“An encumbered encounter between waterfowl and the waterfowler – pristine habitat, cupped wings, full straps, campfire yarn, and endless memories for over three decades…waterfowl hunting the way it is supposed to be.”
Thunderbird is a very special club. It’s not stuffy, overcrowded or impersonal. THC is managed and cared for by a unique group of members who each have a burning passion for hunting and respectful conservation of the resource. Thunderbird epitomizes what the pursuit of hunting really is through an appreciation of the cold early mornings, good dog work, and camaraderie in the blind. Our club is what true Texas waterfowling is, and what it should be. We have enjoyed every second of being members and intend to do so for many years to come.
I joined THC after having the opportunity to hunt on several occasions with Steve Brien. What I was most impressed with was the quality of the hunting, the caliber of the people, and the professionalism under which the club is managed. What keeps me a member (and my son is now a full member as well) is that the club is dedicated to a first class set of properties that have great habitat to attract birds and is sensitive to the financial requirements of its members. Having the managers who will work with members to show them where the birds are and how to hunt is also a great benefit.
I have three sons. I started hunting with Thunderbird when the oldest (now 36) was 8 years old. I brought each successive son into the blind with me when he reached 8. My boys grew up at Thunderbird, and I am confident that the experience of being in verdant habitat and back at the Lodge with men from whom they could learn what it was like to be a man who responsibly enjoyed nature and fellowship significantly contributed to their being the great men they are today. Thank you, Thunderbird.
