Oh Mandy, As you already know 90% of these people don't know what they are doing, wind to the face, set up on wrong side island, call when they shouldn't, its kind of like sitting at the boat launch, we enjoy the show. Let em come, as long as they don't run the mud boats out there they will watch us do the killing (we believe the noise of the mud boats do more harm than the pressure). I just as soon drop a pin, went fishing out there this morning was a group set up on same island we were yesterday, had 3 spinning wings going, shot 2 ducks. Like I said, we used diff decoys and no spinning wings, different calls and do it at the proper time. I get the feeling you would do well over by us.

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.

Gotta love the sign says no fishing or crabbing by the launch, when ask people to move their lines they look at you like you have two heads, contacted LWF, they told me, They want people to be out and about right now... Good luck, if you like crowds great place to go!

A comment titled: Re: Season Recap in response to a report titled: Season Recap

Our numbers were not down, but saw a decrease in the number of greys and increase in the number of teal. Have a lease in Delacroix, hunt there both opening weekends, but public land the rest of the season. Did make 7 less hunts this year due to the greys not wanting to work. Still looking forward to next year...

not asking your exact spot, what area are you fishing? Hopedale..DU

Hunted big branch this morning, good amount of shooting early, then not much after. Good flight at day break, then a long sit after that...

The days of having a lease and hunting it every weekend like Flat Point are over...Headed to St Joseph this week, have a client with property up there, supposed to be some green heads Going to El Campo Tx in 2 weeks, they are having best year in last 5 this year, that's why I raised the question on the flyway changing Shoot straight

Guys, just a question, I think the flyway is changing, where are all the snows? they are increasing in numbers and although I haven't killed many here, used to see them flying every morning I would hunt. What are your thoughts on the flyway moving??

Mandevillian, Heard some really good reports from Big Branch near Lacombe, isn't that pretty close to you? Not sure if you are familiar with that area, it is easily accessible...

Went this morning to a pond that was holding A LOT of ducks last weekend. Had 4 people total, ended with 15 (9 greys, 2 widgeon, 4 teal), thought all the scouting I did last weekend would pay off a little better, but since this year did not turn out as expected, rinsed the decoys and accessories and will put them away tonight.

Thanks to everyone for their posts, I will keep my fingers crossed all summer!

Yes more in Arkansas, then Minn, and Texas. I am a meat hunter, the bands just add jingle to the calls. I do like to get the certificate telling where the bird was banded, always interesting. I have taken several turkeys in the local management, never a banded one though.

The salvinia is a huge problem here, more so in Canarvon and Delacroix in the places that I hunt. I hunt closer to the lake in big branch and have not had the same problem. Probably from the amount of people running through there.

Good luck, I enjoy your posts, keep it up.

Mandevillian, I know you nor I will give up, too many outstanding memories...I just moved back to LA 10 years ago (this is home) and had the privilege to hunt all over the country. Not saying best hunting is here,if not very close to it. I love the marsh hunting opportunities we have, the only fault I have with hunting here is I have 22 bands on my lanyard and have hunted here for a good 25 years and only 1 band came from here and that was a Woodie. With that said, be safe, good luck with the deer, more meat on them anyway...

Normally I look at post of no birds and think people just are not putting in the work, Saturday, I hunted close and easy, 2 limits, Sunday I worked with the low water and paddled in 2 miles (realizing my age the whole way), 3 of us ended with 9 birds...Our season was not bad when looking at final numbers, but you could tell number of ducks was way off, I also deer hunted during the duck season this year and haven't done that in 10 years. We made 5 less hunts this year than we did last year. Hoping next year comes back around!
