Kevin started his waterfowl hunting career as a teenager in North Texas. His sole focus in the beginning was hunting puddle ducks over potholes, sloughs, and flooded bottom lands. By the time he was 17, he had grown men wanting to go hunting with him most weekends. From there, he landed a job with a hunting club on the Eagle Lake rice prairie, that’s where the fire started to grow. Growing up in an area where a good scout equaled a good hunt, he couldn’t wrap his head around the fact that despite seeing thousands of geese and ducks, we may only scratch out a half-limit. Several years on the rice prairie taught him hard work, persistence, and a damn good hide were key to being a consistently successful waterfowl guide. After years of visiting the Texas Panhandle shooting limits of little geese and piles of greenheads, he decided to make the panhandle his waterfowl home. “Founding Fowl Plains Outfitters and building the lodge has allowed me to watch my dreams play out in real time.”
For as long he can remember Garrett has been hunting and fishing throughout Texas. He began going with his dad and his buddies at a very young age until he was able to get out on his own and explore new things. He started out hunting all sorts of animals until fowl stuck in his brain. It all started along the saltwater coast of Texas and eventually moved to the rice prairie. Shortly after graduation Garrett moved down to the coast and started his own fishing business. “Moving back and forth from fishing to hunting gives me the chance to follow my dream year round and also experience different seasons around the world being outdoors 12 months in a row”. Now with him being in the Texas panhandle working for Fowl Plains it is an amazing style and environment for all hunters looking for a good time and lots of action! Focusing on customers and entertainment are a few things Garrett likes to dwell on along with preparing meals with freshly harvested animals for our clients. Come see us and Garrett will put a smile on your face and birds in your belly!

Conner was born and raised in East Texas and learned how to hunt and fish from his dad at an early age. Growing up was deer, quail, dove and turkey at the lease in West Texas, and ducks in Arkansas and around home. He grew up loving all hunting, but knew from his first duck hunt that waterfowling was his favorite. Learning to hunt and blow a call from some of the best in Arkansas, he took that knowledge home and applied it to the ducks of East Texas with great success. Coming to Lubbock for a short lived college football career gave Conner the opportunity to hunt Lesser Canada Geese and Sandhill Crane, as well as his beloved ducks, and he’s been honing his skills on the Southern Plains since he got here.

Jack grew up in the Texas hill country and found a passion for waterfowl hunting in the marsh grass and mesquite filled lakes of the Texas coast. When he moved to the panhandle he discovered a love for huge groups of screaming lesser geese. Since 2015 he has scouted geese day in and day out every season. He has a hard time getting away from wads of greenheads dumping into small playa lakes. He farms full time up until hunting season starts, which gives him great opportunities to connect with local farmers and land owners. At Fowl Plains he strives to end every hunt with a laugh and a pile of birds, so expect jokes to be cracked and birds to fall with him in the blind.
