“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 Hunting Club offers the serious waterfowl hunter, whether a highly experienced hunter or someone just developing a passion for waterfowl hunting, the opportunity to hunt waterfowl along the Texas Gulf Coast under near perfect conditions. That does not mean you will be guaranteed limits of ducks or geese on every hunt but it does mean you will have the opportunity on every hunt to hunt with hunters who love the outdoors and waterfowl hunting, to participate in the camaraderie associated with waterfowl hunting, of watching early on a “ducky” type of morning a flock of newly arriving ducks responding to your call and decoying into your decoys, of watching the lab sitting beside you shiver with excitement as he keeps a intense lookout for the next flock of ducks and most importantly of knowing that every effort has been made to insure habitat conditions are the best they can be considering variations in weather from season to season so that every hunter has a positive hunting experience.
The management team at Thunderbird Hunting Club has a passion for the complete outdoor experience. They take that passion, combine it with decades of waterfowl experience, and year round work to provide some of the best hunting opportunities on the Gulf Coast. There is an understanding that if the proper ingredients are combined on the front end, great waterfowl hunts become the rule, not an exception. They have put a system in place that provides the best possible chance for all members to participate in both the work, and rewards of the outdoors. The system, experience, and the passion for the overall waterfowl experience, makes hunting at Thunderbird one of the best values on the Gulf Coast. That’s why I will continue to come back.
I have been a part of Thunderbird Hunting Club for twenty four years now. My dad, Marshall Hayes, found out about the club and was all for joining. Little did he know, joining that first year would start a tradition in our family that we would carry on for decades to come. When my daughter, Jenna, became of age, we brought her down to hunt with us. I loved to have my dad and daughter next to me in the duck blinds. We had so many great times and memories that will not be forgotten. It has always been a place run by fairness and equality. I never worried about bringing Jenna because I knew that she would learn those values. The quality of the hunts are something that is hard to find. The management has done such a good job with finding the properties and building relationships with the owners so that we can continue to have our consistent limits. We are privileged to have been accepted to join the Thunderbird family and look forward to keeping all the great traditions.
