Honey Island/NShore Marsh Bummer Part II 12 22 19

After yesterday's promising scout/hunt trip after an unsuccessful Honey Island Woodie hunt,figured repeat of same game plan might yield slightly different results!!!Wrong,wrong,more wrong.The Honey Island Woodie hunt might have been better had I spotted fine pair of woodies making bee-line for my dekes but they veered off,landing about 70 yards out,flooded big-time,maybe with lower water a few cypress islands that are NOT submerged might pan out.Took exactly one shot at pair streaking through the trees and failed to connect-met two young hunters who ALMOST got 4-wheel drive Jeep stuck!!Hit NShore Marsh and chatted with two hunters headed back to launch,think they had some redheads and told me there were a few hanging around plus a nice trophy greenie(I am way behind my typical greenhead haul/year)and I set up in incredible natural blind that I supplemented with palmetto branches.Hoped that nice flock of greys I spotted yesterday stuck around but I left around 11:30,more than bummed out and texted wingman,Bayoubob,that I was unfortunately tossing in de towel,at least for the time-being and hitting fine deer stand,overlooking incredible food plot and deer feeder and have ample videography dat plenty does and bucks hanging round,hope to thin out dat herd pronto!!!Check out blind-think it was so well-concealed dat ducks could not find me!!!

Steelsprayer,Yep de key ingredient surely is missing and I hunted just a tad N and E of there Sat,saw a nice flock of greys headed straight for that area,don't blame em as the grass is ridiculously thick there as well as most areas out there!!!Did chat with two hunters that were headed back to the launch Sun and they shot a few redheads,gladly take that diver vs scaup anyday!!!Guess I will hit deer stand about as hard as I been hitting non-existent ducks!!!Sux big-time,hardly worth the time and effort we put into what used to be great sport,now big money controls migrations and NEVER let anyone try to tell ya otherwise,got way too much evidence to prove MIGRATORY MANUPILATIONS!!!
