I am wanting to do all the 'quintessential' Texas bird hunts from the problem is I don't have a complete list of what this would entail. I don't mind hunting the same species more than once as long as they are unique hunts. An example of this would be I think both a coastal duck hunt and flooded timber east Texas hunt would be on the list.

What Texas bird hunts would you put on the list?

Are we talking waterfowl only, or all viable game birds in Texas?

A field goose hunt would be a nice addition to your plan. River or beaver pond wood duck hunt perhaps. A playa lake hunt. Sandhill crane hunt.

Texas bird hunts,
I think of a dove hunt over a sunflower field.
Quail hunting West Texas or South Texas.
A turkey hunt in the hill country.
Coastal teal and redhead hunting.
A flooded timber hunt for mallards and wood ducks.
Field hunt for geese around Lubbock.
Maybe a crane hunt in the fields.
And maybe a pheasant hunt in the Panhandle.

bob-white, blue, gambrels' and moctezuma are Tx natives...
mouring, white-wing and white-tipped/white fronted are Tx native...
snow/blue, speckel-bellie/white front and Canada are Tx native...
then the ducks (a lot)
rails, coots and moorhens/gallinules...
also cranes, turkey and snipe...
prairie chickens and chachalacas too...
what else did I miss?

Gotta add snipe in there - the Cajun quail and one of my favorite birds to hunt.

sand hill crane
panhandle canada hunt
prairie snow goose hunt laid out in the field wearing your Dr's coat
pheasant in the panhandle
divers in the bay

I highly suggest the cranes up its a blast,a lot of times a guide will put you in a blind and call the shot when they lite, my suggestion is to find a flight path and do passing shots. its like dove hunting for a bird with a 6' wing span. Snow goose hunts on the prairie are kind of a beating, but its a must just because of the history in that area that revolved around those hunts over rags.

Gotta add teal in the rice. East (Anahuac) or West (Garwood) of Houston.
