Duckless & Hopeless

Saturday, the weather for duck hunting was perfect. North wind 15mph, cloudy skies, 50ish. It was so perfect that even with the previous dismal hunts, I had hope! I knew that a new batch of birds would blow in for a couple of days, at least until they realized they were starving. The sky started to brighten and low and behold a bird flew into the decoys, bang & we were ready for that great day. Three hours passed and other than a very few flyers at great distances, flying in a straight line, the sky were devoid of ducks. Even the marsh hawks abandoned the area. After throwing in the towel, I went to the other side of the pond to realize the bird I shot was a Coot. Add insult to injury. My buddy and I have come to the conclusion that the season is over for us. Best of luck, Elsewhere!

No Ducks Either
Milton I fill your pain! Same thing for us over in New Iberia Parish. Not even seeing any more ducks. And just north of us 40 or so miles in Port Barre they are banging out limits almost every morning. We have good water and feed but no ducks! I have heard the same thing from hunters all around our area. Good Luck till the end of the season
