I've only seen 1 bird so far. Wonder if Chino is doing some shooting. He's across the road.

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

Birds or no birds, that was fun! It was great to meet some new folks. And of course see some familiar faces as well.


I saw 5 birds total. But only 1 in range, for about 2 seconds. I think the consensus is that the rain had em locked down. That private field the shooting was had on, didn't last very long.


Maybe the afternoon or even hunt will be better. I'll let yall have those , for now.
Too hot out for me.

We need to do this, 2023, or late season this year, do it again, and see if the Corp will let us have a campsite for a couple of hours for a potluck lunch. It’s a pain in the dark to meet and greet, what did we have12-15?

And late season is usually better, and cooler, so we don’t have to hear TG ***** and moan.

I counted 16 participants.


And thanks for bringing the soggy donuts. They were appreciated by all.



And late season would be awesome!
I don't have a dog any more. So I hope to spend some time camping this year, when it's cooler out.

Sorry we missed you guys this morning. We got there about 6:20 and you had already walked in. We went east and didn't see but one bird on the sit but jumped 3 on the way out.

I saw feathers flying though.

I enjoyed it from the house. Had family business to take care of this morning. But got to enjoy the temps with a power walk before heading over there. It was 68 here also. But not now!

I was out at B1 Dove hunting yesterday, but driving by H2 looks a little better for Dove. Could someone tell me is the entrance to the parking area just before that stupid 1 way bridge light? Or is it somewhere else. Thank you

Yes, before the light. And right at the end of the guardrail. There's a little road that runs beside the bridge that takes you down below it on the east side of 174. There are two gates at the bottom below the bridge. One is for H2. The other is for H1. Just don't get stuck down there. Turning around can be tight sometimes, pending how grown up it is down there. If cattle are being run on H2, the road down is usually pretty cleared. Some folks park on top on the side of the road going down in there.

It was very overgrown yesterday when I drove by it. I donít think anyone had been down it yet

Ok thanks, @Texas Grown, I thought that might me the right spot there, but it looked like it went down some where another there but also being in a 2 wheel drive light truck and alot of rain, didn't wanna just randomly drive down there and get stuck to see if it was the spot or not. @Jeremy ok, so probably stay safe and park off the road and just walk down, last thing I wanna do is have to pay a tow truck to pull me out or get towed...plus my phone is very spoty in that area

So I'm gonna put this here so hopefully our little group will see it first. Since I'm still in town and will be it looks like until April/May, and since I'm kinda, sorta, semi-retired in a I'm lazy and don't want to work anymore way, and since I haven't sold my duck boat and all the stuff that goes with it, I will have some openings this duck season for a spot or two. I usually hunt a lake close the the DFW metromess. If you are in the metromess and don't have a boat, or have private ponds and don't have the gear, I'm making the front seat available. Heck, even if you have a boat and gear you can set in it. I'd like to take several hunters over the course of the season. I can probably hunt a day or two each week and the days are open. Mornings are best. I don't see much on the lakes I hunt in the evening.

Secondly, I'm going to put in for all the E-postcard duck hunts except Alazan Bayou and Big lake bottoms. If some want to team up on an application let me know. You'll have to have a public lands permit and of course a federal duck stamp. The draw deadline is Oct 1 so we will need to get on it soon. If you are interest pick some dates and places. I'm thinking different groups for different locations if I get a lot but I'm open to ideas. I usually draw something each year so if I don't draw I will blame you...

My youngest has moved to Abilene so we won't be hunting much together. I've burned all my Wyoming points and can't use my Colorado points until I get my butt off the couch and start working out and Arizona hunts won't happen until January so...

PM me and I will try to get back with you this coming week sometime. I will send you a response with a number letting you know your place in line. You'll need a set of waders, shotgun and shells. (non-toxic, which is somewhat of a misnomer since if you hit them with it that's pretty toxic in my book).

Also, my honey holes work some parts of the year and don't others but I usually see a few ducks. I wouldn't expect limits though.

We need some more rain, really bad! Overall, lakes in Texas are very low with the Colorado and Brazos lakes being the lowest. The Trinity lakes are losing quickly also.


Some of the Brazos lakes:

Whitney is 6.85 feet low.
Aquilla is 4.51 feet low, a lot for such a shallow lake that floods easily.
Waco is 9.53 feet low. I bet you could scoop the hybrids up by hand.
Proctor is 7.34 feet low.
Belton is 9.17 feet low.
Stillhouse is 8.83 feet low.
Lake Georgetown is 15.14 feet low.


I'll leave it at that without listing the rest. Granger and Grandbury are the only ones not low, but still below normal at -1.59 and -1.61 respectably.

I spent a little time discussing with the Army Corps of Engineers at Whitney about a subject that has come up on my radar several times over the last several years concerning Exotics on the land there. It is determined that all exotics are off limits. Whitetail and pigs are the only legal big game there. That means, should you see any, it is strongly recommended that you let them walk. And remember, that this is Federal land. And not state land. Taking one could result in not just in state charges, but also federal charges.

Thanks TG.

It’s good to know.
I saw a nice axis buck few years back. I saw thinking about killing it, if I saw it again.
Off course, I didn’t happen.
