Meanwhile, the high water has altered or erased(?) normal little duck flyways over normally bigger water away from my pothole and given us the most teal gunning we've had this season. Which is a darn good thing, as we've shot just one mallard in the past three mornings. Keep waiting for the bottom to drop completely out of our shooting in the marsh, because most possible food sources are well under water and the abundance of newly available feed in rain flooded ag lands, but we've been blessed with strong hunting.

Town or area not specific. We have blinds in grand chenier, hunt with a buddy in creole, and with my brother in 4 mile square.

Blind popped, fun afternoon ahead...

Our "spigot" apparently took that twist this morning. After a week of easy marsh limits despite pasture and high rice ground sheet water being covered with ducks, we did well to take home four birds today. Yesterday's was the best teal and big duck show of the lot, today nothing but a very few stragglers.
