Duck hunts on upper Texas and Louisiana coast marsh ponds have been very good.

Believe it or not, duck hunting here in Southeast Texas is still hit and miss. For example, the marsh down on the coast is holding big-time numbers of gadwall that are mixed in with a few pintails, teal and shovelers. The downside is that hunters west of Beaumont are finding very few birds.
