Growing up there was always talk about how the area around lake Maurepas was so great in the late 1970's all the way to late 1980's for waterfowl. My opinion the reason this area fell off the map was because the introduction of Salvania. The Salvania has created a blanket on top of the water and does not let any aquatic vegetation grow, which in return the ducks do not have feed. From above,....
Had a pretty on/off season similar to most folks I spoke to. Started promising with an early 4 man limit opening day and spiraled downward from there. More teal than anything with the occasional grey duck to get excited over. Even managed to squeeze in a spontaneous trip to Oklahoma! Here's a video with a few hunts from our season, hope everyone enjoys.
There have been public meetings throughout the state regarding next years duck season. Anyone been and have anything to report?
Anyone have an educating reason as to why we can't have a season that extends into the first week of February?
First, before reading this, know that it's not a knee jerk post, but one that I've thought about for a while before posting. Also, this is not a rant because no birds were killed on our trip. I am a hunter who fully understands why they call it hunting and not killing.
I was recently invited on a last minute goose hunting trip with Kevin Babineaux at Cajun Wildlife Adventures in....
Two of my buddies and I are looking to get in a duck lease for next season. We live in the covington Louisiana area but don't mind driving a few hours to get to the lease. Any info about getting in a lease for next season would be very much appreciated. Thanks and God bless!
Ummmm.. what is there to do for three duck guides after the season closes in the Coastal Zone? The wives were thinking about all the honey-dos that had been put off since Septembers teal season. That sounds logical right ? We had hunted almost 50 days of the 60 day season .. surely we were tired of the cold , rainy days in the duck blind.Not!!!
A few phone calls to a good friend in....
Greetings to everyone and hope you all have had a great duck/goose season.
I hunt Louisiana and the Texas gulf coast just about every year and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good guide in southwest Louisiana to hunt some specklebellys. I drive over from Florida and thought I could find something near I-10.
I'm planning a trip next season back out to the Laguna Madre and....
Joseph Pommier and family friend Captain Scott Leger of Paradise Outfitters haul out a limit of speckle bellies from Scott's family farm south of Rayne Louisiana. The geese were pretty thick over the holidays and Joseph, his dad and captain Scott made short work of a limit. Captain Scott isn't just one of Venice's most well known Tuna guides he is also pretty dangerous with a speck call.....
With my Southfork in the skillful and trusted hands of mechanic,Chuck Evans,decided on nice solo hunt de ole-school way,with rogue seated and giant palmetto branches breaking up outline of'rogue.Met fellow duck hunter and we exchanged spots we intended to hit so as to co-ordinate efforts(too bad that is not the norm,especially late-season hunts and hunting public land-co-operation essential for....
Are there any restrooms or Port-a-Potties at the designated campgrounds on PAL. Whether or not one of the wives in our group comes with us next season hangs in the balance of the answer to this question!
guys we need to get organized and speak up against these issues! the people of louisiana should have more say so in what is being done to affect our duck hunting! we see the problems because this our land, its painstakingly ovbious to most people that are from here what needs to be done! one unified voice from everybody who hunts/fishes in this great state needs to be heard!!
Well guess what happens this weekend? Yep gotta cross go north of hwy 90 to duck hunt. If I were in that region I'd get mad! Yea them guys in coastal got a 2 week head start, and now they gonna take our ducks. So why am I telling y'all this. Well because. We didn't want to start early, nor did we want to end early! After we are on the coast. Ducks come from up north, so why....
Good evening all,
I'm in the market for a kayak primarily for fishing. In doing some research, I stumbled upon people duck hunting from a kayak. Blew my mind away. Of course, the itch increased more after reading about hunting from a yak. Anyway, does anyone have any experience in doing this? Where do you typically go (I assume its a lot of WMA's)? Do you make a blind for it? Overall....
Hunting Saturday last day before the season and I shot a strang looking duck. I got it in and it looks like a mallard gadwal mix. Very pretty. Any other ideas on what it may be? Just want to be sure. I am mounting it!
Been hunting the same lease for right at 20 years in the Holly Beach area of Cameron Parish. It has been easily the worst year I have ever experienced. Been a very strange year with weather and obviously high water also. Hope others have done better than we have. This is the first year I can honestly say when it closes on the 17th I won't be bummed out. Hoping for better luck to finish the....
Does anyone know of someone who works on gator tail motors close to the prairieville/Gonzales area? On an afternoon hunt today my buddy's gator tail sounded like it was running out of gas then started making a clanking noise he has a video of it running with the clanking noise on our way in. Any help appreciated his name is Chandler if you know anyone who can work on it 225-202-1180 thanks
I took a picture of what I assume is a floating duck blind someone made on Grand Caillou towards Dulac. It was at the road but had no for sale sign and nobody was home. Does anyone know where I can find something like this?
