Check the TPWD website and local body of water governing agencies. Each has its own restrictions. Good Luck! Coach

Texas is pretty broad search area. I'd start with the texas annual public hunt permit book. Also look at corps of engineers lakes in your area. Often you can find information by searching "lake name hunting". Dont know much about coastal hunting.

Your not gonna get a lot of responses on this, most duck hunters are tight lipped and are not even gonna name the lake they hunt. I hunt private land, public land is a mess and way to much drama.

You'll have better luck asking for naked pictures of public land hunter's wives than you would their spots. Lots of good info thru TPWD. Good luck to you though.



....and if you do ask and receive any naked pics of public land hunter's wives, please PM them to me. I'm making a scrapbook.

East Tx you can hunt most lakes. As mentioned, check with each lake as to rules and hunt boundaries. Fork, Toledo, Rayburn, Lake O Pines, Palestine, Navarro Mills, Richland Chambers can all be really good.

Weekends are crowded with people who'll shoot at ducks a mile away and a mile high. Many have NO IDEA of the effective range of a shotgun.

If you're able to hunt mid-week, you might have more success.

Not too difficult to have success on public land...just find public land close to you. Then do the opposite of what every other hunter is doing. If they use large spreads and mojos, throw out a small spread. If they are all calling their arses off, donít call. If they are all on big water, find small water, if they are all hunting on Saturday, hunt during the week. If they are all hunting out of big blinds, hunt in natural cover. You get the idea.

I killed a lot of birds on public land in my college years, but I had time, scouted a lot, and observed a lot of other hunters.

Default Duck hunting on public land

I hunted star lake for 13 or 14 years and limited out most times. Limits of 24 to 30 many days. Tick Magnet and I have hunted out there from 1996 to around 2010 and then it just got to be too hard of work to justify the means.

Go to the Migratory Bird section on THF and ask that question.....you will quickly find that duck hunters are the most sensitive group on the planet and every lake in Texas is a secret that nobody else knows about......also use google earth to find out of the way ponds on "other" hunting areas, LBJ grasslands, Caddo grasslands, etc......then scout, a lot of them may not have water with the drought. On public, if it's easy for you to get to then it's easy for everybody. And remember, as on THF, if you are hunting public and you don't get any ducks it's every other hunter on that lakes fault, not yours......many duck hunters, at least the online ones, were born experts and it's all the rookies that ruin their hunts.....I sometimes go there just to yank their chains

Oh, on Ray Roberts on the weekends when I drive to work virtually every bridge has trucks parked at them, weekdays very few. There is one group I see a lot and they evidently have permission to cross private ground and they must do ok because they hunt a lot and always parked in the same spot at private gate which I'm sure shortens their walk immensely and with all the timber it would be a heck of a boat ride in the dark.

Just get a few feeders and trail cams. Set them in some likely areas and go from there. The animals get used to the dinner bell everyday. Once they are good and trained, showing up everyday you hunt.

Almost as easy as deer hunting except the shots are harder.

Bingo.


I hunt public land almost exclusively anywhere from 3-4 days weekly and we do fairly well. As far as spots, the TPWD public land book and google earth is your best friend, your next best friend would be a good pair of binos, lots of gas money, windshield time and a boat if you have one.

For east Texas North Toledo Bend WMA. Haven't hunted it in years but I used to hammer the ducks there every winter. 90% of the time we limited out. That was back in my high school days so things might have changed. We used to just about have the place to ourselves for ducks. Most folks were chasing deer and squirrels.

For TPWD WMAs, you'll need a APH permit.

http://tpwd.maps.arcgis.com/apps/web...7b49206e8ef153

If there is a lake you want to hunt, find out who manages it. Then look at the rules for that lake. Each one is different, but if duck hunting is allowed, you'll need to see where. Most have designated areas.

Here is a ton of information that you can comb through for more info:

Used to hunt Lake Tawakoni growing up in '70s. Great success in flooded timber and below the dam on the Sabine River backwater. Fast forward four decades: have tried to hunt Granger Lake with little success and a lot of work; discouraging enough to quit trying here. Not to be negative. That's when I took up bow hunting with a trad bow. Guess I'm a glutton.

BTW, Curt is right. If I had a great place, I probably wouldn't tell you.
Reason: ducks move from hunting pressure; scarce resource.

Just hunted Ports Mansfield this past thanksgiving break. 4 of us put in with a Jon boat out of Port Mansfield and hunted the public land south. It took about a 20minutes to get to. In 4 days we harvested 80 birds. Hundreds of thousands of red heads located in Port M, you just need to let them fly and pick out the other species. We didn't even use built blinds. We took a machete and cut down some mangrove trees on the island and set them in front of us. Perfect hunting blind. To bring in the ducks all you need is a decent set of decoys. We even shot two geese. Great time.

Had a hunting lease on San Antonio Bay next to the Aransas refuge. While wade I noticed the ducks didn't pay much attention to you if you didn't look at them and the late morning fishermen moving around in the bay stirred them up a good bit. Pretty easy to get a limit pass shooting ducks.

If you want to kill many birds, you will need to scout the hunters and the birds. There are some places that have been listed already where you can kill plenty of birds and be an avg hunter.

I have hunted public land around lake Whitney. There can be some good hints, but stopped hunting it because of the amount of people who aren't afraid to set up right on top of you. I have also hunted the coast a few times. I have never had much luck on the coast hunts.

I remember early 2000's, I hardly ever saw public land duck hunters, guess it wasn't a cool thing to do. Then the duck dynasty thing happened and it got stupid, funniest thing was how many of them had long beards like the reality show guys

Hunted the Opener of the second split in Matagorda this past weekend. About 45 minutes before shooting light a boat pulls up and says "you're gonna have to get out of our blind or scoot over" Them locals sure are touchy and protective about "their" blinds on public land. Oh, and we didn't get out of the blind.

If you want a honey hole, get on google earth and start finding water. Use that with the local GIS for the county to find land owners. Then either call them or send them a nice letter asking for permission. I highly suggest you try this during the summer before the season starts. But you'd be amazed at how few folks who own land give two cheets about ducks.
