I never saw any snakes at laguna, but it is definitely snake country. Aside from elk hunting it's one of the best times I've ever had out in the woods. 30,000 acres w/ Texas elk (nilgai), big white tails & big porkers. There's a lot of other hunters out there but most of them are only trained in corn feeder sitting so when you strip that from them they get confused and stay close to the roads.

The nilgai are very smart. Makes it a ton of fun. Especially if still hunting. I'll be at LRGV this season in December.

A nilgai is a creature that can be found simply by typing "nilgai" into a search engine. [Razz] [jumper] [Razz]


Seriously, it is a big Asian antelope that was brought to TX for hunting and, like other exotics, escaped and can now be hunted in certain public areas.

Alrighty then! Thanks!!! Do you really need a special permit to hunt "exotic" animals? Perhaps I'm confuseing them with invasive, but don't most states try to weed out, non native animals?

There's a special exotic license. ITs $48 for a 5 day non-res exotic license. Finding a place to hunt is the trick. Im not an expert in texas hunting yet. But it seems everything is really locked down via lease. So you either are rich, know a guy, or pay for a guide. But TPWD does have hunts you can draw as this post shows. There is a small amount of public land but research shows its not great.

My hunting buddy saw a rattler, he said it was a big'un.
I only saw a couple black Indigo snakes, one was about 5ft long, the other was dangggg long. Didn't wait around to measure it. LOL
Grass is way to tall to see anything around my legs,... so, I wore snake boots.
