I figure either way will be expensive.
You can take or buy there, a medium size cooler, use dry ice and secure it with duck tape. You can check it like an extra bag. $40 on American Airlines.

No kidding! I don't much care for puddle ducks, sure wouldn't pay extra to ship home sea ducks! I would mail ones I wanted for the wall to Birdman before I left and be done with it!

Why shoot them if you or someone else ain't going to eat them? I guess for the facebook pics? Kudos to the guy for wanting to try them.

Prasek’s can make any duck taste good in a tamale. I bet the sea ducks would be the same.

Quite a few, just gotta put in the work to figure which ones produce. Public ducks ain't easy to stay on, and most guys who can are tight lipped for good reason. Buy the annual hunt permit from tpwd and they'll send you a book with all the places and rules. Try a few near you.

Enjoy this season, because all indications are that they are going to severely cut bag limits and season length next year. Pray for a lot of snow/rain on the Canadian prairie next spring.

About time. We've had liberal limits and "record numbers of birds" for the last few years, yet all I've heard is part timers whining there's no ducks. Cut the limit, help the birds, and weed out a bunch of duck dynasty wannabes in the process. Sounds like a win.

Cutting limits doesn't do as much as you think for the population. It's all about nesting habitat and predator control. I've been duck hunting for over 50 years, and I haven't seen any correlation between supposed duck numbers and the number that I kill either. Yea, I'd like to see fewer of what I call the "social media duck darlings", but they will move around and still hunt wherever they can to get their 15 minutes of fame.

It's one thing to reduce the limits for short term, but one thing I have seen from Saltwater fish limits being reduced is they are unlikely to ever return. Lets go out with a bang lol

True, but my dads told me stories about how the limits back in the late 60's and through a large part of the '70's was like 3, maybe 4 (never mind the point system). Once the populations rebounded though they upped the limits again.

On a positive note, the low bag limits finally drove him to get into deer hunting, which has the been greatest, albeit most costly, thing that happened to us both. LOL

Been chasing waterfowl for 50+ yrs. The limits have came up & down. Too much pressure IMO to keep limits high to bring in $$$.

Heck yeah I am ready. I would gladly give up half the bag limit to watch the birds work again and not have some flatbiller with a go pro on his head skyblasting next to me.

Yall listen to this man. Hes probably shot more ducks and hunted longer than anyone here. LIke me FVR wants to see smaller bag limits in hopes the boobs will give up and go back to beer pong or something else to get their rocks off.

At 43 I remember the tail end of the point system and the 3 bird limit is what ran us out of the marsh and airboat business. It got to expensive on one wallet for 12 ducks a weekend.

Even during the 3 bird limit Teal DOMINATED east mattagorda. I remember flights of 50-60 birds decoy group after group. It didnt make sense you could only kill 3. On more than one occasion your limit was over in one shot. We moved to the KP and gravy hunts and the limit went back up. Public green was fairly easy once it got good and cold then the barneys came. Google earth and boom scouters took the actual work of finding your own spot

Went from getting to the ramp an hour before legal to 2 hours. Then I just bought a faster boat. Even after beating barney to the spot he would throw a fit cause he got beat and you didnt let him hunt with you. So of course he ran his lawnmower across the lake to blow his kazoo and skybust everything in the county

I was reading that some of those DU projects up north run some type of heating elements in the water to keep them from freezing over..

I think itís a mixture of things. I think warmer winters with not as much freezing up, shift in agriculture and other food sources for the birds and some species that traditionally migrated on hours of daylight in a day evolving into a more weather based migratory pattern. Thereís no doubt in my mind that the nesting grounds were in trouble this year with the drought they had but I think itís more of a culmination of things.

Finishing up some electrical on the boat today. Installing a bluetooth shunt and battery cut-off switch for the Lithium battery. I'll be breaking out the boat blind and redressing it pretty soon.

If they are done let me know. I'll probably drive thru the area a couple times before next week and might be able to pick them up. I was there yesterday. Glad to see locals evacuating and not trying to ride it out.

Good numbers of teal showing up on the rice prairies west of Houston. I've got blinds cleaned and prepped. Lodge work weekend complete. Water kicked off on 5 ponds that have been worked. Finally found some good ammo! Just need to keep working my dog into shape. In a weird way I like the preparation for duck season as much as the hunting. It's hot but its a good excuse to connect to the resource and enjoy the outdoors with like minded family and friends.

Pin Oak- where did you snag the ammo if you don’t mind sharing

Has anyone found ammo on the north side of houston?
