My sons and I were finally able to get together to do a holiday hunt. Meaux(11) crushed the brush to put up 5 limits. Taken with 410, 2 16g and 2 20g. Pic and Mojo given by Dave..
These pics are from 1st wk of January. I have been at work for 2 weeks and will be back for the last weekend (east split)In the era of 3 - 3 1/2' mag for ducks and geese it was a pleasure to watch my son tag more than a few with his 16 A-5. We know its an awesome gun for woodcock and ducks and, if given a chance,will take a few more next week.
Waiting on days off to duck hunt and it's killing me. My brother hunted East Point a la Hache and was back at the camp by 0730 with limits for 4. My son hunted 'my' duck lease in Whiteville and came home with limits for 3 plus a few specks. These pics are from a free dive trip about 2 months ago out of Freshwater City. After brushing the blind we saw a number of woodcock on the trip back home to Lafayette.
Well I got in one more hunt before the rain and the end of the season.Pearl put the evil eye on these and we finished in about 1 hour.Lloyd, I saw your truck,how did you do? Good luck to all until next year,I have some pictures other than todays.
Got back before the season closed.We had a pretty decent hunt in the basin .The dogs worked well and we shot well,even the old Lawyer in the glasses.Steve is from another hunt 2 days before.He is an att also.
Went to Indian Bayou today,man was it hot.It felt like summer time.We managed to flush about 10 but only came out with 2.Lost a bird for the first time this year.My Boykin and Lab hunted hard in the area it fell and my Boykin dug in a Armidillo hole for 10 min.She doesn't mess with them so we figured the bird went into it.She almost crawled all the way in,looked like a cartoon with the mud flying in Kennons face as he tried to get a closer look.2 or 3 other bird hunters were near us and headed the way we wanted to go so we zigged the other way.Didn't hear any more shots from them. We tried a new field, and flushed another 3 or 4 more.Met another bird hunter in the parking area, that was going to try a 1 1/2 in,as we were leaving.Good luck Lyd.Man did we make a dent in some 4'' saplings,I thought Widgeon6 was Paul Bunyon for a while,that bird lives for another day.
We had a good day hunting the Basin,it was warm but the birds were in.Going to try Tuesday with 2 friends again.Good luck to all.
Took a short trip to ThistleW at 10 am.I hunted for 45 min and limited on some birds and an extra tree rat.I went yesterday with Tim A. to Sherburn and he limited out and I missed 4.I only flushed 3 today, but that was enough.I'll try again tomorrow with one of my sons.Widgeon06 if you want to go call me or post here.I really haven't found a lot but that changes 1 day to the next.We went duck hunting east of Widgeon6 lease about 6 miles 2 days ago and look at these pictures of Michael and some ducks
We hunted in blue bird skies and had a good day.The birds worked Tim's calls and Michael shot a few Mallards.Now if only the woodcock will show up.
Woodcock hunted in the basin today with Michael,Elliott,John T. and Steve W. One Golden,One Lab and a Boykin.The birds were not what we expected ,after the cold nite.Came out with 7 birds and 1 rabbit.Was going to try ThistleW but tried Ind.Bay.Met a few others Steve P's 2 boys were also there.They shot only 2 with there Britt and a squirrel.Very Very dry,no water even in ditches that I have never seen dry in 5 yrs.I'll be trying back at Sherb& ThistleW.It's a long walk between the Levee and the river at I.B. I need a break and cold weather
Hunted in the basin this morning with my Boykin and Lab.It took a while but I did limit out.Flushed 4 shot 3.All were shot in ox tail.I'll be back again with my three sons and a friend tomorrow.Maybe in Sherburn,another friend is making an afternoon hunt there.If he does well I may try there.Met 2 other young men at the check out and talked a while,they zigged when they should have zagged,but they said they will be back at it tomorrow also.
