Hunting ducks and geese can be tough, but regardless of age, some of us can’t re

Duck and goose hunters risk misery on any given day, but there are times when we know better than to go but still choose to roll the dice in an effort to scratch out one more memorable hunt.

That was the case this past Saturday, Jan. 2, when Old Man Winter tossed us some of the worst weather we’ve seen so far this season. It rained all day. The temperature was in the low 40s, and unfortunately, I had agreed to join a few buddies on a combo goose/duck hunt on a flooded field and marsh.


Saturday, Nov. 3, is one of the most anticipated days of the entire year. On that morning at first light, Texas deer and waterfowl seasons open. It’s a day when many of the estimated 500,000 deer hunters head out with rifles in hand looking to tag a big buck. It’s also the morning when thousands of waterfowl hunters will lock and load to begin what could be one of the best seasons we’ve had in many years. But the big question is this – just how good will our deer and duck hunts be?
