Believe it or not there is Public hunting opportunities in Texas.  In this episode I share my experiences hunting on various public lands located in South Texas. I talk about both small game and big game opportunities.  Each property is described in detail and I explain the Texas public hunt draw system. I also share one of my favorite hunting stories, my first Nilgai bull harvested on these public lands, taken with a shotgun!
