Thanksgiving Weekend Duck Report

Reply
We duck hunted Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All three days were similar type of hunts. We continue to shoot mostly divers, dosgris, redheads, buffleheads and depending on the blind being hunted there can be some tree ducks, grey duck or two with a teal or two. We have not been limiting out but we are not getting skunked either. Happy we are getting some shots because some guys are not. If the dosgris limit was six we could do that easily bit since it is now two per man it is what it is.

It seems the major factor for us shooting the divers is the lack of vegetation in the ponds in our area. The run of hurricanes has wiped out the food source for the puddle ducks. The guys I know who have been shooting the greys etc. have vegetation in the area. We took a boat ride Saturday and areas with feed had a decent amount of ducks and areas without feed had very few if any.

Looks like the course has been set for our 2020-21 duck season for our duck lease. I don't expect conditions or results to change much over the next month. We may have better results on other properties we get a chance to hunt on occasionally.

Picture from Saturday, my son and his friend.

That’s great news because I’m one of the hunters who have not shot. Lol. Maybe this cold front will move some birds into our state and business will pick up.

Hey at least y’all shooting other than coots which is about all I have had to shoot other than pair of greys Thanksgiving Day plus few teal. Might start targeting woodies in Honey Island Swamp. Hoping front shoved few quality birds into our area.

Hunted Saturday I watched hundreds of groups mostly teal several big groups of mallards flying high headed south . Our water level still low . We had a decent hunt done more missing then hitting we was rusty . Seen a lot of ducks hopefully this cold front will help good luck! Killed a few green heads and some woodys felt good to be on the water
