Red Bluff Prarie Hunting Club - Garwood, TX


I have hunted waterfowl with Mike Lanier in the Garwood, Texas area for twenty years. The reason I keep going back, year after year, is Mike's attention to detail and, of course, his ability to put you consistently on ducks. He scouts the prairie every afternoon during the waterfowl season and gives you an honest prediction of what you will experience. His blinds are excellent because of his attitude that "Successful duck hunting is a year round activity that requires a lot of work. They just let us pull the trigger during the season". His retrievers are well mannered and efficient. He and his guides are great hunting company and their respect for the resource is something you will pick up on right away. I highly recommend that you book some hunts with Mike and his wife Paula at Red Bluff Prairie Hunting Club this coming waterfowl season.

For over 15 years, Mike Lanier has consistently provided, not only the best waterfowl hunting available, due to his lifelong commitment to his beloved Prairie, but by coupling his incredible knowledge, experience, sportsmanship and overall good humor, has generated an untold number of fantastic life long memories for me, my family, and friends. Mike is a Sportsman's Sportsman. He and his wife Paula are "doing it right" at Red Bluff Prairie for the future of waterfowl hunting on the Texas Coastal Prairie!

I have had the good fortune of spending the last 5 years waterfowling with Mike Lanier. Mike is an ethical guide who does his homework in order to make your hunt a memorable one. He does his scouting during the season, but more importantly, he does the work in the off season. He knows what ducks like and it is obvious when you see the hunting spots he prepares. He is an excellent duck caller and hunting with him is an experience I always look forward to.

I enjoy taking my kids hunting with me, and Mike goes out of his way to teach them and make it a fantastic hunt. Hunting with Mike is like hunting with family, his patience and his love of waterfowling are contagious.

If you are looking for first class waterfowling, and enjoy pitching in with the decoys, and like to hunt in comfortable blinds, call Mike. I guarantee you will enjoy it, and you will want to come back again and again.

I have hunted waterfowl around the Houston, Texas area and throughout the USA for 40 years, but I did not know hunting ducks could be this good until I hunted with Mike Lanier. I knew 15 years ago that I found what I was looking for after so many years and so many different guides and outfitters. He is the real thing!!!!! He knows, loves, and is passionate about duck hunting. He is a superb caller of ducks and geese. He is a wonderful, kind person and a pleasure to share a blind with. I have the most respect for him as a person and a hunting guide. Many of my friends have had "the best duck hunt of their lives" in his blinds. Every time I have a chance to hunt with him it is a treat for me. I have a hard time sleeping, but sleep like a baby the rest of the year. He is well prepared in every aspect of the hunt – namely his care, preparation, and maintenance of the ponds. His blinds are so comfortable even friends in their 80s occasionally hunt with us. At the present time, I hunt with Mike and his wife Paula many times a year. I shoot a 28 gauge over and under with Hevishot reloads. I hate to share this!!! But he is also my friend and if he does well I will be able to hunt with him for many more years. I forgot to mention his great retrievers, especially a young dog named Annie, shes DYNAMITE!
