I have always hunted in west Texas for 20 years and I found a lease in Centerville. I have not found signs that there are alot of deer there. I was wondering does anyone else hunt in this area and what kind of success to you have?

there seem to be deer in the area..I've noticed that the folks I know who hunt the area seem to have better luck w/ a mixture of timber and pasture land on the places they hunt.

you are talkin' Big Centerville, right?

there are deer, especially in Leon County. The area gets hunted pretty hard because of its proximity to Dallas and Houston

I used to hunt in buffalo and saw tons of does and almost no bucks. Lots of hogs as well. Depending on where you are, there are actually some very nice deer in that area, but you have to find a bigger tract because it's a very heavily hunted area.

Another thing I'd mention is that the only success we ever had in harvesting a buck came by walking through the timber in the middle of the day. We jumped up a decent 10-pter that was bedded down in some brush beneath a big pine. He was about 100 yards from our camp.

I wasn't there, but a buddy of mine shot a coyote that came out of the woods growling, and right after he did, an 8-pt came out and gored the dead yote. Right up until my buddy shot it as well.

Weird place, but there are definitely deer there.

buddy of mine shot a 154 un-official score 10 point somewhere near centerville. There are deer but hogs seem to be a problem out there.

Yes I have noticed the hogs. I have never had hogs before and am waiting to see what kind of problems I have with that. On the other hand that is year round hunting that I have also never had. Will be going back down next weekend to look at camera pics and see whats up. Unfortunatly I am not on a large parsel of land, only 180 acres. We'll see, thanks for your .02.

unlike the hill country which i love dearly, you actually have to work for the deer in east Texas......I hunt across the hwy near buffalo........my best advice: Plant a food plot (clover) !
Your gonna be real disappointed if u throw a feeder up and wait........Centerville is awesome, lots of deer, and some nice deer.......good luck

We've hunted in Leona about 3 years ago right before antler restrictions. There were always good numbers of deer but hunting pressure was insanely high. In the 3 or 4 years we hunted we probably saw two or three that would meet today's restrictions. It would be interesting to go back and see what that would be now. Opening day out there sounded like the fourth of July. We were only on 200 acres just south of Leona but good graciois it was bad! Always a ton of hogs.

If you do take up this place I recommend steak night in Leona. Only open Friday and Saturday but ohhh so good. Pretty small place right at the only yellow blinking light. Ive heard they've had to expand to take on the "crowds".

Thanks for all your posts. My hunting partner and I have been doing research on food plots and are going to get started next weekend. Will keep you guys posted. I believe that we will take up residence here because of the price of our lease. I got broke from all the high price leases. This land looks like it has alot of promise and we are going to work our tales off to make this work. texas

Got drawn for bow hunt at Fort boggy this month end. The booklet says its by compartment. Could use some help or suggestions if youve hunted there before.
