WE  GOT  DUCKS  AND  LOTS  OF  THEM ! ! ! !

What a great opening week in the marsh. Our hunters harvested over 1800 of the flying fowl from our blinds here in southwest Louisiana. Almost perfect weather and wind conditions contributed to one of the best opening weeks in our 35 years history. We have a huge amount of big ducks right now  including some we hardly ever see this early in the year. MALLARDS. This is a gentleman’s hunt that your feet will never get wet and what about that GUMBO ? Call 888.762.3391 now, and get the “DUCKETTS” to get you hooked up with a duck hunting trip you will never forget. School’s out for Thanksgiving so bring the youngsters over for a day in the marsh. Here are a few pictures from the last couple of days and you can view them all by clicking here

BIG TIME CATCHING AFTER THE HUNT

After the morning hunt your day won’t be complete until you tangled with some Southwest Louisiana tackle busting Redfish. The Redfishing right now is just stupid. Paul Grindol told me yesterday a young boy on his boat caught 2 on just a BARE HOOK. That’s my kind of catching. Check with your guide and they will get you ready to go after lunch. Here is a couple of AFTER THE HUNT CATCHES.

Special thanks to Jimmy Foret with TOTAL SAFETY for bringing 40 or 50 of his guys to the lodge this weekend for a couple of days of R & R as well as being able to take a look at some of their equipment parked in the lot. I learned what an AIR COBRA and a PETROHAB was all in the same day. Here are a couple of pictures. Thanks for coming guys and we will see you again next year.
