Shooting in Texas

Post by VeTTeMaNC486 » 25 May 2016, 16:07

Quick question, are there public lands or anything of the sort to go shooting at in Texas? Kind of like in nutnfancy's videos... I grew up in South Carolina with pretty much no sort of arrangement to my knowledge. I will be moving to the Del Rio area for a lil' over a year and will have some time to kill, at least until October.

Texas does not have any federally owned public land. There may be some state owned land, but for the most part it is vast swaths of private land.

Yes, that is largely true here in Texas.

This is unfortunate and quite surprising. Hopefully that changes someday.

Er, it's quite fortunate that our land is privately held and generates revenue to pay for the minimal public services we get from state government. Not very surprising since we set out to settle the state and take it away from the Mexicans and Indians, we'd hardly give a lot to the Federal government. Hopefully it never changes.

There is Federal land, primarily Corps of Engineers water supply reservoirs, on which one can hunt, primarily with shotguns. There's also, depending on year, up to a million acres of state public hunting land, which adds $40/year to one's hunting license. You can shoot on it, but it's set up for hunting.
