Ducks and geese are very popular birds for many Texas waterfowl hunters. You can find ducks and geese in Texas almost any place that has a little water and a little green or grain to eat. We are very fortunate to be at the Southern end of most of the waterfowl migration patterns so that the birds tend to stay with us during the season rather than just migrate through. Texas waterfowl hunting tends to be very good through out the entire season.
Today, ducks.org, just published an update from the US Fish and Wildilfe Service reporting that the numbers of ducks are holding steady across North America.
If you’ve ever hunted ducks, you know that bag limits are based on these USFWS surveys so it looks like this year will be mother good one.
