Ok so I have always heard stories from older guys around here that say they use to hunt on the Mississippi river it self. I live in Louisiana about 20 miles north of Baton Rouge, and have heard of older guys saying that they use to shoot limits of ducks hunting on the banks of the Mississippi river. My question is has anyone ever done it or heard of this? I have access to a lot of river front and the duck hunting is good when the water rises and floods the woods next to the river, so should I am thinking about giving the river itself a try this year. Any tips or ideas would help thanks in advance.
