“…they prove there is no party like a bayou party in America's Sportsman's Paradise.”
You say grilling and eating a giant rat you killed yourself is uncouth? Between slaying nutria for a Mardi Gras celebration, lying in wait for mallards in Venice, or fighting off a wild hog, these Cajun boys know their way around Louisiana’s bayous. For these home-grown, southern hunters, the swamp really is a land of abundance. The cast of Cajun characters lampoons not just the city dwellers who venture into the swamp seeking a duck-hunting adventure like they’ve seen on TV, but also themselves and the other local residents they encounter. Everyone is fair game in this laugh-out-loud book full of fun, practical advice, and a new Cuban-Cajun recipe in each chapter!
