‘Duck Camp Dinners’ Brings Southern Waterfowl Fare to Table

The latest web series from MeatEater features waterfowler and chef Jean-Paul Bourgeois and his deep roots in the Louisiana Bayou.

Hunting cultural traditions abound in the United States. And even waterfowlers have their various cultural niches. A Louisiana duck camp is a far cry from the snow goose hunts of the Dakotas or the flyway hunts of the midwest.

Chef Jean-Paul Bourgeois is embedded into the Louisiana net of Cajun duck culture. He also brings his passion for Cajun cooking to their remote camp in the bayou.

The six-episode series follows Bourgeois and friends from beginning to end. And it dives deep into a corner of the world most hunters have yet to discover.

Find three episodes right now via MeatEater’s YouTube channel. And luckily, there are three more in waiting.
