Anyone had any luck spring Turkey hunting on public in Texas at all? I’m thinking about trying but I have very little confidence in public land in Texas.

Edit: just to clarify I mean with just the APH. Have you had success purchasing APH, finding an open unit that allows Turkey hunting, and going. Not draw hunts where select few are hunting.

I shot one at LBJ Grasslands about 30 years ago. It was in the fall and I was trudging around hoping to jump a covey of quail.( I was a young man then and could walk for miles LOL). Came across a group of turkeys and played cat and mouse stalking them for about 30 minutes. Finally got a decent shot opportunity and killed one. It was either a small gobbler or bearded hen, dont remember which one it was.

About 20 years ago I was sitting in a treestand at Pat Mayse WMA hunting deer during bow season and a group of about 6 gobblers came strolling down the holler. BIG black birds! I think eastern birds are bigger than Rios. Sure was purdy to watch them easing down the holler.
