I am curious if anyone plans to hunt public land for the spring season. I have been calling TPW for the last couple of weeks and have talked to about everyone from Dickinson to Austin and multiple WMAs and haven't got any good leads. Most WMA's that allow turkey hunting are closed down for "repopulation efforts". Anyone know a management area that is allowing hunts? I live in Houston so the closer the better but I am willing to travel
From what I heard, Houston and Crockett National Forests used to be open for turkey hunting, but the Eastern subspecies has always been marginal in Texas as far as population numbers go (hence a season limit of 1 bird, vs. 4 Rio Grandes in areas where they occur).
