I've been waterfowling in East Texas and North Texas all my life, but I'm now working in Austin. I'd like to find some places around Austin to hunt. I've checked out the public stuff from Texas Parks and Wildlife. However, I'd like to look at some other lakes and water in the area.

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS POST WITH NAMES OF LAKES.

If you've duck hunted around Austin before and would like to point me in the right direction please send me a PM. I do not want to steal your spots or anything, I just would like to know what lakes, creeks, sloughs, etc. are legal and accessible for the public.

Thank you. Like I said, PM's only.

P.S. if you're looking for a hunting partner I have a seasoned retriever and a mojo, for what it's worth.

No ducks in central Texas

Check www.TPWD.state.tx.us for legal hunting areas.

Any lake on the Colorado River is off limits.

Birddog,

Have you purchased the TPWD Annual Use Permit? You may want to get the permit as it comes with the map book. That book has all of the WMAs which list if it has water fowl hunting.

The other book you may want to purchase is the Texas Waterfowl, put out by Texas Fish & Game. Academy has them and it will get you started.

You're not in college anymore in SA or have you become a Longhorn? When did you move to Austin?
