There's a couple guys here from LA. I'd say moving from NE to LA is a net positive for duck hunting. Very, very much a positive! :lol: I'm a little jealous.

I live in south La south of I10 and I hunt the Atchafalaya basin and the wax lake outlet other than people gettin in your spot its not a bad place to hunt but if u don't have a surface drive u better get ur legs in shape cause to walk in the wax kinda sucks iv done it quite a few times and has paid off well

Labs work really well out here because the water is fairly shallow

By the time duck season opens most of the gators are hibernating and the ones that stay out in the winter are mostly small ones I've seen some big enough to eat a dog. During the winter but they are usually slow because its cold. Me personally have never heard of anyone losing a duck dog to a gator during duck huntin I used to hunt deer with dogs and the odds of snake or gators is low. I have bever hunted anywhere else so I don't know what other places are like. But if u make it down here and need a lay of the land hit me up there is only so many public hunting placed but the ones we have are good

Ok thank you sir for your help I will do that, I just don't want to break the bank though on a spot for me and the dog. When we do move I'll check back with you thank you so much.

private blinds can get expensive in the south west part of the state from Kaplan to Welsh but u can find some good public lands u can hunt with a boat blind, ive always hunted public land ammo and gas are the only things that really cost

I wouldn't be I've never heard of a hunter loosing a dog to a gator in the winter they are so sluggish if they aren't buried underground hibernating I honestly think u would be fine hunting with ur dog down here. Maybe if u do make a hunt talk to some if the local hunters and get their opinions for the area but me personally havnt heard of someone losing a dog to a gator and I usually hunt the marshes
