Calcasieu Charter Service offers superior waterfowl hunting in the legendary fields and marshes of Southwest Louisiana, the heart of the Mississippi Flyway. We provide a quality hunt by offering complete comfort and superb hunting over realistic decoy spreads on the finest lands Southwest Louisiana has to offer.
Our lands are the winter homes to thousands of waterfowl. Every season gigantic flocks of Snows, Blues, Specklebelly and Canada geese surround our hunting areas. In addition numerous species of ducks, including mallards, pintails and teal flock here to feed and rest. Our guides have one goal, to make your trip a memorable experience each time you hunt with us.
Adjacent to the Lacassine National Wildlife Refuge, our lands consist of thousands of acres of rice, soybean and plowed fields on which some of the finest mixed bag gunning in the country may be had. Comfortable pit blinds, ATV's and experienced guides ensure a relaxed hunting experience which you are sure to enjoy.
The Louisiana waterfowl season runs from November to February. In the past several years we have enjoyed a liberal sixty day season with a liberal bag limit on both ducks and geese. There is an early teal season in September each year which is typically nine to sixteen days, followed by the standard waterfowl season beginning in early November. Our duck season is divided into two splits, the first of which takes place in November. The second split commonly opens in mid December and closes in mid to late January. The goose season runs from early November through early February.
You should make your reservations early to obtain your preferred time slot. We can comfortably accommodate up to 20 hunters and often experience a full house. We require a minimum of two hunters and do not mix hunting groups together in a blind or in rooms at our lodge.
Since we offer mixed bag hunting, our hunting success remains strong throughout the season. The first half of the season before the turn of the New Year is usually more productive for geese, although we have good success throughout the season. They do get smarter towards the end of the season and even though they are a little harder to fool in January and February, we still get plenty of opportunities. The ducks usually get better as the season progresses. Early season bags are filled with teal, pintails, gadwalls, shovelers and a few mallards. However, when winter begins to set in around Thanksgiving and the rains come, the mallards begin to show up in force and become the number one bird on our straps along with the specklebelly geese. Teal and pintails usually fill the rest of the bag limits, although it is not unusual to have six to eight different species of ducks and geese in your group's bag limit.
