Bastrop: Trophy Town

What’s an outdoor “Trophy Town”?

It’s a community “smack dab in the middle of a local outdoor paradise that makes them special places to live and visit”. That’s what the Louisiana Sportsman February edition said when it named eight great Trophy Towns in Louisiana. And Bastrop was at the top of the list.

Bussey Brake, Wham Brake, duck hunting the rice fields and flooded woods, the Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuge, Chemin-A-Haut State Park and Bayou Bartholomew were some of the reasons. And Simmons’ Sporting Goods even got a shoutout as a “destination for outdoorsmen from across the south”.

Here are a couple of screen shots from the article.
