It’s just slow out there in the duck blinds right now. The best hunting is for geese and there are still plenty of them. But duck hunting is just plain slow for most folks.
There are some big groups of teal in the bigger waters, but few mallards, gadwalls or pintails. The ducks that are here are hard to work and if they hear a shot anywhere near, they are gone. We need lots of rain, not just the sprinkles we got Wednesday. One of the regular online duck reports from southeast Louisiana pretty well summed up how their season is going right now: “Merganser madness. Nothing else “
Hang in there. Keep your gear ready and it will get better.
