Some young Teche Area duck hunters got a sneak peek at what the waterfowl hunting season will bring during the youth duck hunt Nov. 5 on the Atchafalaya Delta Wildlife Management Area.

Cooler temperatures that morning greeted an estimated 40 youngsters who ventured to the popular WMA, according to Shane Granier, biologist manager for the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Coastal and Non-game Natural Resources Division. Granier said 23 duck hunters, who had to be accompanied by an adult, were checked that Saturday.
