Crane or Goose Hunting
$150 per night, per person (includes 3 meals)
begins the 16-day early teal season. Regular duck and goose season usually begins
the first weekend in November (seasons are finalized in August annually). Our
prairie hunts are conducted in Wharton County, with pintails, gadwalls, teal,
wigeons, shovelers and a few mallards comprising the bag. The region is home to
the largest concentration of wintering snow geese and specklebellies in Texas.
We like to shoot decoying birds and frown on pass-shooting, unless it is an absolute
last resort. Morning or afternoon duck hunts on nearby Matagorda Bay are available
for species like redheads, buffleheads, pintails, scaup and wigeons. From mid-December
to mid-January, sandhill cranes are fair game. These large gray birds are excellent
tablefare, and even better sport. An 8-12 lbs. bird is a sight to see at 30 yards.
Lodging is offered on the premises, or motels are available nearby in Wharton
or El Campo. We can also package your birds at our bird processing facility.
