This unique Southeast Louisiana marsh is located just minutes from downtown New Orleans. It features quality duck hunting and deer hunting opportunities as well as prime fishing. Alligator income sources from gator tags and egg collection available as well. It includes approximately 655 acres of land. This marsh is accessible  from Bayou Barataria and is just minutes from Joe's Landing.  This tract is healthy marsh with intermittent land and island highlights. Excellent waterfowl feeds are prevalent such as Widgeon Grass, Duck Weed and others. This tract and the entire Lafitte/Barataria Estuarial Basin has a rich historical heritage. Early century market hunters, armed by devastating punt guns harvested dozens of duck with one deadly shot. The waterfowl were then sold to restaurants in the New Orleans and French Quarter area. Locals as well as tourist feasted on this tasty wild game prepared in a variety of fashions. It was not unusual for a single market hunter to take over 500 ducks in one day. The practice was eventually outlawed by the Lacey Act in 1918. Market hunters frequented the Lafitte Land tract. Jean Lafitte, the Pirate turned Privateer added to the color and rich heritage of the Lafitte Barataria settlement. This area was central to both his smuggling as well as his legitimate privateering activities. He and his band of Baratarians were critical in the United States victory in the Battle of New Orleans January 8th, 1815. His activities are well featured and tastefully documented in a quaint Museum at the Jean Lafitte Tourism Center. As an available option, a Lodge facility on a barge gives an ability to accommodate 45 sportsmen. See Photos of Lodge facility in pictures.
