No one that I know of except for a few guides doing much of anything and guide that is doing well,Proud Pop,working his fanny off putting his clients on as many good ducks as he reasonably can and they hunt Delacroix on private and leased land with permanent blinds and I know works very hard at it!!Talked to business partner that has lease in Delacroix,one in Pointe a la Hache and access to rice fields(not sure exactly where)and they are working ridiculously hard for a handful of scaup,very,very few greys,some teal and pintails but not that many.I have been hunting about as hard as I can,hunting exclusively Federal Land and have killed quality not quantity and may be getting average of possibly one duck per hunt,miserable results but keep keeping on,hoping for better results(know the definition of insanity being repeating de same thing over and over,expecting different results)!!!Jokingly started calling Bayoubob and I,Nuck and Futz,and de Nuck and Futz Duck Busters headed out tomorrow and Th headed to pristine spots in NShore Marsh,more feed than any spot I have ever hunted in my duck-hunting career(about 20 years)and have heard tons of stories about the glorious days of Manchac and Joyce and Maurepas,sad to see de destruction and wish we could get together to restore those formerly pristine marshes to where dey should be-gotta be a way to release weevils to destroy salvinia.Glad to report it is not a problem where we hunt and I chat with Mike Downey,Jr,one of the Fed Agents that manage Big Branch Marsh and advise him what I see on hunts in Big Branch,thus far not an issue with salvinia,thank God!!Hope dis ridiculously frigid weather brings us something other than scaup!!Happy New Year to all and not going down without a fight and will pray that we see some decent ducks tomorrow!!
