Good morning everyone. I wanted to reach out and seek advise for my first hunt. I have had the itch for a few years now and want to make it happen this year. I would like to hunt public land near San Antonio. Any ideas or advise would be greatly appreciated! I also have a travel trailer i would like to take if this is possible.

Welcome, get ready for one hell of an addiction. What are you looking to hunt? Have you gotten your hunters education done yet? If not, that would be step 1. Here's a link to the Texas Parks and Wildlife website showing your options -

Welcome Craigew85! There are several options for public land that you can choose from, depending on what you want to hunt. Look at the TPWD public hunting website. Also there are other public hunting opportunities. PM me if you want to go into those. As said above, Unless you were born before 1971, you will need to complete hunter's safety or purchase a deferral.

Good luck!

welcome ta texasHF
Some good info from the others... Public hunting is the cheapest way ta go if ya dont have family or friends with place ta hunt...
weather it be using archery, or guns it can get spendy with that alone, getting familiar with weapon of choice...
My first deer rifle was a Kentucky .45... Its Old school same with archery first shot gotta make it count... Lot of old time hunters single shot...
with black powder you learn the value ofmaintanaince,...
Then theirs the cost of driving distance ta place open for hunting & the expences that go with that...
Spend time on this forum reading the Topic's in the various forums...
rofl as pappy say's : Can be tough seperating the bs from the rest of the crap...
Thar B some very good info... While most have me on thar Top of the ignorance list, each has thar own opinion, & tis a hunting forum...
A rifle - bow tis only as good as the jerk behind the trigger.. just my 2cents
pappy

Best wish's
Keep your head held high & your powder dry...
