I lost my lease 2 years ago, had 600 acres for $800 per gun. I have since given up looking for another unicorn like the one I had, and now sign up for TPWD draw hunts for my kids. I don't really care if it is me or my kids who get to take the deer so long as I get to take my boys hunting and get some deer in my freezer. Last year we went on one hunt on Matagorda Island and had a good time, hope to do it again this year. Also the Texas Youth Hunting Program has some good hunts for cheap.
My opinion and $5 will get you a coffee at Starbucks!
