The Thunderbird Difference
Since 1986, Thunderbird has provided exclusive waterfowl hunting to a private “Member Only” club with equal unbiased draw system, real controlled hunting pressure in uncrowded conditions, and some of the best duck habitat along the Texas Gulf Coast and the nation. Our duck hunting is unequalled, backed with unprecedented harvest numbers, day after day, season after season.
An encumbered encounter between waterfowl and the waterfowler – pristine habitat, cupped wings, full straps, campfire yarn, and endless memories for close to four decades…waterfowl hunting the way it is supposed to be.
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.
Reputation for quality properties under lease. Relations with landowners is good; club management has been successful in maintaining long term agreements which enhances ability to maintain quality habitat. Properties managed on par with the top end clubs with respect to habitat. The club has a record of consistently good habitat regardless of weather conditions. Pond rotation strategy best I’ve seen. Management communicates well and accepts feedback with an open mind. Members expected to contribute time and effort to maintain and improve the club. We are a “do it yourself” club. Members are avid waterfowlers and outdoorsmen. Our blind partners are also our friends. We have many long-term members and have opportunities of watching their kids grow up. We are not a “commercial club” We do have corporate members, but they are not given preference in blind selection. I know I could pay more but don’t believe I could the same value anywhere on the Texas Coast. The lodge strikes the right balance between function and operating cost. I also like the ability to use it year round. Where else can you blast and cast without getting in a boat?
