“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.”
Good times and glad he got to enjoy yet another great hunt at THC.
To my duck hunting family, Thank you for all the life lessons, support, kind words, and fun memories. I would not be the person I am today if it was not for this club. College graduation will soon be checked off the list. I hope you are ready for another Hayes to be around the club more often! See you next season.
Texas Gulf Coast waterfowl clubs all have their own culture, and it is important to find the one that best suits your needs. Thunderbird (THC), with acreage extending from Tres Palacios Bay to near Pierce Ranch, is a duck hunter's club - meaning it’s your hunt, not a guide's hunt, in our carefully crafted habitat. Ours is a culture for the outdoorsman or woman who prefers the quiet of the morning as their party makes their way to the blind, and prefers to avoid the herding and long lines at a gate - the very thing we are usually trying to get away from! Its an equitable club; our members draw for blinds, there is no favoritism, and because we do not feature "day hunts," our regular members do not follow in the wake of an over-hunted pond or field. Our dollars are spent on habitat, and less on ambience - this is one of the reasons our 100% of our members shot limits of ducks on 3 out of every 4 trips for the past 25 years.
