Three of us hunted today and shot 6 dosgris and 2 ring necks. All divers continue but at least we are shooting some ducks holding our nose while doing it.

Got to love the colors late in season. Hopefully get a green wing before season ends.
I had the pleasure of hunting with Glardon Hoffpauir at Spoonbill Adventures in Welsh, LA on Wednesday. It was great to go over there and try something different after the very disappointing season we are having in Southeast Louisiana. We hunted a beautiful flooded rice field hoping for ducks and…

In my profession,referrals are like gold and gotta give credit where it is due and a mobile marine mechanic that I happenstance met quite a few years ago deserves a ton of credit as he professionally rebuilt my lower unit on 50 hp Johnson(got her better than when I originally bought boat)and I…

Gueydan Louisiana. The passed few years have been amazing. The geese were down, there was perfect weather, and they enjoyed checking out your smack talk.

What has happened this year that you believe to be some of the reasons as to why the above stated, besides having perfect weather,…

You must have all the birds in the southwest. The southeast is void, even the local ducks have vanished. I seen about a dozen total this past weekend and nothing in range.

As we all know 2020 was a very strange year in all aspects so there is no reason the last duck hunt of 2020 should be any different. Yesterday, 12/31/20 me and Rooster were making a duck hunt and a pelican landed in the pond then swam over to our boat then jumped up on the transom. After that it…

Hunted down in Pecan Island last Sunday and Monday with pretty good results. We shot 13 on Sunday and 8 on Monday mostly teal and scaup with a bonus green head. Hunting later is definitely the ticket as most of the ducks we shot both days were between 9 and 11 in the morning
