Duck season: Cautious optimism
This time last year, duck hunters were enthusiastic about the prospects of a super season just ahead. Reproduction was good up north so lots of waterfowl would be winging down to Louisiana to spend the winter.
What looked like a great season ahead turned out to be an overall disappointment. Roger Goodell-like factors entered the picture over which Louisiana’s duck hunters had no control, sort of like what happened to the New Orleans Saints this season.
