Hi all,
I am new to the forums but have lived in Texas (Austin area) for a little over 2 years now.
Glad to be part of the community.
Really getting sick of the lack of public land (save the backlash of comments) smile
Anyway, I'd like to gun hunt Luminant and maybe bring a hammock and sleep there this December sometime overnight (camping isn't "legally" allowed)
Wondering if anyone has done this or if it's not a big deal at all; do they turn a blind eye....etc
Trying to get info on this.....
Has anyone done this? Know of anyone that does this?

I'm originally from Wisconsin where your can hunt/camp wherever. I miss that....
Thanks in advance!

I believe Luminant, the energy company if that is the one your referring to, has several properties, including Comanche Peak; however, I don't think they allow hunting. Anytime you are "sneaking" in Texas, prepare to be shot or at least shot at. Be careful and double check the regulations.


How come everybody I meet is a deer hunting expert?

You must be joking. I really hope you are just trolling and not serious.

Not only would this be illegal, it would be horribly unethical to hunt on a property by "sneak camping."

I know for a fact there have been individuals prosecuted for hunting on Luminant Generation property. I'd drop this idea quick. I know of one particular case in which one poacher was bold enough to boat across Lake Granbury to hunt on the DeCordova power plant property.

He's talking about the WMA in Robertson County, #607. It's called Luminant in the book because apparently the Luminant company donated/leases the land.

I hunt there. I follow the rules. I expect everyone else to follow the rules too.

Camping isn't allowed?

Guess you better not do it, then.

I would look around. Lake Limestone isn't far from there. May be a camping area there at the lake or in the surrounding area. If not, there is a rest area just south of Marque on 79.

I guess one could always go back to Wisconsin if things aren't going well down here.

This post is ridiculous. That's like saying I'm going to "sneak camp" on a HF ranch down the road and do a little hunting when rifle season starts.

Your first post on the forum references breaking rules/laws. You got off lucky. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

I was wondering when someone would speak up. A public forum is not a good place to ask about breaking someone else's rules. There is enough hunting haters out there already, at least we can keep our integrity about us and be honest and follow rules and laws while we do what we love. If there are rules or laws, follow them. They are there for a reason.


If ducks had horns I'd probably be a duck hunter.
I am a horrible deer hunter. Probably the worst. Ever.

If you don't like the way we do it here, I-35 goes north, I-10 and I-20 go east and west. Pick one. If you'd like to follow the laws, you are welcome to stay.

I'm at Luminant 607 right now scouting for rifle season and seeing if I can pop a rabbit or two. When I was checking out one of my spots, a spike came walking into the area and spent around a minute 30-40 yards away from me. I have my .22, so I suppose I could have "sneak shot" him out of season. But I didn't.

Wouldn't have been legal in season either.
