I am in Austin. What do you need to know. There is SOME public hunting in the area, but if you have a boat you are going to be able to hunt a lot more places. As far as the pintail dekes are concerned they are going to be great on the coast. There are a LOT of pintails on the coast, for around here (Austin) get yourself a dozen hotbuy mallards and get after it. Perhaps get a half dozen GHG gadwalls or something too. Around here small spreads do well.

As the season gets near, things will get more fired up around here and a lot of information should be bouncing around.

hey,
Finally some Austinites on this site. If you live in or near Austin, the best in the area would be Granger Lake just past Georgetown. Public but somewhat good, could be better if those farmers in the surrounding property would try growing crops instead of grazing it to near death. Lots of woodies, gadwalls, and bluebills. Not a lot of geese, like I said there's no food for em...you might get a few come in over your spread, but don't count on it. I carry a doz. mallards, and a half to a full doz bluebills. Keep the pintails for the coast.
