They musta all come down here. I'm in the Jourdanton/Pleasanton area and the birds just showed up THICK. We had decent numbers but all of a sudden I started noticing huge numbers today

Huge numbers of WW's down here in Calhoun Co. I can't wait to get a crack at them in a few weeks, that's if they are still around.

We didn't shoot anything hardly in granger other than the bull. For 2 yrs down there now it's been slow. I go to visit and catch up with friends we see once a yr there. More about the good times than the birds. When I was younger the birds were great down there. Been hunting it since I was 13. I'm 36 now. Lots of good hunts in that area

If you ever pass through Circleville on your way to Granger stop in and tell Joe hi. He's my uncle and the owner.

We hunted opening day and experienced lighter than usual number of birds in North East Texas.
Got to talking with family in Nebraska. They usually get a day or two at the start of the season before the birds start moving south. However, they're reporting back, weather has been extremely mild and the birds are still flying strong up north.
