With only a few weeks away, the season is just around the corner. If you’re not the early-bird already out there stalking with your bow, we’ve found some buck-fever inducing hunts for you.
So go ahead and pull the faded camo out of the bottom drawer, grab the sweat-stained hunting cap from the top of the closet, and start oiling up the ‘ol Remington, because it’s deer season!
If you’re looking for a place to go check out these top spots for Texas Whitetail Hunts:
1. South Texas
If you’re looking to hunt whitetail in Texas, the top choice for monster buck hunters has to be South Texas. Home to legendary ranches like King Ranch and delicious Tex-Mex, there’s no better place to pursue a B&C and cook up some venison tacos.
2. Central Texas
Only a short drive from Austin or San Antonio, this amazing landscape is host to big bucks, great BBQ, and friendly people. The Hill Country offers plenty of hunting opportunities from large land leases to fair-chase hunts.
3. West Texas
The western region of the Lone Star State is a hunter’s paradise. Home to the highest elevations in the state and the most unique hunting experiences. If you tag out on whitetail, the region also offers healthy mule deer hunts, sheep, and predator habitats.
4. East Texas
East Texas if full of big lakes, several national forests, and a ton of public hunting spots. The public aspect can make the hunting hard, but a ton of fun. The East Texas woods often reward the patient hunter that enjoys the chase!
5. North Texas and the Pan Handle
North Texas doesn’t always produce the exaggerated racks as some of the other parts of the region, but the prices and convenience more than make up for it. Venture a few hours from DFW, and you’ll find healthy honey holes for great hunting. Also, check out the “other” North Texas on some Pan Handle hunts.
6. The Coastal Plains
There are only a few places in the U.S. where you can catch an ice-chest-full of mackerel and bag a monster buck in the same weekend. If you have the energy, get some duck hunting plus fishing in on a blast-and-cast.
