Can anyone help me out on bayou savage? Im looking to take my brother to kill his first duck and all I have is a 14ft flat and a trolling motor for us to go in. Is bayou savage wma accessible with that? And is it worth me taking him out there over the areas I know? I've never been to bayou savage. Thanks for any help. Email me at djreb93@yahoo.com if you don't want to comment

Bayou Savage
How old is your brother? In order to hunt Bayou Savage you MUST have a youth hunter age 15 years or younger with you. I believe the days it is open are Wed, Thur, Sat, and Sunday (closed the rest). Bayou Savage is a federal refuge (not a state ran WMA) so check out the regs on their site before you head out that way. Hunting is only allowed outside of the levee system (no hunting inside the levees such as between Hwy 11 and Interstate 10). There is some good hunting between Venetian Isles and Lake P. There is a launch on Hwy 90 between Hwy 11 and the Chef where you might be able to access some areas to hunt if you only have a trolling motor. Big Branch refuge might be your better bet since you do not have an outboard. Lots of people hunt near Salt Bayou (Fritchie Marsh) with pirogues only and in Lacombe and around Bayou Liberty.
