If you've hunted Texas your whole life, I'm sorry. The hunting here is soooooooo weak. If you can call it hunting. You can pay for a "shot at tied up animal" hunt. You can pay someone TONS of $$$$, or you can hunt crap land.

I moved here from Utah for a great job. I've been here 18 months and it's time to move back west. I moved without researching the Hunting, thinking it can't be bad...It's Texas, Cowboy land. I would never pay to hunt, you can do that at a carnival. Shooting an animal on fenced land or flat land is like skiing in Kansas. In Utah you can hike a 100 miles without seeing a road and you're in 100ft pines, aspens, etc... you know beautiful land. I could drive 45 minutes and be into a tons of elk, mule deer, or moose. My fee for my last elk was $50 bow license.

I only rant because I'm constantly hearing hunters at work talk about Texas hunting and I just laugh inside.

Do yourself a favor. Get an out of state license and hunt Utah, Wy, Idaho, or Colorado. You'll have to actually hunt and untie the deer. P.S No Hogs smile You'll pay less on airfare, license than these phoney pay hunts. Man I'm ranting.... What a joke, shooting a Rhino on private land. BIG HUNTER!!! Sorry if I pissed someone off, but it's all true.

I hunted Utah. Shot a mule deer across a canyon. 2 hunters took it before I could get around the canyon. Love public land hunting. Have a safe trip!

I agree with you on the high fence and / or hunting over feeders

but it is what it is here

you are encouraged to hunt public land in Tejas to get a taste of hunting challenges

a native american indian will look at you hunting in Utah with your
rifle and euro optics, he too, will say that your hunting experience is weak

the best thing to do is type up your rant then hit the Delete button

Not real sure what you don't like about Texas, it seems you think it should be giving to you? Some beautiful country about where you talked about hunting,looks even better in the review coming home. I know a lot of people in those states, some good and not. One thing they all have in common is as some point I've heard all them say how hunting should be free, health care, and so on. Sounds like you fall into this category. Do you realize how much of Texas is privately owned? Hunting ain't free but dang it it's fun. Have fun back west.

I knew I'd get blasted. It's ok, because we all know I'm right. In Texas people talk about hunting acres in the west you talk about hunting 100's of sq miles, no fences. I'd defend it if I was a born Texans also. Question... Do hunting ranches breed animals smile

I don't think hunting should be free. Actually I think Utah and Idaho should charge more. However, I don't think you should need to pay land owners or be left with the leftover crap land. I also don't think there should be "guaranteed hunts". There is hunting and there is shooting an animal, two different things.

tell me about these 'permits' you have to have. Seems to me if you don't get drawn, you don't get to hunt at all, and even then it's for one animal. My Texas license gets me seven deer, no 'permit' required. So you can take you're 'I'm right' and shove it.

I have not hunted with a rifle, not counting coyotes, for 15 years.
