As much as i used to get out and around the state. I have not had the time this yr. Whos seeing good numbers? The 1st is approaching rapidly. The most birds i have seen are white wings and that was in sanger tx.
Usually they show up on my game cameras at the feeders, but have not. I own a place in haskell that has produced very well for me over the years. So whos seeing em and where?

No one has responded ------ I guess that pretty much tells the story -------- I scouted today and saw none in central Texas, between Waco and Temple.

I can see em anytime on YouTube.

Does it really matter? Your gonna be out there regardless, if you have multiple options in high traffic areas, then decide but you shouldn’t be asking the forum of you have multiple options!


See y’all around the campfire.

A front is set to push through on the 2nd. It will be a crap shoot on who has them and where. I will go scout a few places on Sunday and hope the reports are good and will hold up for two days.

See a few locals flying around but haven't seen too much of an increase in birds flying at my places in Clay and Wichita County.


Don't pass the first day of the season what you'd be happy to shoot the last day of the season.

Drove through South Breckenridge this morning around 9:30-10am. Saw lots of White Wings in groups of 10-20 birds on the highlines and fences. Drive a mile or two down the road futher and nothing. When you do find them, they're hanging in large groups.
