New to fort hood/Harker heights area from Florida. Have done some dove hunting before, and bow hunted a couple times, but have never duck hunted. Did way more fishing in Florida.

Is there anyone in this area guides? Or anyone on here who can help me get started? Would love someone to go over what I need, and just answer the general questions for a first timer. Not looking to steal spots! I know just like fishing we all put tons of hours and time into finding our spots. I’ve been the guy to help people get into saltwater fly fishing in Florida many times, and have saved buddies tons of money and frustration getting started. Was hoping for something similar for this.

I am also on a waitlist for a golden retriever. He’s part of the reason I want to get into duck hunting. My old lab was a natural on the dove field.

You sure you're monetarily ready to get into duck hunting?! Technically all you need is a gun and shells, but before you know it you're 3k in wanting a boat, more decoys and calls, etc. Good luck, it's addicting. I'm no help to you in that area. First though, I'd get a subscription to onX hunt app, find a local wma or corps lake, and then use that app to scout those areas online. Then go check that area out in person.

I live in Harker heights which is pretty close to stillhouse and Belton. What do you guys recommend buying at first? Are there any guides in this area? Would love to do a hunt just to see what it’s about and figure out what I need before buying it all.
