Now anyone can build their own hunting blind for a fraction of the cost of prefabricated blinds.

EZ Tower Deer Blind Kits

Our new EZ Tower Deer Blind Kit simplifies blind & tower construction, takes the guesswork out of leg angles and provides a rock solid connection between the deer blind and the tower.

The unique modular design of our hunting blinds enables it to be disassembled into separate sections in minutes. Instead of strapping a huge, heavy tower blind onto a heavy flatbed trailer, simply load the lightweight sections into the bed of your pickup and go! Reassembly at your hunting site is quick and easy!

The all-welded, heavy duty steel bracket construction ensures safety and reliability. The leg posts and framing lumber simply slide into the custom sleeves on the brackets and bolt in place.

The EZ Deer Blind Kit includes four steel corner brackets (above) a 10 page set of easy-to-follow building instructions complete with color images and photos, and a detailed materials list for the lumber and hardware.

The initial construction of the basic blind can be completed in your garage or driveway in half a day, then quickly disassembled for easy hauling. Only basic carpentry skills and framing tools are needed.

By making some simple dimension adjustments to the plans, you can build a 4×8′ deer tower blind for about the same price as a 4×6′. Build a 4×4′ deer tower blind for even less! The tower height for your blind will be determined by the length of the leg posts you choose.

The EZ Deer Blind Kit now makes quality deer hunting tower blinds affordable for everyone! The 4’× 6′ deer hunting tower blind (pictured left) can be built complete for around $700! This estimate includes the price of the EZ Deer Blind Kit ($289) and all necessary lumber, hardware and paint (purchased separately). Now you may also elect to take the no payment and 0 interest option if paid within 6 months!

Find a Texas Hunting Lease
Deer hunting land for lease is big business in Texas. Texas landowners hold a unique position.  Unlike many other states, Texas has little federally or state-owned land available for public hunting.  As a matter of fact, 98% of all lands available for Texas hunting are privately owned.  This position affords the Texas landowner a unique source of income.  Read More

Dove Hunting in Texas

Dove hunting is a big deal in Texas. And not just because it is the first domino to fall in a long line of hallowed hunting seasons that pretty much define autumn and winter for hundreds of thousands of men, women and children around this sprawling state. Even in a bad year, Texas dove hunting can be outstanding. One of the main reasons why is numbers. Staggering numbers.

Wildlife experts estimate Texas has a resident mourning dove breeding population of about 50 million birds. That is significantly more than any other state and about 18 percent of the nation’s total mourning dove population of 275 million. The numbers….

Texas Hunting Leases

One of the things that sets hunting in Texas apart from most other states is that 98% of the huntable land is privately owned.  Therefore, if you hunt in Texas  you probably lease trespass rights from a private landowner.  Free public hunting land is scarce and often overcrowded with the hunting opportunities that are available there.  In contrast, most other states have ample publicly-owned land that affords hunters free access.

I’ve learned a few things about Texas hunting leases, hunters and landowners since the launching this website in 1998.  One of the most common questions I hear is, “when is the best time to be looking for a new lease?”  The answer to that is anytime you don’t have one, because you never know when the one you want will become available.  Hunters often begin looking for their new lease right after deer season ends.  Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of  leases being advertised at that time of year because hunters haven’t told the landowners they’re currently with that they intend to move.  Although new lease….

TPWD Adopts 2017-18 Migratory Game Bird Seasons

 AUSTIN – South Texas dove hunters will see increased opportunity this year thanks to a season framework adjustment expanding the early September 4-day Special White-winged Dove Area hunting season to the entire South Zone boundary. The change is part of the 2017-18 migratory game bird seasons adopted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.  “For the second straight year, Texas will be taking advantage of a 90-day dove season and the expansion of early white-winged dove hunting during the first two weekends in September, in effect, create early September hunting opportunities statewide for the first time ever,” said Dave Morrison, TPWD Wildlife Division deputy director.

Texas Hunting Leases

Access to land is one of the biggest challenges for sport hunters these days, and various forms of fee hunting can allow ranchers and other landowners to capitalize on resources they already have. These arrangements potentially can generate significant supplemental income, but of course a successful – and sustainable – hunting enterprise involves more than setting a fee and watching the money roll in.

Follow these tips to avoid turning minor gunsmithing mistakes into expensive problems.

Hunting In Texas

At-home gunsmith projects are great. Working on your own gun creates a deeper familiarity and connection with your firearm.  But if you make a mistake, the task can easily turn from a quick fix to an expensive project.

Ask any professional gunsmith, and he or she will tell you countless stories of customers sheepishly walking in with a disassembled gun-in-a-bag. These do-it-yourself projects gone bad end up costing a pretty penny. Most gunsmiths charge…

EZ Deer Blind Kit

Texas deer hunters have long been using elevated blinds to hunt from.  Elevated tower blinds afford the hunter the ability to see 360 degrees.  Looking over and down into the thick brush and/or cover is much more effective than trying to look through it from the ground.  Where the cover is particularly thick, it can be next to impossible to see past it even 10 yards.  An elevated tower makes the hunter much more successful.

Javelina Hunting in Texas

 The Javelina is probably the closest thing to a stalking bowhunter’s dream there is.  Although very nearsighted, they have a keen sense of smell and excellent hearing.  A bowhunter who stalks his prey from downwind has a very good chance of getting into bow range of one of these critters.

Texas Hog Hunting

State officials say the feral hog population in Texas could be as high as 2 million.  The hogs cause nearly $400 million in damage a year, tearing up lawns and farmers’ fields as they dig for acorns or grubs to eat.  With some old boars reaching close to 400 lbs, they can also cause significant damage and injuries in car accidents when running out in front of vehicles.
