I would bet good money that duck pic was taken at McGowan Brake outside Bastrop
damn, hunted and fished there for years as a kid...I think I can see it now (at the boat launch area at front?), but how did you pick that out??
Killed my first duck ever there, early 70s...killed many wood ducks and mallards after that, all wading on the backside of the lake.
When Pennzoil/United Gas sold the lake then, I believe it went for about $100k...what a steal
