Can anyone give me any details on the Harry Bourg marsh? Im about to buy a permit to duck hunt there. Im hoping its not a huge bust. I live in Baton Rouge but one of my close family just bought a small camp in cocodrie and have access to it pretty much whenever we want so i was thinking the harry bourg marsh would be nice and close to where we can stay at the camp and wake up to go duck hunting. If anyone has any comment or input on this area please help me out! thanks guys and god bless

We have a camp in Dularge and Harry Burg is only about 10 minutes from the camp. All I know is the permit is $300 a year to hunt Harry Burg. I have few Uncles that hunt there and they did pretty good last year. It just depends year to year. Some years are better than others, but there are definately more ducks on the Harry Burg property than the surrounding marsh. I'm not sure who you have to contact, but if I find out I'll let you know. Just keep in mind that the water gets extremly low back there late winter.

Google Harry Bourg and there is a link to print out an application. I am considering doing the same but I can't find a map of where the property lies. There were lots of big ducks down that way but they were not prolific until very late in the season. If you get a map, please post it.

I know that some Harry Bourg property surrounds Bayou Labutte, but I'd like to see a map of the whole thing and check it out before I sign up.

tons of ducks no more!
I hunted that property for several years with mixed results. back in the 'day' the amount of ducks was unreal but salt water intrusion and subsidence has altered the marsh a bit. It no longer holds any type of feed what so ever. The mottled duck population in that area has also crashed not to mention you can only shoot one a day now. It really isn't worth the money you have to pay to hunt that area anymore. Ducks dont stay there because there is no food. You may have a good hunt every now and then around a front but the shooting only lasts a day then the ducks are gone. The second split gets really hard out there because all the water gets sucked out with the north winds then good luck even getting close to your blind. I have been hunting the wax the last several years and the amount of ducks out that way is unreal. You really have to do some scouting and put in some time but the results can be rewarding. Good luck

thanks guys i got a map for the place and i think before i pay for the permit i am going to have to drive down and take a look at the property. If the property has no feed anywhere then it is definately not worth it
