    ...and therein lies the dilemma. Without Federal help we're screwed.

    If the feds, and everyone else, doesn't truly deal with your habitat loss, it won't matter what happens north of you. Y'all couldn't handle the ducks you used to get if they did come down. Obviously that doesn't help in the short term, but it's your habitat that is hurting your hunting the most.

    I don't believe that at the moment. I might see that to my extreme east (South of NAW-LINS), but from the wax Lake outlet to the Texas state line, not so much.

    I know you don't, and I understand your reasoning. I just disagree, and the experts I've talked to thus far agree with me.

    We've had a dry summer this year and no storms, yet. Most of the SW marsh has produce a good stand of natural seed plants this year. We'll see if anything shows up, and more importantly, hangs around a while.

    I hope the weather gets brutal by the middle of December. For one, I love the back and forth we get with LA with pintails and mallards when fronts are hitting right. Two, when the weather is right, the corn clubs here are dead and we kill all the ducks.

    We thought that last year, but it didn't materialize. I'm very anxious to see what this year brings. I'll be in the blind in the morning hoping for a few blue wing. I'll be headed to the camp in just a bit. :D

    Cold came too late last year to really make the difference we're talking about. I'd planned to be halfway to LA right now for teal, but had some issues arise.

    When was the last time you tried using a Federal bureaucrat approved gas can?

    Quite often. I get your point, but it's all we have.
