Gotta report de good with de bad and bad is operative word; as far as what I can tell, most of LA is enduring yet another sub-par duck season and Bayoubob and another diehard duck hunter each had to go out of state for decent duck hunts.Hurts dat the local and not-so-local duck scene no where near what it should be.Got report from Bayoubob regarding some awesome hunts in SW Texas and another report from of all places,Enid,Oklahoma and both hunters had stellar hunts and kidded with Bayoubob bout getting spoiled with phenomenal hunts Mon and Tues and reality hit us both smack in de face today,hunting NShore Marsh.The feed scenario is more than incredible,had strong front dat SHOULDA helped and today was a pitiful showing,kinda the new norm and I was lucky to emerge with nice drake blue wing,one of two that dive-bombed me and when I went to retrieve lil jewel,four mallards suddenly appeared and being in pirogue retrieving duck did NOT help!!!Only had one other shooting opportunity,did not cash in on gift of four greys and dat was all she wrote!!!Gonna seek yet another possible spot tomorrow,getting ole watching MT Skies,hoping something shows up and Feds in airboat did NOT stir single duck,sad,sad,even more sad.Guess we better shell out plenty buck$ to go outta state to shoot ducks,pitiful situation,no end in sight!!!

Mandevillian,sick of MT Skies here but bountiful in other states!

Bout 6-7 years ago was extremely fortunate to get invited on all-expense paid 7 day hunt trip in Devil's Lake NDakota and still think about those epic mallard hunts,killed one huge Canada goose on second-to-last day and it was more than incredible the amount of waterfowl we saw and shot!!!LA is probably the LAST place a duck intends to head to,given what is taking place,100% legal,up the Flyway and Bayoubob is convinced the MS Flyway has been altered so much that ducks that USED to frequent LA now populate Texas and way W of here,guess we either get used to MT Skies or plunk down seriou$ coin to hunt what USED to be here.Can't blame the outta town outfitters,they gotta make a living and AT OUR EXPEN$E!!!
