I've got a co-workers that is interested in getting on a lease. They're probably gonna try to do a weekend or two on a day lease this season and try to get a season lease for the 2016 season. Does anybody have any recommendations for a day lease within 3 hours of DFW that is at least decent. I think they'd be happy to get a doe or two, but obviously wouldn't mind taking a buck either. Thanks fellas.

I'd say look through the "lands and Leases" section, they come up in there more than anywhere. Or see if a MOD will move your post to that section.

I started a new thread in the "land and Leases" section, but if anybody would like to still make a comment here that'd be fine too. I'll be checking both, unless the moderators want to delete this thread.

I personally would not do a day lease. Rather, I would just book a couple doe hunts on established and quality ranches. Cost will be the same or less, and the experience probably better.

He will be a lot better off buying a doe or whatever. Day leases are generally shot out unless you get it the first couple of days. Guaranteed Does are probably not any more money than a day lease for a day and you will get a deer.

Thanks guys, that's a much better idea. I will keep an eye out for doe hunts in the "guides and outfitters" section for my newbie co-worker. I think having their hunt at a well managed ranch will be a much better introduction to deer hunting then some shot-out, over-pressured day lease. Maybe they'll see some nice bucks and get hooked on hunting, this would be my hope for him and his young family. Thanks, again fellas.

Ditto. He'll have a better, more successfull hunt, more than likely.

Doe hunt is way to go. But if he bow hunts Heart Of Texas is a good place.
