Waterfowl Hunting in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
New hunter, need advice
I'm 25 and just bought into my first duck lease. I think I have about 180 acres of marsh leased in the Port Sulphur area. I'm planning on using my 17 ft flat boat with a 40hp to pull a pirogue (that I still have to purchase) out into the marsh, then paddle into the ponds and hunt. I'll probably construct a simple blind out of chicken wire, 2X4s, and the grass you can buy at Academy.
I've been on a few trips with friends before, but it was kind of just a 'show up and go along for the ride'. I could really use some advice on how to increase my odds and have a good time. I know that ducks land into the wind, but thats about all I got.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated fellahs. How to pick a pond to hunt, easiest duck call to learn to use, decoy techniques, anything.
Hope yall are getting as pumped as I am. Thanks guys!
