still hammering the greys and occasional scaup teals seemed to have vanished but I even got a great big green head such a relief to shoot a few birds
Hunted this morning till 1100am we all shot a few which is great that's all I need is to have a few shots unlike last year. when I made 8 hunts and never shot anything. so was a great day. I talked to a friend they had 8 men in there group in PAC WMA they all got there limit. That's a good sign for sure.
Folks can't say for certain they were headed to Venice but they were sure flying that way. Yesterday while doing some blind work in leeville saw wave after wave of south bound high flying ducks. Someone in Venice should have a good hunt. P.A.C. WMA is also loaded with good ducks. That's all I got hope it helps.
Fished today at the green bridge on pearl river saw a few flocks of greys a few mottles didn't run much but I did see a few fishing was on fire for bass and red fish red shad worm
Went to the lease today at leeville road the whole 1200 acres at day light till 3pm fishing and scouting never saw a duck or jumped a duck last year we never fired a shot on opening day. Looks like it may be a repeat.
Hunted Thursday morning. Saw three teal shot three teal. Rode for a hour saw maybe a dozen. Widgeon grass hydrilla every pond chocked full . Saw two pintail and lots of mottle ducks. Folks I have been hunting this area for years. Oh well it is what it is .
Folks I traveled well over a hour all over baptiste collet emmaline pass at Venice worse than last year best feed I have seen in years several mottles but saw less than 30 teal I went everywhere. Last year I found a couple hundred in emmaline pass not this year . Sickening all this feed and no teal. Oh well going anyway you never no they may show up over night. Yeah right....
Well Mr Allen Miley Landed his first red fish yesterday and several more after that. Red fish were eating minnows on bottom in leeville 01/10/2014. I think another boy might be hooked on red fishing.
I really am not trying to keep the debate going. I am just curious as to how someone comes up with a number to how many ducks La. kills each year the only time I have been asked was at the HIP part of the lic. and now you don't even get asked they just give it to u. A friend from way down south told me if the you get that info off HIP Cajuns love to brag well so do red necks and so do rich folk when it comes to hunting and fishing. Just curious.
Here is a leeville report. Nothing we have made 8 hunts and not fired a shot. Two were opening day. I am glad for you guys that have leases that usually hold ducks and that you have been getting some. In leeville we usually get the scraps and I am good with that. But no scraps this year. I never thought I would say this but I am done for the year. Sure its not all about killing, but there is a limit for every man and I just reached mine. My son working on a job in Kansas says there are even more ducks and geese and no one shooting them. He is making contacts for me I think I will just take a week off next year and get it out of my system up that way. But the fishing very good this year gonna work on that hope everyone has a great new year.
well my son is still in Kansas on a job through all the ice and weather the ducks have stayed in the fields and flooded areas> he said every field and pot hole is loaded. just passing it on.
Well three blinds 1 grey heard one pond in the marsh at Leeville shot consistently. Nothing in the air. Oh well had coffee in the boat and fried sausage. wasn't a total loss. Got to have the 8 million BAD DAYS TO APPRECIATE the very few good days that are left way down south.
talked to a friend today a smidgen of mix bag seen. a small flock of green wings and two small flocks of greys. and two mottles. on the water most of the day.
Well my youngest grandson got to go with me and the girls on the youth hunt. If this smile dosnt explain why we go through the trouble of having youth hunts I don't know what would. That 410 was my first gun was my sons first gun now his sons first gun.
My girls doing what they love.
built a blind today saw 0 ducks on the lease. tide was very high.
I try to make a hunt here every year I have found the people respectful and helpful in the interest of the sportsman brother hood here is some info from the FDWF I think you will find it the way La. used to be give it a try one year
In general, waterfowl hunting in Florida is permitted on any water body that has public access, unless it is closed for a specific reason, such as being in a park or in an area where the discharge of firearms is prohibited. Wildlife management areas (WMAs), water management district (WMD) lands, and national wildlife refuges (NWRs) that offer duck hunting may have special permit requirements and restrictions on when and where you can hunt. Regional offices of the FWC can provide additional information on WMAs and other duck hunting areas. Please check with local law enforcement agencies for specific firearm discharge regulations on public water bodies prior to hunting.
well me and the girls hunted baptise colleit there were about 3 or 4 boats across from us that shot all morning. Happy for them one teal came in all morning. oh well at least we were out.
Ok guys I went to venice today baptize colliet and around. Man the grass looks great this year. But we rode to all the places we hunt and rode and rode. I burned 7 gallons in my gator tail. found 1 small concentration of a couple of flocks. And I am sure the other folks scouting found the very small group. last year we had no grass and no birds this year grass and no birds. Yes I am going anyway. Sorry wish I had better news.
