Ducks – it’s a passion. The Robertson men are known for hunting ducks! They love the outdoors and being in the woods. If it’s not hunting season, they are getting ready for the next season. Clearing land, planning food plots, blowing up beaver dams, hunting squirrels or anything that is in season. If your passion isn’t hunting ducks, we hope you will find whatever your passion is.

  • Top 10 Ducks for Eating

     
    Before we get started I will admit that this is solely my opinion. Depending on what part of the country you live in, I may have this list backwards. 
     

    10.  Scaup  

    At the bottom of my list lies the fast flying Scaup, AKA “Blackjack,” AKA “Dos Gris.”  These birds have saved a many slow day due to their...

  • Split's over

    During the split here in Louisiana we always head somewhere. This time it was Arkansas.

    We usually go there to hunt with W.E. "Redawg" Phillips. He moved there 14 years ago when his wife took a great job opportunity. Better still, it was close to where some guys lived that we met at the DU "Great Outdoors Festival" in Memphis. They would come every year to see us and to look around the show. They always invited us to...

  • If You Ain't First, You're Last

    The first split has come and gone here in the east zone of Louisiana and actually none of us are too sad to see the break.  You always anticipate skies full of birds that have hardly been hunted in past year and this year that simply was not the case for the most part.  The first two days were good as they always are, but after that it began to get tough quick.  Early season birds started acting like late season birds and we just simply were not seeing the numbers...

  • Decoy Speads

    Duck season has been in full swing for some and is just about to begin for others. As the season gets closer I always get a few questions about decoys.

    1. How many do I use?

      Early in duck season you will notice the migration is still going on and you'll see big bunches of ducks. So you need to use as many as possible at the beginning of the season. As the season goes on and the ducks get to your area you'll notice they break down into smaller groups so you can start to...

  • A Speck In Your Brother's Eye

    Well it's the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year!  In Louisiana we get a two-week warm up before duck season known as early goose season. During this season you can take snow geese and white fronted geese A.K.A. specklebelly, specks, yuck a lucks, and ribeyes. You will be hard pressed to find a better eating bird than a speck. He tends to be a very particular eater. He prefers grain over everything else so therefore he eats like grain fed beef.

    I have always been...

  • Rain is a Good Thing

    I know what you’re thinking. 

    You’re thinking rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey, whiskey makes my baby feel a little frisky, and so on.  To a certain extent you and Luke Bryan would be correct, but that is not what I am referring to here.  As of two weeks ago much of the south was in a pretty significant drought.  As duck hunters, we were excited and nervous all at the same time.  We were excited...

  • October Lull

    This term is generally used among hunters to describe the lack of deer movement seen before the rut begins in earnest.  For duck hunters in Louisiana, it has a completely different meaning.  To waterfowlers, it refers to the time of year between our early Teal season and regular duck season.  Teal season is a great warm up but it also sort of a tease.  It only lasts for two weeks so just as you feel you are getting into the swing of things its over.  You get all the...
