I just found out last week that I'm being relocated to Houston, TX for work. I started out in Louisiana, and then they moved me north to New Jersey, and Houston is the third stop along the way. I've been fortunate enough to duck hunt in all of the places they have moved me. I don't know how true this is, which is why I figured this forum is the best place to ask the question. Everyone always says "Everything in Texas is private, you have to get a lease." I've always scouted and hunted public land and don't have the slightest clue as to where to begin on finding a lease. So here are my two questions:
1) Is public land really that scarce for waterfowl hunting in Texas?
2) If so, any ideas on where to begin on getting into a lease?
I prefer hunting public land and have a surface drive motor on my boat to help get around, but if a lease is the way to go, I wanted to start looking now.
Thanks for all of the help.
