Hi everyone I am coming to Texas next week for the first time my girl friends family lives there in Colman and has a large track of land any tips or advise from the experts that hunt Texas all the time would be appreciated. I will be there for a week being from Mississippi I am sure Texas is very different Thanks.

Can you feed deer in MS? If so, you already know the "program"! If your in-laws have feeders or deer plots out, use those. If not, get a couple bags of corn when you get here and spread a bag in a place that looks good to you (in laws should be able to tell the best areas). Will be the same "deer hunt'n" just shorter trees grin

The you will be OK with the feeding part. I believe the rut is on now and may be partially over?, There are a couple Coleman threads if you go back a few pages iirc.

Be sure and check TPWD regs for out of state hunters. Kinda pricey in my opinion. If your girlfriend is still a Texas resident it might be she needs to do the hunting for ya'll grin . Good luck and welcome to THF. http://tpwd.texas.gov/regulations/outdoor-annual/licenses/hunting-licenses-and-permits

No all I was told was it was near the town of Colman but I am sure that's a lot of area in Texas.
