Pheasant hunting is where it's at.

Had a highfalutin buddy back in MS that would take me hunting at his "club". Of course I or "guests" weren't allowed to shoot a buck. Guess what? All I saw were bucks! Fthatclub! Did have a good time drinking and eating...

Not on a lease this year, first time in 20 years, but I love to sit in a blind all day, grab a soft sided cooler full of beer, a large empty plastic gallon jug, I phone, ear buds, my favorite play list and some snacks, when the Rut is on it's freaking amazing, I just love it.

Most of the deer hunting I've seen in Texas is a transnational matter. You show up. You sit. You wait for the deer to show up at the feeder like they always do. You shoot a deer. Odds of success, almost 100%.

In the north you're usually in a tree stand over a food plot. Gun season in many states is VERY short. In Wisconsin it's 9 days. Most serious hunters bow hunt otherwise the season would be short. Odds are decent if you just want meat and are okay with taking a doe. Bucks are another matter. A lot of guys I know will sit 30+ times a season hoping for a single chance at a decent buck. No drinking or smoking when you're dangling from a tree trying to shoot an ultra alert animal at 20-30 yards with an arrow.

I just like sitting in the blind and watching, anymore. I let the others shoot and then I just sit back and watch them sweat. Hunting shouldn't be a rigorous exercise. Gutting deer is too much work for me....


Happy Holidays from our house to yours.....

We are trying to fill 3-4 spots for a European pheasant hunt right now, Bob. It's like shooting chickens, you want in?

In the mornings I'm in the blind well before dark. I take a thermos of coffee and my gun, maybe my camera and binos. No cell service in the canyon I hunt so I sit there in the dark waiting to see shadows moving across the creek. I can see auodads on the cliff, turkeys, deer, hogs, bobcats, coyotes, hawks and owls. Last year I saw a heron get attacked by turkeys. Doesn't get much better than that. I didn't even pull the trigger last year actually - just paid for the lease and corn and protein to watch animals.

In the evenings I pack an ice chest of beer and get hammered.

I just like to get out and find a cool spot to sit. Maybe build a little blind out of the sticks and weeds/shrubs.

But if I have a specific piece of land I hunt regularly, I'll hang a stand or put up a legit blind

I think it's $75 for a 5 day, I don't know if they have anything less than that. It's crazy what every states nonresident licenses are now, when we were kids we deer hunted Fort Chaffee in Arkansas for I think it was $15 for a nonresident license and $10 for the tag.
I'll let you know the details when I get them.
