I recently moved to Dallas from Houston and am looking to get into some hunting in the area. The only real hunting I've done was when I lived in Durango, Colorado a few years ago. Was able to get over the counter bull Elk tags for $45 and head out into the national forest. Same for mule deer and turkey. I haven't done much hunting in Texas.

What are my options for hunting in the DFW area? I'm guessing the public land options aren't as abundant as in Colorado? Do you have to have a lease? If so, what's the best way to find one? I'm looking to hunt deer, dove, turkey, duck, rabbit or hogs. I just enjoy being out in nature every once in a while.

Also, when I was out of state it was easy to head to some public land to target shoot or sight rifles in. Are there any places like that near NW Dallas? It's a lot easier and more enjoyable than having to be at a shooting range with a bunch of other people, cease fires, etc.

I appreciate any input you guys may have! I'm glad I found this website!
