Last week, i harvested a unique bird that I have never seen before. I knew it was likely a teal of some kind due to its size. At first I thought it was a Baikal Teal from I believe Russia, but further research indicated that it is likely a blue wing/green wing teal. The white and brown patches on…

Weather conditions were ideal for our duck hunt Friday after Thanksgiving. North wind about 15 steady with overcast skies, perfect. We had good amounts of teal and big ducks on the move right from the beginning of the hunt. We had been doing well in this spot so we had all of us in one blind…

Bad conditions for a duck hunt today. No wind at all and blue bird skies. We got in before 6:00 am hoping the teal would be on the move again but today they seemed to stay put. There were times some nice bands of teal were zigging and zagging across the marsh…

Real nice morning for a duck hunt. Temperature 52 degrees with a nice breeze out of the north east and the water levels remaining above average which is good for us for the property we are hunting now. The teal are still in the area and as soon as it…

Here is a picture of a Mexican Whistling Duck. It is also known as a Black Bellied Tree Duck ? Picture taken by Scott Schexnaydre in Destrehan La.
Thanx that helps I know what that is now

I have stated many times the duck game is location, location, location. Over the last several years the ducks don’t seem to want to be in an area we had success for many years. The habitat has changed and we were able to lease new property in an area the ducks, teal for the most part want to…

This morning I had the opportunity to try out the new boat blind with some good friends. Mitchell and Shannon Prokasy enjoyed the Youth/Veterans duck hunt and finished their limit by 6:45 am. 9 teal, 1 mottled duck and 2 pintails filled the ducks strap.
I still have a couple of weekend and…

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…

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…
