Rockport, Texas is a hotspot for duck hunting. The scenic Texas coastal flats are a challenging, but rewarding experience, as the local species—pintail, widgeon, teal, bluebills, redheads, gadwalls, buffleheads, and scaup ducks—are well camouflaged. The Rockport duck hunting season lasts from November to January, which conveniently aligns with the most affordable vacation rental rates of the year.
