Our location is home to a majority of the wintering redheads in this flyway, this is the end of the road in combination we will see pintails, widgeons, bluebills, buffleheads, green and blue wing teal, gadwalls, and shovelers. These birds are usually in full plumage when they arrive here and lots of clients shoot birds for the wall. Trophy birds and once and lifetime birds are not uncommon for our clients.
The day starts approximately one hour before legal shooting time for morning hunts or 2pm for afternoon hunts meeting the Captain at our private boat launch with private parking near Aransas Pass. At the time of arrival you will sign the Liability Release and Waiver Forms (save time print from website and have them ready) from there we load the airboat and head into the marsh to one of our many locations. Based on wind, types of birds present, etc. we will try to put you in the best blind possible for that day. The blinds are comfortable, dry, good seating and visibility, highly camo’d and decoyed with the finest decoys in the marsh. Since X Duck Hunts is owned by Autumn Wings, LLC (www.autumnwings.com) you will be hunting over the NICEST spreads of decoys in the Coastal Bend of Texas. The hunts last till about 10:30am or later for morning hunts and end at close of shooting for afternoon hunts. We provide both fully-guided and drop-off/self-guided ducking hunting opportunities.
Late Afternoon / Evening
TX Duck hunts has access to a tremendous hunting ranch about 45 minutes from Corpus Christi, or just over an hour from our duck hunting operation in Aransas Pass. We have exclusive rights to hunt this property and manage it accordingly. Typically starting around Sept. 1st we start offering hog hunts, our typical hunting season runs thru the end of April, we do some summer hunts but would need to be arranged well in advance. All our hunts are fair chase hunts, yes wild hogs are considered a nuisance across Texas and much of the south so hunting licenses are not required. We EXPECT our hunting guests know and practice safe gun and hunting practices. For inexperienced hunters we will provide a guide in the blind to assist in the hunt, judging when to shoot and best shots, and judging hog sizes.
All our hunts are done over feeders, either with green lights or we can provide green lights for your firearm if you do not have them, just in case the hogs appear after dark. Our hogs are unpressured and a lot of our hunting happens well before dark, yes sometimes they wait till after dark to appear at the feeders, but be prepared to see hogs in the daylight. All hunting is done from blinds positioned 50 yards from the feeders. The terrain is very thick brush adjacent to the feeders so good killing shots with appropriate rifle and bullets adds to successful recoveries. We monitor our feeders with game cameras so we try to anticipate the timing of the hogs to the feeders and which feeders are most active.
For Hog hunts depending on the time of year we meet late afternoon designated location, prefer to have your Liability Release and Waiver Form signed in advance, same release as Duck Hunting if you are doing a Quack and Squeal Hunt during the Duck Season. We do not limit the number of hogs a person can shoot within the time frame of the evening hunt. No wanton waste will occur during our hunts, this not shoot and let lay hunting experience.

TX Duck Hunts can arrange for large groups of duck hunters, we have access to many blinds, multiple airboats and guides, We usually limit ourselves to 4 pig hunters at one time to provide a quality hunt unless we hunt more than one hunter in a blind which is very possible. If your group is large for pig hunting, we have other guides than we may be able to work with in the area to suit your group needs, call Captain John to discuss 218-390-4522.
Since we have limited days of season cancellations featly effect our livelihood and we enforce a strict cancellation and booking policy. All bookings require a $100/person/per hunt deposit. If you cancel you lose your deposit, unless you re-book for another day prior to 7 days before your hunt and in the current hunting season. Cancellations in 7 days or less you will be charged for the entire hunt. No shows will also be charged for entire hunt.
Texas weather is often windy, wet and sometimes violent of which I have no control. Reasonable windy conditions and rain are normally not reasons for cancellation. We will try to consult with you in advance if weather conditions (exceptionally high winds, torrential rains, dense fog, etc.) and making the conditions unsafe in our opinion. If in our opinion the weather is unsafe to operate and a weather cancellation occurs, you have the option of re-scheduling or obtaining a refund.
If conditions such as heavy rain and or high winds make pig hunting difficult in the opinion of the guide the hunt deposit will be refunded or the hunt rescheduled. The duration of the pig hunts is solely the decision of the guide, if in the guides opinion, consulting with the client, the likelihood of a successful hunt or future continued hunting after successfully taking a hog the guide as his discretions will end the hunt. The customer at anytime can end the hunt based on their preferences.
