Ville Platte Rotary Club Hears from Gene Buller


ROTARY CLUB

JULY  29, 2014

 

      The Rotary Club of Ville Platte heard from outdoorsman and newspaper columnist Gene Buller during their weekly meeting today (Tuesday). Buller is a writer for the Bonnes Nouvelles.

      Buller, at the request of Rotarian Jake Ardoin, spoke on the subject of Miller’s Lake. In the mid 1920’s, Gus Miller purchased land in the Platin area. Miller had a vision that the area could be used for future generations by fixing the drainage.

    The Miller’s Lake area takes in  the drainage for all of the northern part of Evangeline Parish. The hunting club at Miller’s Lake began in 1929 with five original members each paying $5. Gene Buller has been a member of the hunting club for the past 63 years. He has hunted  with 130 different club members in the years he has been a member.

     Buller, in the year 2000, published a book on his stories and memories of the outdoors. He shared a story when he was 7 years old, was taken on his first hunt and shot a red wing black bird with a .410 shotgun.

    He reported that Miller’s Lake has the second largest black bird roost in the country. At its height, it was estimated that 17.5 million blackbirds make Miller’s Lake their home.
