Welcome to Texas SoCalHunter. I live over near Garland, which is east of you. You should really enjoy things here. And yes, things are more liberal here. I will keep my ears open on the lease. I already am on one that is full. Also keep an eye out for a JHO get together. Hopefully we can start getting in two per year if we are lucky. Check out www.deertexas.com Thats a pretty good reference for deer leases. Also, start researching county websites and city websites close to the areas you would like to hunt. Most should be posting their available leases soon. Deer texas does cost, but they have a good selection usually. I think Borderbandit uses them every once in awhile. Anyways, we may have to have a DFW JHO get together soon. Reddog is not too far. We could always meet at the Big Buck Brewery and steakhouse at Bass Pro in Grapevine one evening. Somthing to think about. Their are others in this area. Anyone interested in a get together here in the DFW area? Speak up and maybe we can arrange something.
