Duck hunting report

The duck action has been steady over the last couple of weeks. We have plenty of ducks on the lease in the Mississippi River Delta and they are working well. We have had to move around a bit and use differnt decoy spreads to keep giving them differnt looks. The birds are working well into the diffent spreads and blind locations. We are still taking Gadwall, Widgeon, Bluewing and Greenwing Teal and a few Pintail. With the weekly cold fronts, the action should continue to be outstanding.

Duck season opener report

Awesome start to duck season 2014! The ducks are down and they worked like the good ole days this weekend in the Mississippi River Delta. Easy limits each morning on a wide variety of species. We set up early and waited for daylight, first came the Greenwing and Bluewing teal. Each hunter bagged a couple to get the day started and then we decided to wait out the big ducks. Great idea as big groups of ducks started to dive bomb into the decoy spread. We ended up with Mallards, Gadwalls, Widgeon and Mottled ducks. Excellent shooting combined with endless opportunity resulted in easy limits. This season could be one for the ages!

Duck Hunting in Venice, Louisiana

The duck hunting is excellent so far this season in the Mississippi River Delta out of Venice, LA. The birds are down in good numbers and the hunting areas have an over abundance of grasses and other duck feed. The hunting should only get better as the weather turns cold and sends more supply down the flyway our way. My guests have harvested Gadwall, Pintail, Widgeon, Mottled and BW Teal. The fishing has been outstanding as well. The Delta is loaded with redfish right now. These fish are cruising along any rock jetty. Live cocahoes, dead shrimp and various artificials are all producing fat Venice reds. The trout are a bit more challenging, but will soon fall into the fall/winter time pattern. The river is low and the water is turning a nice green color. The migration is on for both waterfowl and fish. Don’t be left out of the hot winter action! Good luck.
