Hunted yesterday and the season long trend continued with a lack of greys and teal in our area. The dosgris saved our season and although we can only shoot three per man they are always fun to shoot. Everyone in the club shot three dosgris yesterday with a few redheads in the mix.

As many have posted and I believe all the planets lined up for us to have a bad year. Less ducks in surveys, lots of rain up the line and El Nino in full effect. We also had a late high tide event before the big duck season that wiped out vegetation in our ponds. Despite the conditions we still hunted hard trying different things throughout the season but you have to have ducks to shoot them.

It was not our year but we always have fun with the group of guys we have in the club and cutting up with the other camps on our road. The ducks are a bonus but we do work hard to get them. We will be at it again next year doing what we like to do.

Yep and I might start hunting in other states as well.Have long-time diehard duck hunting buddy headed to Dallas area to hopefully shoot plenty of mallards and hope he does exceptionally well as locally,probably big waste of time but always enjoy the experience!!Took incredible pics of sunrises and had so many memorable experiences like watching bald eagle land in dead cypress tree not too far from me and plenty of blue herons almost land on top of me,I was typically so well-concealed.Crawfish season not too far away and hoping sac a lait,specks,reds decide to cooperate!!!

One of my diehard duck hunters,Bayoubob,used to hunt the Chef area and he has unfortunately not been with me in Big Branch Marsh in her hay-day,Katrina year was the best,think my son and I had close to 140 ducks on all the hunts that year,mostly mallards,teal,greys,widgeons!!!I barely crossed double-digits this year,incredibly poor!!!

Mandevillian,never giving up!!
