Public hunting around BR is thin. Maurepas is southeast of you, Manchac is east of you and Sherburne is west of you. Maurepas left me with a negative impression last year. Manchac is small and may get crowded quick. Sherburne isn't too far and there should be ducks there. Used to be some hunting on Spanish Lake in St Gabriel, but it had a lot of blinds whose owners are pretty possessive and if your feet touch dirt, you are trespassing. The fools probably are building houses on the bank by now. If you feel like a road trip, the Sabine, Calcasieu and Cameron Prairie NWRs are now open and have beautiful marsh. I can't vouch for the ducks yet, but they are all easily accessible to small craft it you aren't scared of a paddle. There is great public hunting all over Louisiana, but most of the really good WMAs require a boat with an engine to access.
