Screen Shot 2020-01-18 at 2.44.31 PMWe had five people hunting this morning and killed 29 ducks. About 25 of the ducks were teal. We had a lot of birds. I think the highlight of the morning was one lone greenhead that came over a mile high. I just decided to call him as loud as I could and he came down and worked a bit. He was still pretty high, but I raised up that 10 gauge and got him down. I’m glad I did. It was a banded mallard that was born in the spring of 2019 and banded in August of 2019. I called and reported it and the information they gave me was that he was from Quebec, Canada. He met his end in Mer Rouge, Louisiana. We got our ducks and were out of there about 9:30 or so.

One of my friends was with another group of hunters and they killed a good bunch of big ducks and a few geese. overall, it ended up being a good day.

We are going in the morning and see what we can do. We’ve got a spot that nobody has hunted in five or six days and it should be right. We wil see. This weather coming in is going to be perfect for the end of the season. I’m kind of excited about it.
