It’s just the way it is. Hard to find decent spots anywhere around Dfw and people keep tight lipped. You started out all wrong by naming a lake. Good luck man.

Actually that is an honest and the best answer. To add, the best days of the season to hunt that lake is not just during the first freezeout north of the red, but also combined with the nastiest, coldest, wettest, windiest weeks of the season as that is when the hunting pressure is the least.

I say given that the actual event does not meet our standards, we should follow the example of those that like to re-write things.

Meaning, in January, pour all the dam corn you want on the area you're hunting. And given shells are now hard to find. Use lead.

And no dam limits.

You're going to get the same response on any waterfowl forum on the internet - this one is probably the softest/nicest of them all.

People are super secretive because there are very limited public waterfowl hunting opportunities in N Texas - and really the state as a whole. A lake may be 50,000 acres - but in reality there are only a couple hundred acres of legal/viable/huntable/productive waterfowl habitat.

People spend hundreds of dollars + time scouting and learning lakes. People don't like to willy nilly give out information that they have personally invested in.

With that said - you're a newbie - there are no "best" months - the weather above Texas is the biggest factor. Migratory birds can be here today and gone tomorrow - which is common on public lakes in Texas because they are not managed to be great waterfowl habitat. The best day to kill ducks in Texas is any day you decide to go hunting.

Lake naming avoidance is a lot like snake avoidance training. Turn that e-collar up to 10 and drive the message home once, won't have to worry about it again.

He has been a member for 15 years, and not the first time he asked about Ray Roberts and got same type of responses. He can't possible be surprised.

So let's keep it going then. Being the only member accused of region naming, I'm not above piling on.

Region naming, that is ridiculous. Was it NTX? That is the hottest region. bolt
