n BIRD HUNTING REPORT
AUSTIN -- The following information was reported by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. TPWD provides a weekly report through February. For information, visit www.tpwd.state.tx.us.
South Zone: Rio Grande Valley hunters have shot limits of whitewings in sunflowers. El Campo, Bay City, and Port Lavaca have seen steady flights and an influx of birds with the cool front. Palacios has held birds around mesquite beans and milo fields. Hondo, Del Rio, and Sabinal have been good in the afternoon for both whitewings and mourners. Devine and Big Foot continue to produce steady shoots. The forthcoming full moon should send more migrants. The season runs through Oct. 30. Prospects are fair to good.
Central Zone: White-wings continue to find corn and milo fields in and around San Antonio, though hunter participation is down since the opener. New birds showed last week around Katy, Brookshire, and Columbus. Beaumont and Dayton fields saw an influx of mourning doves with the cooler temps. Hankamer is holding more mourning doves than whitewings. Many hunters along the coast have said they haven’t seen whitewing numbers like seasons past. Stephenville, Brownwood, and Waco fields have been best around available water in the afternoon. The season runs through Oct. 23. Prospects are fair.
North Zone: Corn, milo, and sunflowers continue to produce near Amarillo and Dumas. Feedlot tanks have held birds in the afternoon since few playas are wet. Abilene and Lubbock hunters have seen the same results. Red River hunters have seen their best shoots around treelines and watering troughs. More birds moved into the area this week with the cooler temperatures, and expect more with the forthcoming full moon. The season runs through Oct. 23. Prospects are fair.
