Start by spelling it waterfowl. Then you'll need a license, state and federal stamps, a shotgun, and some non toxic shot.

What would you like to know specifically?

Then jump down to the Migratory Bird Hunting Forum on this site and ask the guy's there for a list of good lakes and the spots they hunt on. up


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

But seriously... You should consider a couple guided duck or goose hunts. Make sure they have good references, and ask a lot of questions. A good guide will make it a learning experience for you

Welcome to the rewarding sport of waterfoul! Easiest way to ensure success is to get on the water 6 hours before sun up and leave your truck and trailer on the ramp to deter other hunters from pot licking your spot. Head out in a fast flat bottom and try and round up as many ducks as you can as they land on the water. They are easier to hit while on the water, but if you insist on wing shooting be aware they fly fast, so I emphasize a FAST boat to run them down. Don't be afraid to sling some lead either. You will probably want at least a 5 or 8 round shotgun. Better yet is to use an auto Saiga 12 gauge with a high capacity drum magazine. May want to take a pistol grip sawed off as a back up for when finishing off cripples. These critters are tough! They great thing about duck hunting is the variety. After you shoot all of your shells and filled your boat with ducks, sort thru the pile of blood and feathers and have everyone pick out their favorite 6 birds. Choose wisely, these are treasured memories and you only want to use the finest specimens for taxidermy! After the choice birds are pulled from the culls, dispose of the extra birds near your favorite catfishing hole. That's right, catfish chum, now we are multi tasking! If you don't care to catfish or lack a honey hole, you may dispose of the bird carcasses by a neighboring boat dock. Try to pick one with the most structure and nicest boats as they usually hold the biggest and meanest catfish in the lake! Cross reference this and find more information of catfishing on Texasfishingforum.com. If you can't seem to find the ducks like you had hoped, don't be discouraged, travel around boat houses and banks looking for feral white and black ducks. They usually don't fly fast nor far and make excellent practice for beginners. If no luck here, keep your eyes to the sky and surely a flock of cormorants, egrets, killdeer, and maybe scarlet ibisis will sail over. All of these are great "bonus birds" to sharpen your skill and busy your trigger finger. I could go on and on...waterfoul is an exciting pursuit and sport! Welcome to the brotherhood.
