    Apparently they’re too busy cleaning ducks to reply.

    You missed it. Opening day was sweet. This morning a whole lot slower, but enough. Tomorrow...

    Opening weekend was really slow for us on public. Saturday was a sausage fest. Sunday the birds decoyed feet down, but were very few. Lots of texas hunters in Louisiana. The game wardens were checking one crew from texas and us at the same time. One of the game wardens asked a kid, hey, where is your license. The kid says "I have my texas license, but that's it". At the Oklahoma land race saturday morning one boat just comes to a dead stop in the middle of the canal. THE MIDDLE! Boats passing around him left and right.....I slow down to see whats up. Well, he has his phone out and is looking at something. The boat had texas tags....Gonna get someone killed.

    On a positive note I did kill another banded mottled duck. Banded in Grand Chenier this year. That makes like 4 or 5 banded mottled's we have killed out of the 2016 and 2018 banding in Grand Chenier.

    I'm happy to be hunting again. Nothing like focusing on what you love to do.

    Saw several Hooded Mergansers, some coots and other "small" ducks in North Georgia/Clayton today on my afternoon nature hike. There are a few deer around also, but I don't have an out-of-state license, so I haven't tried to zero-in on their routines too much. Dey ain't stocking da trout streams now cause it's too cold (dang), so I'm ready to head back and greet some Pecan Island ducks.

    We managed 1 woody yesterday at Sherburne. Warden said there were around 40 hunters with 13 ducks killed. No bueno

    That does sound like the birds are scarce there. Thanks for the report!

    Hunted Boeuf WMA in North LA. Two man wood duck limit opening morning. Had 4 mallards work perfect but land outside decoys, to far to shoot. I’ve hunted Boeuf hard every yr the last 6 yrs and they have more wood ducks than I ever remember seeing. Sunday saw good migrating flocks of mallards (multiple flocks of 200 birds), had “decent” numbers of big ducks on the WMA but not that many people killed from what I’ve heard.


    If you’ve ever hunted Boeuf you know how flooded it can be. This is the earliest I’ve ever seen it flood though. Can’t really get anywhere unless you have a boat. Even then, it makes it hard Bc the ducks can literally go down anywhere Bc there’s so much water.
