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 Leases 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….

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

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.
