    Just wanted to share a few pics from this season. I had to travel back to south Louisiana to shoot some ducks this year. I've lived here a few years and am just this season trying to find areas to duck hunt. I'm scouting the local lakes and game lands to try to find a decent spot to take my son. So far, coots on Harris lake has been my best success. Anyway, here are a few shots from a weekend trip to Pass-A-Loutre WMA during the Christmas break.

    This is from the previous season. Same area...same shirt :-) This was by far the best Pintail I had ever shot. It was a full bodied, full plumage bird. Had never seen a pinner this big. Did not get it mounted myself but traded with another hunter that wanted to put it on the wall. Some years you are covered up in pintail down there but the limit is 2 per person. You spend the rest of the hunt watching bands come in and out of the decoys. I've heard they're plentiful on the NC coast as well but have not made any hunts out there...yet. They're my favorite duck to shoot.

    WOW?
    My Favorite Duck also..ABSOLUTELY Beautiful Duck!!! And yeah that's a Big one!!! This is my First year Duck hunting and my Buddy said that he would really love to shoot a Drake Green Wing teal because they are his favorite and he's never killed one so as luck would have it...I'm sitting on the Bank watching because he had a Dr's Appointment and had to leave for a hour os so and I see 2 Ducks HAULING toward me!!! I toss up and empty Gun and hit 1 of them with 1 pellet to the head lol That's the 1 I might mount...We have heard of a few Pintails around but haven't seen any ourselves....Wanna sell that Shirt? lol

    Shirt NOT for sale :-)
    You mean my double secret, triple probation, never been washed, lucky Pintail shirt? No way! Actually, I can't find it since returning from this trip to New Orleans/Venice, La. Hopefully in turns up in one of my friends' (or mine) duffle bags. Otherwise it's a mandatory trip to Bass Pro Shops to get a replacement. I've been following the posts and that green wing you shot is a cool looking bird as well. My only recommendation is to be selective on the birds you put on the wall. The reason I did not mount the bird in the photo is because I already had a pintail mount (1st ever pintail) but it was a drab young bird. No comparison to this one. Congrats on your first season of duck hunting. Sounds like you are officially addicted to QUACK!!!
