Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
1st Split Results
Finally had a chance to tally up my results from the first split. Although I am seeing far less ducks this year than previous years, my numbers indicate better success, however I am hunting harder, smarter, later and I am willing to move around to insure success.
My blind made 10 hunts in the first split bagging 137 ducks with 23 hunters which is an average of 5.96 ducks per hunter per attempt. This is above last year's average of 5.62 ducks per hunter per attempt and better than last years 1st split of 5.45 ducks. The numbers are misleading because it's not easy this year and I had many hunts where we sat in the blind for 5 hours to limit out.
Our bag consisted of 61% gadwall, 18% green wing teal and the rest a mix of mottled, widgeon, pintail, mallard, spoonies, dosgris, bw teal and buffle heads.
Looking forward to gettng back out there this weekend seeing sun rises like this and the smiles on young ones faces. It should be a good opener with this cold front coming through this week and since the birds are well rested. Happy Hunting....
