De Nuck,Futz,Gerard Duck Busters once again hit de NShore Marsh and emerged with a total of 7 ducks,lost nice mature drake grey and whiffed on a few teal,rusty,rusty,rusty from not enough shooting opportunities.Hit nice area not far from Sunday's hunt and emerged with 3 green wing teal,compliments of Nuck,and Futz and Gerard shot 4,consisting of my two least-favored ducks,scaup and spoonies and Gerard cashed in on fine hen grey dat was quacking up a storm as she came in very nicely.Did have fine ole mallard hen,think she liked raspy DC wooden call and had the typical teasing from fine mottled ducks,landing about 80 yards out!!!Quit early as nautical weather in form of big thunderboomers headed our way and we got in vehicles and headed out just as rain came down!!Doggone nylon strap on boat winch snapped and we tied her off and I made an Academy run,ran into fellow NShore Delta Waterfowl Committee member and we exchanged Thanksgiving pleasantries and might trade out hunts!!!Happy Thanksgiving to all and back at it tomorrow,hope to nab some greys and they like certain spots,hope dey like where we plan to be!!!

Not a bad haul! I was at Academy precisely when that heavy rain came through Slidell, about 9am. Buddy of mine was deer hunting in the area and said he heard some shots at daybreak.

Gadwall,Thanks but I am not enamored with ducks like spoonies and scaup and had we held off on those,we woulda emerged with 3 fewer ducks(Wifey is the one who complains about those fishy ducks).She makes exceptional gumbo with ANY duck but with spoonies and scaup,she boils them in brine solution three times,tossing out the oily water from these ducks and the meat gets somewhat bland.With teal,greys,mallards,mottled ducks,wideons,etc she does not have to take de extra step of brining the ducks and if you do it right,each specific duck has its own distinctive flavor.Woodies may be the best with a nutty flavor,presumably from their diet and widgeons are excellent with a totally different flavor.We keep wanting to get a client of ours to lend a hand in wild game cookbook with illustrations but something ALWAYS gets in the way.Ya mighta been in Covington Academy same time as me and I did see one of the Delta Waterfowl Committee Members and he told me how successful the recent NShore Delta Waterfowl Banquet was.Think we had 175 people in attendance,awesome turn-out,indeed!!!
