If Texas Geese are what you are after, we’ve got access to thousands of acres on the coastal prairies wintering Snow, Blue, Ross, Specklebelly, and Canadian geese. Our guides are full-time local goose hunting professionals that take pride in every hunt.
Unlike goose hunting in other areas of Texas, our hunts are a little different. For one, seldom are our shooters laying on the ground. We also use smaller numbers of high quality decoys and don't favor windsocks or large rag spreads. Our birds don't like them, and neither do we. Come try something different, gunning coastal Texas geese.
High quality sets of full bodies are a signature of goose hunting in this area. Experience the calling mastery of our guides as we work them in close. Our hunts are conducted "inland" and followed with an afternoon on the bay duck hunting for Pintail, Wigeon, Redheads, Gadwall, Teal and other Central Flyway favorites! Welcome to "collector's paradise"! We also offer Sandhill Crane hunting as an excellent morning option for inland hunters.
Our duck season starts with the First Split on November 7th and runs through November 29th. The Second Split starts December 12th and runs through January 29th. Sandhill Crane opens 12/19/20 and runs through January 24th.
Cast & Blast trips including Fly Fishing, Goose/Duck combinations, Sandhill Crane and much more. Come see us!

Bird processing fees are not included in the price of hunt packages as it is a variable that we cannot predict. These fees run approximately $2.50 for ducks and $3.00 for geese. Should you elect to not take birds home, cleaning and processing fees must still be paid. We will assist you with making donations of the meat to area charities.
If you would like to clean your own birds at no charge, feel free to do so. We will assist you with storage until your departure.
We have shotguns for rent at the lodge featuring the latest and greatest including Remington Versa Max and V-12's along with a host of over/unders. Shotgun shells are available here at the lodge.
For guests wanting to ship gear here to the lodge ahead of their trip, our shipping/receiving address is 109 W. Austin, Seadrift, Texas 77983. Please schedule a pick up for your gear as well for return to you.
Many of our duck hunting locations are accessed by airboat depending upon water levels and difficulty of access in the back marsh. We recommend that your gear be securely stowed in waterproof bags. There can be no loose items in this boat.
