With our bags packed full of Ball and Buck including The Field Pant, The Hunters Shirt, Upland Edition, and Shell Carrier Bag we set out long before the sun rose to arrive in Port Isabel before lunch before the opener which officially opens at high . This extra time allowed us to spend the day eating fresh ceviche and drinking cold beverages in the salt waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Luckily, Ball and Buck has the gear to cover everything from that sandy afternoon in the 6 Point Active Short on through to two days under the blistering South Texas sun, which happened to dump a fair share of rain on our parade the second day. Never the less, we were covered.
Throughout the weekend, there was hardly a dull moment to be had as time in the field amongst friends and family should be. We fired off the grill right alongside the road to cook up lunch over hot coals and kept it burning through to our celebratory cold beverages at the completion of the afternoon. Birds flew plentiful both days with no shortage even for those whom may have been shooting a bit rusty. Bittersweet, we left the fieldcovered in mud and coolers full of birds to clean up and end the incredible weekend once again over hot coals, cooking the fruits of an outdoorsman’s labor.
Take your friends hunting, you won’t be disappointed in time spent outdoors.
