Early Teal Through Big Ducks

Early Teal Through Big Ducks

September finds us in hot wing shooting for early Teal then hitting the water mid-morning for fishing. On Dove hunts, we always fish the mornings then come back to the lodge and relax and retool for afternoon hunts. During the regular waterfowl season starting around the first of November, we typically hunt the mornings then come back to the lodge for a hearty lunch and retool for afternoon fishing adventures.

Night Activities: Night Vision Hog & Flounder Gigging

Night Activities: Night Vision Hog & Flounder Gigging

Night Vision hog hunts are a ton of fun, conducted at night over baited locations with professional blinds or spot and stalk during the September grain season. We shoot the latest generation of Night Vision using AR-15's in heavier calibers. We can add night activities like hog hunting or flounder gigging to any trip package.

* We recommend 2 shotguns for out-of-State shooters coming in for multiple days.

** We encourage our hunters not to bring 3.5” loads for our ducks. So please, leave the 3.5’s at home. You will not be happy with them here.

Air Boat Transportation

Many of our duck hunting locations are accessed by airboat depending upon water levels and difficulty of access in the back marsh. We recommend that your gear be securely stowed in waterproof bags. There can be no loose items in this boat.

Ammo & Gear Shipments

We have shotguns for rent at the lodge featuring the latest and greatest including Remington Versa Max and V-12's along with a host of over/unders. Shotgun shells are available here at the lodge.

For guests wanting to ship gear here to the lodge ahead of their trip, our shipping/receiving address is 109 W. Austin, Seadrift, Texas 77983. Please schedule a pick up for your gear as well for return to you.

Bird Processing

Bird processing fees are not included in the price of hunt packages as it is a variable that we cannot predict. These fees run approximately $2.50 for ducks and $3.00 for geese. Should you elect to not take birds home, cleaning and processing fees must still be paid. We will assist you with making donations of the meat to area charities.

If you would like to clean your own birds at no charge, feel free to do so. We will assist you with storage until your departure.
