Hello, I am trying to find public hunting land near the Lewisville/Dallas area. I primarily hunt small game and deer. Anyone know of any places?

Look at COE properties also look in the public lands section of this forum


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Both Lake Lewisville and Grapevine Lake have public hunting land.

you might want to check out Cooper or Pat mayse if you are a bow hunter. Caddo grasslands is so a spot you can check out.

What all do I need legally to hunt on Lewisville? I have my hunters education, just need a hunting license, and what else? Primarily going to hunt squirrels/rabbits and possibly hogs there.

They give out general hunting permits on August so youíll have to wait till next year, they only give out a certain amount

Do the permits only apply to Lewisville?

I believe so. Lake Grapevine is the same way. You have to go to the office and get a permit before the season. There usually only give out 200 or so permits so be quick or they will be gone.

Sorry to bump an old topic, and thank yíall for all the helpful replies. Iím thinking of trying my luck sometime before I leave home at LBJ, but I know nothing about it and canít find anything online about details for hunting. All I need is a hunting license, and no APH? Seasons/regulations on how to take hogs? Etc.

No APH required. I believe archery or shotgun only. I think you can take a hog whenever.
