I'm an avid waterfowl hunter and i mostly do my hunting in the marshes of southeast la, particularly in the marshes of northwest terrebonne parish. I hunt in a beautiful freshwater marsh and we mostly kill ringnecks, redheads,canvasbacks and bwt. I was driving through cameron towards to coast and through johnsons bayou this week and noticed that they have a lot of beautiful freshwater marshland.... Read More
Who would be a good contact person with regards to a waterfowl lease in the chauvin area? I have a lease in bayou black, but am looking for secondary lease on saltwater marsh for a look at a variety of ducks other than ringnecks/redheads/canvasbacks. We had an incredible season in bayou black, but majority of our bags were divers. Any information would be great! Thanks! JOoJ
Just getting back from the lease in bayou black and there aren't many ducks to speak of. Our lease is holding maybe 30 bwt and a couple grey ducks. Anyone in the bayou black area seeing in concentrations of ducks?
Went to the lease in Orange Grove this weekend to start dressing some blinds and saw a few ducks.
Saw 5 small flocks of ringnecks, around 50 teal, a couple flocks of greys. Very encouraging compared to last season where we didn't see a duck opening weekend. Didn't kill one until the end of the first split if i remember right. Everything looks good....the tide was wayyy low!
My property behind the house flooded with all of the rain this week. I went ride to the back this mourn and saw several flocks of bwt. Hopefully i still have some water next weekend. We still don't have any in bayou black, so i will be hunting behind the house hopefully!
Was at the lease in bayou black all weekend and didn't spot any teal. saw a couple hundred wood ducks and a few summer mallards. Lease look pretty good, the salvania is somewhat under control. Hopefully we can get some birds in by the 11th! Anyone out there spot any teal yet?
Anyone else in the bayou black area having problems w/ giant salvania? We have it, and it is getting pretty bad. We have boomed off certain areas so it doesn't get into all of our lease. We have tried the weevles, but they don't seem to be working. Is there any chemical that kills this stuff because 2 4d and roundup doesn't do anything to it.
Finally got a few birds. Had a 5 man limit by 8:15 this mourning. Mostly ringnecks, with a few teal mixed in. Have a concentration of about 5-7 thousand ringnecks on our lease along with the 50 or so teal. Lots of poul do also. Second split opener has already been better than the whole first split.
Hunted lease in bayou black this mourning and didn't shoot a shot. Third hunt this year and it is the third scratch this year. This mourning was the worst, I only saw 3 teal, nothing flying high. Still have an abundance of pouldo. Im gonna try again friday, if nothing, them im gonna turn into a deer hunter.
Worst weekend in the history of our lease in bayou black. 11 ppl hunting both saturday and sunday and not one duck killed. Saw a couple of flights of ringnecks and teal, but nothing came near us. Ponds are loaded with feed and pouldos. Going back on Wed, hopefully with more success.
Just got back from the lease. Went make sure the camp is ready for the weekend and that the blinds and decoys are ready to go. Everything was perfect except for the fact that we don't have any ducks. Not 1 ZERO, not even a teal or a summer mallard. We do have a couple hundred pouldo, but that doesn't really motivate me very much. We will see come saturday though.
