Guided Duck Hunts

New Orleans duck hunting

Duck hunting charters in New Orleans marshes are a great way to spend a day. Grab your hunting gear and get ready for an unforgettable experience

Ellender Charters offers duck hunting in the beautiful marshes of Terrebonne Parish. Terrebonne Parish's waters are fed from the Atchafalaya River. This abundance of fresh water makes Terrebonne Parish's marshes thrive with vegetation, as well as wildlife.

Duck hunting is a big part of our region and a big reason why South Louisiana is considered a sportsman paradise. For this reason and my love for duck hunting, Ellender Charters now offers guided duck hunts. Some of the common ducks are blue-winged teal, gadwall (grey ducks), ringnecks, and mottled ducks. Some of the other ducks we take are redheads, scaup, canvasbacks, mallards, and widgeon. A coot is another waterfowl that are fun to shoot and good to eat.

The 2015-2016 Duck and Coot season for Terrebonne Parish is from Nov. 7 - Dec. 6 and Dec. 19 - Jan. 17.

What should I expect?

A typical hunt involves riding in a boat anywhere from 5 - 45 minutes to get to the blind. Some blinds are platforms, where we get out of the boat and stand on a platform to hunt, other blinds require us to hunt from the boat. We will need to be in the blind about 45 minutes before sunrise. The hunt will usually last 1-3 hours. This really depends on how well the birds are flying and if you are going fishing after the hunt.

What Do I Need To Bring?

You need to bring a shotgun, non-toxic shotgun shells (no lead shot), a hunting license, hearing protection and camouflage clothing. You should also bring drinks and something to snack on while in the blind. If you have any questions about what you can and cannot bring, please feel free to ask.
