If you're on or near one of the creeks you'll have better luck than without.
NW of town will be fairly bleak, east, south, north & north east much better.
In that area it doesn't take a lot of cover to have good luck. Hunt near the densest cover/travel paths.
The more acreage per hunter the better, there are quite a few small leases all over Young county, in those areas hunting can be almost impossible.
My ranch HQ is about 25+/- SE of there, I'm familiar with the area around Megargel.
