Duck hunters were stunned in July when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a four-per-day limit for scaup.
Don’t know that species? Hunters across south Louisiana call them “dos gris,” and “bluebills” on the East Coast.
The revelation that dos gris numbers had rebounded from all-time lows of four and five years ago (when the daily limit was two), was welcomed among the folks hunting the southeastern parishes, where lots of open water lures dos gris by the tens of thousands.
