new transplant to texas

Postby Mike the Fox » Mon Jun 10, 2013 6:10 pm

just moved to south texas from maine. I love to waterfowl hunt and am learning my way around. deer hunting seems to be the big thing around here. looking for people to hunt with this fall. not looking to steal your honey hole or mooch off anybody in any way, buts its always more fun to hunt with somebody, and i'm sure things are done differently down here. I have a 18' lund Alaskan, a merrymeeting bay sculling boat, lab, etc, etc. more than willing to pay my own way and will have some of my own spots to hunt by fall. anybody willing to get together and hunt?

Welcome to Texas man, I don't have any experience on the coast but best of luck.

There's room on my boat most days, and unless you have an airboat I'm not worried about you hunting my honey holes without me...I hunt from Seadrift to Port Mansfield, NE Texas, Del Rio, Zapata, and West Texas during the split.

Uvalde is a great place to live, but like you said most of the land around there is setup for deer hunters. Ponds in your area will fill up with ducks...trick is finding and getting permission to hunt them.

Let me know if your interested in the drive...I'll be brushing blinds next month.

Shoot I am in San Antonio and would definitely be interested in tagging along or swapping a few hunts for an exotic hunt or fishing trip.

Shoot me a PM...I'm not a guide, but I work to hunt and fish. I live near Orange Grove...139 miles from Bass Pro. Lol It's hard to turn down a nice fat Axis or Blackbuck. That's the best meat you can get.
