I got my lease!
found a small place just outside of Columbus and will be hunting with my brother and a close friend, just the 3 of us
1500 a gun, year round access
hasn't been hunted on in 25 years and the owner owns 10K acres, this is just a small piece and the adjacent property doesn't get hunted on
no guests outside of the camp area during deer season
my son can be with me but one has to be the designated hunter
I offered it to him but he wants HOGS, he's 12 and has shot 3 deer but no hogs
We will be setting up a small trailer and 3 stands and feeders
I don't like hunting deer over a feeder but it draws them into the property and frankly, I am more interested in killing hogs!
I would rather hunt elsewhere, up north around Goldwaithe, Brady, etc.. but my brother lives in Houston and this place is convenient for both of us..
I remember hunting with my dad, brother and uncles as the best times of my life...
I want that for my kids too..
Refugio is a great area!
I shot this one there a few years ago
and my dad from the same area in the late 60s/early 70s
