Waterfowl

Hunt All types of waterfowl
in one location

At Run-N-Gun Adventures we have access to over 75,000 thousand acres consisting of rice fields, plowed fields, rye grass fields, wheat fields, managed duck ponds, DU projects, ranch ponds and marsh property. All hunts take place on private property leased and managed only by us in Matagorda and surrounding counties. Waterfowl hunting season typically runs early November through January and provides consistent shooting all season. Teal hunting season is usually a 16 day season during the middle of September.

We have NO OFF SEASON when it comes to waterfowl! Preparation for the next season starts a month or so after the current one ends. Discing, planting, burning, levee work, stage flooding and blind work are just a few of the things we are doing in the “off season” to ensure our clients have the best possible habitat to hunt. Habitat, water, food and roosts are the keys to attracting and keeping waterfowl on a property! We spare NO expense when it comes to these key components. Since a majority of the waterfowl we hunt are using the Texas Coastal Prairie as wintering grounds and the final stop on their migration south, resting and rotating properties is also a vital key to success. We can’t control Mother Nature, but we do make the best of what she gives us.

Teal Hunt

The 16 day teal season that takes place in September is the first chance wing shooters get to knock off the rust on live birds. The Texas Coastal Prairie is the bottleneck for teal migrating south for the winter. If you’re looking to test your marksmanship, then coming down to chase the “rice rockets” is a must.

Duck Hunt

Duck hunts will take place on flooded rice fields, flooded millet ponds, flooded moist soil management ponds, flooded fallow fields, or managed wetland projects. Our goal when we initial got into waterfowl hunting was to make a name for ourselves for running quality hunts not quantity of hunts. We hunt a variety of different ways including pit blinds, laydown blinds, Avian A-frame blinds and a few stationary blinds as well. Since we are normally hunting wintering birds, being mobile and able to set up right on the ‘X’ is key. Typical bags will include pintail, teal, gadwall, wigeon, shoveler and depending on the weather the occasional canvasback or mallard. In addition, public bay hunting is available for clients interested in coastal species targeting redheads and could also include blue bills and pintails. It’s hard to beat large groups of redheads landing in the decoys as the sun is setting on Matagorda Bay.

crane hunt

Crane hunts will normally take place in rice, plowed ground, pasture land, winter wheat fields or anywhere we find them feeding. Nicknamed the “ribeye of the sky” they make for excellent table fare! Concealment is key for harvesting these birds as they have very good eye sight. Being resourceful to the surroundings and using any cover or elevation change in the ground is a must.

goose hunt

Goose hunts will take place in rice, planted rye grass, winter wheat or plowed fields. A typical hunt will include a large sillosock spread of up to 1000+ soxs or 500+/- full body decoys. Specklebellies and snow geese are the target, but some years the lesser Canada geese will show up to provide bonus birds. It is also very common to shoot a handful of ducks while goose hunting. Intense management and letting the geese get comfortable on a property is vital to holding large concentrations of birds throughout a season. It is our philosophy to ensure quality hunting and insist on customer satisfaction.  Ecaller/conservation season has been very productive for us in recent seasons till mid-February for those interested in pulling the plugs and getting under big spins.
