Well,well,seems de Nuck and Futz Duck Busters might be catching a huge break in the form of unbelievable offer to hunt the SE Arkansas club of fellow Sportsman who USED to hunt Big Branch Marsh and has been following my reports and guess he feels sorry for us with all de hard work,preparation,dedication,etc we routinely put in and bust it de ole-school way,transporting Chapman pirogues well into interior ponds where we USED to pound out some quality ducks.Got back to this fellow and will exchange contact info and see what we can arrange.Bayoubob and I purposely delayed our launch this am to await rainstorms and launched de ole but extremely reliable SouthFork round 6:30 am,heard some shooting,spooked plenty,plenty teal,mottled ducks,etc and we each hunted separate ponds and neither of us emerged with anything.Did have group of 6 mallards looking like dey wanted to listen to some mallard music but dey decided to land over 300 yards away!!!Got perhaps a few more Big Branch hunts in de ole body and looking very forward to change of pace in form of Arkansas trip!!!Good luck to all duck hunters,whether they hitting Delacroix,Hopedale,Venice,etc.Got pockets of ducks in all dem areas,none concentrated as far as I can determine!!!
