Anyone know about the overall hunting in Turkey,TX real close to the caprock? I am looking up that way for a lease and don't know anything about it. Thanks in advance.

If your wanting to hunt whitetail I wouldn't waste your time, that being said you can shoot a good buck but there just hardly none there and very boring hunting very. And closer to caprock the more mule deer you get. I was on a 10k acre place and only one to tag out out of ten guys. Only two mature whitetail bucks were on that ranch on camera as well. If I had a choice go to Clarendon or colligsworth for deer numbers and just more enjoyable hunts

Umm, I disagree that there isn't any whitetails or big whitetails, I'm on a lease close to Turkey, this is one of the bucks taken on our lease this year:



This buck is on my camera last week, I was trying for him during season, but never showed while I was looking for him:



We have more mule deer than Whitetails, however there can be some quality bucks of both species around Turkey...

You can shoot a good buck but it's boring hunting and that whitetail was shot in turkey just north of it but only one mature buck I saw

Can be really hit and miss up there. Not a lot of numbers and definitely need a large number of acres per hunter. I have some buddies that hunt about halfway between Turkey and Clarendon that have shot some good deer. Also know a guy who shot a monster closer to Memphis a few years back. I love that country though.

Turkey TX is an awesome area to hunt-if you find a lease and need an extra give me a shout! I'd love to hunt up in that area again sooner rather than later!

Very nice! I am going to give the lease a try. If you have any other pictures with mule deer or whitetail I would love to see them. I also wondering about the scenery in that area, along with the terrain. Thanks
