Majestic Ending to a Perfect Duck Season

Reply
 
I say this because any season I am able to go hunting is a perfect season. Shot more ducks this season than last season, but it's been awfully slow for the last several years in the marsh below St. Mary Parish. Last season 1 Widgeon Hen. This season, Two Mallard Drakes and a Bluewing Hen ! ! !

God bless ! !

3 ducks?
That's the season total or for one hunt? If you shot 3 ducks all year, you are one heck of a dedicated hunter to stay at it. Unless you only hunt once per year.

Ducks
My son and I went on at least 5 hunts. Saw birds twice, shot birds once............Yesterday, one hunt with shots. We used to hunt every weekend and shoot a couple hundred ducks each year. Don't know why they're here now, but they weren't here last weekend, or before for that matter.

Bad season for me
I have been hunting Delacroix Island, SE Louisiana for the last 20 plus years. We have had some good hunts. But with the increasing storms, the duck hunting is going downhill fast. No food and no ducks. Our average duck hunt was to limit out and go fishing for trout and reds. Katrina, Rita, Gustav,& Ivan has possibly changed this area forever. Now I am not saying that it is forever over, but I believe as the wetlands areas are lost to erosion, the effects of storms are greater year after year. There is no aquatic vegetation and no reason for the ducks to stick around. I am 57 years old and may have to consider some kind of change. Who knows, maybe it can come back for a few more years of good hunting. Only the future will reveal that. Better luck next year. Milton
