Finished the last weekend down in Pecan Island. Not a bad weekend overall, shot 5 yesterday and 14 this morning mostly teal and spoonies , but did have a few greys one mottled duck and one black belly tree duck as well. Final count was 117 on the year three less than last season. Still below average but had a great time just being out there, hopefully everyone finishes up with a few like we did.

Slow weekend down in Pecan Island, the weather didn’t cooperate. Got a late start Saturday and didn’t get to the blind till 9:30 . Still managed to knock down 4 ducks , but the plus side was a banded blue wing teal. Sunday wasn’t much better 4 again, but shot a nice canvases back, add two teal and one mottled duck , and not a bad weekend. One weekend left hopefully we can finish with a couple good hunts.

Great weekend down in Pecan Island. Shot 17 Saturday and only three today, but still better than we had been doing. Add three dozen of nice crabs right off the wharf plus 12 good size catfish on the jug lines on the way back from hunting made a great weekend. Only two weekends left hopefully it’ll continue to get better.

Hunted pecan island this weekend finally had a little success. Shot 11 Saturday and 5 this morning. Slow so far this year. Hopefully it picks up soon

December 29, 2019 at 7:09pm

Hunted Pecan Island yesterday with my son Braxton for the youth hunt. He managed to get 5 total and missed a few others. Saw plenty of ducks all morning, hopefully they’ll hang around another week so we can get a crack at them. Next weekend can’t get here fast enough.

November 03, 2019 at 12:31pm

Finished up the season with 7 this morning, not a bad hunt considering the way this season has been. Took my sister n law with me and we had a great time. I finished up with 120 on the season in 17 hunts. Well below normal , but not the worst. Heading to Texas next weekend to get on some doves. Good luck to everyone on the last weekend.

Finished up the season this morning with a great hunt. We shot only 7 but it was still good to get a few. 120 on the year not great but I’ll take it. Made 17 hunts total. Took my sister n law with me this morning and had a blast. Heading to Texas next weekend and try and get on some doves. Good luck to everyone on the last weekend.

Hunted down in pecan island this weekend and I was pleased with the results. Not great but I’ll take it , shot 9 yesterday and 8 this morning. Better than it’s been in a while.

January 06, 2019 at 2:44pm

Hunted the last two days down in the island. Yesterday was a good hunt we shot 11 which is way better than it was the last three hunts. Today was much slower with only 3 . Mostly teal this weekend with a few divers mixed in. Not complaining at all , had a great time just being there. Hopefully we can all finish up with better numbers the last few hunts.

December 30, 2018 at 3:38pm

We’ll just like everyone else it’s been slow down in Pecan Island. We shot only 7 last weekend in two hunts. But had a great time just being out there ,beautiful sunrise with the moon over the decoys both mornings. Took Proud Popps advice and got a burner for the blind , and man when it’s slow you can’t go wrong with bacon sandwich’s in the blind to pass time. Back at it next weekend. Just for comparing , last year the same weekend we shot 42 . The same type weather just no ducks down right now. To much water up north, cold weather does help but when they have all the water and food they not coming anytime soon.

December 25, 2018 at 9:02pm

Hunted down in pecan island this weekend it was very slow. Shot three on Saturday and five on Sunday. Not much wind , and a blue bird day . Last year was the same results, did good opening weekend and then it slowed down the rest of the first split. We need either a good strong south wind or another front to come thru to make them move . We have ducks in the area just nothing to make them fly. Hopefully it picks up next weekend.

November 18, 2018 at 5:50pm

Hunted pecan island this morning, great hunt shot a 4 man limit by 8:30 . Mostly teal a couple scaup and 4 sponnies. Best opening morning in 7 years

November 10, 2018 at 2:55pm

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

January 22, 2018 at 7:42pm

Pick from this morning

December 23, 2017 at 5:42pm

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.

December 23, 2017 at 5:33pm

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.

December 03, 2017 at 4:12pm

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.

January 23, 2017 at 5:24pm

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.

January 15, 2017 at 3:07pm

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.

January 08, 2017 at 4:35pm

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.

December 31, 2016 at 2:23pm

Yeah that fog was bad this morning, we shot 3 ducks early and once that fog rolled in about 7 the hunt was over. Didn’t fire a shot the next two hours. That’s hunting.

Thanks for the reply guys good luck this weekend. Looks like lots of rain but I’ll still head to the camp. Check the radar in the morning and go from there. If it’s poring down rain I’m not that mad at em . We got plenty of cold beer and lots of good football games to watch. Just being there is all it’s about.

Finished with 65 down in Pecan island. We were the opposite on the ducks thou, we did really good the beginning of the first spilt and then it slowed up quite a bit the last three weekends. We shot mostly teal, a hand full of greys, a few spoons ,and a few scalp. Made 8 hunts total. Hopefully we get a new push of ducks for the second split. On another note some guys I work with just got back from Idaho way up by Canada, and they smashed the ducks last week almost all Mallards. In three days they shot over 120 ducks. Here we or in December and the big push of ducks is still way up there, we need some artic air bad.

A comment titled: Re: True Black Duck NShore in response to a report titled: True Black Duck NShore

I would defiantly have to agree, not a mottled duck black all the way. Looking at the colors much darker and no white spectrum under the wing. We shot a limit of mottled ducks yesterday on our lease in Pecan Island, we shoot them all year long. Congrats on a rare kill .

A comment titled: Re: Any Fresh Ducks? in response to a report titled: Any Fresh Ducks?

We hunted in Pecan Island first split, the blind we hunt did real good shooting 107 ducks in 11 hunts. Everyone else we talked too had real bad first splits all around us, way to much water, and not enough cool weather. Hope the second split brings in some new birds to finish off the season.
