If Iím not mistaken these counts donít include this summers hatch success. I think this is adult bird numbers. Nesting effort was good so we should have more participating ďyoung birdsĒ than the last few seasons.

Thats what its all about Blake. Good luck to y'all up there this season.

We are getting some rains to fill up our sloughs and will start pumping the pumps in a couple weeks, but I am headed to Colorado opening week to try to shoot some birds up there. Its been amazing the last few years.

The PPR was really wet and had a lot of nesting cover so how do they actually get accurate counts on spread out birds where the habitat is different area to area. I know how actually with their equations and algorithms but I just don't buy it every time.
I don't care for how they set season limits either but thats another story.
I am optimistic there will be a lot of young dumb birds to divebomb the spreads this year. Just depends on if they make it down this far and if you have water for them.

Correct, these numbers do not consider the hatch. With that said these numbers are the lowest in 20 years.

Lower, probably a lot lower.
The last couple of seasons have been the worst I have seen in 50+ years of duck hunting. Last season was beyond bad. Between me and some other good hunters it was bad from one end of the state to the other. Yeah there were some good hunts here and there but overall it was the toughest I have ever seen.
Their counts to me are about like the weatherman 's current rain total for n central tx. A bunch of BS! MAYBE the rain will come. Lol

Yep, it will be interesting how this season goes. I'm going to hunt hard no matter what and enjoy my days in the field. But every guide I know in the north texas area struggled big time last year. And these are top notch outfits.

But the good thing is we are inside 3 weeks from early teal season starting.

Same here! Lord willing I will hunt all 16 days of early teal and average 3- 4 days a week during the regular season. I just love being outdoors and watching everything !
Good Luck to you this season!

All other species not listed: 6

Yet I look at the breeding populations in the above table and see gadwall at 2.665 million, wigeon at 2.127 million, greenwing teal at 2.170 million, Northern shoveler at 3.041 million and none of these ducks have an individual species limit so you can shoot 6 a day.

I would say that gadwall, wigeon, GWT, and spoonies are easily all top 5 harvested ducks in texas.

But scaup are sitting at 3.599 million and you can only shoot 1 a day. I would say theres minimal difference in the numbers of pintails at 1.783 million and the numbers of GWT at 2.170million and wigeon at 2.127 million. Yet we can only shoot 1 pintail and 6 GWT or wigeon.

I understand the limit on canvasbacks and redheads.

It just doesn't make sense why some of these species, that make up a large portion of bag limits in texas dont have the same individual limits as some of these other species that do.

Just a thought I had while looking over the numbers.

It doesn't make any sense to me either, but that's how it's pretty much always been. I'll be very surprised if you're allowed a single pintail next year.

I haven’t noticed any teal around. Usually I’d be seeing some by now.

Pretty dang warm this week. Next week will be in the low 80s with cool mornings so I’d say there might be a few show up, then.

We had a big group of teal show up Thursday night. Went from seeing a few small groups Thursday to seeing big groups Friday. We had to go from pumping to save the native seed to pulling boards to keep from drowning it.

September 1 waterfowl season kicked off up here!!! Been a heck of a first 4 days, especially being my first season ever hunting ducks on my own and not with a buddy that is showing me the ropes or on a single hunt with a guide a year. Have learned a lot on just 4 days of hunting, especially when it comes to calling. Since the season opens so early up here a lot of birds are young or not plumed out yet. Canít wait for October when they look a lot better. Been hunting strictly marsh but am thinking of doing some river hunting in the next few days.

Couple teaser limit LDPís for the threadÖ

Opening morning, done by 7:00am with teal and wigeon


Yesterday and todayÖ

My folks are coming up to visit later this week and taking my dad duck hunting for his first time ever. Should be a pretty good time. Excited to try out some new backpack layout blinds I got that I’m thinking will be a game changer compared to using/building a blind.

I was out Saturday morning and had a group of 35 or so Canadians fly over just above the trees. Public lands. They were heading to a close by planted field. I just gotta figure out where they are roosting for the goose opener. They are in the west zone. But hope they stick around.

Monday, I noticed another local tank I watch for ducks to arrive, had a flock of about 20 Canadas on it. First time I've seen them there. These were 50 miles from the other group. No ducks on the tank though.

The fish are biting and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

Because of the drought, we got access to some places we have never been able to work before. The ranch really wants all the non- native plants and trees off, and the owner puts his pocketbook where his mouth is. They have spayed thousands of tallow trees, and I've been in a dozer knockin them down and piling them up to burn. Well... with all the rain down there lately, we didn't get to burn, but got a lot down, but many more to go. Here are a couple of videos. It filled back up in a week!
