I've decided to stop throwing money at public hunting and spend some extra cash on a club or a lease.
But I am going to be a bit picky about it. I want something that I don't have to drive and hour to get to or that I have to leave at 3 am to get a spot. I have no problem using my decoys, calling myself, picking up my own birds, etc etc. What I want is a guaranteed spot with no drawing, where I don't have to pick up the decoys after every hunt. I want to have a place where the ducks get a chance to work, I love to see em work and on public land that just doesn't happen much. I also don't want to have to sell a lung to pay for this.
Am I being realistic? I realize I might have to lower my expectations to fit my budget and have no problem with that. How much should I be looking to spend? Any ideas about where to look? Should I be looking for a lease or are there clubs that would fit what I'm looking for? I'm in Williamson county so I'm assuming that the history here alone are going to keep prices high, any suggestions?
