Hi all, Im at it hard again for another louisiana duck season. Today we did very well and after retrieving a drake gadwall I noticed this bird had a complete black and white ring around his neck. I know I've seen this somewhere but cant locate any info on it. Whether its rare, or what causes this.…

Mandy, I completely agree with your philosophy trying to get away from the other hunters, but right off of Bayou Liberty in Big Branch is outstanding hunting right now. We have limited every hunt , yesterday we had 5 people in the blind. Just a friendly note from a fellow duck hunter.

Hunted down in pecan island Saturday and only shot 5. Slow first split over all. Shot 40 total in 7 hunts. Hopefully the second split brings new birds and better hunting.
great pic

Hunted Thurs, Fri, and Sat last week to wrap up what turned out to be a pretty decent first split.

Log says it was 114 ducks on 13 hunts, included one DNS hunt on 12/3, and two hunts of 3 ducks or less. That includes the TWO ducks killed on the coastal zone opener, by far the worst…

Good to see you all are getting some gray ducks as our season is the opposite for them. It seems the gray ducks are rather concentrated, if you have them the good times will roll if not, not much will change. Good report on the season.

On opening weekend a buddy and I road out to the kayak launch in Big Branch WLR. Absolutely no parking room... Did anyone do any good at all or has anyone been seeing ducks? Or should we not even waste our time?

We duck hunted Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All three days were similar type of hunts. We continue to shoot mostly divers, dosgris, redheads, buffleheads and depending on the blind being hunted there can be some tree ducks, grey duck or two with a teal or two. We have not been limiting out but…

That’s great news because I’m one of the hunters who have not shot. Lol. Maybe this cold front will move some birds into our state and business will pick up.

Anyone use the Reggio Marina lately? Is it open? What kind of shape is it in? Thanks
The ramp is open $10 in the drop box. They have hoses to clean the boat. Ramps are both in bad shape. Ramp on the drop box side is a little better but has a hole in it.

Due to nasty nautical weather predicted for about the time we typically launch,we made de executive decision to delay our launch a tad(in retrospect,wished we had launched about an hour earlier).The high water levels made the treks to our respective ponds real easy and I was unable to deploy RoBo…

Three of us went out and hunted the best blind on our duck lease and shot a total of 5 ducks. 3 Dosgris and 2 whistling tree ducks. Not much in the sky. One flight of greys high with no chance of coming down. Teal are gone for now and so are the buffleheads…

I'm guessing that I still have to use non-toxic shot when duck hunting?

I do think lead was more efficient at getting clean kills over steel. Would like to see a study on how many birds and other critters died of lead poison back in the day v. how many cripples are lost when hit with…

Been doing decent the last couple weekends considering the weather. Shot 13 opening weekend and 17 last weekend. With all the hurricanes this year I’m just glad to still have a camp and a place to hunt. Hopefully it gets better as the season goes on
