After living in north Texas for the past 8 years and moving back home I can tell you a few things, get ready for some "Minnesota Muck" and hunting out of a boat most of the time. Also get ready to shoot birds that have not come close to reaching full plumage. TON of public land up here, as someone else said....scout....scout....scout....
Let me know when you head back to TX. There are two lake I hunted every week with only local guys hunting on up by the Red River.
Very small lakes that are over looked by all the DFW city hunters. (which is hard to find)
