I can tell you where to get some good boudin & cracklin around there.
My wife has relative around there and 1 or 2 had horses/were involved with the track.
There is a range around Arnaudeville. There is a gun store on Bayou Teche in Arnaudeville. I have heard very good things about the guy. He has something to do with the range.
