Founded in 1974 by Gene Campbell, Oyster Bayou Hunting Club is the premier destination for guided waterfowl hunting on the Gulf Coast. Although we do offer memberships to individuals or groups, OBHC is primarily a daily guiding service on private property.

All of our property is connected and surrounded by the local wildlife refuge. We hunt out of pit blinds only and your guide will bring you and your guests directly to your destination via UTV or boat.


We run guided hunts only out of pit blinds with bilge pumps on private property. You will be dropped off at the blind by boat or UTV, so there is no need for waders or walking. We recommend wearing knee boots in case it’s wet and to dress for the weather. Other than that you just need to bring your guns, ammo, licenses, and a dark cap.

All of our guides have years of experience and capable dogs. Some of them hunt out of large decoy spreads (up to 1000) and move their decoys around and add or take away from their spread as the season goes on. Some of the guides hunt in areas which are hunted less frequently and use smaller spreads which are picked up each day.

Some of our hunting locations are in the marsh and accessible by a combination of boat rides from a public boat ramp. A few more of the marsh ponds are accessed by a combination of a UTV and a boat. And the rest are accessed by a UTV driving right up to the blind itself.

We lease approximately 8,000 acres and have about 1,500 acres of designated rest areas which are never hunted. We have 12 hunting locations that we can hunt but will only hunt them all on the opening weeekends. About half of our ponds are in the marsh and the rest are in naturally vegetated fallow fields to the north. All of our property is connected and we are surrounded on all sided by the local wildlife refuge which are keys to our success.


We are located on FM 562 in Anahuac, Texas. We are approximately 45 miles away from both George Bush International Airport and Hobby Airport in Houston. There is also a regional airport 10 minutes away.

Anahuac has the majority of the items you might need during your stay inlcuding a liquor store, several restaurants and grocery stores, etc., but if you need any ammunition or if you have more specific needs then we would recommend stopping in the Baytown/Mont Belvieu area which is about halfway between Houston and our location.


Clean bedding and towels are provided, as is breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you have any special dietary needs, please inform us ahead of time so that we may plan accordingly. Water, coffee, tea, milk, and orange juice is provided. Bring your own alcohol and other drinks you may desire.


All of our blinds are dry-dock access meaning there is no need for you to bring your waders unless that’s what makes you comfortable. We recommend knee boots and to just dress for the weather. Other than that, bring your shotgun (WITH A PLUG), STEEEL ammunition, and a valid hunting license. Everything else is covered.
