I don't know if I started a thread about this but know I mentioned this in a couple of threads. Campbell is starting to post tracts on their website for bid- www.cglease.com. They currently have 28 tracts up for bid in Texas right now and some in other states also. Good way to get a lease with little or no landowner interference and at a lower price than you will probably have to pay for privately owned land. There is no sense getting into the negatives of hunting east Texas- they have been discussed ad nauseum on many websites but I have leased from them for the last seven years with little to no problems- I currently have three tracts leased from them and am looking at some others to bid on.
