Dates Hunted September 23 - 24:

Three of us hunted the same spot in the Southeast Louisiana marsh this weekend and the hunting was a lot better than last weekend. The tide for the weekend was a little above normal with very little wind at the start of the hunt Saturday. Fortunately the breeze and the ducks flying picked up as the hunt went on. We ended up shooting 15 teal for the day.

Sunday there was a breeze early on but a few less teal on the move for some reason. We had a good shoot coming out with 11 for the day. Overall it was a good weekend in the marsh. We hunted until 9:00am each day.

Side bar: There were about half the tree ducks in our area this weekend compared to last weekend for some reason. I don't claim to know why but that is what is saw.

Mileypop,Fishing buddy of mine(recently re-igniting duck hunting passion)has reported great results with some of his buddies,hunting a Delacroix lease.He shot 4 on his last hunt with them(with better shooting,said he shoulda easily shot his 6-teal limit)and his hunting partners shot their 6-teal limit per hunter!Me and Bayoubob hitting a different locale in NShore Marsh tomorrow and Th and hope our change of venue pays dividends!!!Can't wait to bow hunt Sunday and have to do some work on my deer feeder motor(install new one and new solar charging panel)and hope to catch few game cam pics of fine herd of deer I have been supporting quite a few years!!!

Bayoubob and I hit as pristine an area as ya gonna find anywhere and all we saw were a very few woodies(had drake soar past us as we were hunkered down in natural Roseau cane patch,enhanced with tall palmetto branches to hide us,standing alongside our Chapman pirogues)and we saw zero teal,had a fine but very immature drake woodie swim in our decoy spread and feed on incredibly thick aquatic grass so prevalent everywhere we have hunted.Gonna try yet another area tomorrow possibly gonna be de ticket and can't be any worse(unless we see zero woodies,mottled ducks,Mexican squeelers,etc,anything but what we are targeting!!!).Just got Fed Ex notification dat Beretta Extrema being delivered by end of day tomorrow,just in time possibly for teal hunt Sat.She gonna be mighty-fine with her tight-fitting custom-made Shadow Grass Blades water-transfer clothes!!!
