anyone in the north texas area offer a DIY planted bird hunt? Quail, pheasant, chukar?

wanting to keep the cost down and get a new bird dog some training/experience.

Just kinda looking for a place to buy some birds, has a small section of land i can go out and plant them in and then get the dog out and have some fun for a few hours.

no need for a guide, no need for a in field lunch, or any frills like that.

Buy birds and take them out to the LBJ Grasslands
As long as you are not on the designated Birddog Training Area, and you do not shoot more than a legal daily limit, you should be good to go.

Wondering if it's legal to release birds on public land.? Not sure I would go that route, wouldn't be legal on federal land up here.

Look at pecan ridge outdoor training center and give ross a call over there.

Its like 125 a year for dog training access. It is considered a game preserve and ross will usually leave birds in a box waiting for your pickup.

Let me know if you decide to join I can meet you out there one day. There are a few of us who train out there.

Lots of misinformation here.
You cannot release pen raised birds on public land legally period. State or national.
You must have a TPWD private shooting preserve permit.
You must buy your birds from a TPWD approved producer.
All birds you release must have a band on them with your private preserve number on the band.
You must have a TPWD shooting preserve sign at every gate on a public road on your property.

I have a friend that is going through this now. He also thought you just went and bought some chukars and quail and put them out. Not so.

I kept pen raised quail in my Johnny house for training for over 20. I released them in the late spring. Some went feral. Had one clutch. This is one from my Johnny house. I never shot any. They were too previous after they learned to recall.
