Default Milam County Lease




I donít currently have a subscription to lease hunter to see the contact info. But if someone does and is interested in this lease, Iíd be interested in 2-3 spots of the 7.

I just canít get a group together that large right now and heís looking for one group. Reasonable price for the area, sounds like a good place with river frontage, house, and barn. And management seems to be in line with how I hunt: conservative and patient.

Let me know!!

Yes, why? $2800/hunter. That's not that much.

Milam county along the river can produce some good deer.

7 people on 1000 acres is a lot IMO but with the cabin and price being knocked down around 2800$ a gun its not awful. COuld be a blast with the right group.

Hope it works out and that you end up on it this year

OK...I hunt Milam county and while I think 7 on 1000 acres is high I was thinking 4 max..and $5k is high for that area....

But to each his own...

We hunt 600 acres in Milam county with just 2 of us

It's probably too many hunters for each of them to harvest a trophy each year (it is), but they could probably expect to take 3-4 nice bucks, some culls, a bunch of does, and tons of hogs. Good fishing on the river with 1000 acres to play with and $2800 for full access year-round is probably about right.

It's not a great deal but it's not a ripoff. Anyhow, if it doesn't lease they'll figure it out.

Not real familiar with the Wilderville, Briary, Baileyville to Crossroads area west of the river, but have friends that hunt a little north of this area and they have killed some great animals. The stretch from Reagon to Marlin along the Brazos River drainage areas and the Big Creek area have produced multiple slap yourself bucks in the last 5 years.

It would take the right group of 7 unselfish hunters to make 1000 acres work in that area, and have plenty of hog arrows......

Hope it works out for OP.

Too many hunters, but that area holds some very good deer.

That is 13 miles due north of me and straight up county road 259. The other side of the river is an 11,000 acre farm. There are several high fences in the area but most are 300 - 400 acres. There is also a wildlife management group on 259. A word of caution - the 259 area is one of the most poached areas between Milam, Robertson, and Falls counties. It is easy to see why.
