Had a few birds but not nearly as many birds as they did Yahoos running around... Its never worth it out there1hour boat ride to find some one is in your blind or some one shows up at 730 and gets stuck on a sand bar 100 yards from your decoys and ruins your hunt. best bet is to walk in some where that a mud motor cant get to... and if you do happen to shoot birds better be there at 2 the next morning. People just dont have respect any more every one and there brother has a prodrive or gator tail and is gunhoe about running it.

it seems to be the same sad story for each WMA that does hold some ducks, but from what i can tell it is mostly those that have easy access. I believe the only way to get away from the idiots and ridiculous pressure is to go where no one else wants to go. In my opinion, if i were to try and hunt the atchafalaya delta area, i would launch out of berwick and go down river to that delta. The wax lake area is just to easy to get to and every yahoo will go down there to hunt.

You ever hunt out of Myette Point? I've allways wondered about the duck hunting in that area?? Like the back of crew boat shoot?

These areas are just to north of the delta. Myette point has a boat ramp and Crew boat shoot is a canal in the WMA.

ok that's Attap. WMA. I used to work with a guy that deer hunted that area alot and from what i've read i'm not sure that part of the atchafalaya is great for the ducks........it seems like to much swampy area that will mostly be good for wood ducks and the occasional mallard. One WMA i was curious about was the Sherburne WMA but that one seems the same.........more for deer with some duck spots. We normally hunt pointe aux chene WMA and lake boeuf (for pouldeau) and some ducks (lots of ruddy ducks and ringnecks out there). Lots of people too. My dad used to hunt Lake Cataouche /Lake salvador WMA years and years ago when he lived in westwego, so i think we may explore that WMA being as its freshwater and near the diversion keeping it fresh.

If anyone has any information as to what we can expect on the Salvador/Timken WMA nowadays please throw it out there.

Thanks,
