What a difference a year makes! Lasy year I had my 6 ducks and 15 pool doo by 7:30am. This year only 2 pool doo! Only had 1 shot at a fast and furious Woodie that was on a mission! This is my last year of being able to make a youth hunt so I will be out again tomorrow. You can't shoot anything from your bed! Good luck to everyone!
Went out and got 2 ducks. I managed to kill a nice grey duck. Very decoy shy. I was able to bring one group of greys in using my jerk chord. It brought them in good once they saw the decoys moving. Better than playing video games. All in all this was a great season for me!
Made my first hunt this morning since December 21st. I caught the flu and was out of commision for a good 10 days. I am only 14 years old and I can say that I never want to catch the flu again! Especially during hunting season! Did good this morning despite the fog. Stay safe everyone and the countdown is on. Get out in the marsh while you can!
Since the first split is over for most of Louisiana, let's lay back and relax and share some of the best duck hunting trips you have ever been on.

Made a duck hunt this morning and got 3 ducks. 1 dos gris, 1 redhead, and 1 widgeon. Fog was so thick you couldn't even see the sun! Gnats started biting, time to go! The dos gris has 5 toes on its foot instead of 4. Is this common or uncommon? have any of you guys ever come across a five toed duck before? Thanks.
Went to the lease this morning and had a great hunt! The ducks were coming in like crazy! We wound up with 10 greys, 4 redheads, 4 spoonies, 3 BW teal, 1 GW teal, 1 wood duck, and 1 dos gris. 4 man limit! It was ashame to hear all of those people shooting 15 minutes before shooting time! It urkes my nerves!
Went to the lease with the big boys today and managed to get 18 ducks and 24 poul deu! We had a mixed bag of greys, teal, spoonies, redheads, and 1 greater scaup. Has anyone ever killed a greater scaup in these parts before? I never knew they came here, even this early in the season. Had a great day! Special thanks to my Dad for getting me up and bringing me to the lease, Uncle Chuckie for....
