I've about quit now. Mallards just aren't here. Hunted just about everywhere around here and nothing.

Not for the people up north. Everything thing I've heard from way up north is nothing but mallards and alot of them.

I'm not seeing the amount of mallards that I did even from last year. Not a whole lot of flight birds.

If this recent historical polar vortex blast with all its record setting subzero temperatures won't cause the mallards to continue on down toward us, nothing will. It really makes you wonder why there are hardly no more flight days anymore.

The thing I've noticed the most apart from the duck dynasty crowds is there isn't enough people hunting the amout of water here what few birds are here have little pressure on them I've been hunting hard but a good day is real scarce the past couple of years

Flight days are in December...contact the LDWF commission and tell them you want to hunt more in December...in January think small as Toledo suggested...

Most years the month of January is when the mallards pile up here and I start killing. But haven't found them yet. Plenty of flooded timber around and no birds still.

Northeast Louisiana has hundreds of thousands of acres of flooded fields and timber right now. Most of them are void of ducks. I mean vast acres of emptiness. Duck hunting here is now, for most, a sad joke.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

If you could read on a first grade level, you would know we are talking about NELA not NWLA. But enjoy your excitement about your one good hunt.

bawhahahahahahah its the infamous UR....

Glad to see you havent been banned from every site....


Been killing birds all year bud and has been average to above average season for my blind only thing we are missing is woodies, but thats not a bad thing just odd. As for 2 of my buddies groups it has been the best on record! So keep complaining about your lack of ducks. One more thing retard the reason I put NW LA in post was to identifiy my report as being such as I knew it was a NE La thread. I was attempting to offer a report from another area of state to give a broader view then your same ole pit blind youve been hunting all season.

I have been missing the woodies too. Kind of weird. Nice to have them to help scratch out that limit but haven't hardly seen or killed any.

Last week was the week to hunt. Darbonne refuge was slam full
of mallards. Went back yesterday and today and saw maybe twenty
each day compared to the thousands we were seeing in the timber.
They all just left. I guess they went back to arkansas after it warmed
back up. But that was the most ducks I've seen in a spot u can hunt in
four years.
