Browning family reunion in Haskell. I thought we were dry up here on the flat land but that part of the country is really hurting, all but two tanks have gone dry on our place. There are some birds in the area and i believe water is going to be the key to getting your limit.

Headed up to Breckenridge tonight for a weekend of hunts. We typically hit limits no problem but we are getting really bad bird number reports from friends out there. Nonetheless we'll be out there having a good time either way.

I live in Waller, definitely no birds there.

In Hondo and there are hundreds if not thousands of white wing flying over 90
