I had posted about a lease we were checking out just outside of Columbus...
my brother lives in Houston and me in Austin, we have been looking all year for a lease that was reasonable, year round access and mutually convenient... I know, a lot to ask

I checked the place out last weekend and my brother was in Mexico on vacation with his wife.. I was doing the scouting, discussions with the landowner, etc.. also had a buddy of mine interested in joining as it was a 3 person lease..we are family friends, have kids the same ages, etc.. good stuff

Well, we met the landowner yesterday, took my brother, dad and my buddy John to check it out..

This is the first lease I have had and it was very nice to have my dad come visit the landowner and check the place out.. having his blessing on the place is very comforting as he's WAY more experienced than I am

We always had our own leases growing up... but good old Dad set them up and I just showed up and hunted....

it's actually a little bigger than first thought and had a nice stock tank on the back of the property with lots of water... in this drought that's a GOOD sign, and there's a little creek that runs through the place

We saw deer at 4 in the afternoon, another good sign
and it's a nice mixture of thick stuff and one big open pasture about 200 yards across

he also told us we can go over to his 1200 acres along the Colardo river which is about 10 minutes away that has a bunch of Pecan bottoms and lots of hogs... So, I think we may have struck gold

That does sound like you struck gold, that nice of a lease and water during the drought should bring a lot of game into the area.
good luck

Good deal!! Cheers

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

Awesome! Congrats on a great find!
A good rule of thumb with any lease is: does it have water running though the property 365 days a year??? If so, then you can pretty much guarantee that there will be game on the property. No water (or inconsistent water) = no critters...
