I hunted a couple of seasons with DJ Farms, did not do very well. Nice folks and plenty of land but not many birds. It has been a few years so it might be worth checking out again. I go west for dove.

Pretty spot on with my opinion as well. Vernon, the guy that ran the operation, is on here and is a great guy, and very hospitable. When I hunted with them there were 9K acres to hunt. I didnt scout out the area much due to not enough time. It seemed to me that certain areas were hunted extremely hard. With that much land there has to be a few honey holes. I believe it is priced appropriately, and if I lived closer I would definitely do it again just for the access to that much land to hunt. IMO, too many hunters hunting the same few places, and not enough birds. Maybe some of that has changed.

Thanks guys, let me know if I can help show someone around or tell you more.

Last year was down, two years ago was very good early, then again late, but slow in the middle, year before was awful everywhere, right now we're seeing birds already, hope the heat and storms stay away for about 6 more weeks!

Join our team to make money, ask me how.

I had hunted on them the past five years, but won't be able to this year. The Normans and Vernon are great people.

Some of the fields are huge, and there a lot of fields. Most of the time you will have the fields to yourself. I rarely ran into other hunters (didn't hunt opening day or weekend out there) so you might need some help pushing the birds around a bit.

I think it is a good value for the amount of land that goes with the lease.

Vernon knows. He lives out there. I have been on it for about 6 years. Hunted the Leonard side mainly. There have been some good ones. Any time you have as many grain fields as they do there will be good ones and bad. Scouting is key. Expect some crowds opening weekend in the fields where the birds are. 2 years ago the opener would have been great for me but I was one field away from the action. My son and I normally hunt together but I oonly bought one pass this year. After a staph infection in the foot and a skin graft I am not sure how much I will be hunting. I did have an incident last year where a guy tried to set up 10 yards behind me. I finally got him to move after quite and argument. Most people out there are pretty courteous.

North Texas hunting- scout- about feed and water. Opening weekend can be very good. Typically hit or miss. Trade off for distance.
