The clubs primary focus is on duck hunting, but we also have other game to hunt including geese, dove, cranes, snipe, rails, and limited hog hunting.

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.


  • [THC] are group of people who enjoy the outdoor hunting lifestyle. A Club that is well organized yet allows all the members to participate. Best managed and organized hunting club that I have had the pleasure of being a member. Extremely fair in the way hunting spots are picked for each group. Club properties are managed in a manner that gives each hunting group optimum chance to hunt ducks.

  • Todd, I would like to send you guys a quick note about my first year experience at Thunderbird. I've been hunting in this area with other clubs for over a decade and nothing comes anywhere close your competence and understanding in delivering the complexities of consistent and great duck hunting. What you and others have built is truly remarkable. The other members and your two sons have been nothing but accommodating and willing to help us newbies at every turn. Here's to many more successful years and my sincere thanks for what you have built.

  • After reading your newsletters each week and hanging with the fellas on the front porch, it did not take me long to figure out how special the THC family is. The bonds that are created and the endless campfire stories are all a testament to the hard work put in by the Steele family along with Travis and the managers. I felt welcomed the moment I stepped foot on the property and have a mountainous appreciation for how things are run. I'll try not to get too spoiled with how my first year on the club has been because in my 22 years of duck hunting this first split has been prolific. There are always a lot of laughs in the duck blind, but this year has been special and filled with more than years passed. I credit that to you all and everyone involved in making THC the best duck destination in the South. Thank you for everything and I am looking forward to the continued duck tornadoes and whiskey campfire tails ahead.”
