WOW! I'm reposting this after having it taken down last week due to all the phone calls we received and re-worded a few things to hopefully clarify them. I'm just now getting my voice back and I don't think Nick has every talked on the phone so much in a 4-5 day timeframe in his life. We have tried to answer or return everyone's calls/emails/text as fast as we can. Hopefully we were able to get back in touch with everyone that reached out to us wanting additional information or had questions. If you called/left a message and haven't been called back, we're truly sorry about that. We'll be combing back through all the voice mails again this week and trying to make sure we have called everyone back. With the volume at which we were receiving them, I could imagine a few getting lost in the mix.
Run-N-Gun Adventures is pleased to announce the recent buyout of Third Coast Outfitters Duck Club. Run-N-Gun Co-Owners, Daniel Kubecka and Nick Stillwell, are excited about the future and what this acquisition will mean moving forward. Over the last handful of years we have worked extremely hard to provide some of the best waterfowl habitat and hunting the coastal prairie has to offer. Consistently being able to produce great hunts doesn’t just happen by accident. Hard work, planning, preparing, discing, planting, stage flooding, protecting, resting, rotating, designated roosting areas and limiting pressure are all major aspects that help take a property from just being average and turning it into a solid producer. These are all practices that we use to help maximize every property that we have control over. The days of just flooding it up and they will come are over. We look forward to taking the same approach that has made our other properties so good over the last couple of years and applying it to all the new ones we will now be managing.
Randy will still be personally guiding goose hunts under the Third Coast name on the properties for a handful of years. So if you want to goose hunt with Randy, please still contact him to book your hunt. He will also be playing a vital roll towards our success in the coming years as we work together to develop the properties. Randy has been in the business a long time and we look forward to working with him and picking his brain in the coming years. If you have goose hunted with Randy in the past or have always wanted to, please get in touch with him ASAP. With him being the only guide now running everything for Third Coast, it won't take long for him to fill up his days.
We will be putting together a Duck Club, but it will be under a completely new set of rules/guidelines. Here are a few of the details for our Duck Club that is currently FULL, please email us if you'd like to be put on waiting list in case someone doesn't get deposit in:
-Club manager will be Nick Stillwell
-20 groups total
-6 spots per group
-3 hunts max per week (Teal season is unlimited)
-30+/- ponds per year, this is our goal and we’ll be there by 2nd year for sure
-25+ ponds per year for SURE, if for some reason we aren’t going to have 25 ponds, then we won’t have 20 groups
-We are adding 5-6 of our proven ponds into the club
-Club ponds and day hunting ponds will be totally separate and NO GUIDED hunts will take place on club ponds
-Almost all ponds have well access, so water won’t be an issue.
-10+/- ponds per year will be planted, will depend on landowners, but we’ll push to plant as many as possible
-Pit blinds will be put in where land owners allow and where ponds are in the same location every year. Should have at least 2-3 in for this season and hopefully add 2-3 more each season until we reach max.
-Blinds will be built and brushed by us on all ponds. Groups will not be expected to help in this process.
-Brand new Duck Camp built before the 2016 season right outside Bay City for club members use first.
-Ponds are located around or between the following cities: Kendleton, East Bernard, El Campo, Danevang, Blessing, Palacios, Markham & Bay City. We are always looking for more quality land in the right areas, so more will be added along the way.
$10K per group for 2015-2016 season
$11K per group for 2016-2017 season
$12K per group for 2017-2018 season
Deposit/Payments will be set up like this:
Deposit $3,000 due April 15th
2nd Payment $3,500 due by July 15th
Final Payment $3,500 due by Sept. 1st
NO teal hunting will be allowed for any group that’s not paid in full.
***As stated above, club is currently full for this coming season unless someone doesn't get us deposit on time. If you'd like to be added to the waiting list, please shoot us an email so we can put you to it.***
Our ability to run more quality goose hunts will go up this coming season with the addition of so much more property to manage. Obviously Mother Nature plays a huge role in the success throughout a season. We know that by controlling everything we can to our fullest potential that everything else usually falls into place. We’re not the oldest outfit on the coast/prairie, but you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone that works harder to make things happen than we do.
We hunt the X because we make the X!
