Guys I'm not asking for locations, but has any teal been spotted in North Texas? Unfortunately I've been working a ton and haven't been able to look myself.

Yes Sir there are some out there! A lot of flooded vegetation so they can be sittin without having to get up! Jumped some good flocks Friday eve! I usually scout just to see there pattern but morning birds have 24 hours to get the (censored) out of dodge! If they are there at sunset! Good chance you will hammer them in the AM! Unless Mother Nature pushes them out! "My N texas observation only"

I've seen a handful but haven't scouted much. I'll be scouting a bunch this week so hopefully it is a little more promising

Haven't seen one yet...local woodies and that's it so far. Got rain on the lease yesterday, so we'll have to see what this week's scouting brings.

Not to mention the cooler weather moving in later this week...it'll be a whole different ball game come Friday/Saturday.

We are getting hammered with teal right now. Seen more in the last week then I did all of last season. Boys in the northern states have reported a major push out and are not seeing any and with the next big front coming through I am expecting it to be one grand slam teal season. Last year poor water conditions and no weather to move birds made it a horrible season and most of the birds came through during the month of October. Last season during the youth weekend we had a couple of large volleys of BWT come into the dekes. I am not too worried about this next front pushing everything out before the weekend. I think it is gonna make em thick as molasses. It will likely hurt the Kansas season. Unlike last year when there was over 100K birds on the Cheyenne Bottoms in Kansas most of the season.

My spots are dry as a bone. I found a few puddles and some open water near a dry creek.

Saw several (4-5) groups buzz past is Saturday afternoon while dove hunting in northern collin county. Nothing in our pond though. All were headed south and in a hurry. My buddy up in Nebraska hit two limits last weekend. I imagine they will be here in numbers this wknd. I'm headed to the coast for a teal hunt Sunday morning.

Makes perfect sense to me.

Just mallards around here so far. nidea Guess I make a blind on the muddy flat next to open water and hope for the best. My other option is tight back in the woods in a dry creek. In the bend half mile from open water had a stretch of water with a rocky bank. Maybe a blue wing will nest on those rocks or a green wing will show in the muddy flats to feed.

Found quite a few but its public land and its hard to tell who may get there first or if they'll be there Saturday morning.
