I haven't seen birds like this on opening weekend in a few years. Its going to be a great year. Anyone else seeing large numbers of birds in North Texas?

I am getting excited for the opener, this will be my first duck hunting trip down here in Texas.
I have only been one other time with my brother up in the Puget Sound in Seattle, fortunately I wont have to deal with sub-zero temps

A little west and south of what most people consider "North Texas" but we are seeing very large numbers. Unless something changes between now and Saturday it should be amazing!

Large numbers of Pins, Wigeon, Gadwall and Teal.

hurry up and send them south! We've got very few birds in my neck of the woods.

I've burned a lot of gas scouting and haven't seen birds in what I would call big numbers yet.

Got out for the south opener last weekend and tagged a couple limits of reds on the coast. Headed to a res that shall remain unnamed this weekend to get some puddlers. Only hunted the coast last year, so I can't wait to get in on some puddler action!!

Seen lots and lots of ducks spread over lots and lots of water. It's going to be a season of, "I shoulda set up 200yds over there"

Not a lot where I've been looking, but that doesn't mean I won't give it a shot.

Last week after the rains things changed for me quite a bit. Where I was seeing ducks they were few and far between. I've got a general idea about where I'll be hunting Saturday, but not as confident as I was 2-3 weeks ago!

Went and looked at my best places in Central Texas and literally did not see one duck today. I'm hopeful the next few cold fronts will bring us some of these ducks you guys are seeing in North Texas. Lots of good water in some really good locations, so I am hopeful for later on in the season.

Birds are on there way, I saw more birds than yesterday coming through with this front last night. Should be a good year for Texas. Good luck everyone, post your pics tomorrow.

Ramball had to miss this hunt but shot limits again on Sunday and then again yesterday. It pays to scout

Was this in Ellis County? We have 8000 acres from Palmer,to Corsicana, to Dawson. I have seen this consistently on all of our properties. Maybe our neck of the woods is just the place to be!
