About Your Trip

The majority of our duck hunt are conducted over playa lakes which are shallow depressions that fill by rainfall. Most are no more than 2 feet deep and can range in size from 1 to 10+ acres. Duck hunts are conducted during the morning only as we have found that afternoon hunts are not very productive. It is possible, given the right conditions to hunt ducks in dry fields. We hunt our ducks with full body floater decoys and hide in layout blinds, A-frames, and laying under goose decoys. We will decide witch method will work the best given the circumstances.

Normally you will have the chance to kill some bonus geese and cranes. Morning duck/afternoon crane hunts are a awesome way to spend a day in the Texas panhandle. Recommended shot sizes for ducks are #2-#6 shot.

If you have your own private party then feel free to bring your dog but do so at your own risk. We have seen dogs ruin a hunt and if it happens we will not be responsible.

If you are on a mixed party hunt under no circumstances may you bring your dog. This would be potentially unfair to the others on your hunt.

Duck hunting in the panhandle is complicated, yet rewarding, Our ducks roost over water and often times feed in grain fields. We hunt the ducks when they return to water witch is usually in the very early morning so be prepared! Given the right cloudy, cold conditions we are able to hunt them in the dry fields where they feed.

The most common choice is a 12 ga with 3" shells and #2 steel shot with an improved cylinder or modified choke. People have had success with 20 gauges. Full chokes and large shot are not needed. They actually hurt your chances as your pattern will be very small at the typical ranges we shoot at. Hevi -Shot and similar products are great and will really smack the birds but they are not necessary.

We are hunting wild birds and nothing is for sure. Also many times shots are missed. Many people are not used to shooting with heavy clothes on or from a reclined position. Even though geese and cranes are large birds they have a relatively small kill zone and you need to be on target to bring them down. No matter how good the hunting is there is going to be the occasional bad day. That being said we want you to be happy. If for some reason you have an unsuccessful goose hunt due to our error then you will have the option of paying half price and walking away, or paying full price and coming back for free another day. Unsuccessful hunts will be determined by the staff on a case by case basis. Often times the success of a hunt can not be judged on the bag. If a party has plenty of shooting opportunities at birds that are in range but does not have a large bag then it is not an unsuccessful hunt. On average 95% of goose hunts shoot 2 or more birds per person and 90% shoot limits. In the past 6 years we have only had 3 hunts that did not shoot a single bird.
