The Magnolia Outdoorsman crew heads to piece of Public land in Southeast Louisiana for a early season teal hunt. With a storm blowing in, it made the conditions and hunting tough. The teal only seemed to fly in the breaks of rain and there wasn't to many breaks that…

Well I’m currently sitting in the Amite River swamp waiting on teal. I was covered up in woodies at daybreak and seen a pair of Mexican squealers fly by around 7:20. Anyone seeing/shooting teal?
1 teal down on our lease but loads of whistlers flyin around, seen a few bands of teal floating around before the rain moved in

Below are comments regarding the LDWF aerial survey:

COMMENTS: The estimate of 236,000 blue-winged teal from this survey is nearly twice last year’s estimate of 127,000 and 4-times the 59,000 estimated in 2018. It is 55% higher than the most-recent 5-year average of 152,000 and…

We have been out looking for teal the last week. Since the past week we have two huge flocks taking up residence on one of our leases. We can only hope they stick around awhile. There are a few dates left available for guided teal hunts. For bookings contact Mike Smith at 504-228-4506.…

Looks like the water level is becoming normal. Has anyone been able to get out and survey the situation as it relates to aquatic vegetation damage?

I hunt the east side close to Phoenix. The tropical weather earlier in the summer seemed to have higher water with little damage to the…

I plan on checking that area out this weekend. I hope the SAV remains nice and healthy.

We spent the weekend chasing gators in the Delacroix marsh the past couple days. We did see a few nice flocks of teal. Along with a pair of wood ducks and plenty tree ducks, we saw teal in flocks of 30, 15, 8, 6, 4, and also a few singles. Hopping for more migrations in the next two weeks leading…

Thanks Proud Pop, I know your hooked up with the gators and good luck with the gators, we're seeing the same, one report from the lease Sunday is just about what we're seeing, enough to make it interesting, time to get camper back down to Delacroix.

Looks like we are going back to 2 zones for duck seasons 2021-2025.
I wonder how many splits?

Guys,do any of you hunt the lower Lafitte area,say perhaps the Mud Lake,Bayou St. Denis,Bay Cray area? Trying to find out how the duck hunting has been that far out in the past few years and what kind of ducks are bagged. Thanks for any responses.
No one hunts the lower Lafitte area?

Friend and I made the plan to check the lease out, routes open only had to grind out in one spot, run it a bit more and won't be a problem, grass beds look great, not as many Lilly's, saw a few teal and squealers floating around all we need is more birds for the opener

I was behind the island on the south end of false river this morning catching gar and seen a flock of 13 blue wings along the shore. They are in the state! Can’t wait! Anyone else seeing teal?
GB3 and I saw two blue wings when we checked his crab traps this past Th.Bayoubob and I saw zero today when we fished Lake P,might be opportune time for me to scout both E and W,have heard that last year they showed up W and E of where we typically hunted!!!

The squealers are still around and in pretty good numbers. They are moving from rice fields into towns - seeing more in populated areas than in past.

Getting the teal fever, looking forward to a couple hunts with friends. Will enjoy some good eats and homemade wine even if hunts are a…

That’s the truth, squealers everywhere! I wish the powers that be would turn us loose on them during September teal season. It would be nice if we could target another duck besides teal.

Any good websites out there to shop for available duck leases? Looking for anywhere in the SELA region... Thanks
Try refuge forums.

Make a quick trip to the Chef this morning. In comparison to other marsh habit in Southeast Louisiana, the Chef just looks health and always has plenty of grass that provides the gin clear water which is my favorite ingredient for sight fishing Reds.

That does suck that they cancelled. I did look at my DU mag today, most of the breeding grounds for our flyway are in excellent condition.

Since it seems like every post lately is blaming surface drives for the lack of ducks, I feel it necessary to provide some insight.

Are Surface Drives the reason for no Ducks?

No. You can take a look at every LAA WMA, Federal Refuges, and WMAs with surface drive restrictions,…
