I'm new to hunting Central Texas and freshwater in general. Not looking to ask for advice on any spots or honey holes as I've spent the last month looking and just now finally found birds.
I'm from the coast and used to hunting redheads and pintails on open water, but apparently hunting birds around here requires something different as I had lots of birds eye my setup but wouldn't commit today.
What species do ya'll use? How many decoy's do you use. How do you handle setting up your shooting position and the decoy's when wind is less than the optimal direction?
Also, if anyone is looking for a hunting partner or just to grab a few beers [album][album][/album][/album]with a fellow hunter let me know. I have my own decoys/ equipment and run a momarsh with a mini longtail (its a little tight for two people but can really get you into the backwaters).
