Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Lake Borgne / Chef Menteur

Biloxi WMA

Do the ducks flock to the WMA to rest or eat? Or both? What's the natural food source? Is there any food left after the storm?

both

Man them ducks are crazy down there. They eat, sleep, poop, swim, swim, fly, have unprotected sex and are just generally unruly. Someone should put a stop to those crazy quackers.

duck hunters

for the most part...duck hunters on this board are pieces of shit..

To the OP... Most everyone says later morning to midday hunts are better in Biloxi. Maybe its to rest or maybe its just coastal birds.

rest

What I can tell you is that everywhere ive scouted so far the feed is gone from the hurricane. From what i know and have experienced the birds are not going to biloxi for feed anyways. They use the area to rest and just come on and off the wma as they please all day. There is a lot of marsh out there and because of the access there will always be areas where the birds can sit down with no hunting pressure.

Slow down turbo

It was meant to be comical. No one is claiming territory on public land.

Turbo

It wasn't meant towards you webfoot , just generally speaking . A lot of the duck hunting post that I have read recently are really territorial . Seems like there isn't enough room anymore to hunt the marshes .

no love lost

i believe that the land is available for everyone to use.(thank you Louisiana)but to expect individuals who put in the effort to learn when, where, and how to use that land to maximize their efforts with results to just offer up that information for free to hundreds of people to use makes little sense to me. The land is public and free to everyone but the knowledge is not and some people may guard that knowledge because of the time,effort, and money it takes to acquire.

same oinion

I have hunted Point aux Chene/Montegut WMA for the last 15 year. I have scouted, adjusted, scouted some more, and figured where the ducks are, and how they want to hunted, put in the work. Yes it is PUBLIC, but sportsman respect is a big thing, I have had people follow me then go set up unprepared 100ft from me and totally F my hunt up. Just the same as fishing some birds for trout and some jack leg coming right on top of you then screwing up both of us. Respect is gone these days. The WAX is another monster that you need days of scouting before hunting there, again putting in time. It is the hardest, most disorienting,vast,and Dangerous place to go unprepared.Just my opinion thou so.
