All you need is a hunting license. Read up on the rules out there and get a map from the office.

At one time you needed a doe permit.

I was thinking of going out there myself this year. I always had private land to hunt on as a kid. I just took the hunter education course and there was someone that told me you had to have a permit to hunt public land. This is the link for the Annual Public Hunting Permit. I could be wrong...the guy above said he called and I haven't called to confirm anything. Would just hate to get out there and get fined without it.

http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild/hunt/public/annual_public_hunting/

Another link explaining the requirement for this permit to hunt deer. But, it does not list the LBJ Grasslands so I am assuming you don't need.

Another link on the Caddo-LBJ Grasslands website explaining the requirement for this permit to hunt deer.

http://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/texas/recreation/hunting



There is all types of public land in Texas...You only have to have the $48.00 permit to hunt hunt Type 2/WMA land. The national forest & grassland are usually free and don't require a permit except for those areas leased by TPWD that are now WMA's like Caddo ntl grasslands, Ham Houston ntl forest, and parts of Davy Crockett (Alazan Bayou WMA), Angelina Ntl forest (Bannister WMA) and Sabine Ntl forest (Moore Plantation WMA).

All other parts of those last 3 national forest listed and all of the LBJ grasslands are free to hunt. There are also a lot of COE lands that is free like the areas around lakes Whitney and Aquilla (free permit) and all over east TX.

I killed my best turkey to date up in the LBJ grasslands....

Just be prepared to weather the flood of hunters you will know doubt be hunting with. In all seriousnessthe only time I would hunt lbj is during the week. Also keep in mind if you are deer hunting, ANY pond or laqke up there is gonna have duckhunters. Definately be safe and where hunter orange. I'm not trying to scare you off of hunting up there but when gun deer season opens its a zoo on the weekends.

We've hunted out there the last few years on one of the areas away from the "main" areas. Not to crowded at all. Just have to pick your area and get there early. If there were people there we would communicate before we all went out so we would know where everyone was. Lots of deer. Usually they have a week or weekend where you can take a doe. Other than that it's buck only. Only problem I had was finding a "legal" buck.

Do you guys think LBJ or Caddo Nat'l Grasslands is a better place for deer? I know they are close together, so I guess maybe they have similar deer (and hunter) populations.

LBJ, stay away from the lakes.


Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.

I have hunted there many times and seen few hunters. There is so much land there that you can get away from everyone else and not to many hunt it on Sundays.


Born to hunt and fish.

From my experience the lbj and caddo are not close. You might want to look at a big map

Quick question, Shotgun only? On a smoothbore are you using slugs or Buckshot?
