When I started hunting Cameron Parish in '83, the claim was that it killed more ducks than the Atlantic Flyway. Maybe just Chamber of Commerce talk, but we were pretty spoiled. Barring winters' return, and maybe even then, that's behind us.
Vermilion ranks 2nd in La. and third "in the world" (I mean in the US)
I see we were 1st in state but only second in the country. Bummer. But not nearly as big of one as would be the past two-year average ranking...
If things don't change, check this in another 10 years from now, if we still have any heading this way.
I don’t know any other area that has seen such a drastic decrease based on my personal observations than Cameron.
Lord knows we've taken a hickey, but the refuges and large, relatively low pressure private holdings have kept Cameron and the marsh portion of Vermilion Parish in better shape than the once fine largely ag lands around them. Only hope I see for SWLA ag land is that large chunks of it are being purchased and managed for hunting through controlling both pressure and crawfishing.
The deep thinkers can cry all they want about rich guys hording the birds, but the "duck farms" are getting to be the only reason there are still crumbs around for the rest of us.
I’m good with hunters who own duck farms managing pressure.
It’s the all inclusive bed and breakfast areas that are large enough to hoard the birds that I take exception to.
Then you're going to have to outlaw hunting within unharvested rice's sphere of influence. And push all who would have into your spots...
