Hey guys, so im starting to get my son into the hunting life and trying to find a place to take him to start off on small game like rabbits and squirrels. Can anyone recommend any close places to alvin or if anyone has some land they would be willing to let me pay a small fee to take him out every now and then. He has been watching videos on hunting rabbits and squirrels and been begging me to take him out to learn to shoot and teach him how to dress them as well. Any info would be greatly appreciated guys.

If I lived in the Houston area and wanted to Squirrel hunt, I would pick up a permit for the closest Big Thicket unit. Historically those areas used to be more popular for Squirrel hunting than Deer hunting.

Sam Houston NF really isn't bad outside of opening weekends. I'm off during the week, so I go then. I never see anyone.

Here's Nannie Stringfellow, pretty close to Alvin.
But I haven't been there myself.


Only one way to find out.

You will enjoy squirrel hunting at Nannie Stringfellow but it aint easy. Do some research on how to get em before you go.

It can be really productive too if you hunt the right spot.

Nice mix of grays and foxes. I still haven't learned to hunt it right!

scratch squirrels will make a person believe in shapedhifters ...
Many a times would set up un area full of fresh deer sign, only for a squirrel ta show up & start barking... Warning the deer of presemt danger...
confused2 could explain the absents of squash sightings... flag

That is my problem too. I can't find them when I want to and they won't leave me alone when I want them to.
