Missed E Zone Opener and made a decent NShore Marsh with de Nuck,Futz,Gerard Duck Busters today and we were rewarded with decent haul of pair of mallards(called em in from long ways away-they decoyed like fools),mottled duck,blue wing and green wing teal,lost teal,and scaup!Had decent amount of big ducks flying and easily coulda and shoulda had 4 very nice greys and another pair of mallards and more teal(honestly may have 3-man limit with tad better luck).Did have four greys and pair of mallards both set of ducks about to commit but these ducks heard volleys of shots,no where near us but made em skittish,no doubt!!!My situation is that I honestly have not had decent chance to adequately scout but we watched what today's ducks were doing(scouting literally on de fly,pun intended)and hope to cash in on next few hunts and mid-week hunts always much more productive than either Opening Weekend hunts or week end hunts.Lot less pressure on ducks and with the nice big ducks we saw today,can't wait to get after em!!!Probably fishing with Medicare Client this coming Friday and should be cashing in on ducks next Wed,Th!!!Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

That's a great hunt! All I got this weekend was a hen hoodie. Headed back Thursday morning, hope I see more birds in the swamp.

Good deal there. Heard good reports coming from bayou savage and north shore marsh. Good luck with the future hunts.

Thanks,Steelsprayer.We could and should have had no less than 6 more ducks,all quality birds(4 greys about ready to drop in and pair of mallards)and we unfortunately were not able to cash in due to one of the perils of hunting Federal/Public Land and that is plenty of pressure.I saw a fair amount of teal and plenty of both mallards and mottled ducks(very difficult to decoy mottled ducks)and mallards typically respond to calling and the pair we nabbed were a long ways out when I spotted em and hit em hard with DC Countdown,think 2.0 in polycarbonate,call it my ATT call and I can reach out and touch em with dat fine call!Helps when ya can work em in slowly and steadily and I feel fairly confident that a hunt,mid-week,after Thanksgiving,woulda been a memorable hunt with similar situations/scenario.Good luck in Amite Swampwe heard at least 2 pairs of woodies and saw and heard 4 speckled-bellied geese,never a bad sign!!

Proud Pop,Looks like yall got on some ducks as well,congrats!Checked my typically spot-on Weatherunderground and Wed not looking too good.I do not mind hunting in rain but thunderstorms a totally different issue.Maybe I can sneak in tad later start,though looks like thunderstorms predicted til bout 10 and where we hunt,we have to stop at noon!!Got us some fronts coming and even though I did not have the time to adequately scout,we saw where the ducks wanted to be and we were in between their flight paths but fully intend to be on de 'X' next few hunts!!Worst case scenario is I will have plenty of time to chase ducks and fish once Dec 8th rolls around and always favor mid-week hunts when the pressure is much less intese.Sounded like July 4th yesterday!!!
