Another great morning with a 5 man limit and picking up decoys by 7:25. Will say there werenít near as many birds in the air as yesterday though.

Quick limit in Garwood. 6 teal, 6 shots in 12 minutes, taking 1 bird out of a flock. Shooting a 28 ga with bismuth. The weather was nice on the prairie this AM. NNE breeze about 10 -12 mph & cloudy. Made it feel like a hunting day.

I've been checking my lease tanks in Starr County and haven't seen any birds. Do y'all think they haven't made down here yet? We've always seen big ducks during deer season, but I've never checked this early. Do I have to check the tanks early in the morning, or are the birds just not stopping there? Any advice welcome. I'm pretty much hooked after opening weekend lol

Usually hunting tanks in S. Texas is a first hour of daylight thing. Unless you catch a front moving through.

PSA. I ordered a case of shells from Mackís and they arrived like this. I am sure Mackís will make it right as they have always had good customer service but just wanted to give yíall a heads up. All 10 boxes were this way. These were 3Ē #3 blind sides, not typically what I shoot but they didnít have my 1 3/8oz #3 drylocks. Canít find those anywhere.[IMG][/IMG]

Pretty much how I got it home, pulled an old road sign out of the ground screwed to the tongue, added a couple ratchet straps for good measure and got it home.
Thanks to the guy at the ramp who gave me the idea lol.

Skunked in Starr County this morning. Set up on the wrong side of the pond. Did have some molted and divers land in my spread though. The tall just preferred the north end.
Tomorrow I should be able to tag my first Starr County bird

Garwood prairie. Had my son, daughter & DROEBUCK from TBH. Not alot of birds on the prairie by what we seen & shooting heard. We made the best of it though & with some lucky shooting ended up with half limits. Had a couple of reports from N of Brookshire. 1 was like our hunt & the other was 6 guys & 3 birds. Think we are gonna be scraping from now on unless you are on the X. Weather was fabulous though. 69 at daylight & 79 when we called it at 9:45. Be watching to see what this weather does now.
