I Was wondering what's some of the stories my fellow sportsman have on shooting banded birds. How were they shot,have you ever shot two super close together , more than one in a day etc . Also does anyone know the odds of shooting one ?!
TeamDuckMeat was at it again this weekend on Public land and a little scouting put limits in the boat. The big ducks just about disappeared but the Teal came in droves and it was easy shooting as flocks of 30 to 40 lit in the decoys. We waited on Big ducks as long as we could but they were few and far between. Sometimes ya gotta slay!
Saturday was a 4 man limit(2blinds)consisting of 3.... Read More
For as long as i can remember, i've been using a mudboat for my waterfowl hunting (16 ft fiberglass with a subaru), but im now on the brink of purchasing a surface drive. They are more comfortable and can haul more ppl and equipment. I had my mind set on a gatortail with a center console and was pretty much sold on buying it. Recently, however, one of my friends purchased a prodrive with a.... Read More
I just got a real nice drake wood duck today on a quick morning hunt, and I was looking to get him mounted. If anyone knows a taxidermist in the New Orleans or Baton Rouge area that does a good job on woodies, let me know. Thanks
We had a great first split down in Delacroix the last few weeks and can't wait for December 14 when the second split opens up! We started off the first 2 weeks with quick limits and tons of shooting for my guests but if we were patient enough we were shooting alot of big ducks. I learned real quick this year that the big ducks wanted no part of the boat blinds, even with breaking up the shape.... Read More
I need some tips here fellas. What is the best spread of calls to have around my neck down here ? Right now Ive got the duck commanders Willies camo max, The Duck commanders hen teal and a woodie call. What else should I carry ? Thanks guys and good luck
It's been so good I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming or in heaven. It all started on Nov. 14th when I went out to my camp out of Bayou Black Marina with the family and friends. Hunted Fri. thru Sunday and for the most part everyone took their duck limits back to the camp. Go to hunt with my wife, daughter and nephew which made it all the better. After the hunt we either....

We had a nice hunt on the bayou Thursday (11/21). I had an invite to hunt with a buddy that kills a couple of hundred ducks every year off of the bayou. When he told me he killed that many I was hesitant to believe it, but I came around after this trip.
It was foggy and gross. Variable light wind with mosquitoes drifting here and there. We met at the pre-designated location. It was a.... Read More
First split started out with a bang and finished with a dud. For the first 3 weekends, we had thousands of ducks on our property with limits coming very easily on each hunt. This week,however, the birds seem to have moved on with this cold weather. Hunted Wednsday - Sunday - Killed 4 limits on wednsday, then from thursday - sunday struggled to kill in the range of 8-17 birds - never a full 3.... Read More
Hello, I bought a gator tail in September, and I love it, how ever the other morning the low oil light went to flashing and it said change engine oil, I have changed the oil and now the Chang oil light is still flashing how do I reset it? Thanks in advance and hope the second split is better!!!
I just recently noticed that LWF website no longer has the map for the limited access area for Pass A Lout. When I refered to this years handbook it simply states refer to WMA map. So my question is, Does Pass A Loute still have a Limited Access area? Or has it been removed and just not been made public? I am headed there during the second split, so any reports from that area would be helpful.... Read More
Need some advice from you guys. I hunt a lease and some public land. Lease has been hit or miss. Did really good last weekened on public. This past weekened and today we saw a lot of Greys flying high on both property's. Blow duck call and they keep on moving. Don't blow call and they keep on moving. Duck weed growing in ponds. Seems like all good conditions. We put out 2 to 3 dozen decoys on.... Read More
