Date Hunted 12/1/2018 Our first split down here in SE Louisiana has been way off our regular pace. Despite the slow action most of us in the duck club keep going out in the marsh duck hunting as often as we can with the hopes things will turn around and we might have a hunt that gets the blood going. I have been duck hunting 42 years. Saturday the duck Gods smiled on me with the shooting of a Mottled duck with a transmitter on its back and a band on the leg, a first for me. We were sitting there rather bored and about 8:30, we see a pair of Mottled ducks pass a good distance to the left side. Hit the duck call which is usually a waste of time they both come towards us one in range, I had the Benelli ready for the shot and knocked it down. Me and my buddy cranked up the boat to go get it and we were shocked at what we saw. Cha Ching!!! There is a phone number to call on the band and a phone number to call on the transmitter.
