I recently got all of my mounts back from the taxidermist, 7 ducks, a goose, and my wife's pheasant. I wanted to share a picture of my favorite. I have a 3 duck dead mount (Greenhead, Pintail, and Canvasback) in a shadow box with Paw-Paw's old guns, some duck calls I made, an old rat trap, lots…

That is a cool mount setup there. I think I like that better than the regular ones. Looks pretty awesome.

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.…

With a little more than a month to go before we start our September teal season I put together some of the best video shots over the last several years. Teal are a blast to hunt and can't wait for the action to start.

Hey Goldhunter, heard you bought a Nova, what made you choose that particular gun over other pumps? Does it have a dependable reputation in the field?
I had a Nova and I hated it. It was not comfortable in my hands. I sold it and got a Beretta Xtreama 2. If it is a pump you are after you should maybe try a Remington 870 express. You can paddle a boat with it and it still shoots. I have had mine for 15 years.

Anyone know if the grass beds that extend out into the edge of lake lery have any teal in september? Was thinking about hunting the edge of the lake oneday on the south side of the lake? Also map shows grand lake and sun lagoon state claimed? Also much of the open water by pencil canal? I would…

Be careful. Just because it is state claimed doesnt mean you can hunt it. The entire area around Lake Lery/Delacroix is privately owned and most is already leased out for duck hunting. State Claimed doesnt not mean public land. The only public land to hunt in the St Bernard area is Biloxi WMA.

Ok, is it legal to plant crop for ducks? I have a friend who plants in his rice field and according to him, they always have done it and its perfectly fine. So can I plant in the woods? They planted a biologic mix (guide's choice).... is this ok? I have read the laws but they seem to contradict…

Get your ducks in early and avoid the last minute rush.
Turn around times are much quicker earlier in the season.

I went out to look at a blind for lease in Forked Island today. As per the Farmer he had 6' +- of storm surge on the fields. Standing rice stubble was there when the surge hit and the entire area (540 acres) is now dirt with no vegitation growing. We passed on the blind due to no feed in the area…

Not trying to be nosy, but what's a blind go for in that area. Thanks

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.

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.

I killed a mess of ringnecks the past few weeks. Heard they were a little gamey. Anybody have a recipe or any advice? Thanks!

I would like to get some feedback on surface drive motors being that they have been around for a few seasons now. I find it puzzling how you see a good bit come up for sale and most are fairly new. Are poeple buying them, not liking em and selling? We have been running go-devils for ever now…
