Here is a link to the drought map :

I have talk to some folks that plan to travel to find ducks for opening day. I do not duck hunt but the guys that do will go through a lot to get to the birds.

Lack of water is going to be a big factor. That is not the problem now. We need major cold fronts soon. We have water where I'm hunting just no ducks.

Some of my friends are going to the coast. Good luck.

Lack of water can be a good thing if you are the one with plenty of water (fewer places for ducks to set down) But we do need some cold fronts. Hunting ducks in short sleeves just doesn't feel right.

Just returned. Went to Gueydan, LA and made a goose hunt. Opening day my group of four bagged our limit on specks, and one very unlucky teal. Sunday, we killed one lone speck that thought he was high enough, but we proved him wrong. Started to sprinkle when we left today, but too little too late. Luckily the geese didn't mind that we didn't have any water. I hope to go back when the rice fields fill up.

I haven't been hunting but a friend shot 6 ducks Opening Day and 7 ducks yesterday on Cross Lake. Not bad considering the lack of weather...

seven ducks huh?

The daily bag limit on ducks is six and may include no more than four mallards (no more than two of which may be females), one canvasback, one pintail, three mottled ducks, one black duck, two wood ducks, two scaup and two redheads. The daily bag limit on coots is 15. In addition to the daily bag limit for ducks, the daily bag limit for mergansers is five, only two of which may be a hooded merganser. The possession limit on ducks, coots and mergansers is twice the daily bag limit.

The ducks are heavy at the coast. These are ducks that migrate based on time. What we get here that tend to stay, at least untill we shoot them are migrating on weather or are being hunted out of their spots.

Just this week new ducks have arrived, but damn it's slow. We need a cold front, then you'll see a big migration, "flight day", a duck hunters dream. Any way if you want to go to South LA. the ducks are there.

So are the Redfish and Specks. Digesting a Redfish as I type.

Humming birds

I still am getting an occasional humming bird. Usually one or two a week, during or after a front. It is pretty cool. All my humming bird plants are in full bloom, it's like a spring garden. It's amazing how the plants are available for the birds when the birds need them.

Not much feeding but Cardinals and Whitethroated Sparrows.

I still have a humming bird. It is a Black-Chinned very rare for here. My cousin is a humming bird freak, he travels everywhere to study and band them. I ask him recently what his humming bird situation was and he got pissed off. Well, when I said I still had one He exploded. "I've been all over La. trying to band a Black-Chinned and you've got one, @#$%$$, "

By the way, the duck hunting is awesome. If your in the right spot. Canvasbacks, Red Heads, Mallards, Gadwall, etc... We jumped 3500 in front of our blind Sat. afternoon. Lots of geese too.

This is not in south La. either. Not telling where!

Sorry I missed this a while back. I should have said "friends" not "friend".. That was for the whole blind... (2 guys that day)

Update: They have been consistently doing well at Cross lake in the woods.. Dunno about the open lake...
