Hey guys I haven't been able to get out on catahoula since the rain Sunday and the front has come through. Just wonder what the water level is like and if it's pushed more birds in etc. I was out last week and saw a good many thanks.
I shot this cinnamon teal at the wax this morning. It was flying solo. Needless to say I was pumped and plan on getting it mounted. I was curious if anyone knew the numbers of cinnamons killed in Louisiana each year?
