The TPWD often references the different geographic regions of Texas when providing information to hunters and others who enjoy the outdoors. Here's a good map that identifies them for those who may not be familiar with the designations.

Pretty accurate map too


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Thanks Dan. Some give you a hard time, but it rarely hurts to give out some good basic info.


Keep your gratitude higher than your expectations. RWH

And lots of overlap from one region to the next. It's not cut and dry. Pines in the oaks, oaks in the prairies...


One shot is all it should take.

I found it interesting it shows the somewhat narrow strip of pines that extends SW from East Texas into areas where they're commonly called "Lost Pines".

Cool! I love maps.

Best thing is a map showing where to get great weed.

Yes, Bastrop and Fayette counties to name a couple.

Really interesting how the blackland straddles post oak and how the rolling plains encircles some edwards plateau and some high plains. I can certainly identify the regions generally, but I wonder how they work out the precise borders? Soil? Fauna? Geological features? It is interesting when you're right in those transition zones and can really see/feel both.

I didn’t realize the blackland went that far south, if you’ve never been stuck in blackland then you’ve never truly been stuck roflmao

That ain't no joke. Stuck my 3/4 ton SRW up to the frame once in chocolate pudding. So glad I'm not on that hunting lease anymore

Oh believe me.....East Texas 'Red Clay' is easily its equal. But yes....I've been stuck in bottomless blackland mud too.

I can't believe that hasn't been called racist yet, with the "woke" crowd demanding it's name changed. roflmao

We have land with both and red clay is child’s play LOL, get ahold of some freshly plowed black with corn stubble after a soaking inch of rain. You will be praying for some slick red clay rofl that stuff will gum up in your fender wells locking down the tires from turning. I can’t count how many times we had to leave trucks and equipment stuck in a field for weeks at a time. It makes for some good crops but anything other then that it’s worthless.

We have a little of all three here in Howard County, shame we don't have any deer.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

It's very noticeable in the farmland around San Marcos.

Clay (red iron ore dirt) will do the same thing....it is anything but slick. It will fill up tire treads (ANY) in nothing flat and just keep building up until your wheel well, rims and everything are packed. Black dirt isn't the only thing that does that.

I turned around here after going only about 50' on a hard ranch road after a slight rain. Didn't even get to the good stuff yet. I know better. I have lockers front and rear and a winch...but it just isn't worth it. I've been in some black gumbo East of Austin (Hutto/Taylor farmland) that had soil with no bottom in it when really wet and sticky (with chopped maize stems in it) before. And nothing to winch to. Not fun.
