Ducks in College Station area

So I just moved off to Aggieland this year and it's hard for me to drive home 3 hours every weekend to stay on the ducks. I've heard of a few people hunting around the college station area but I have no idea where to even begin. Does anyone know or has ever duck hunted around here?

You're gonna need to get out and do some leg work to find birds and find landowners that are willing to let you hunt their place. There is not a lot of public hunting in that area. Obviously, Lake Somerville (A&M Duck Club) is public but it's REALLY low and rarely holds good numbers bc there is too much hunting pressure.

Try and find access to private land along the Brazos River or the Navasota River, those two corridors are probably your best bet and should produce some quality birds!!

Best of luck in your search!!

The WMA's along the Yegua used to be money but all those dried up. From what I was told the aluminum plant in Dime Box moved their waterlines which caused the Yegua to dry up in those areas. When I was still in school I used to hunt in Hearne, Kurten all the way up to Normangee. Make friends with people who have land close that have farm tanks. You'd be surprised at how many ducks you can shoot hunting tanks. Use small spreads and get a mojo. Call mostly using your whistles and use your mallard calls sparingly. For some reason all of the ducks I've shot hunting farm tanks are all very mature ducks and can be tough to decoy. But you'll be surprised, I even shot some geese in Kurten a few times. Don't be afraid to contact land owners, most will think you're crazy to want to try and shoot ducks on there land, but will be surprised when you do. There's a lot of friendly people in that area and as long as you're respectful, most won't have a problem. I've also heard the Navasota river bottom can be lights out so you may want to look into that

Yep, unless you want to pay for a guide around there. You could get a public hunting permit, but I'm more than willing to bet that most of those spots are dried up by now.
