I hunted my blind at Pecan Island this morning. I missed one BW teal. Has not been hunted in a week. I picked up my decoys and boat and will not return this season unless a major change occurs. That makes 2 teal in 3 hunts. After a week of hard freezes, no birds. I am at a complete and total loss as to why.

Why would limits go back down to 3?? The yearly overall count has been over the long term AVG for years.

Not here! I've hunted when we had that 3 duck limit. Saw far more birds back then as compared to today. We just don't have the ducks down here anymore. Somehow we need to re-establish historical migration patterns in order to have more ducks. We have less ducks, specks and snows in our marshes and rice fields than ever before.
I just hope its not too late for LA to regain what was once ours.

I?m so fed up with duck hunting right now, I?m scared to go. If I went up there and didn?t smash them I would probably sell all my stuff and give it up!

If you believe the state duck count then they ARE in Louisiana. If they are here then the hunting pressure has them rafted up in the reserves/preserves and big bodies of water where they feel safe. Years ago Phil Robertson said something to the effect that if we don?t allow lottery or youth hunts on reserves/preserves 3 days per week we will ruin our hunting. Looks like he was right. I think 75% of our problem is hunting pressure.

I can’t answer that question but 1,000 acres is a drop in the bucket compared to what the state has that cannot be hunted. And Phil was saying to hunt the areas that have no hunting now to move the birds around. I think you misunderstood. He was advocating hunting in what are now no hunting areas.

I made an afternoon trip today and only saw a 15 - 20 ducks total. I think I’m done for the season. It’s not worth my time and gas to go look at an empty sky.

Heck Yea. Might as well run em out the state completely. If anyone can hold blame of the state of the duck hunting here in LA its Phil and his duck dynasty crew.

Default Phil Robertson and duck Dynasty?

If you think Duck TV, all of it in general, has hurt Louisiana hunting you are dreaming. DU has had way more impact on the northern states getting into the duck hunting business. I do not hold any one thing responsible for what we have had to our hunting in Louisiana. But I darn well can blame that hunting ducks in general has lead to its own demise in Louisiana. This is a great sport to build friendships and family together. It was just a matter of time before others got into it. I can say that hunting pressure is number one, no till farming, and legalized baiting is whats hurting the most. It will never return to how it use to be in Louisiana, this is one part of life that will never repeat itself in my opinion.
