Normally hangout on the fishing side but thought you guys could help me. I grew up on north LA chasing ducks all the time and still have all the equipment but just not as mad at them as the old days. My college freshman son is wanting to hunt bad. He and his friends were planning to hunt Lake Summerville but it is still closed. Has anyone tried to hunt the upper end of Conroe?
Any help will be appreciated.

DUDE...I'm from Louisiana and know better than to ask things like this. For one what the hell is he doing in Texas instead of going to LSU? Your boy is lost and needs help. Second, lake hunting is a waste of time if it isn't Catahoula. Third, it's spelled Somerville...but I guess that explains why he's in school here.

Lightnin,
There's an unwritten rule to not give out specific information about locations. I would ask if someone could pm you on conroe, that way it's not there for everyone else to see. Someone outside the forum googles duck hunting lake conroe and pretty soon you have 50 duck hunters competing for that spot.

Good luck

Just realized I forgot to give constructive advice. Tell him to get out and scout public opportunity on the coast. If he's not a chip off the old block he may find birds...or he may just ask other people on the internet to do all the work.

I've hunted Conroe a handful of times since I moved here a few years ago. Honestly it is not even worth it unless you wanna go set up under a little wood duck flyway and pass shoot a few. Most I've ever killed out there is 2 and last year I went the whole year without firing a shot. It was bad enough for me to say F this and go drop a couple bucks on a lease down near the coast. As said above, it would be worth it to go explore the coast and see what you can find. Waking up at 230-3 and driving 2-2.5 hours sounds brutal, but it will be worth it.

I don't even use duck decoys. Just mannequins in bikinis with Mrs. Bairds bags in their hands.

Thank you noname. He is actually going to a junior college in San Antonio. He is taking two friends with him and spending the weekend at A&M with a HS friend. He hopes to be an Aggie next year. Yes I hoped he would be a Tiger but economics being what they are instate is just cheaper. I grew up hunting ducks. I know better than to ask about a specific spot, I was asking about an area of the lake. I just hate to see him wake up at 3:30 and drive to Conroe and end up in a ski area. Hope you all limit out opening morning.

Ah yeah he might be out of luck then other than Conroe. I was at A&M for a year and a half for my masters and searched up and down and there is just not much public hunting opportunity around there. Ill shoot you a PM with some spots for him to check out.
