I'll be leaving Missouri in March and heading back to Texas. I am wondering if there is any good hunting around the Austin area? I 've seen some nice action up north, and of course south, and west Texas has some amazing predator hunting but what about central Texas?

If you're in the area, or have hunted the area and know where to find em, hit me up. I'd love to be your new hunting buddy.

You mentioned that there is good hunting in the north part of Texas. Can you tell me if Wichita County is much of a place as far as predator hunting (or hunting in general) goes? I will be in that area for a few months and was hoping to hit a jackpot of coyote and bobcat hunting. Any info you can provide is greatly appreciated.

The boys at UltimatePredator get a ton of cats up around Sherman, TX I think. Check out their site www.ultimatepredatortv.com or talk to Chris "UltimatePredator" on here.

Chris I am in Round Rock just on the north edge of Austin. There is some excellent grey fox, coyote and cat areas around Austin. The hard part is it is all privately owned and hard to get access to hunt. Leases are the norm and they bring high dollar. I do some calling in some parks and on some public land but just for the fun of it or pictures, no hunting or shooting allowed.

That's where we will be moving back to. My daughter went to Round Rock ISD while we were there. We stayed up off of 183 in Riata.

Is there no public land at all where we can hunt? We'll have to get together some time. I am as much into photography as I am into hunting. I don't mind putting the Nikon down on 'em.

Chris I sent you a PM a while back. just north of Austin is Ft Hood and it is 330 sq miles of hunting land for about $60 per year. I just started hunting it and have killed 1 dog so far there. after 9/1 the new season starts and dogs, fox and bobs are legal. shotguns only, lights cannot be attached to the vehicle. the country is really made for callers. I will be happy to get you started or take you out. MG

Heck yea there are lots of preds there. the problem is finding a place to hunt. be advised that it is a felony to carry a firearm on to private land while hunting if you dont own or lease the property in TX. as soon as you get there try the local chamber of commerce offices as the local ranchers usually list leases with them. some probably will let you hunt coyotes for nothing.

Gonna be in touch with all of you guys soon. Look forward to possibly getting together and putting some fur on the ground. Just got back from a 3 day trip to Northern MO which yielded nothing. Not even a single shot opportunity. I think I am going to focus more on getting to TX quicker and spend less time messing with the few dogs we have up this way. It's starting to bum me out a bit.

hey jason, we generally call from the ground and need to see at out a ways for a shot, although i have missed them at 2 yards! full camo, call into the wind or cross wind. buy a electronic call to get you going. have fun and dont shoot any german shepherds.
