Re: Looking for experienced backpacker/hunter in TX
To hunt in TX you basically have to know someone who has land and will let you hunt on it, rent a deer lease or get a guide. There is hardly any public land here in Texas. To get the experience and "tips-n-tricks" you're looking for, hiring a guide might be your best bet. Go to the Rod and Gun club on Ft. Hood and see what they have to offer. At a minimum they'll offer the TX Hunters Safety Course.
I'm only a couple of hours away from Ft. Hood and know/work with several guides. PM me and we can talk more.
Stay safe over there!
