Where and Why?

Mayfield Ranch, Juno Texas in between Del Rio and Sonora on the Dry Devils River. My family was on it for almost thirty years. Mayfield Country Store right on the edge of the property we used to drive over to the store at night in our jeeps to pass the pleasure with Mr Mayfield in his package store where the state law against consuming alcoholic beverages on the premises was regularly ignored. Sometimes with the Game Warden sitting there with us.

Fantastic Rock Cabin with Bunk Room. Could also hunt White Wings, Blue Quail, and Turkeys. Many the late afternoon if we were not hunting and sitting in Mr Mayfields back yard dozens of wild turkeys would come in and roost in the Pecan Trees.

Man I miss that place. Not a better place to sit aroound a fire ring and drink Brown Water in Texas.

My current mule deer lease in Pecos County. No feeders, stand and not a high population of mule deer on a very large ranch, but is it fun to try to find those bucks.

The best lease I was ever on were the ones I was on with my Dad when I was growing up!!! He died about 8 years ago and was sick for a few years before that!!! Even today when I line up to shoot an animal I still remember the way he used to whisper advice to me!!! I wish he was still here and able to hunt with me!!!

still looking... I've been on leases with big deer, but other issues. leases with no issues, but hardly any deer. hard to find that perfect place.

it's almost like big deer make things a pain in the [censored].

Outside Big Lake. 10,000 acres with lots of cap rock to walk and find deer.

The one I'm on now. Just three of us, and I picked the other two. All are responsible and respectful. No drama. We've got a basic but comfortable cabin. The deer aren't real big, but we have good numbers, killer scenery, and a WMA effort in progress. Also have good turkeys, some quail, and the occasional but not excessive pig.

Just a dang nice place to spend time. My only complaint is I can't get up there enough.

Current lease. 140's are common. Can sit and watch several deer a day. No feeders no blind, just a section of crp with wooded edgerows. Section ain't a lot but it's just me and my son on it. Plus its free, all I have to do is be friends with the elderly owner, which is one of the biggest pleasures. Great man with great stories of the old days. Truly an honor to know him.

Had a lease outside of Perrin, TX and although the deer weren't very big the numbers increased. My father leased from the family for about 30 years until the widow finally passed. The elevation changes, nice tanks, government lakes, and just the place I grew up on. When we lost that place I think we moved junk off for two months.

I often think about those memories as I got to hunt with my grandfather, my dad, brother, uncles, and other men whose kids are like family. I would give anything to give my son the same experience on that place or one similar.

They were all good. Someone else paid for them or I traded work for 'em. Now I got my own place. banana
