I have been researching for hours and I cannot locate anything within a 3 hour drive of Houston for public Quail..

Am I missing something?

Any help would be awesome.. Thanks guys!

I am not asking for the answers, just maybe point me in the right direction?

Public quail hunting in Texas. Chaparral WMA (5-6 hour drive from Whos-town) 5 open days a year, you just missed two of them. A small place just north of Chaparral WMA about the same opportunity. Check TPWD public hunting areas, very few within three hours of Whos-town. Choke Canyon has some public hunting for quail, (3.5 - 4 hours) but it's at bit too woodsy for hunting quail.

Just south of Columbus, TX on I-10 @ 1 hour west of Whos-town is a hunting preserve, Top-Flight Hunting. Leon's a great guy, quail @ 8$ ea, they also have Chukar and Pheasant, but they are 'flight-conditioned' birds.

Good Luck.

I have also hunted at Top Flight in Columbus. The group had a great time and those quail where really fast and flew well. Calculate gas and your time into the total cost, I bet you would at least break even by going to Top Flight.

I have been searching for the same thing since I have moved here and have not had any luck. There are wild quail in the Gulf Coast region many miles southwest of Houston. But public hunting areas are only limited to waterfowl, to my knowledge.

Good luck.
