Guys,what do you all think happened to the Delacroix/Reggio area as ducks are concerned? No storms this year,marsh is seemingly in good condition.Possible flyway change? Large numbers in SW LA.Looking like we may have to start traveling to get decent duck hunting like we do for deer hunting. Thoughts?
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.
What happened to the Sweetwater Marina reports?
There have been rumors that the Reggio Marina is closed and up for sale. Went down there today and talked to Mike there. The Reggio marina IS open and not up for sale. Disgruntled kayaker started this rumor but it is not true.The marina is open for use.
Have any of you guys had trouble with alligators smashing your decoys and eating your hard earned teal in Delacroix during teal season? Last September I had a 7 to 10 foot alligator smash 3 decoys and get both teal after I shot a rare double. He swam into my decoys and started nudging them( I assumed he was smelling them) with his nose. He then stayed there looking at me sitting in the grass. After 3 or 4 minutes he just started biting my decoys. I tried to scare him off with 2 shots but that did not faze him. Looked up and 2 teal were coming over the decoys. Boom! Boom! A rare double for me. Soon as they hit the water the gator made a bee line for them and got the 1st one then got the 2nd one. I was really PO. He stayed around for about an hour.No more teal came by and finally he left. Anyone had anything similar to happen to them in Delacroix? It seems every year I am seeing more and more and they are getting bigger and bigger.

Have any of you deer hunters used a Benz Silent Rider Muffler to quiet your Atv or know someone who has? I have a Kodiak 450 and it is a lot louder than other 4-wheelers. I would like to know if they really work before I go out and buy one. Thanks for any replies.
