I am in South Texas at the Bay Flats Lodge for a few days hosting the Blue Delta Jeans Coastal Cup. It is a high end duck hunting tournament & these fellas are going all out!
We were welcomed with a steak dinner last night. I got assigned to one of the duck hunting groups & was ready to roll bright & early at 4:15am this morning!
We took an air boat for a 30 minute ride to get to our duck blind. And I got my face painted up & caught a gorgeous sunrise.
The ducks were flying early in the morning & the team I was with is currently in 1st place.
They shot an extremely rare banded pintail duck. Everyone was fired up as apparently this is like a 1 out of 10,000 type event.
Sydnie Wells of Barstool Outdoors even chimed in on Twitter!
The ducks slowed down after a couple hours & we ended up staying out in the blind til about 10am. While I did not shoot any ducks, I had such a good time.
I definitely could see myself picking up duck hunting as a hobby in the future. Maybe I need to get Sydnie Wells on the horn to teach me a thing or two.
I already am looking forward to getting back out there tomorrow morning!
