Saturday no water no hunts, Sunday water came back up, 3 hunters, Boat 1 me saw a few Teal didn't fire the gun, Boat 2: 2 hunters, 2 Teal less 1 that the resident eagle decided he or she needed more that they did, the one thing I can say is Larry Reynolds report on the 4 NOLA/Caernarvon Lines that they flew is true. One report from down the river and they shot birds, early limits. Still enjoyed the trip with friends in our Southeast Louisiana Marsh

mulletsquisher,Got bout as much duck action as I did and think my best course of action,for the time-being,is to target Honey Island woodies and forget Marsh hunting,at least until ducks magically show up OR I get invited to hunt Venice,where ducks HAVE shown up.Hitting deer stand about as hard as I can til otherwise ducks decide dey making it worth my time and effort.Thank God I do not have lotta money tied up in duck leases,mudboats,etc.Got enough tied up in pirogues,flatboat,decoys,customized Beretta,etc!!!Can't get much worse-check out my incredible Public Land natural blind-aint gonna find any nicer blind on anyone's private lease!!!

Mande, yep I and many others have seen the many high's and lows of migration and changes in our wonderous marshes but one thing for sure I'll stay at it and just deer hunt a bit more, can't seem to shake the addition I have to sunrises and scenery of Southeast Louisiana Marsh

We still indeed live in Sportsman’s Paradise and I thank the Lord every day I have breath in my lungs and strength in my arms to not only make the tremendous paddles often necessary but the courage to call out the morons that want to encroach upon me while either enjoying a fishing trip or hunting wood ducks(about the only species of ducks apparently NOT subject to migratory manipulation)in the gorgeous and SPACEOUS Honey Island Swamp. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Mandevillian always gonna call out morons.
