Grosse Savanne Waterfowl and Wildlife Lodge, LA

Our 50,000 acres of coastal wetlands, prairies, and agricultural fields play host to fabulous populations of migratory waterfowl. Millions of ducks and geese migrate to Louisiana during the fall and winter to feed on aquatic plants and seeds not available in other regions. Hunting lodge guests will hunt several species of ducks, including mallards, pintail, gadwall, and teal, along with white-fronted geese and snow geese.

"I fished Miller's Lake the afternoon and it was spectacular. There are not many Lodges that can say they have a Bassmasters Elite fisherman guiding on their Lake. I fished with Dennis and it was an incredible experience. The fishing was great but being able to talk with a fishing professional about what he is looking at and how he approaches fishing was an experience that was second to none. We hunted ducks in their managed marsh which was managed perfectly with perfect water levels. We shot our birds out of a blind that was brushed where we were concealed, comfortable, and able to shoot without restriction or obstacles. Our guide Graham was very personable and professional and had an excellent young dog. We told him that while we were there to hunt ducks, we were equally interested in allowing his dog to learn the game and were just fine with passing birds while watching good dog work.
The Grosse Savanne experience is a true testament to the Sportsman's Paradise."

"We arrived at the stately eye-popping lodge, staffed with helpful and service minded staff who made us feel at home with great beverages a fine evening meal and plush accommodations. Morning turn out with coffee and guides who really put the time in to make the hunt a great one. Short boat ride to the newly installed blind where we sit in comfort until legal shooting time. When the shooting starts, hang on to your hats, because it is fast and furious. Limit can come quick or it may take a bit, but its not because of lack of ducks. Return back to the lodge for a grand breakfast with all the trimmings. It's the best classic duck hunt that you can find."

Additional Thoughts:Chef David Yantis, is one of the best.
"Staying at Grosse Savanne is like a stay at the Ritz Carlton. Outstanding accomodations, gourmet food (a lot of it), top shelf libations, you name it, they've got it. Hunting and fishing great to. Knowledgeable, very capable guides, all with good retrievers, blinds perfect. Setups for all weather conditions. Lake fishing boats, rods, reels, best money can buy.
Been going for 15 years, the highlight of my year.
