Pecan island second split

Reply
Opening weekend was up and down for us . Smashed them Saturday with a four man limit. Sunday only three mostly teal and spoonies all weekend and a couple scaup. Best weekend so far.

Saturday was a perfect day for a duck hunt two of us shot 6 ducks. 4 dosgris - 1 wigeon - 1 canvasback. Not a lot flying around in the sky.

Today we went to another lease a friend of mine has and two of us shot 1 pintail and 1 grey duck. Slow times continue.

I guess that’s why they call it hunting and not killing. Every day is different. You won’t know if you don’t try.

Second split opener was like the first split opener where I hunted. Very few birds and none interested. Need a polar vortex to drive all the birds south.

saterday morning was a crap show .. had mudboat issues so didnt get to hunt. was able to make a quick 1 hour afternoon hunt and killed 4 greys , before the rain started. sunday morning different ball game .with a ton of greys around was able to kill 14 ,1 teal and a dogree before we lost water about 9 o clock . the greys continued working but very hard to get them to commit when all your deeks are sitting on their sides . kinda of same deal as first split , hopefully the greys stick around >

ZERO greys where we hunted,not a promising Second Split UNLESS we get an Arctic front or two to hopefully shove some mallards down.BTW-got horrible reports from a gent who hunts SE Arkansas,worst season in past 10!!!

That a very nice group but it's hard to believe the lack of birds in that area. I traveled through there many times years ago and couldn\'t believe the the Ducks that I would see. The closest that I every hunted to that area was Intercoastal City and it was great also. I have a place just above Lost Lake south of Houma and the past few years we have had to deal with lilies and very few ducks. This season after the Storms No Lillies and just enough Ducks appear out of nowhere most every weekend. I hope my luck continues but I am hearing very few shots around me. Maybe it's a lack of hunters.

We have a lot mixed reports all over in our area. My neighbors hunt north of pecan island by white lake. No ducks at all. They been averaging about one to two ducks a hunt. West of us has been much better. We’re doing better on strong east and south winds. A strong north wind is good as well but unfortunately they’ve been happening when I’m working. Hopefully we get a really good northern front to freeze everything up north and bring a really good push of new ducks down. Last time we had that was thre years ago. I’m talking freezing temperatures down here for more than one day. That’s the only thing that will get them all the way down

speckle_searcher,Had every intention of doing what I consider a relatively easy(nothing bout duck hunting easy except missing!!)wood duck hunt this am but torrential rains hit us about the time I woulda been headed to Honey Island Swamp and slept in.If this recent front did NOT re-charge our duck marshes,especially on NShore where we have mixture of resident mallards and some migraters,we gonna be resorting to shooting whatever we have,be it scaup(hope not)buffleheads(hope not)mergansers(WILL NOT)BUT,we may have some Tree Ducks(definitely will)and older son shot nice one,know where some serious flocks are hanging around,and he stir-fried dat beast and said it was incredible and the legs are thick,makes sense since they land in trees and need strong legs for dat!!Merry Christmas and Happy and Prosperous New Year to all!!
