Waterfowl Hunting
Located in the Mississippi waterfowl flyway, migrating ducks and geese are always on the move giving you the opportunity to harvest a variety of species each day. It’s not uncommon at all for a 3-man group to take up to 10 different species on a daily basis.
Trips are available in Louisiana and feature bass, bream, crappie as well as inland coastal options for redfish and trout. Bass and panfish outings are very popular in the spring and summer as well as afternoons in waterfowl season. During waterfowl season we have 2 stocked ponds where you can enjoy catch and release. Redfish and speckled trout trips are scheduled in the spring and summer in the Houma and Venice Louisiana areas.

  • Best operation I've ever hunted! Excellent guides and accommodations. Relaxed atmosphere in the blind as well as the lodge! They let you hunt ducks your way. Wanna let the birds work and come in close, no problem. Take the opportunities as they come to get that full limit, sure thing. Let you shoot your own birds so you know whose band that is, absolutely! Whatever you're enjoying these guys will work their tail off to make it happen. Love the way they chase down cripples too, good ethics and good conservation practices here. Great group of real people, highly recommended! January 19, 2017

  • Had a excellent hunt with Blake and his son Hunter! The lodge was very nice and the food was excellent! It was great to see there love for family, clients, and duck hunting. They work very hard to put you on the birds and will hunt until you say uncle. Would not hunt with any other outfitter after this experience!

  • Won this 1 day trip for 3 hunters from a Ducks Unlimited banquet. Drove down from the Nashville area in Tn with a couple buddies and the minute we arrived we were welcomed by everyone at the lodge. We unloaded went up to the living area and put our stuff in the room and started to talk with the other hunters. Dinner was ready about 6ish that consisted or fish, alligator, cole slaw, and hush puppies. Let me tell you the food was AMAZING! Desert was apple pie and ice cream. Needless to say I went to bed stuffed. Next morning we headed out about 5 to the blind. Boats are top notch Gator Tail boats. The hunt started a little slow due to weather conditions but Bucky did what he does best and as the weather became more in our favor so did the ducks. He mad sure we filled our limits(stayed out even a little longer then he had to) which impressed me a lot. Other outfitters would not have cared but Bucky and Full Strap and Stringer love to hunt as much as the next man so they go over and beyond to make sure your experience is great. Thank you to all the people involved with Full Strap and Stringer, your outfit is top notch. I would highly recommend their service to anyone looking for a great guided hunt. Also I would like to thank them for donating the hunt to Ducks Unlimited. This just shows they are all for the ducks and the conservation to help them. January 3, 2017

  • Great hunting by these guys right here. I've been with them once, and it is definitely not the last time. They run a 5-star operation that includes excellent hunting, a nice lodge, and a great experience on the water. They are very honest about the hunting when you book a hunt because they want the best for you. The guide I went with, Taylor Bates was top of the line also. So give them a call to book a hunt. Thanks Mr. Blake Soileau for this great operation. December 23, 2016

  • Absolutely the best guide service I have ever used. Hunted three days in a row with Bucky opening weekend and the family environment and professionalism is unmatched. The birds were everywhere, blinds are in great condition and the overall experience was fantastic. Full Strap and Stringer puts a total team effort in to everything they do. Thanks for the memories and the new friendships. November 21, 2016
