Was fishing Flat Lake off the Diversion Canal yesterday and saw 2 different flocks of BWT along the bank just loafing/preening. Wondering if I could set up a boat blind in the lily pads and be legal? Back in the 80’s there were permanent blinds built on the lake, back when we had mallards and…

I tore my Achilles tendon and had some seat time to put together our best shots from 2015 to 2020 during the September special teal season in southeast Louisiana. I hope this gets the juices flowing getting everyone ready for September 11. We will be ready to go, walking boot on the leg and all.

Despite all the negative duck reports this year, I decided to make a hunt anyway. I would like somebody to identify these black ducks. The lake was full of them. I passed up on pintails, mallards, and canvasbacks to shoot these tasty black ducks. I probably could have killed 92 mallards but these…

Has anyone had any experiences with Wildwings Kennels on the Westbank? Someone recommended him to my girlfriend for our young pup and I would like to get some feedback whether it be positive or negative. She talked with him today and he seemed to be a pretty straight up guy. His price is a little…

The Infamous Jerald Horst

In January of this year, LSM wrote an article about a man named Jerald Horst. To sum it up, this man basically duck hunted the Wax Lake Outlet all season long and told of the methods he used to intercept rafting ducks. Little did anyone know what Jerald Horst would…

Sure is a lot of unruly behavior going on at the Wax. I think I hear more negative remarks coming from the Wax than positive ones.

Any old veteran Duck hunters got any tips for identifying Do Gris vs. ring necks when in flight. I had close call last season, miss id'd a scaup for a ring neck, thankfully I wasnt over the limit of 2 do gris. It was a passing shot and damned if it didnt look the exact same as a ring neck to me.…

Ahh well i think a dosgris has a lil more white on the wing that a ringneck. Its just hard to tell there is no easy way around it really. Just remember dosgris are brackish water ducks and ringnecks are freshwater. So you almost never find ringnecks in salt marshes.

While I sit at work, bored out of my mind, I figured I would begin to solve the worlds problems. Lets begin with the reject of the waterfowl community, the pooldo (yes, its probably misspelled). How do pooldo migrate south for the winter. If any of you have seen these birds fly, you probably…

Before you disrespect the pouldeau, you better try them. What! I can just taste the pouldeau and oyster gumbo already. If you don't want them, let them go. I will be there to get them. Running them up...ughhhh.....I mean calling them in. Ha ha ha.

theres tons of great calls. out of all mine I like my echo the best. I dont remember which one I have though. I do know it wood. i wanna say its cocabola but not sure.

Can someone tell me the pros and cons of a 26 inch barrel and a 28 inch barrel. Thinking of getting a new shotgun and cant decide which length barrel to get. thanks craig
Well I really dont think it matters, it might help if you are have a kid and need a shorter barrel. What really matters is the choke and not the barrel length.

After the worst duck season on record for us, we ended on a lucky note. My son got his first goose and to top it off it was a banded speck!

A few year back I developed a creeping eruption as it is called in medical books, better known as 'Nuria Itch'. I’ve had it 10+ times over the years and it always had to run its 8-14 course which starts on your leg and stops at the neck unless it has enough life to keep going back down again.…
