New to Duck Hunting in Central Texas

Postby mountain_bound » Wed Oct 30, 2013 4:47 pm

My name is Jordan, I just got stationed here at Ft. Hood. I am pretty new to duck hunting (this will be my 3rd season). After reading through different posts I have found that many hunters on here are very hush hush about their hunting spots, which is very understandable, so let me start out by saying that I am not looking for people to share their secrets for the world to see. I am more just looking for advice on techniques that work for the area (Ft. Hood/Killeen). Maybe also a point in the general direction of where I can start scouting. And if anyone is willing to let someone tag along on a hunt here and there I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I look forward to the responses.

A jerk string in your decoy spread will help you out.

Check out the TPWD website for the public hunting permit/book.

Welcome to the hood, just left that place. I'd recommend getting a small boat or a yak. I never hunted on hood but had hit or miss success on the two big lakes around there. Use the corp of engineers website though.

Hey Jordan, if you ever get a 4-day or some leave time try and make a trip down here to corpus. I will put you on some nice trout/reds and shoot some ducks.
