Wounded Warrior Hunt
Our Teal hunting is still going strong on several of our properties. We are not seeing the many, many thousands like the first week of the season, but still plenty for easy limits. We had the pleasure of hosting our annual Wounded Warrior hunt Tuesday night for the Wednesday morning Teal hunt.
Only one of the soldiers had ever been duck hunting, the others had never shot at a duck. After an hour or so of skeet shooting at the lodge Tuesday afternoon they were pretty well dialed in.
For the Wednesday morning hunt, they defended the blind to the tune of 28 Teal - a seven man limit. Not bad for rookies! My group shot four green wings this morning along with 24 blue wings. We saw several flocks of pintail, spoons and the first flock of Greys I’ve seen this year. It was a fun hunt! One of the soldiers mentioned it’s nice to shoot at things that don’t shoot back, kind of makes you think for a minute what they have been through. We enjoyed having them and look forward to next year’s group!

Happy Soldiers

Of the couple of hundred Teal killed so far, we have only shot two green wings and no bands yet!

They are here!
Just wanted to give a quick report from the rice belt of Southwest Louisiana. We have been out in the field the last several getting our farms ready to hunt. I have not seen Teal like this in at least 10 years! From what we've seen there are large concentrations of Teal around Lake Arthur over to Thornwell and up towards Welsh. It looks like it should be a great Teal season for this area. Good Luck to everyone and have fun!

We do have a few days available:

We have a last minute opening for this Saturday night January 7th to hunt on Sunday the 8th. We have room for a group of nine hunters. The group that was scheduled is unable to come due to last minute work conflicts. This is the only open date we have for the rest of the season. I am offering this at a reduced rate of $425 per person for lodging meals and the guided hunt. This is $100 off our normal rate.

I have not been posting this season because we have literally been too busy and not had any openings! That is a good problem to have. Our hunting has been very consistent for Specklebellies and much better than last year for ducks. We are also killing more snows and blues than last year.

Hope everyone else is having a good season so far, I really have not had a chance to read the other reports on here to see how others are doing.

Louisiana Outfitters Waterfowl Hunts
Can there possibly be a better time of year? The trout and redfish are biting like crazy, its football season, and best of all…. It’s almost Duck Season!! Just a little more than two weeks left until we will be shooting Ducks and Specks!

We enjoyed an excellent season last year thanks to lots of Specklebellies, our loyal customers and our hard working staff. For this upcoming season, we only have three weekend dates open in the first split (November 20, 26, 27) along with a few open weekdays. The second split is similar with very few weekend dates open and just a handful of weekdays available.

If you are thinking of scheduling a duck and goose hunt, now is the time to get your group together. For those considering a guided hunt for the first time, we would like a chance to earn your business. We rely heavily on repeat clients and word of mouth. So this is about the only advertising we do.

All of the early indicators point to a very good season, the duck numbers are all up, the goose numbers are also up from last year. If the amount of Specklebellies already here is any indication of the season, it should be great! I have seen more juvenile Specks over the last few weeks than I can remember this early, looks like they had a great hatch.

We specialize in corporate groups of up twelve hunters with all inclusive packages comprising of clean comfortable lodging, excellent meals and professionally guided hunts. We also cater to smaller groups of families and friends. We are fully insured and licensed by the United States Coast Guard and the State of Louisiana. Both corporate and individual references are available.

Louisiana Outfitters Teal Hunts-
The Teal are just starting to show up on our properties. The first major push of birds to our area normally takes place in about another week to 10 days. Then we have another big migration around the full moon in September (the 12th). We have pumps running on several of our farms creating habitat. We run the fully guided Teal hunts on 3,000+ acres of prime rice fields in Jeff Davis, Cameron and Vermillion Parishes in Southwest Louisiana. I am hearing reports already of really strong Teal numbers to the north. It should be a great season!
