As far as I know the closest lynx are in the San Juan mountains of Colorado. You can add bear, elk, and mountain lions to your list though.

Eddie 4529 and friends,

I have been stationed here in El Paso at Fort Bliss for about two years now. Here in West Texas there is not much. There are a few Mule deer East of town. There are also Oryx or Gemsbock out here but all of the land like the rest of the land in Texas is privately owned.

If you are a Solider, Airman, Marine and stationed here at Bliss you can hunt GMU 28 in New Mexico which is actually the northern part of Bliss at resident cost. There are elk, mule deer, Barbary sheep and Javelinas out there.

I signed up for all the hunts for big game on post this year but did not get any. However, I was contacted for a depredation hunt on the Bosque Del Apache game preserve in New Mexico and got a nice bull elk just twenty minutes after legal hunting hours started on the first day but I had to pay out-of-state license fee ($550.00). There are opportunities in El Paso, but you need to seek them out.

Respectfully,
Don

There is quite a bit to do actually but yes most land is private. Within 2 hours of El Paso there are Aoudad, Mule deer, pronghorn, elk,hogs, javelina, assorted birds and predators to start and that's just on the Texas side. www.westtexashuntorg.com

Eddie,

He is no trophy, not by a long shot, but I also did not pay $3,000.00+ to take him. Coming from Montana with loads of public land Texas takes a bit of getting used too. It boggles my mind that in a State this size there is hardly any public lands. I will be moving to the San Antonio area later next year (retirement) and it looks like I will need to either invest a large sum of money for land or travel to hunt. I do not want to pay $2,000 to $5,000 to harvest a trophy that seems ridiculous.

Respectfully,
Don
P.S. When do you sign into Bliss?

If you are into hunting birds, I have not had a bad day yet with Ducks, Dove, or Quail. All public hunting too.

Hey,
Hubcap I just arrived today lI actually sign in on the in December justas trying to get a feel for what out there, I do agree that with a state this size there should be allot more opportunities. Leaving Alaska it a night and day difference, earlier this year I was able to set up a bait stand for black bear on government land but here everything is outfitter ran, if thats the case I will oblige but its still weird to me.
