Hunting in the Lower Laguna Madre can be a fun and exciting experience as you hunt and harvest a variety of water fowl such as; Redheads, Pintails, Blue Bills, Widgeon, Buffle Heads, Mottled Ducks, Ring Necks, Gadwalls, and both Blue Wing and Green Wing Teal.
During your duck hunt with Mike, you'll hunt the Lower Laguna Madre Area from the Rattlesnake Bay system to the North, to the South Bay system to the south.
A typical day of duck hunting with Mike Knox is about 4 hours long, and hunts are primarily from the shoreline and natural cover where you'll hunt diver type ducks. Decoy spreads consist of 50 to 75 decoys, including motion type decoys and standard type decoys. Duck hunting blinds are available; however some can only be accessed during high tides. If you prefer layout type hunting, Mike can also accommodate with a sneak box.
Mike also provides his own retrievers, although you may bring your own dog if preferred. Simply notify Mike when you make your reservation so he may accommodate for your dog.
