It was the great duck hunting that first drew people to Bourbe Lake. The lake is known for a healthy population of resident wood ducks and the ability to draw a variety of big ducks like mallards and greys. Bourbe Lake holds it own compared to other lakes in the area. Wood ducks rule the skies at day break moving in all parts of the lake as they weave their way through the cypress trees with purpose. Later you will find good hunting during cold, mid morning blue-bird days when the really big flocks are looking for a quiet place to settle and rest for the day. There is not a finer sight then sitting in one of the blinds and being covered up in a flock of green heads. It is one of the biggest thrills on the lake.
