If Louisiana is the Sportsman's Paradise then Honey Brake is the heart beat of that Paradise. Wing shooting that includes Ducks, Geese, and Doves. Big game hunting offers Whitetail Deer and Alligator for a well-rounded hunting experience all offered at Honey Brake.

 

 

WINGSHOOTING

 

With the convergence of the Central and Mississippi migratory flyways Honey Brake has an abundance of duck and goose species. Close proximity to Catahoula Lake, a 60,000 acre waterfowl wintering grounds, and the Mississippi River, there is a "funnel" effect that brings the best that water fowling has to offer to Honey Brake.
