Default duck hunting

In your opinion would I be successful to put a small boat in and go down some of the creeks and sloughs that are off muddy bayou and get into some ducks? I've never been out there and was looking for some places to get on some ducks to get away from the people on catahoula. I'm not asking for no honey holes just some suggestions if they get ducks on those kinda areas.

I also forgot to mention I have an 12ft aluminum boat with trolling motor. I could also walk to a spot with waders if that was better option.

Well I have been trying that for a few years now and haven't had any luck with it, you can kill a few woodducks but you can't even be guaranteed to see anything

He is right, I have a camp at Dewey Wills for about 8 years now and been duck hunting it about 10 years. You will get a few teal and woodies where you talking about but Dewey Wills itself is a hit and miss as far as duck hunting goes. We have gone and limited out with 3 people in hardly no time and then sometimes we struggle to get half a one man limit.

Plenty of big ducks, teal, and woodies in the Green Tree. An aluminum boat with trolling motor would be perfect.

I see that its a hit and miss. I believe I will go out there and make a scouting run.

I've never heard of this green tree. It looks like some decent potholes. Is it loaded with people?

I've always been able to get a hole. The Mallard Hole and the ones next to it fill up first but I also like the middle and last hole on the left as you come into the parking area. Viewing the attached map, it's the holes on the far right or the southeast holes. They are all nice, clean holes. They get bush-hogged before they pump water into the rind levee.

Get there early, don't be playing around gathering your stuff up!! You should not have a problem, except the 2nd & 3rd holes on the left and the last two on the right end that TH has circled. I have, however hunted with several groups in the bigger potholes and both had success. Don't go to the 1st hole, everybody has to pass thru this one to get to all of the others on that row.

Late season tip, sleep late, be waiting on the levee at 9:30am. Wait for some people to come out and find out which hole they were in. The big ducks come in around 10:30-12pm, when all the boats crank up and leave at Catahoula Lake!
