Default Is duck hunting done in South Louisiana?

Do any of you believe we can bring back migrating ducks to traditional numbers? I've been a diehard duck hunter for over 54 years. I enjoyed the days of 10 bird limits as well as the 3 bird limit in 40 day seasons. Even in those lean years the rice fields and marshes were filled with ducks.
Driving to the hunting camps you had field upon field of feeding geese and ducks starting in Indian Bayou through Kaplan and Gueydan. We even held ducks in those rice fields on Ridge road in Lafayette Parish!


Just what has changed? Who or what is to blame? Is it weather, agricultural practices, DU, mud motors?


If you lease hunting land have you run the numbers on cost per duck killed lately?


It really doesn't look promising for the future.
