Waterfowl Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
Ohhhh gotta love the second split. A little cold weather brought the trophies to the end of the world for an amazing shoot this weekend.
When you go to your favorite hole and the coon tail grass has been stripped to bare reeds and it looks like someone bush-hog'd the top of the water, your gonna be in for a good hunt. As the first glimmer of light streamed through the rozos the splash party began. First came the canvas back hot and heavy, after a quick volley we had to wait and just watch the show. 7:00 brought flight after flight of beautiful red heads and after a quick “where just shooting the ones with the red heads dad” a boom boom boom was all it took. It’s not often when u get to sit back and watch wads of teal, spoonies, red heads, and canvas backs plop in your hole and all you can do is smile. 7:30 and here they came the majestic long white necks gliding in just right. As the steel blew through the 4th pin tailed white belly opening morning of the second split was one for the record books.
A few handles of fine gentleman’s whisky and a trophy rat kill later 5:00 came early on day 2, but back to the bush hog hole we went for another amazing trophy bird hunt. Great way to start off the second split!
