Okay. Mods certainly feel free to delete this thread. Although tarantulas are in the title, would be more suited to water hole where I'm not yet a member.

Anyone out there? What part of the state? etc,

I'll start. 45 years old. Bossier City. Never bred but have been keeping on and off for over 30 years. Currently have 14. Listed in my personal details page.

Cheers, :D

I'm from Houma, which is a little south of New Orleans. I've been keeping for 2 years and I have 9 Ts.

I plan on adding more in the near future and am in the process of improving my T display area.

I was born in Bossier City though...been a long time since I've been back, it has changed a lot! 15 years ago or so, most people there wore cow boy hats and boots, and went to rodeos on the weekends! Now it's all gang infested or at least that's what I've heard...

There are definitely some parts of Bossier I try to avoid when I am up that way!

Joey, I didn't see- probably so if it was out loose in the building. Yeah, not too smooth on the part of that chick! Some people.

Btw, I stopped by to check on that mf genic for you and the owner wasn't home. I left my #. He might still have it. We'll see.

Well........... anyone else out there?

Im in Shreveport so not sure how far you are from me
It's a long drive, but I'm a over the road truck driver. I pass through Shreveport a good bit. I just haven't had any luck finding someone to buy from besides online dealers

NOLA here.

If you’re looking for an awesome dealer, reach out to The Caffeinated Spider. They’re in Denham Springs so they’re within an easy drive from NOLA. They typically have a booth at Repticon.

https://m.facebook.com/TheCaffeinatedSpider/

You can also find them on Arachnoboards - @CaffeinatedSpider.

I can’t recommend them enough. I’ve done a fair bit of business with them so far and plan on lots more. In fact, we stay in touch via text and they let me know when they have something I might be interested in. Couldn’t ask for better people.
