Had a great year hunting around the state, though most hunts made throughout southeast Louisiana marshes, both public and private land. Plenty of miles on the truck, boat and ATV and had some great times with old friends and new. Was lucky enough to hunt Delacroix, Bayou Bienvenue, Chef Pass, Whiteville/Bunkie rice, and Lake Arthur fresh marshes along with various SE La WMA's.

Final tally was 270 ducks on 28 hunts, so averaged a shade under 10 birds per hunt. Most were two-man blinds but also had two solo limits and one 4-man limit. Didn't really chase the geese as much this year, took only 1 speck and no snows or blues.

Species breakdown was as follows: 153 grays, 6 BW teal, 58 GW teal, 14 mallards, 3 buffleheads, 8 mottleds, 10 shovelers, 1 wigeon, 8 dosgris, 7 black-bellied whistlers, 2 pintail.

Like most folks, we saw a ton of grays this season and had a field day with them. Hopefully they come back next year! However, troubling to see one lonely wigeon on the log after taking 35 in 2005-2006 season. Thanks to all who hosted me in different places this year, hope to do it again next fall. Good luck fishin'
