Dear Friend,

I hope you are doing well and getting through the recent heat wave we've had. Monday the 23rd we hit 106 at the bird farm and have been breaking the 100's most days for the last several weeks. The good news is so far birds are doing well and we are busy getting ready to start another hunting season. 
Here at the lodge we are busy with maintenance projects and in the next couple of weeks will start mowing paths and also hope to do some more spraying to keep the roses and brush under control. 
At the bird farm we are preparing for our last order of Chukar and Pheasant chicks. So far we have been having good luck raising birds this year and hope that continues. All total we have gotten in a little over 37,500 pheasant, Chukar and Quail chicks so far with another 25,000 to 30,000 still to come in over the next two months. 
We are also busy working on duck ponds and blinds and also getting ready to start doing some mowing and plowing to some of the dove fields. 

Dove Season
Once again we will have the Early White wing season in El Campo. This is the first two weekends in September. Saturday and Sunday only with shooting time starting at noon. We will be limiting this to a maximum of 25 hunters per day. We did attempt to get some sunflowers going but did not get much of stand due to lack of rain after planting. We do have a good stand of goat weed growing and are seeing lots of doves on the property. Hopefully we can avoid another hurricane the week before and not have a repeat of last year. Regular South Zone Season opens up on the 14th. We will be hunting both El Campo and also the 12,000 acres between Eagle Lake and Sealy. With the season opening a week earlier than usual and the number of doves we are seeing I am very optimistic. Bookings will be taken on a first come first serve basis, so if interested give us a call asap. 
Cost for both opening weekends is $120.00 per hunter. After opening weekend it will be $100.00 per hunter. 

Early Teal Season 
Early Teal will open on September 15th and run through the 30th. As stated above we are busy doing pond and blind work. Opening day is booked with the second day only having room for two more groups so do not wait too long to make your reservation. 
We will be at Reliant Center for the Hunters Extravaganza August 3rd thru 5th so please stop by the booth and say hello. 

I look forward to another great season of hunting and look forward to seeing you soon.
