The teal season has started out unbelievable and I see no reason why it won’t end the exact same way. Opening weekend produced everyone going home smiling with full limits.  The teal numbers continue to hold strong with limit hunts being reach Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.  We still have dates available for the remaining 10 days of the season which goes through September 29th.  If you were pondering getting out this year for a teal hunt, the time has come.  This is a season of seasons for teal hunting.  Call or email to book.


South Zone Dove season opens tomorrow Friday, September 21st and the outlook is very promising.  The White Wing numbers continue to hold solid while the cool fronts we have been getting dispersed some Mourning Doves across the area.  We will be hunting the El Campo/Garwood area as well as South of I-0 in the Sealy area for the opener.  We still have spots available.


With Teal Season in full swing, the time is now to take advantage of a full day of wing shooting.  Come out with us in the morning for some past pace teal gunning over decoys and then enjoy an afternoon dove hunt.  This is our most popular hunt we offer because it is the best of both worlds for the discerning wing shooter.


November 3rd has been set for the opening weekend of our regular duck and goose season here in Texas.  We still have openings available throughout the season.  I know most of you had a chance to enjoy a great waterfowl season with us last year and with the reported hatch this season is looking to trump last season’s record.  Let us know if we can assist you in booking a morning of waterfowl hunting. We want everyone that comes to hunt with us to have a great outing and make a memory in the field.  The staff at Backwater Waterfowl will go above and beyond to ensure this.  Let us work hard and show you what we have to offer to gain your business.  You won’t be disappointed. For any information or pricing you may require please contact us.  Also check us out on Facebook!/pages/Backwater-Waterfowl-Retrievers/244550392248369


November Waterfowl Hunting Special

We are offering a waterfowl hunting special for all Backwater Waterfowl clients.  Any goose hunt booked between Nov. 5 and Nov. 24 or a duck/goose hunt on a week day between Nov. 5 and Dec. 9, the price will be discounted 15%.  This is a great time to get in on some early season waterfowl hunting as the birds arrive and you catch that good foggy morning. We have one spot available for a group this Sunday 11/6 (opening weekend) due to a cancellation. From what we have seen in Canada and scouting the last couple days on the Texas prairie, I can say that the biologists were spot on with their predictions.  The amount of ducks seen while in Canada and through the Dakotas was unbelievable.  The snow geese had an excellent hatch with most adult pairs having five to six juveniles following close behind.  Specklebellys also had a great hatch and it seems they beat me south as they were here before I got back.  Duck numbers on the prairie are solid with pintail, teal, gadwall and widgeon at the forefront  and with the front pushing through this Thursday they should only improve for the opener.  As always I can reiterate how we manage our properties.  We believe the more water, the better and with things dry throughout Texas the ones who have water will have the birds.  Second crop rice is starting to be cut throughout Colorado and Wharton County and we have our wells pumping water as we speak. Our properties look to be in tip top shape going into season. We are steadily booking hunts and a couple of dates have already filled up so please get your dates in so we can accommodate everyone.  We are looking forward to a great season and starting the next chapter of Backwater Waterfowl.  Take advantage of our November Waterfowl Hunting Special and let us have a chance to earn your business and I assure you that you won’t leave disappointed. Also wanted to again say thanks to all the clients who made the trip up to the Saskatchewan camp with us this fall.  It was a great year and we couldn’t have done it without you. Be sure and take a look at the website for any additional information. Thanks, Lance Stancik & The Backwater Team 979-966-7732 [email protected]
