Teal, mallards, gadwall, ringnecks, widgeon, coots, pintails, etc. Basically anything that flies in the central flyway.
You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas.

Google maps and Texas Parks and Wildlife can point you in the right direction... Lake of the Pines is out that way, anyone know if it is huntable... Also there are plenty of swamps that are corp of Engineers land south east of you about 2 hours. Good luck.

Yep, and the further south towards Beaumont you go generally more huntable water and more hunters.

Havent been out in the areas in a while but from what I hear the water level is down a LOT in most places with the drought. Best bet is get a map find water and scout it... find the X where the birds are and you will be good.

Waters down alot this way, I'm 50 miles north of Tyler, I don't want to post em on hear but there are a couple good lakes within an hour of you. My seasons numbers are behind last years and that's been the general consensus right around here, you can PM if you want I'll try to help you where I can.
