Saw a few in a cut/flooded milo feild between Bluntzer and Banquete this morning. But I believe all this water will have them scattered every where.

I saw a few. I just tell myself when it comes to teal, you just don't know if they are going to be there or not.

Going to see what the weather is doing in the AM and then decide on Go/No-go

Encourage by noon weather report. Sounded like tomorrow is just rain and no lightening.

Was supposed to be with them this morning but had to work.

We hosted a wounded veterans hunt this morning in SETX and ended the morning with a 9 man limit between two blinds. I can’t ever figure out how to post pics on here so I don’t have any pics to post.

The boys and got 12 yesterday in the rain. Not a great flight and decoyed poorly. Still a lot of fun. I think we were the low blind on our farm opening morning.

I didnít hunt this morning but sounds like i didnít miss much talking to my brothers.

We were 2 shy of a 4 man limit yesterday. Didnít hunt this morning. Sounds like we didnít miss anything though. I can honestly say that we were rusty as a group. Great hunt! Blessing Hunting Club for those interested.

Had a little rice rocket beatdown yesterday evening. 5 man limit. The smile says it all, I don't know how many birds she retrieved but I bet she picked up at least half of them. She had a blast.
