Nothing but woodies!!!

The Nuck and Futz duckbusters decided to see if de local Marsh held any blue wing rockets and all I saw and all he saw were plenty of woodies(only way to shoot em right now is with de camera)yesterday am.Was well-hidden behind wall of about 12 giant palmetto branches and I had immature pair of woodies invade my space with the male deciding it looked way too good to pass up and he stayed and played in my decoys long enough to allow me plenty of time to get incredible video footage.I watched him preen and filter water though his beek and was ultra-cool to be that well-hidden that he had no idea how close I was too him.Not gonna hunt that area til either teal start to invade it or til Big Duck season arrives.Took Wifey and older son and grandson to last night's Tulane-Houston game and was exchanging texts with Nuck about how terrible a first half we saw and thankfully they righted the ship second half-Go Wave!!!Hope to find some willing participants in local marsh and always use teal season as tune-up for regular season.Still hard to pass up early sunrises,ducks lighting in decoy spreads,seeing plenty gators,etc and in general,scouting for Regular Duck Season.

Yeah I hear you. Only Woodies and hoodies so far in the Amite river swamp. Can't wait until the opener in November.

Ya can have all dem hoodies!!Buddy of mine told me he tried to eat one and it was terrible!!!Wifey gets mad if I try to sneak in spoonies or Dos Gris,she loves it when I arrive with widgeons,greys,mallards,teal and my hope is that this upcoming Duck Season is much better than last two total dud years,we shall see!!!Good luck and anytime I can take a few woodies will gladly do so.The one I videotaped yesterday barely had head feathers but you could clearly see his bill coloration and the beginnings of fine plumage on his head and his mate musta been PHD -educated as she avoided my spread but he hit it like a magnet!Hope always springs eternal and NShore Delta Waterfowl Banquet is this coming Th at Covington Country Club,always a fun event!!
