Someone sent me a location in Sam Houston Forest but my message box was wiped by system or during password reset.
I remember it was a trail head.

The area of the Sam Houston National Forest near Lake Livingston (specifically around Coldspring) can be decent.

Yes the SAM Houston is way worth the hunt. We deer hunt around cold springs and shepherd area it’s loaded with cat squirrels and few fox squirrels as well. Be sure to wear your orange.

There are a few spots at the SHNF that are excellent. Exactly where those spots are is a secret that if I told you, would ruin the spot and cause a few people to really hate me. Half the fun of it is exploring and finding those spots for yourself.

Good luck!
