For the Christmas break we headed up to West Monroe to deliver some pirogues and spend a few days with Phil Robertson and the Duck Commander crew. Here we are after the first hunt picking a seven man limit of woodies. Phil is seated at the left. For additional pictures of our trip visit our Facebook page.
Without any big weather changes during Thanksgiving week and weekend the grays have definitely moved into their midday flight patterns around our land in Delacroix. This mixed limit taken by Scott and his friends, Neil and Tom, was followed by Paw Paw and I taking 10 grays from about 11 AM until 1 PM from the same blind.
Seven limits made up mainly of greenwings on Saturday was followed up by very bad weather early Sunday morning. We waited for the heavy rains to clear before heading out to brave the 20-30 mph winds and were rewarded with five more limits of mostly grays but we also bagged the first pintail, mallard, widgeon and redhead of the season. Not bad for a midday hunt.
After a very slow Teal Season, the Youth Weekend started off with a bang, 47 of them to be exact. Looking forward to a great opening weekend.
