Are you in Jones creek yet? I messaged you a few weeks ago. I am in LJ and always looking for someone to duck hunt with around the Brazoria wildlife refuge. Never hunted Justin hurst but have heard good things.

Ever since they went to their stupid lotto system, it's go to complete crap. Sure, a true lottery system gives everyone an equal chance. But when you drive 2 plus hours, get there early enough to get a good spot in line, only to be drawn last or dang near last....every time..... nah it ain't worth it. There are about 20-25 spots that will produce good birds when the water conditions are right. If you get drawn past mid way through, your chances on having a fun and successful hunt go way down. You might get lucky and get a spot other folks have overlooked, but I've hunted all over that place for 20 years and I know where to avoid. Had some of the best hunts of my life out there, now, I won't go back. Nothing like getting stuck with a crap spot, make a death march out to the spot only to find no water or cover anywhere near, and don't even fire a shot. Some will say, "well, that's hunting" or "if you don't like it go get on a lease". Public has always been a first come system, it needs to stay that way.

I've been a couple times this year, once for teal and the other was last week. I was #15 and got picked at number 20 and the first person picked was #41 so it is really a lottery. They also have part of it closed also doesn't help your odds.

I'm glad these places are going to this style system. I would rather have it set up where you have a chance at least to get a good spot if you can't spend the day before sitting in your truck.

I'm down in Bay City, we hunt this area. I have never hunted up your direction but you aren't far off.
