Texas Gulf guides/hunts

Postby wantingapintail » Tue Dec 04, 2012 11:17 am

A few friends and I are looking to head south to Texas next year for pintails and redheads. We have been looking for a guide that provides local knowledge, blinds, and transportation. Everything else we would like to do on our own. Has anybody went down there and can recommend a duck hunting guide? Thanks for any help.

I go over there every year and do a self guided hunt. The first time I went I went with Bay flatts lodge but I don't think they will just drop you off. Redheads down there are just about as dumb as it gets. I have literally killed them sitting on an oyster island with no cover out of a lawn chair!! This is not the normal way I hunt by any means but certain situations led me to do that on that day! The bad thing is that you will see thousands and thousands and can only kill two!! Oh well, I still go back every year anyway.

I went one year with bay flatts too they were pretty good and the prices weren't bad either.

Me, my dad, and 2 little brothers went and we all had limits everyday. I would go back, you can call them and they will let you know if the ducks/geese are there. They were friendly and pretty good. I go on 2-5 hunts a year to different places I've never hunted and use guide services on the hunts. They were some of the better ones I've been with.

Bay flatts was alright but to be honest I did better on my own. In my opinion they cater more to the guest that stay with them in their fancy lodge so they can get more out of ya. I stayed elsewhere and had my boat with me to do it myself but wanted a sure chance at a pintail so I went out with them and did get my pintail. By the way they didn't know I had my boat! Never a good idea to let a guide know you have a boat! After the hunts with them, I struck out on my own and actually scouted (in a totally different bay then where we hunted) and killed limits every day. If it is redheads you are looking for a guide that has never been duck hunting should be able to put you on them on the Texas coast.

Try these guys. I wrote this story on them last year and went with them on opening weekend this year. They will air boat you to a blind and can supply a guide if you want one. http://blog.mysanantonio.com/racksnreels/2011/11/21/the-blind-side/
