Over the last 8-10 days we've experienced just about every type of weather possible for Texas in January. Coming off breaking ice two weeks
ago; we were back in shorts, wading boots & sweating; 2-5" of rain; gale force winds; backside of the full moon; ground fog; sea fog; and now we're
cooling off again. If you're going to be successful waterfowl hunting in Texas you better be able to adapt to ever changing weather and ready
for just about anything!
Over this time period we have had some really good hunts; we have also had a couple that make us want to pull our hair out. Scouting would be an
understatement for the amount of miles our guides have been covering on a daily basis. Holding birds late season is just half the battle, getting
them in the hole is what separates the men from the boys.
We closed out crane season with an EPIC feet down beat down over the decoys! Not much rivals decoying sandhills, but you add the geese doing it right
as well late season and that'll upgrade any hunt. We have had some really quality duck shoots over the last week, including a good number of
birds heading to the taxidermist. Sometimes the final tally/straps don't tell the entire story of a hunt as much as the empty hulls laying around.
With cooler temperatures forecasted over the next week+/-, the snow geese should stick around into Ecaller season. We have also had a big influx
of greenwing teal which should help us close out this last week/weekend of duck season with a bang.
