Making the Best of it in Delacroix

As a Louisiana duck hunting guide, you learn year after year to deal with what Mother Nature throws your way. Some years we have lots of rain, some years we have lots of wind, and some years we have lots of ducks. This is not one of those years for ducks but we sure have had lots of rain. It’s my job as a guide to figure out what to do when the ducks just don’t show up like they have in years past. Every night before I go to bed my mind is racing thinking about Louisiana duck hunting.

What I have don’t this year is really try to hunt where the ducks want to be. In theory, that sounds simple but on a year where duck numbers are low this can be quite the challenge. It involves me covering a lot of ground to check my different properties. I have to constantly be on the move to figure out where the ducks want to hang out for a few days. We have made the best of our opportunities when I put my Louisiana duck guide clients in the blind. Some days we shoot lots of bluebills and some days we shoot teal. I am always trying to find the Gadwall but they have been in short supply this year. We did shoot TWO banded bluebills in one hun though. That was pretty awesome.

We’ve had some really great hunts. If you just count numbers, then this has not been our best year, but with a lower duck hatch this year and the lack of cold weather to force migration, we are having a pretty good year. I just love duck hunting so I put a lot of work into making a great experience for my clients. I have even had some clients shoot a few ducks and head out on a fishing trip with me. The fishing is almost always good here so a blast and cast trip is never a bad idea.
