BIG DUCK SEASON STARTED THIS PAST WEEKEND WITH A “BANG”
Everything seemed to come together for this opening of big duck season here in Cameron Parish. Known for its many species of ducks migrating down from the north each year this opening wasn’t any different. Limits were taken this weekend for our guests from all over the United States. Cold weather, over cast skis, a little rain on Sunday and excited hunters seemed to be deadly for the ducks. Don’t miss this opportunity to come and experience a gentleman's duck hunt here at the lodge. Call the “DUCKETTS” toll free at 888.762.3391 and check availability for your hunt. Here are a few pictures for the weekend for you to see. Click here to see the rest.

Ben and his momma Mandy with the Louisiana Wildlife & fisheries decided to come to the lodge Saturday morning to do a fish survey. We found Ben in the back of the truck with his Spider man boots and some ducks.
IT’S BLAST AND CAST TIME HERE AT THE LODGE
While here at the lodge you might want to book a fishing trip after your morning duck hunt. We call it a blast and cast and you won’t be disappointed. Mostly through the month on November and until the weather permits through December the fishing remains very good. Here are a few catching pictures from opening weekend and last week.

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE
Last night Marsha made last weeks recipe (Crescent Roll Cheesecake) and boy was it good. It was very simple and I ate more than my share. I think we got that recipe from our friend Martha Austin who is of the Boerne Austin’s. Thanks Martha because I’m now sporting a couple more extra lb.’s.
Oyster season opened on our lake this week so I thought I would share one of Guy Stansel’s recipe for the tasty disambiguations.
GUY’S OYSTERS AND MUSHROOMS ON THE PIT
Large mushroom caps, steamed
Enough Oysters to fill the caps
Pineapple chunks, one per Oyster
Clean mushrooms. Stuff oysters into mushroom caps. Use a toothpick to stick one pineapple chunk on top of each oyster. Place on pit over medium fire and cook 20 to 30 minutes.
Good luck and enjoy
