DUCK HUNTING FORECAST – The Jungle area of Lake Livingston is known for Mallard and Wood Duck Hunting along with other species of Puddle Ducks.  The Jungle is one of the places to be in December if you are looking for a trophy Mallard or Wood Duck to mount. The Jungle area is boat access only being north of the 190 bridge and west of White Rock creek.  The area is public hunting so get there early.  Often it is worth the effort. Check with the Trinity River Authority for rules and regulations for hunting here.  Water levels can fluctuate with current conditions.  The Jungle can be hard on equipment and mankind.  Concealment is imperative for success with late season Mallards.  Smaller decoy spreads and a minimal amount of calling works best in December.  Always respect other hunters and good luck duck hunting Lake Livingston.
