Hey!
I was just looking at a site called birdhuntingintexas.com and they spoke of a parakeet hunt. I would be interested in a guided hunt like this if anyone could hook me up. They even had a picture on this site. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hunted parakeet several times down around Waco. We didn't use dogs, but had a guide with a parrot that would call them in. Once the parrot had them coming in they would settle into a pile of bird seed the guide put out, at that point he had three Siamese cats that would clean the pile off. Not much meat on the little buggers and a pain to clean but tied fly's with some of the more colorful feathers. All in all a nice hunt. I've lost track when does the season open.

I've seen parakeet flocks and green parrots nesting in Temple.....Lots of flocks in SA, Houston, and Austin from what I've heard.

We used to see them frequently in the Valley when my family had an orchard down there.

Pretty sure Tweety Bird was supposed to be a parakeet

Sit on the San Leon beach and watch the parrot flocks fly.

No, this is not a joke even though I can understand why you might think that it is. They did propose a hunting season in San Leon but they are an invasive species so no season is necessary. I'm still interested so if anyone knows of anyone that could put me on to them, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
