Did I ever post on this thread? Too lazy to look, but don't think so. My name is Jack Giesecke, from Port Lavaca. I'm semi retired and do small engine work for chump change so I can play until such time as I might get some of my social security money back some day, at least. I hunt a lot at the Guadelupe Delta WMA and various legal spots around the bays here and up in the marshes and tide lands. There are some legal areas at the head of Lavaca Bay and Powder Horn lake, but I usually don't like messing with the boat and Guadelupe Delta is better usually, anyway.
I grew up hunting around Jones Creek (home town)/Freeport (exporters 1971) in the marshes. There's a WMA now where I used to have permission to hunt, Peach Point, but it's usually crowded with the Houston hunters, like going to a Texan's game or something trying to sign in there, in a traffic jam at the gate and no parking left.
I hunted there once since the state bought it, but I prefer the hunting down here, much better. I've hunted from San Louis pass south to the land cut past Baffin Bay and I can tell ya, the further south you get, the better it is.
Been duck and goose hunting since the age of 14, that'd be 40 years, and still love a sun up in the marsh. Never get tired of the smell of marsh mud.
Oh, yeah, left out that I have done a little inland stuff. While living in College Station (class of 75, Wildlife and Fisheries Science) I took a few mallards off Somerville lake and a few wood ducks off the Navasota river. I prefer marsh hunting, but it was fun, too.
