Been really good so far, love high water years. Met some first class n Texas a$$hats already this morning. The kind that drive the jacked up trucks that ignore you from 10 ft away as you say good morning. Not sure where they headed off to but me and the pup are patiently waiting in our spot, expecting a good hunt
Iíve shot the 2 3/4in nr 4ís of the heavy x this year, seems to work as well at least as heavy metal. Found a pellet in a mallard I shot at 15yds max today... he mustíve eaten concrete for breakfast was pretty surprised to find anything and a little confused
Hope I see something other than hooded mergansers in cass county tomorrow morning. Only shot mergansers thanksgiving weekend and saw a handful of woodies with no shot opportunities. Thatís my only north Texas experience this year.

Found these bad boyz for duck hunting at cabelas today $199.99a case instead of $329.99
Online cabelas, they still selling them 28 gauge nr 6 bismuth at $329.99, but in the store they are $199.99 I bought 3 boxes in 28 gauge, there were 6 boxes left. I think i will buy the rest tomorrow, as they are probably mistagged. Nr 6 is kind of weak for ducks, but within 35 yards, they work perfectly.
In 16 gauge, they only had 1 case left in bismuth nr 5, a perfect duckload, so i took it.
This has been by far the worst season me and my friends have ever experienced. Really only had a couple of decent hunts but they were all divers with a few red heads sprinkled in. I donít know if itís all this rain or what, but Iím hoping to change our fortunes down on the coast for my bachelor party this weekend!
