How can I tell what county I'm hunting in? I am on the border of navarro and freestone, but not sure which one to mark on the deer tag. We drive a ways on a dirt road to get where I hunt where there are no signs. Is there a website I can go to that has like a Google Earth view but shows the county lines on it?

Call the game warden to come out. That will be a huge feather in your hat with him.

You can use Websoil survey. com locate your place then use the Identify button.
It will give you the county and the lat/long of the point you selected.

First, find yourself on a map (whatever you are using), then find that location on either of the following maps.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Navarro+County,+TX/@31.9961729,-96.4147021,11z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x864f2bf342549b29:0x71151d4d3a0faf70

You will have to flip back and forth between the line drawing view and the satellite view, but this should get it for you.

And for Freestone...
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Freestone+County,+TX/@31.7534889,-96.1526985,10z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x8648bb9d828788d7:0xa8cdb2f4c9e30cd7

Download a something like MotionX-GPS on your phone and mark a waypoint at the stand(s) you are hunting (and name them/the waypoints). Then you can email the points to yourself. When you open the file up, you can open in google earth/google maps. Will show the GPS coordinates of the exact spots you are hunting.

I hunted a ranch that had a county line cutting through about half way. Ask the game warden about it for tag purposes and was told to reference the county that had the homestead. Ranch house was Mills County. North part of the ranch was Comanche County. We used Mills on tag

We had a deer shot in Mills county a few years ago and crossed the Colorado river into San Saba county before succumbing to his injury. Go figure how to tag that one.
