So in west Texas there are plenty of Canadian geese. We see mainly lesser and honkers. Occasionally we will see cacklers. Canadian geese stop here for the winter and won't continue on, so the bigger your spread the better. They mainly stay up towards Lamesa and northwards. We do see snow geese around the end of march, but they stay up towards Lubbock and the surrounding area within an hours drive. We also get plenty of specklebelly. Around here the big thing is Sandhill Crane. They stretch from Lubbock all the way down the Pecos river. Now with ducks you do have options. You can go 2 hours any direction and hit public duck hunting. The best is either towards Lubbock or towards the Pecos. I've seen mallards, gadwall, Rudy, pintail, buffleheads, all three teal, widgeon, shocker, wood ducks, redhead, canvasbacks, and ringnecks. There are the plays lakes up towards Lubbock or the reservoirs around Pecos and San Angelo. The best thing to do is to get with some of the guys involved in Ducks Unlimited. We have connections all over the area and cn get on land quicker. The big thing around here is deer, varmit, and predator hunting. Lubbock is hard to get a lease due to the guide services tapping them all out.
