3rd scouting trip

Posted August 17th, 2009 at 04:03 PM by Ricky Aucoin

I took my 3rd scouting trip down to the Delta this morning. Grass is extremely high and thick as expected at this time of year. Had a good bit of rain/tidal water onshore at places. If we can avoid any tidal surges, before Oct. 1, there are plenty of wild peas for them to eat.

    Is it a must to use a boat to hunt the delta? Moving to thibodeau in December to go to college down there, trying to scout my options in that area...

    Yes it is about a 35 to 50 minute ride down the river to the Delta depending on the size of your motor.

    I'm currently a college student (Nicholls)from Berwick and have hunted the Duck Lake area(spillway) most of my life. Plenty of deer there but very hard hunting. You just dont see the number of quality deer there due lack of deer management for extented number of years. I've done my fair share of duck hunting on the Delta but never any deer hunting. Any tips for someone new to the area? I know hunting the delta is all about getting away from everyone else. I was looking mostly to hunt marsh/woodline transitions.

    The marsh/woodline transition is a very good technique to use at the Delta. You will find trails all along those areas and I try to catch them traveling to and from--early and late. It is very thick out there right now, plenty of browse but hard scouting. But you need to get out there and look around. Deer sign is everywhere, you just have to decide if the spots you want will be accessed by a lot of other guys. The harder it is to get to a spot, the better chance you will have of not being disturbed by other hunters. Good luck!
