HUNTING

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. Our duck hunting is unequalled, backed with unprecedented harvest numbers season after season.

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.

Reviews

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Just for the record. The winged biomass we ogled at the Bluecreek Property today. Trumped any flock I’ve ogled in the Southern Hemisphere on my three pilgrimages to the Land of Argentina. Absolute epitome of hard work, like-mindness, habitat acquisition, and management. All involved should be PROUD. Epic example of conservation and habitat development. Leaving things better for the ducks and our kids/grandkids. Hats off to all you boys for whatchall do!!! I’m still getting goosebumps from the amount of duck flesh on the wing!! Errrrrrrah!!
