2019 Annual Teal Duck Hunt

Mr. Reggie Knowles and Mr. Mackie Summers of the Stack Barrel Hunting Club coordinated the 7th Annual Charity Teal Duck Hunt over the beautiful Alan Hebert coastal rice lands of Southwest Louisiana on 15 – 17 September 2019, enabling injured Soldiers, Sailors and Marines to enjoy Warrior/patriot camaraderie and the finest Teal duck hunting in the world. The hunt was a resounding success and the participating Warriors enjoyed having those quick, acrobatic Teal ducks “twist their gun barrels” into pretzels! The Louisiana Department of Fisheries And Wildlife gave two-day out-of-state and in-state license waivers to the participating Warriors and the Louisiana Wildlife Agents Association provided Duck Stamps for each participant. Guides with retrievers donated two days of services in support of this annual Warrior hunt and meals were provided by and prepared by generous Louisiana patriots Mark Gary and his family, and Mr. Bobby Letard. Being in Southwest Louisiana, the food prepared and served to the Warriors was far better than any that can be found in commercial restaurants and the Warriors did not have a hungry moment! One Warrior weighed when he returned to his home base and declared that he gained 7 pounds!

Mr. David Bertrand opened his "Camp David" lodge to participants and provided a beautiful, historic South Louisiana venue for breakfast service. Sgt. Buddy Murray, Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries, personally donated two days of his time and resources to lead two veterans on a guided hunt and put his great Labrador retriever to work retrieving downed Teal ducks. Hunting with fine retrievers is a joy most Americans have never experienced, and the retrievers add a dimension to hunting that can only be appreciated by those who experience the joys of hunting over great dogs. The Warriors prepared for the hunt by shooting 3,250 target loads at clay targets in advance of the hunt.

The hunt was supported by Apex Transportation LLC in addition to generous cash support donations from local event supporters and guides.
