Guys this weather call for an old "Paul Dudek Hypothermia Alert." Everyone who is hunting this weekend please take precaution. Don't do anything stupid. Carry some extra clothes and if you get wet, GET HOME!!! Don't want to read about anyone in the paper.
Not many ducks in Dularge. Reports were bad saturday and the saturday afternoon looked like sunday. Everyone was leaving. Most people didn't hunt sunday. We picked up a new lease this year that no one has hunted in a couple of years. There is a hole on it that has been holding birds. We killed 18 greys by 6:50 saturday. Went back this morning and got our 18 for around 10am. 36 greys on open opening weekend on limited birds. Exstatic about that! Tooka my 16 month old lab was on the money saturday. 12 marks, 6 blinds only 1 blind reqired 2 whistles. Had her first encounter with a pissed off quacking hen and only got her more fired up. I was worried about that. Last duck of the day was a quacker and a diver, she stayed in the area and handled it beautifully. Couldn't wipe the smile off my face. Mako, my friends 2 year old dog, was outstanding today.
Tooka's second hunt today. Lots of teal. Picked up 9 birds. She actually saw 3 fall out of the sky this morning. One Perry shot landed 5 feet from her! Some blinds 30 yards into the grass. 3 cold blinds as I had her sit while we were being bomdared. Very happy about the work today. Shes getting the idea.
Saturday was a dawning of a new era. Last year on Dec 7th I lost my hunting dog Jessy. i know everyone thinks they have the greatest dog so I will let other people tell about that. In July her last littermate had her last litter and I got the pick. I wanted a yellow female, she only had 2 females a black and chocolate. I took the black. Her name is Tooka, my grandmothers nckname as a little girl. Saturday she picked up her first bird! She's going to be a good dog.
Does anyone know if the repair has been finalized on the hole in the levee on the reserve in Montegut? I went through it about 6 weeks ago and they had it half way closed.
Anybody teal hunting across Lake DeCade?
Hey guys, I know it's late but my uncle just called and told me about this article. Is teal season closed on these WMA's? Read the 5th paragraph from the bottom & tell me what you think. It would be typical to announce this the day before it opens.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Smiles were a rare commodity in south Louisiana this time last year.
There wasn't much to feel good about. The most destructive hurricane in U.S. history left deep scars in southeast Louisiana. And, there was another storm, Hurricane Rita, on the way to ravage the coastal communities Katrina missed.
Not that duck hunting mattered much then, but thousands of duck hunters wondered aloud just how much of the coast was left to support the teal that were already winging their way to Louisiana's marshes.
The nine-day September teal season came and went without its usual fanfare. Yes, there were hunts, successful hunts, but the worst lay ahead. Residual saltwater covered every coastal parish and killed valuable food sources over-wintering ducks used to carry them through their migration.
Duck hunters are wearing more smiles today: Beginning Friday, they have a chance to take a break from the doom and gloom of the recovery.
And, they have 16 days to do it, a two-week-plus stretch that's bringing more sunshine into their lives than any government handout program.
The 16 days means teal numbers should be up. Last year's nine-day season meant there were fewer teal on the breeding grounds than any time since the early 1990s.
And, from what folks are seeing Mother Nature is quicker about her work than residents are when it comes to restoring their south Louisiana environs.
"In late April when we flew over the coastal parishes the marshes looked like a desert," said state Fur and Refuge Division administrator Phil Bowman. "Some areas looked like the moon. I swear it looked like we were looking at the moon."
Not now. A six-week period of midsummer rains broke a months-long drought, and Bowman said public hunting wildlife management areas are well into post-storms recovery cycles.
The good news is that these areas are in southeast and south-central Louisiana — Biloxi, Pass a Loutre, Salvador-Timkin, Pointe-aux-Chenes and the Atchafalaya Delta WMAs. Bowman noted Marsh Island and State Wildlife WMAs, Rockefeller Refuge, Terrebonne and the St. Tammany Ridge areas will be closed to teal hunting.
"Salvador-Timkin looks good. The habitat is in good shape. Pass a Loutre has some submerged aquatics growing and the Atchafalaya Delta looks pretty good. The submerged aquatics are coming back there," Bowman said. "We're seeing plants like wild celery, pigweed and wild millet sprouting in many places and all those are good for waterfowl."
He said the LDWF has identified problems at Pointe-aux-Chenes, problems such as "... the lack of submerged aquatic (vegetation) and the vegetation is not regenerating," and that the work is slow on repairing ring levees in water management units there.
Still, even in southwest Louisiana where there was so much saltwater overrunning, Bowman said conditions are far above what most expected.
"Overall, the habitat on a 1 to 10 scale is about a 6 or a 6 1/2," Bowman said. "All things considered, that's pretty good."

Scouted Montegut yesterday. I saw 6 teal & 5 were in a flock together. Very little feed out there right now. Earlier in the summer there were grass mats in the ponds, they have all dissapeared. I hope its not a replay of last year. Good number & no food. Anyone dove huniting Pointe-aux-chenes?
Sorry guys, I know somebody asked this a while back, but I cant Find it. I just had a gun box made for my go devil. What are the procedures for painting aluminum?
