I had one group come in to the dekes early yesterday. Shot one. Never shot again. (The good news: I connected on the first shot of the season.)There was very little shooting in the marshes around Slidell. The two groups I talked to on the way in got skunked. I know of at least one party that, given the conditions, had a half-way decent trip. For the most part, though, it was just as forecast: awfully, depressingly slow.
Hunted church point area, shot 4 lost one, 3 hunters. Saw maybe 3-4 others. Heard very little shooting.
Only had 2 groups of birds come by, knocked down 5, went home with 4. Just me and my son hunting.
Hunted spring bayou in the lakes. First day shot 2. Today got 6 but got lucky had only 1 group come in and apparently me and my buddy were dead on. Ha ha ha. Talked to a few people at the landing and they had no luck. A friend of mine hunted catahula and got 18 opening morning and 9 this morning. But they stop flying early.
We killed 15 Saturday and 8 on Sunday in Delacroix. The slowest it has been for us in many years. Still great to be out in Paradise!
Blue Point / Lafitte...Saturday, 8 hunters took 4 teal total
East Crowley 1 teal sawmottle woodies and 1 group of teal on fresh flooded field.South rayne scratch had 4 woodies land and saw 2 groups of teal. Did not see any birds move like past seasons. Not on the x this weekend. Doves are in good numbers in area.
Anyone have any results from the jennings rice field over the weekend, going to my lease when i get off work in the mornin wondering what I can expect.
hunted salvador saturday, never saw a teal, got 15 gallinules, though, went to a private area in hammond had 6 at 7am, good shooting, because i only saw 7
4 hunters killed 20 on Saturday and 15 on Sunday. We were fortunate to have good hunts but the numbers were not there yet. Mostly singles and doubles flying in but no large groups yet.Next week will be different and the third weekend should be fire.
Saturday 8 hunters killed 5 birds and on sunday 5 hunters killed 3 birds. this morning 2 hunters killed 1 bird. I didnt see many birds flying around friday during the day or saturday during the day
Hunted saturday in sunday at my lease in the marsh of Boston. Between 4 hunters all weekend we killed a total of 5 teal. Saturday morning the teal were far and few between. Sunday morning saw a few nice flocks but they were flying high an didn't want to work. Hopefully this weekend is better. It was the worst start to teal season I have seen in quite a long time.
Hunted north of Cocodrie on my new lease north of the Bush Canal in between Montegut and Chauvin. Made three hunts sat morning, sat afternoon, and sunday morning and shot a total of 10 teal. Sunday afternoon was by far the best hunt saw plenty of flocks of teal and had a flock of 30 come in the decoys just bad shooting. Sunday morning it was as if all the teal moved out overnight. I hope they come down soon. Anyone got any ideas as to when they will be down in the southeast louisiana marsh?
They will really be down in good numbers if we get a decent cool front. Im sure a few will trickle down with out one but it will speed up the process
we have a full moon approaching on thursday which should also help get the migration going.
1 bird heard shooting all morning in one spot other than that everyone at the landing had one or none
Tee Mamou south of Basile, we hunted 8 hunters and killed 12 opening morning. Sunday hunted 9 hunters and killed 13. Biggest group that came in was five. Very slow compared to last year.
we are in grand chenier and we slaughtered em. on saturday 9 hunters, 9 limits so 54 birds. On sunday we had 8 hunters and had almost 7 limits with 39 birds. 93 birds for the weekend made it our best opening weekend so far. birds are all over the marsh. saw a good amount of big ducks too.
Finally able to go to hopefully shoot some blue rockets - My buddy, Sam, da retriever & I was in the blind north of Welsh. We enjoyed the beautiful sun rise. (You know the old saying - 'Red sky in the morning sailor take warning.) We strained our eyes for some 2 hours praying the rockets would have the guts to come by to visit; We saw a total of plus or minus 10 trillion mosquitos & only 8 rockets, but didn't get to pop a cap. Oh well, that is why 'they' call it huntin, not killin. Back after them this coming Thursday, Friday & Saturday.Man, da' gonna pay for their late arrival - that is, if dem blue rockets show up.
My son and about 10 of his podnas went down to the delta in Venice on opening weekend and did great. On Saturday they all killed a limit and Sunday they did good also.
Saturday limted out with 4 people and sunday limted ouy with four people hunted in mores la
Our property is south of Kaplan in cow island. We were fortunate. Saturday 4 hunters 4 limits 24 birds by 7:30. Has a bunch of flocks of 3-5 and one or two with 15 or so. But most were between those sizes. Not as many Birds as we usually see on opening but enough to fill limits. Sunday was slower but we were able to kill all but a few in our limit. Again 4 hunters and we had 21. Should have limited out. Had one flock of 15 come in and only one of us shot and killed one.Good luck this weekend, looks like it will be wet.
I hunt south of kaplan , in cow island and didnt fire a shot opening day. where u guys set up at ? we have not ever seen any thing like this.
