I hunt in Evangeline Parish/'coastal zone'.
First split: we had no ducks
Second split: it was slim to none until new years, when ducks started showing up. We began shooting teal, then teal and mallards. As the season closed, pintails mixed in with them. Having the extra week really help put birds in the freezer as the last week was the best. Unfortunately my....
Towards the beginning of January near Lost Lake in Theriot, Louisiana Jody Marcel of Dularge bagged a Brewers Duck (Gadwall/Mallard Hybrid). At first we were not sure exactly what he had, but we knew it wasn't something you shoot everyday. Killing a hybrid is something rare, needless to say it will be hanging on the wall in the near future.
Nailed this big 10 point January 23rd in the basin with my bow, during gun season, public land. Don't get any better. 17 yards broad side muzzy mx3 lung shot, ran about 80 yards. 180 pound 10 point. 7:05 in the morning, raining and cold.
If you hunt the Biloxi Marsh with a mud boat you should contact LDWF. They are fixing to restrict it down to 16 hp and less with staight shaft only. I dont know if it will do any good, I think it is coming from the land owner and if LDWF does not do what they say they may pull the lease.
Also its pretty sad that all of the people with so called leases can stop you from fishing in certain areas, which they certainly can, they own the fish to i guess. Also it gets really old seeing all the guide reports on these post showing how they 'smoke' the fish day in and day out!!! Its hard to belive a fishery can sustain itself with coastal land lost and fishing pressure day in an out.....
I would like to lease/rent a piece of property for the upcoming 2015/2016 Duck hunting season. If long term is available, I would be interested in that as well. Looking for something to have family oriented. Would also be willing to help with landowners request, help, work days etc. whatever it takes to build lasting relationships. I appreciate any help or guidance on where to start. 10 acres to....
Hunted Stuttgart and Watson Arkansas Mon-Wed. Had three great hunts. Was able to hunt an awesome pit blind just north of Monroe in Arkansas that borders Overflow Wildlife Refuge. If anyone is looking to book a hunt and have the time of your life in what I would call one of the best locations the south has to offer, you need to book with this guy. As soon as I hear back from him I will provide....
I'm new to the duck hunting scene, and I went on a guided trip in Kansas with Central Kansas Outfitters. They really put us on the birds. After 3 days we killed roughly 125 birds. I think we had a total of 77 mallards, 2 pin tail, and 46 geese. We did end up with a banded specklebelly which was pretty sweet. This has really made me want to get into duck hunting even more. I know it is ....
Anyone hunt deer in Krotz Springs? I usually hunt east of the Atchafalaya. Can somebody give me some opinions on hunting that area? Also, what zone is it in? Thanks in advance for any info you can spare.
