:hi: My son got stationed at Ft Bliss. He loves to hunt ducks. Is there any chance of this in or near El Paso?

No Water = No Ducks... Unfortunately, your son has been stationed in one of the most arid regions in Texas!!

I can vouch for the no water = no ducks...and I'm nowhere near El Paso. I'd have to agree though that this is pretty typical for that area. You might talk him into picking up quail hunting if he doesn't already...he's not far from some pretty great quail country in NM & AZ.

They got 10" of rain in Spoffard TX which is probably one of your closest bets at 4 or so hours away. Was there a month ago and the ponds were holding tons of water and had some teal and ruddy ducks. It was hard hunting because they would just bounce tank to tank if shooting started.

Just barely! :hi: There were about 20 wigeon feeding on the bayou that runs through my neighborhood over the weekend. That's about as much as I've seen of ducks...or water for that matter.

If he is willing to drive there are some pretty good places in New Mexico. There is a river along I-25 folks hunt, and I believe around Elephant Butte lake as well. I make the drive from San Antonio to Tucson AZ often... saw an awful lot of ducks in the fields just outside of El Paso. Best of luck.
