Pretty solid start to the season, hunting both the Coastal Zone and East Zone Isaac-battered marshes. Weather was treating us pretty good until last week when this warm-up started, glad to see us shut down this week with the warm forecast.

Been doing a lot of post-hunt scouting or afternoon fishing, though most who know me know full well that the binoculars stay in my hand far more than a fishing rod this time of year. Have been moving around about every hunt but really have yet to find any particular 'hole' they're piling into. By moving around we just try to give them a different look each day.

Species breakdown as follows:
64 grays, 5 spoons, 41 GW teal, 1 BW teal, 1 mottled, 1 wigeon, 1 greenhead, 3 buffleheads, 16 dosgris. Total is 133 ducks on 12 hunts, averages out to about 11 birds/hunt. Some days were great, some days we'd have 2-6 and glad to have them. Last Thursday we were covered up in dosgris but opted to let them all pass, not looking to pad numbers, but instead just shot our 6 grays and missed on a few others. Long-range forecast shows better weather a week out so hopefully it cools down by the 15th. good luck out there
