The clock is ticking on the 2013-14 duck season in the East Zone, which includes all of northeast Louisiana. The second split in the East ends Sunday, January 26. A special one-day youth hunt is scheduled for Feb. 1. I miss the cut on that one by a few days…Check your regulations pamphlet for details in your area.
Hunters have had the privilege of having some later dates for duck hunting in recent years but water conditions, weather patterns and the fact that ducks have been shot at in 16 states for four months makes the end of the season hunting tough for the most part.
If you are a die-hard hunter, strap on the waders and get out there before the sun sets on yet another season. And be ready to break a little ice!
