Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Louisiana

Brushbuster

We waterfowl hunt a brake that is extremely thick with button willow. I need some suggestions on any machinery available that we could use to cut trails, openings etc. My thought is that there is some type of machinery used in the oil exploration industry that could be used for what we need to do. It would have to float and be able to destroy some pretty thick brush. Any suggestions?

marsh buggy

a marsh buggy could definitely run over it and smash it down using its tracks.

Marsh buggy

What's a marsh buggy? Can I rent one? Who has one?

Got it!

Did a little research found what you are talking about. The machine was originally designed to haul duck hunters on their lease south of Morgan City. I believe it will serve perfectly for what we are trying to accomplish. Thanks for your help.

land clearing

Google Marshmaster. It's a tracked marsh buggy that can be equiped with a bush hog. They use them in the swamp where I hunt to clear powerlines. I think Wilson Equipment (google it) rents them.
