Why should you pick Third Coast Outfitters for your goose or duck hunt?

Just one word answers that question: Passion.

We do not hunt because we want to. We hunt because we have to. The "Passion" or the "Force" that drives a goose or duck hunting guide for Third Coas...

Will the 2017-2018 goose season be a good season for Third Coast?

My answer is yes. The US Fish and Wildlife annual Waterfowl Status Report says that snow geese had a good to better than average hatch of juvenile birds. The main ingredient for a good goose season is her...

I went on my first Goose hunt in December 1969. We arrived in the field and there were about 300 torn sheets scattered over the field. I thought good lord! What is this?

It has been suggested that as friends with Doug, I should share some stories. Of course I have many of them, most are Triple X rated. And since my grandchildren could be reading this blog, I want to keep things somewhat on the clean side. But as it happens, one of the...

In my 64 years on this planet, I have had the privilege of having many, many great friends. But today marks the anniversary of the death of one of my very best friends - and partner in crime - Leon Douglas Shipp.

Shipp was always the prankster, and always up for an...

I've had the honor of owning several great dogs.

Each one has had his own personality, but has always had one thing in common -- They were great hunters and their first name all started with Ch.

Growing up on the Texas Coastal Prairie, we always knew that Eagle Lake Texas was The Goose Hunting Capital of the World.

Well it ain't true no more. The Jonesboro Arkansas goose numbers dwarf the Eagle Lake numbers I saw in the early seventies.
