Duck Hunting in Texas at the Hunt F E Hill Ranch

Duck Hunting in Texas at the Hunt F E Hill Ranch is an opportunity to fill a mixed bag of dabbling and diving ducks; teal, mallards, widgeon, wood ducks, gadwalls, spoon bills, pintail, red heads, buffalo heads, ring bills, canvas backs, and hooded mergansers. Located on a prime 4,500 acre central fly zone for duck hunting here in Texas that is a target rich environment. Hunt F E Hill Ranch is a Mecca for Trophy Duck Hunters wishing to take a bird to add to their collection and we have a great Taxidermist that specializes in bird mounts here in Fairfield, Texas. Be sure to ask us for the details.

Dotted with natural ponds we try to keep our landscape as natural as possible. You typically will hunt on the edge of our duck ponds not likely to be hunting out of blinds.  Waders are a MUST along with warm camo jackets and face masks or face paint. A fully guided Duck Hunt is provided for your convenience and success. We have really good duck guides and will rely on them to make the call on legal shooting light and when ducks are in range to shoot so we can be sure you have the highest harvest rates available for the conditions. If you choose, your dog is welcome to participate on the duck hunt only if they have a good handle by the owner, training is not recommended as it will reduce our success rates on your duck hunting trip. Morning duck hunts are usually the best and most successful though we can do some evening hunts if the situation and conditions presents itself.
