With near record warm temperatures draped across Southern Louisiana, a Thermacell was a necessity in the duck blind. But the gadwall (or grey ducks) were around in good numbers and daily limits are there for the taking. Mixed in to the bag was a token mallard, black duck, ringneck, shoveler, blue-winged teal and green-winged teal. Lots of water hyacinth and duck potato around right now, and water levels are decent. The best shooting should be yet to come.
