Hey Rick Hall and Comeaux....

Reynolds had firsthand knowledge of the Cameron-Creole area, where he and his son took seven birds Saturday and 11 Sunday on a weekend when Louisiana hunters were going for the new six-teal-per-day limit, up from four-per-day that had been the norm since the special season was set up more than 40 years ago.

“I guess the people who were taking birds are not calling me, but I get the impression that hunting is pretty slow,” Reynolds said.
He traced that to a number of factors, and first mentioned Steve Cordts , his counterpart in Minnesota, who reported the state’s lowest-ever teal count.

“Steve said everything appears to be late this year, that there was a lot of water on the breeding grounds later than usual and a cool spring delayed the cycle,” Reynolds said. “He made the point that his state still had flightless ducks, that young birds had not fledged out and that successful (nesting) females had not completed the molt.”

Fledging is when young birds grow their flight feathers and molting restricts adult birds from flying because they have not regrown their flight feathers.

Reynolds said Cordts told him that the 34-degree mornings predicted in Minnesota later this week should push more birds to the Deep South.


Makes sense to me.....but what do I know???

I had followed the waterfowl spring migration and nesting conditions, diligently, so that would make sense. I was sort of waiting for the situation we now have, but hoping for a different outcome.

Well, the plus of that is that we will be shooting bluewings on the opener... :yes:

We decided to do Orange Marmalade Glazed Teal. Normally I would marinate them for 24 hours over night but it was not necessary with fresh teal. I injected them with a little Cajun Injector Roasted Garlic and Herb, seasoned them up, stuffed them with fresh sweet oranges and put dat onda pit!
Onda Green Egg for 10 minutes, first basting

After 2nd Basting of the glaze...15 minutes more and dey are done!

Done!!

I forgot the Dis n Dat Poultry seasoning so I used some LeBlanc's Cajun seasoning and a little Cavander's Greek seasoning....(a prior favorite combination for those elsewhere across the country). Cook dem for no more than 45 minutes on the green egg. temp should read 300* when you put the birds on, then fall to 225* on the thermometer. Once the birds heat up, when you pull them off, it should read 275~280*. Should take no more than 45 min for teal, 1 hour for widgeons or other medium ducks, and 1:15 for a mallard. I cook them by feel...I press the breast meat to check for doneness, but you could use a thermometer. I've cooked on this grill so often that I got it down pat.

I should have used a thermometer last year at the Byers cookout, those birds were over cooked a little.

not your fault swamp, they all messed up in regards to thyme in Arkansas
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

In Cason's Defense, he did offer a thermometer. I turned it down. Should have used it though...
Got carried away with cutting up and story telling and if I remember right I over shot the cooking thyme.

Well we have hundreds of thousands of coonass around us then... (learned somthin' new today...)


http://www.brownielocks.com/minnesotatalk.html - scroll to the D's

http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2013/08/1 ... -come-from - Last line

Some cultural jokes as well...

Ole and Sven went on an expensive fishing trip and returned with only one fish.
"The way I figger it, dat fish cost us $400," said Sven.
"Vell," replied Ole, "At dat price it's a good ting we didn't catch any more."

Ole told Lena one morning that he was going to chop down 20 trees in the woods with his ax and he would be done by suppertime. He worked and worked all day long and could only chop down one tree. He was so tired that when he came in for supper he went right to sleep without eating.
The next morning Ole gets up bright and early and tells Lena: "I am goin' into town to pick me up vun of dose chain saws. Dat der ax yust don't vurk to good." So Ole heads off into town and stops at the hardware store to buy a chain saw.
He tells the hardware store owner what he wants and the owner says: "Ah, here's the chain saw you want and it is guaranteed to cut down 20 trees in a day."
Ole gets all excited and says: "Dat's yust vhat I need! I'll buy it."
So Ole takes his new chainsaw home and gets up bright and early again the next day. He works all day and can still only cut down one more tree. He is beat red while he tells Lena: "Dis here chain is a piece of yunk! I am going to get my money back!!"
He storms back into town the next day to return the chain saw. He tells the hardware store owner: "Dis here chain saw you sold is defective. You told me I could cut down tventy trees and I could only cut down vun!!!"
The store owner looks puzzled and says: "Oh?, let's see if it works OK." The store owner proceeds to start up the chain saw and it runs perfectly normal. BRRUMMMM....Mmamamamama.....BRUMMMMM..mmamamamama
Ole jumps back in horror and yells: "VHAT'S DAT NOISE????"


It is interesting that there is a similarity in the 2 accents when it comes to the TH being replaced with a D.

I guess the big difference is that the coonasses up here can't cook like the coonasses down there...
