Who’s killing ducks?! - 11/17/21 02:37 PM

It’s been a good season so far between the coastal opener on my lease and a couple solo hunts for the NTX opener. Show us your kill pics!

Nice storm wigeon!! Hope that is getting mounted. Also, I've seen a couple other surf scoters taken this year in that area of the coast.

Saw a scoter get killed in the back of Baffin in the early 2000s. I've seen more odd species get killed when hunting open bays. I killed a few Goldeneye a couple of years ago in Matagorda bay.

Been hearing more and more people who have knocked down Scoters throughout the coastal bend over the years, more common than I had first thought. This was actually in San Patricio, over Rockport way. Still waiting to check that golden eye box.

We throttled them on the opener. Now my section of the coast is a ghost town. I am going to spend this upcoming weekend at the coast and not even taking a shotgun. I am trading it for an air hammer. Got to make hay while the sun is shining.

Re: Who’s killing ducks?! - 11/19/21 12:03 AM

We've had a couple of good ones.
Had a good solo hunt, it's just nice getting out there, it's not all about making piles, even though piles can be fun.

We did get the first green head of the year. Still lots of wood ducks. Have not seen a single teal yet which is odd.
Hunted Sunday in a thong and flip flops… roflmao Saw a few groups but none wanted to play the game.

Re: Who’s killing ducks?! - 11/22/21 05:40 PM

Haven't got to go as much as I'd like but killing and seeing nice numbers when I have gone.

Going to get in at least one hunt this week. Should be good..

Re: Who’s killing ducks?! - 11/23/21 12:50 AM

I’m not for sure. Spent 3 days in Mitchell County at our lease and nothing. My lease has a feeder creek that winds up flowing into Lake Colorado City.
This dried creek bed has been dry for 3 years until this year. It’s waist deep across from side to side.
I’m thinking that the ducks are not used to flying in there because of no water the last 2 1/2 years or the ducks are not down here yet.
What are y’all’s thoughts?

Re: Who’s killing ducks?! - 11/23/21 03:48 AM

Slow morning today for me. Me and a buddy killed 4 woodies. Not many big ducks flying. Did seed see a few gadwall on a tank on the way out. Don’t think many big ducks have gotten here yet.

This was Navarro county. Private land.

Had 3 ringnecks come in and a couple of big ducks passing by Saturday morning west of Bonham - nothing whatsoever flying in our area. Heard two groups of 2 shots all morning long. Still need some hard freezes up north I think.

Great solo hunt this morning. Decided to go hunt on public at the coast and the gaddies worked like magic.

We had a real good hunt yesterday. Friday was pretty slow but did see and manage to kill a few birds. My goal was to have boys kill ducks this break. Hard task when phones are always in their hands! roflmao

Killed a four man of mallards and a couple of pintails on a popular north Texas lake on Thursday afternoon when that strong north wind blew through.

Mixed bag for sure

Re: Who’s killing ducks?! - 11/29/21 03:26 PM

For the first time that I can recall, I didn't hunt any public during the first split and only four times in all. For lots of reasons things have been way busier than normal, but that will all slow down in the next couple weeks.

We have one small pond at our deer lease that is holding a ton of birds for some reason. It's usually pretty good, but really loaded up so far. Our bigger pond, which is usually really good, isn't holding anything. Typical 2021 weirdness.

I agree 100%. Best drinking and joke telling in years. If the rest of the season is like the last few days its going to be a GREAT year!
