Hey guys. After 5 or more years of concentrating on offshore fishing (no, not giving it up) I thought it time to get back to deer hunting since my oldest son is getting that age and it's time to enjoy some father/son hunting experiences.
I've never hunted this area of the state (North Texas) having grown up in S. Texas and allways hunting down there.
I looked for a family lease within a couple of hours of D/FW and found this one. It is in Young County near Loving. It is a small place (100 acres) but that's all I need as it is just for me and my two boys, one of which won't be old enough to hunt for a few years yet. It currently has 3 blinds, couple of hills, a stock tank (channel cat and bass), and a 15 acre food plot.
How is this general area in terms of productivity, deer quality, hunting pressure, etc.?
I know it's been pretty productive for the previous hunters and is currently crawling with hogs...has deer, turkey, hogs and dove. It will be a year round lease to allow me to hunt the above, teach the boys to shoot and hunt, do some bass fishing (that tank has some 5lb'rs and better), some camping, etc.
Also, what would a typical year round lease 100 acres or so in size in this area with 3 blinds lease for on a year round basis?
