2021 Hunting Trips Reports


4/30/21 – 5/1/21 Self-guided Hog Hunt

Burl Fulenwider and Randy Rowley had a good time of fellowship on a ranchette near Austin.  It rained moderately to heavy until 1:00 AM.  During the rain storm they saw nothing.  Afterwards, they saw five deer.  They gave up at 3:30 AM.

4/23/21 – 4/25/21 Semi-guided Hog Hunt

Christian Bana, Burl Fulenwider, and Blake and Ted Lieb had a wonderful weekend at the 2,000-acre ranch near Rocksprings, TX, managed by Ricky Ethridge.  They definitely saw some hogs and on Saturday Christian’s pinpoint shooting bagged the first pig of the day – a whopping 190 pounder.  Blake also bagged a boar – a 60 pounder.  While the group didn’t get the total amount of pigs they were hoping for, according to Burl, there were tons of animals seen, just not the right ones.  Check out the Group Photo.

3/6/21 Guided Upland Bird (Pheasant, Chukar, and Quail) Hunt

Seven hunters had a great time again with Mike Schumann at the old Dismukes/Bieberstein Ranch near Dime Box.  The total bag was 58 birds (41 quail, 11 chukars, and 6 pheasants).

1/22/21 – 1/24/21 Self-guided/chartered Coastal Blast and Cast (Duck Hunt and Bay Fishing Trip)

Eight participants had a good time at Port O’Connor.

On the first afternoon, Daryl Shipper’s crew bagged one duck and Randy Rowley’s crew was skunked.  On the second afternoon, Randy’s crew was skunked again, although Blake Lieb downed one that fell in water that was too deep (and Randy couldn’t find it later with his bay boat).

Fishing was much more successful.  Daryl Shipper’s boat caught two black drum that were approximately 39 inches long (by Isaac Lieb and Daryl), a 30-inch long bull redfish (by Blake Lieb), a black drum that was approximately 30 inches long (caught by Burl Fulenwider), and a couple of hardheads.  Randy Rowley’s boat caught a 39 3/4 inch long, 30.51 lb. bull redfish (by Jonathan Fleming) and a 37 inch long, 30.18 lb. black drum (by Blake Lieb).  No live shrimp was available.  The fish were caught on piggy perch, cut sardines, or cut crabs.

They stayed at The Inn at Clark’s.  Daryl and Randy really enjoyed their boat slips and not having to launch and recover their boats every time that they went out.

Randy Rowley led a devotional called Steering Straight.

Thanks to Daryl and Randy for bringing their boats.

1/16/21 Guided Inland Duck Hunt

Four hunters had a great time near Speaks with Rayce Jenkins and his helper, Blaine.  They hunted next to a flooded field.

The group killed 17 ducks – nine spoonbills, four bluebills (lesser scaups), three green wing teal, and a ringneck.  Randy Rowley killed two teal with one shot and then swung to the right and bagged the third one.  Blake Lieb killed a spoonbill.  There was considerable friendly disagreement on who killed the rest.  Rayce said that our group killed the most ducks so far during the second half of the season.

The group also saw several pintails, snow geese, and sandhill cranes.  One group of snow geese flew directly overhead but they were too high to shoot at.

1/9/21 Guided Inland Goose and Duck Hunt

Three hunters mostly enjoyed watching a lot of far-away geese, sandhill cranes, and ducks with the Blue Roan Outfitters near Eagle Lake on their 280-acre lake.  They set up on the levy of a rice field.  It was sunny, about 37 degrees, and there were light winds.  Very few birds came close.  Most were flying high and away.  The group killed four birds – one blue goose, two spoonbill ducks, and a pintail hen.

1/1/21 Self-guided Inland Duck Hunt

Four participants mostly enjoyed the scenery on Lake Granger in the San Gabriel Wildlife Management Area.  They saw around four flocks of ducks but they were at least 200 yards away.
