WS Sherrill Waterfowl of Wharton
Texas goose hunts, Wharton County, TexasOur hunts take place on 40,000-plus privately owned acres, and have been doing so for 35 years. Waterfowl hunting has changed over the years; however, one thing hasn?t ? the need for water.
As we begin our 36st year, we have run over 6,000 hunts to over 25,000 hunters ? successful hunts have built our reputation. Our business is built on customer service and satisfaction ? 90% of our hunters are repeat customers, and 60% of our clients have hunted with us 8 seasons or longer. In fact, one pair of hunters, John Perry and Tim Mercer, have enjoyed 575 consecutive limit duck hunts as of the close of the 2011-2012 season. We expect that number to rise higher this season.
Coastal duck hunting in Wharton County, Texas
We hold consistent concentrations of snow geese, Canada geese and specklebellies (white-fronted geese), and exceptional duck numbers, including pintails, wigeons, blue-winged teal, green-winged teal, gadwalls and the occasional mallard.
Water is the key ingredient to successful waterfowling. We pump hundreds of acres of water ? more than any outfitter on the Texas coast. The abundance of water allows us to hold birds from opening day in November to the close of the season in late January.

If you hunt the same pond day after day the birds will leave. However, when you create over 40 ponds ranging in size from 10-100 acres, and know how to manage, rest and rotate these ponds, you can consistently harvest birds. We do not overhunt our properties ? that is how we manage to keep shotgun barrels blazing.
