Louisiana Coastal Duck Hunt

We had the great fortune to have a Louisiana top-shelf chief and friend who hosted us for a coastal duck hunt a few weeks ago. We hunted with local guides out of Holly Beach, about two hours east of Houston. The weather was warm, and the mosquitoes were thick, but we all had a terrific time. Complimenting the duck hunt was incredible Louisiana cuisine from our friend Grant. He has a deli and grocery in Baton Rouge that you can check out HERE. Venison roast, gumbo, fried shrimp and catfish, boudin, shrimp and sausage pasta, and muffuletta were all on the menu. Oh my, it was all so good!

This is Doc. He is not scanning the skies, but staring at his pal, our guide Graham.

Our accommodations – The General Lee! This was perfect, on Holly Beach.

We were taken to the fixed blinds by boat.

Happy hunters.

Heavy fog on the second day added some interesting variety.
