We have tons of cormorants. I've always wondered why they were protected anyway. Seems like we could have some fun shooting them while helping our fisheries out at the same time. WIN WIN!

In case you have never seen a pair of Greater Scaup I believe I have a photo of a pair. They were in the canal alongside Hwy 27 just south of the Wetland Walkway (Sabine National Wildlife Refuge) Saturday afternoon.

Pictures here http://tfinnie.blogspot.com/

Please let me know if you feel they are not Greater Scaup.

Who ever gets the DU magazine please read the latest issue then tell me that DU has nothing to do with helping rice farmers with flooding schedules and habitat management work. Then get on the website and search DU projects and tell me how many are in southeast LA,(8-10 since DU inception) most are close to Mississippi and Arkansas. Then look up how much money DU collects from Louisiana per.... Read More

I am looking to join a waterfowl lease or lease a blind in the Pecan Island, Mermentau River, Grand Cheneir area. I would like something big enough for about four people to hunt.

We need a later season. Period.

First let's talk about data. What has data given us? It's 'data' that has totally screwed up the gulf red snapper season. Data is not perfect. What counts is what is being seen by living, breathing people. Compare data to what is really happening in the field, then, make decisions.

All the talk about seeing more ducks in Feb. because of less.... Read More

With all the griping and complaining, one could only assume that their will be a lot of leases coming available for this upcoming season. With that said, I've been trying to acquire another lease in Terrebonne parish, but haven't had much luck. I love my current lease, but would like to get something else in the brackish water. A gray duck or two would be nice every once in a while! So guys,.... Read More

I just read a great article written by Todd Masson in a recent Times Picayune concerning the past poor season despite great local conditions. The article included ideas about why it was poor especially in the SE part of the state. Included in this article was information from Larry Reynolds about the past season. Also he sheds a light on the future of duck hunting in the whole state of.... Read More

The Gadwall Duck is an attractive and welcome duck for waterfowl hunters.

Additionally, someone informed me there is a DU Duck Calendar for SW Louisiana Region. I am considering donating some waterfowl images for this project but have no idea of who to speak with / contact. Any ideas?

See http://tfinnie.blogspot.com/ for picture.

Mr. Reynolds,
From the post by bloodandguts we all seem to recognize a problem. This is the best conversation I’ve read on this website since the debate started. Could you convince the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries to conduct a study basing it on the three zones breaking down the biggest issues in each? I believe we have some of the same problems in the three zones but also some different.... Read More

'Oil behemoths BP and Chevron dumped toxic waste - including some radioactive material - from their drilling operations into coastal waters, claims Louisiana parish Plaquemines in a lawsuit removed to federal court Thursday.'

You can google this. It's all over the Web. My guess is Gadwall and teal stay away from radioactive waste.

It is not the most glamorous duck by far but is unique in its own way.

I would not support this in any fashion! DU has done so much for the ducks and there rich partners to have the finest habitat and hunting around that the common man ( who makes up most of there membership) has got less and less area to hunt. Go to Paducah Ky and other places like this where top executives and area presidents of DU are catered to. Take a look at the DU projects that have caused.... Read More
