The lodge plays hosts to many duck hunters, in and out of state, who are looking for that lifetime trophy redhead, pintail, and blue wing teal.

Texas Duck Hunting

Everything’s bigger in Texas, and that includes our love of the outdoors and all that this massive state has to offer the outdoorsman. Considered on the list of things to do in the great Texas outdoors might be left only to one’s imagination, as almost anything you can think of may make the list. But for those of us fortunate enough to have spent most of our life enjoying all of that which the coastal environs of Texas have to offer, the only thing better than this state’s coastal fishing is its ability to provide outdoor enthusiasts with some of the absolute best duck hunting one can find.

Whether it’s Widgeon, Teal, Canvasback, Pintail or Redheads that you’re after, the coastal plains of Texas provide you with ample opportunity at bagging a wide variety of species at any one time. You might experience as many as ten different kinds of ducks in your sights on any one given day, with even more species on a different day. It’s this level of variety that makes the state of Texas a very unique venue for avid local, national, and even international waterfowl hunters each and every year.

Waterfowl are set apart from all other birds by their aquatic habitat needs, and the hundreds upon thousands of square miles of Texas coastal marsh and saltwater grasslands provide huge numbers of migratory waterfowl a safe haven for wintertime nesting and feeding. The ducks like feeding on flooded wetlands, both natural and agricultural, so the vastness of Texas coastal rice, soybean, corn, and milo fields, along with a seemingly endless array of available aquatic plants give Texas duck hunters an enormous advantage over the opposition. Next time you’re interested in what may just be some of the nation’s best duck hunting, give the coastal region of Texas a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

The lodge has been recognized here in Texas and Nationally as one of the top fishing and duck hunting destinations. If you would like to read more about us, check out these featured articles.
