In-laws have a family ranch in that area. They don't hunt, but said they know there are some exotics out there. I assume some axis and maybe some aoudad. Anything else in that area worth hunting? How is the deer population?

Also Red Deer, a variety of wild/feral sheep or goats, and whatever else is stocked on HF ranches that have escaped after storms and lot of rain to wash out fences.

I've never hunted there but floated the river several times. Our friends place has tons of nice axis. We even saw a black bear one year.

I normally wouldn't even chime in on this... But it sounded pretty insulting, so here I am. The Frio is what runs through Leakey, Concan, etc.... The Nueces runs through Camp Wood. You would know that if you know so much about that country.

Where does the Nueces run through Leakey? We go every 4th of July to Leakey and stay on the frio. We have driven over to Campwood to see the Nueces but that was a good 30 minute drive west.

I concur, Nueces runs down the western side of Real county, through Camp Wood and southward and Frio is on the eastern side of Real county through Leakey and Concan...Right county just different towns flowed through...
