Placed wood duck box in backyard last year hoping to see a few. Well this AM I look in backyard and 4 (3 drakes and hen) are all over the box, my fence and backyard. Dogs walking around did not bother them. Awesome since this is so close to businesses and major roadway (river is also close). Looks like I will need to put up more. Need to get a few pictures. Boxes own farm are also full.
Time to get those wood duck boxes cleaned out or put out. Observed 2 boxes with birds in them this AM. There were 10 woodies on water in addtion to 4 mottles. Pictures to follow over next few months. Get those boxes out-amazing how they will find them.
Checked pond and found a variety of plants growing. I think they are panicum, ?, banyard grass, flatsedge and yellow nutsedge. Seem to be good seed food for ducks. Second one ? green with cone type seed head. Spotted about 60 ducks this AM -teal and woodies. Good luck to everyone.
Looking for recipes to make different types of boudin and sausage. Thinking of using duck, goose and rabbit. Anyone try something different than the standard deer, pork or wild hog sausages? Chicken boudin?
Just curious on sightings from various regions and compared to last year this time. In the SW Lafayette area I am seeing more ducks still around than last year. Nesting mottles with a few teal in rice fields and fallow fields. Wood ducks in boxes and flying early AM along Golden Grain. Squealers just arrived in flocks over last 2 weeks. Will try to get a few photos and hopefully see a few newly.... Read More
Team Johan harvested gobbler Friday am. 9.5 beard. First bird. Crept out and 10 min later he came running down lane. Good start after downpour in St. Helena. Not a bad couple days with sightings of 12 chickens. Finally got to add photos. His first and I got to see so many on my first hunt. Sent out solo today and got busted by Mr. Tom due to inexperience-them rascals are fast sprinters LOL-2-300.... Read More
Made another hunt to secret spot (getting spoiled hunting so close to home)and got a quick limit. Brother snoozed and got out late after flying stopped. Other brother whiffed on his shots. Geese are stacked on Hwy 35 south and along golden grain and 700. Hunted fog yesterday and managed a couple teal and a goose in klondike. Saw lots of geese and some big ducks this AM with front. A third of the.... Read More
Made a quick timber hunt to try out a loaner from father in law. Only words are SWEEEET. Unfortunately was only able to fire 3 shells LOL. Wood ducks still around in good numbers for late in season. Craws full of rice and acorns. No bands over last few hunts. Plan to build about a dozen more boxes this year and set up for spring. Miss the marsh hunts but loving timber hunts. Geese are in large.... Read More
Made a hunt into flooded timber again and watched a few groups land. Decided to take next couple drakes that came in - 5 minute hunt and left. Will be back to keep harvesting a few. Wood duck boxes in area appear to have exploded the population. Plan to add another dozen or so after the season. Merry Christmas.
Mixed bag of birds after watching 50+ grays and teal pile into decoys before LST. Spoon, ringneck, redhead, wood duck, mottle, greenheads and grays.Wind off lake was fierce. Front moved a bunch of birds around. Great hunt 'B'.
