Been perhaps the absolute worst season in my 20 plus years of chasing waterfowl and not sure if I have enough in me to even think about trying this week but probably will get out with the front predicted to increase our wind speed and direction(hope it don't blow all the water outta Marsh!!).Found very few ducks on last few hunts but have seen where they 'want to be' vs where I want them to be and will do my best to make effort,either Wed of Th,to get right on dat proverbial 'X'.Saw nice flock of about 8 head to one particular area and saw what appeared to be fine pair of mottled ducks head to fine pot hole in same general area and did get de ole Southfork back from Chuck Evans and she is again a beast,had fog to contend with Sun and on Sat missed easy shot,Sun did not fire a shell and neither did Bayoubob,hunting a nice pond a good ways from me and Medicare Client(another die-hard).Think we may chase some Honey Island woodies tomorrow,hit the sloughs for tree rats,then tackle some wood work and glass work on antique Chapman pirogue(always joke with de young guns we meet that my Chapman no doubt older than they are and she is plenty serviceable,even after over 32 years of rugged use!!)Least yall shot some ducks and woodies are one of my favorites.
