Finally got short window of opportunity to chase some Coastal Zone ducks ahead of E Zone Opener(gonna miss E Zone Opener!!!)and did get a nice tease in form of very fine pair of mature greys that responded to calling,circled like dey wanted in and doggone coot colony in front of me got antsy and started splashing around and looked to me like dat spooked dem greys and they went toward Nuck but still did not cooperate.He did bag nice drake blue wing and dat was it for our Pearl River WMA duck hunt.Chatted with fellow at launch dat said he managed some widgeons so all not lost,at least for those fortunate hunters dat managed to bag a few.Did chat with Darren Digby,he hunted his Delacroix lease and he advised dat de pickings down in Delly slim and slimmer,bummer.In fact,pickings so slim,he going elsewhere besides NShore for EZone Opener.Dat says a lot and guess gotta hope and pray dat we get a few strong fronts to shove down some ducks and personally,where I hunt there are typically more mallards than anywhere else and why not target some green!!!Hope and pray dat Arkansas freezes up soon and we get influx of mallards,at least in certain hard-to-access spots!!Good luck to all this EZone Opener.Might have to have more than luck to make decent hunts this season,yet again!!!
