Pecan island final count 178 on the year great season. Way better than expected considering the first split was a bust. Shot a lot of good ducks the last few weekends, lots of teal and good numbers of big ducks. Even had a cinnamon teal killed on the property we hunt on
Pick from this morning
Finally shot some ducks this weekend 42 in two hunts. Limited out both days, been slow all year. We only shot 65 the whole first split and finally had a great weekend. Hopefully it gets better from here.
Slow first split shot 62 total. Way below average on the year. Lots of scalp and teal. Hope the second split is better, everyone on this end doing the same if not worse. The number of ducks down in Pecan Island is way down from the last few years.
Finished up with a great weekend down in Pecan Island, just not to good with the ducks. I had a blast on Saturday took my wife and 10 year old daughter on a quick late morning hunt. Arrived at the blind at about 8:45 ,shot a beautiful male blue wing teal and one spoonie in about a half hour . That was all I needed to make my little girl happy, to get to see the dog work and take a few shots at the decoys with her BB gun. The blue wing is going on the wall full color and no broken wings. Total count on the year was 142 birds, down from last year's count of 176. Shot mostly teal but did manage 9 mallards on the season as well, mix in a few greys and of course about 20 smilies and it wasn't to bad of a year. November can't get here fast enough.
Hunted the PI this weekend did OK on Saturday, we shot 10 on the morning mostly teal but not a bad hunt. It started off real slow but picked up once the fog lifted. On Sunday shot 6, same thing 5 teal and 1 ring neck. One weekend left hopefully the last one is good.
Hunted pecan island this weekend, man what a let down on Saturday, shot only two teal all morning. All that freezing weather and no birds. Everything was frozen from the decoys to the dog, you would think all that wind and cold air would have been the best hunt of the season. Well I guess that's why they call it hunting and not killing. On Sunday it was much better, two of us killed 7, the best part was a pair of mallards, witch one of them a big green head will be going on the wall. It was a beautiful duck with no damage at all. It will be my friends first mount ever, he was all pumped up. Only two weekends left, hope it goes good till the end.
Hunted pecan island this weekend shot 9 Saturday and 7 Sunday. It was a little slower than usual but still not to bad. Most people we talked to didn't do to good , about 3 to 4 birds per blind was the average per blind. Got 4 dozen of nice crabs off the wharf as well, not a bad weekend. Happy new year to all.
Hunted pecan island this weekend ,did pretty good killed 25 in two days. On Saturday shot only 7, but my son shot his first grey duck .Had fun just watching that ,he's shot plenty of ducks in the past, but that was his first big duck he' s ever shot. Sunday was much better killed 18 total , mostly teal with a couple of big ducks. Not a bad start for the second split, hopefully it'll keep up the rest of the season.
Hunted pecan island this weekend shot 17 total. Only three on Friday, but limmeted out on Saturday. Sunday was even slower, only shot two. Still not a bad weekend, had two greenheads,and a couple of greys, one wodie, three spoonies, the rest teal. Hopefully the next front brings in some new birds.

So for this year we've done really good down in pecan island. Killed 95 ducks in 6 hunts with about a 3 person average. Mostly teal, but the last couple of hunts we did really good on the big ducks. This past weekend , shot 10 mallards, 2 pintail, and a few greys mixed in. Had 2 good hunts both days taking limets with no problem.
Finally put together two good weekends in a row down in Pecan Island. Didnt limit out but had some good hunts .Saturday five hunters 21 ducks 3 geese, mostley teal but had a couple greys and even some red heads witch we dont normally shoot. Sunday was a lot slower but still managed 7 ducks. Final count 16 hunts 135 ducks 3 geese, with about a three person per hunt average, way down from normal. Not a bad year but not the best eather. Maybe next season things can get back to normal, with out all this high water.
A co worker of mine just returned on a trip from Alaska and caught quite a bit of Halibut. He had about 30 lbs of filet sent back home on Fed- Ex. I am trying to get a few diferent recipes for him to try. Any suggestions ?
