLENTY of area to simulate hunt. I started a new thread to update our progress.
