    Larry Reynolds, the state’s waterfowl study leader for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, estimated there were only 59,000 birds during this week’s aerial flights over the state’s coastal zone, along with Catahoula Lake.

    This estimate is 84 percent lower than last year’s estimate of 373,000, 32 percent below the most recent 5-year average of 183,000 and 75 percent below the long-term average of 236,000, according to Reynolds’ report.

    Pretty good in Bell City. Full limits both weekends. Will be after them again next weekend because I don't see a cold front in sight.

    Though our drake to hen ratio didn't suggest full-on migration until the last weekend, teal being teal, it turned out to be my parties' numerical best September season in years. Never know 'til you go.
