New to San Angelo

Postby cutm Jack » Wed Jul 03, 2013 9:42 am

Hey guys I just found out i'll be moving to San Angelo next February and figured I would start getting things lined up for duck and fishing season now. I grew up duck hunting and starting guiding when I was in high school and continued until I joined the Air Force. I've been stationed in Idaho for the last 5 years hammering mallards in the corn and Snake river. I plan on hunting alone and I have a couple duck boats and more decoys and gear than I know what to do with.If anyone wants to get together and do some scouting or catch some crappie and catfish let me know. Im always up for meeting some more DHC guys. Im a good blind partner, I shoot well, and I always pay my way.

Anyways, I just wanted to meet some people who want to kill some ducks and catch fish.

My brother lives out in San Angelo, I haven't heard of there being good hunting out there but there are public lakes that are huntable.
Good luck and welcome to Texas

Do y'all have enough water to hunt?

I'm up there from time to time and have only seen a hand full of birds.

Only one of the guys that works for me hunts, but it's mostly deer. He said he doesn't know of to many folks that duck hunt up that way.

Not trying to discourage the OP as there is good dove hunting. And you're not to far from OH Ivie for fishing.

We have done pretty good this month. Not many mallards but enough teal to keep the barrel hot. The dove season started off slow this year but ended hot. And looking promising for DEC season. And the fishing around here is always great (rivers & Lakes). Lake Ivies looking a lot better then it has in years. Just couldn't land a monster this spring or fall. I actually live pretty close to Ivie and spend a lot of time there when Im not chasing ducks at home and across the state.

I'm new to the forum but have a little knowledge on this subjec . I live in east texas but have a deer lease in san angelo. We get good numbers of ducks on the small farm ponds. We don't hunt them until we have killed our bucks. But, I bet you can find some land owners willing to lease duck hunting rights after deer season. I don't hear much shotgun shooting in the area and I spend a lot of time in the woods during deer season. Good luck.

You will be disappointed with the public lands here in West Texas. I live in Midland and there is a lake in San Angelo that states you can hunt there, but the region you can hunt is dry all the time. Lake Abilene used to be a hidden jewel out here, but has not held water for years and is now the size of a backyard pool. I used to have to tie my boat to trees in the flooded timber out there because the good areas were 10 foot deep. Sorry to be the debbie downer.. try and find some land owners with ponds and might have some good luck that way. Windshield time has been my friend come duck season. Drive to water and better spots in north,east,and south Texas. :thumbsup:

If you're willing and able to drive I've heard good reports if the panhandle having water this year.

Panhandle was pretty good this month but has been better in previous years. Got a bunch of geese and crane.
