Loc: San Diego to Caddo Mills
....I promise. I was born and raised here, and after 34 years we've finally reached our limit and are turning our backs on CA and their garbage for good.

We're closing escrow on our place here in East SD in 11 days, and also closing escrow on our new place out in Caddo Mills around the 20th. We're looking forward to getting back to small town living and having our boys grow up Texan. I can tell you first hand....the things you read and hear about CA are true, and then some. Cali is a lost cause.

Anyway, upland wing shooting and predators are my thing. Ive been deadly out west in the dark of night with my foxpro, some #4 mag buckshot, and my NightEyesLights red LED headlamp. I realize things are a bit different in TX though with public land being scare and limitations on night hunting for non-game preds even.

Ive been reading up on Caddo Nat'l Grasslands and Old Sabine Bottom WMA. Sounds like the regs for pursuits, shooting hours, and ammo type change all of the time for these types of places. Im wanting to spend few months doing more research and some scouting before actually squeezing off any shots. Hopefully develop relationships with some land owners in the surrounding areas too. There has got to be opportunities that'll keep me hunting when I get there.

Watch out for your new neighbors. I hear that Caddo Mills has some dubious characters.

You'll be right in my backyard, Greenville, so I have to ask... what made you settle on Caddo Mills?
Don't forget to buy those boys fishing poles. And get them signed up for the Huter Safety Certification class ASAP.
There is a really nice Cajun place just behind the Truck Stop there at the Caddo Mills exit off 30, good food and they have a BYOB license.

Seemingly, but no need to try and wash off the dirty politics and freak show that never stuck. I dont have a liberal bone in my body. I also dont think there was ever a single proposition or state bill that I ever backed. CA politics are so bizarre that they almost make politics in DC seem normal. I will say this though...being a Vet myself I was damn proud to have Congressman Duncan Hunter as my Rep in DC.

Dubious would be a step above the characters that walk among us here in CA.

Caddo has a great school system and that was appealing to us. Plus I have no interest being caught up in the hustle and bustle of the inner-city DFW area, or going North on the 75. We looked at Lavon, Nevada, Royse, Josephine....and you just get more house for you money in Caddo. Ive actually been out there and driven all over that area several times and liked it.

The cajun place sounds legit! You better believe I'll down there on day 1 or 2. Cajun and BBQ are my favorites, so Im in good hands in TX. Plus, what's not to like about a place that lets you BYOB.

Well Ive worked hard for every pelt that is hanging on the wall in my garage, so Im good with putting in some seat time in order to be successful.

Bow hunting will be a new leaf turning over for me, but I am not opposed to it. I do have a pretty fierce Barnett crossbow though. Here in CA crossbows cannot be used during archery season and only during rifle season. So for obvious reasons it didnt get much use. Thanks for the heads up on the other areas for pig. Pig hunting is something I hope to really get into with my sons. Theyre only 3 and 5, but I have a feeling theyre going to love it. My wife thinks she is ready to get into Dove and Turkey hunting, but I just laugh and ask her how she expects to wing shoot with a Starbucks coffee in her hand?

Would check on the crossbow during archery hunts on WMA. 2nd year have missed archery hunts at OSBWMA cause of shoulders, & i dont qualfy for disability. been turned down . Some Public land does have gun hunts for deer. Most archery only & no crossbow unless disabled. Best wishes flag

Welcome,

As a misplaced Texan (born and raised in California, but knew I didn't belong) I moved here two years ago and love it. I'm north of the Metro-plex trying to find places to hunt.
