While attending a beach wedding last Saturday in Pass Christian I saw several flocks of 100-150 Canvasbacks flying west along the beach ! Beautiful sight- got my blood up !!!
They probably didn’t stop until old Mexico. It’s been a long time since I shot a canvasback, maybe this will be the season.

How 'bout somebody post some good COOT recipes. I always take a few each year and usually butterfly the breast and fry like a piece of fish in Zatarains seasoned fish fry...can't tell it from a duck.

Does anyone know of someone that can rebuild a ZF Hurth 450 a2 clutch. I live in the Houma area. I have worked on velvet drives before but not sure if they are close to the same. It has a clanking noise like a loose part- nut bouncing around inside. I don't think it is the damper plate. Only…

Well, we had a great teal season. One of the best and most satisfying in a long time. We limited on every hunt we made. In between 2 and 6 people. Teal came in as singles through flocks of 4. Opening day we had a bunch of hunters, so people wanted to shoot at everything that came into range,…

With teal season now wrapped up, I took the 2 minutes it required to crunch and re-crunch my numbers for the details below:

26 BW teal taken on 6 hunts

Though we started with a nice hunt on opening day taking 9 birds, the rising tides made sure we were unlikely to have…

The 2020 teal season in SE Louisiana was one of the best overall teal seasons I have ever had. Despite the aggravation of hurricanes, tropical storms and high tides the teal were there and we were lucky to be on the X. We made seven hunts limiting out on six of them.

First speckled bellies spotted this am. 3 groups of about 20 each flying around together. Teal still stacked up in open water fields. Wood ducks are still around in good numbers. Big ducks seem to be down earlier this year. It has a been a few years since we have seen this many birds down during…

The high water had us pushed out of the lease in Delacroix. Managed to find a few teal bouncing around the public options on the Northshore. We were able to take several limits this year, but teal numbers did drop as the season went along. Hoping this is an indicator of big duck season. …

Quick 3 man limit, seems to be slowing down a little though.
Teal headed to old Mexico, getting ahead of the fronts this week.

It rained on us from the time we left camp all through the hunt. Was not real enthused about the situation until daylight and teal started flying. It was a great hunt as three of us shot 18 teal. With all the high water and crazy weather we are fortunate the teal are…

Our rice field was finally flooded and huntable. We shot a 3 man limit in about 20 minutes and it was even better than my opening day hunt. Never seen that many ducks before in my life. Bands from 30-5 all day. Clipped a little video from my…

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
