San Angelo has great deer hunting, north of you near lubbock great duck hunting.. I can't even imagine how good the quail hunting is... In Texas it's all about who you know, most people with ranches or leases will be happy to take you out as a "guest" so you can get your feet wet. Be a good neighbor, camper,etc when you go and you 'll be invited back quick. I've lived in Texas my whole life and usually never pay for dove or duck hunting and get invited to the big leases occasionally though I don't really care for shooting huge deer over feeders but to each his own. Best of luck to you, West Texas folks are some of the best!


Yeah, I've already had a neighbor tell me I can bird hunt the fields around my house. I cover around 700 miles of pipeline in my job, and I've seen several cattle ranches already that have lots of deer and turkeys, but don't look like anybody is hunting them. I'm thinking the ranchers may not want Hunters because of the risk of a stray bullet hitting a cow. I'm hoping I can build a good relationship with some of them and maybe get permission to bowhunt. Or find one that's willing to lease to a bowhunter.
