Early last week, I made a return trip to South Texas, and I spent a morning in a duck blind with a couple guys from Ducks Unlimited (where I used to work once upon a time), as well as with Capt. Bink Grimes, owner of Matagorda Sunrise Lodge. It was 70 degrees that morning, and the air was alive with mosquitoes that were only a bit smaller than parakeets. But the ducks were thick. We were hunting a freshwater marsh just inland from the salt, and we were simply covered up with gadwalls, teal, and spoonies. We saw a few wigeon, some mottled ducks, redheads, scaup, buffleheads, and several flights of pintails, too. You're not likely to see many greenheads from a Matagorda duck blind, but the variety of other stuff more than makes up for it. We had an amazing shoot. Enjoy the video.
