pattern doesn't matter as long as you brush it in as much as possible. When you think it is brushed in enough, brush it some more. They still may be a little jumpy about it out there.

No. LBJ no permit needed from LBJ, but I think you need the $48 public hunting permit.

Anyone else chime in???

There are 4 types of public lands in Texas. Three are lands run by federal agencies. Some of those federal agencies work very closely with TP&W. Some do not. LBJ is run by the U.S. Forestry Service. Some of the forestry service lands are managed by TP&W. But LBJ is not one of them. TP&W just helps enforce the law there, as do the Federal Forestry agents like Rangers and US Fish and Wildlife Wardens. That is the only thing TP&W dose at/with LBJ. LBJ also has it's own hunting program and rules.

No matter what type of public lands you chose to hunt, be sure you know the rules for that land. Some vary by location and do not have a blanket set of rules. Or a blanket set of rules for the state. But most follow the state bag limits or have their own of lessor limits. Or even some "off limits".

The LBJ is not a Texas Wildlife Management Are (WMA). You can call the office and order a map and they will send you a copy of the regulations. It's best to stop by the office and ask lots of questions.

No kidding. The borders of each unit being clearly marked is fine and all, but I wish they would start putting little icons on where good bucks are standing so I don't have to guess.

If anybody is heading out to LBJ or Caddo and wants some company or needs help with anything pm me. I would love to have someone familiar with hunting in Texas to get up to speed with. I am NOT trying to horn in on your favorite spots or anything like that. I just feel like hunting here in Texas is going to be a lot different than the farmland and hardwood forests of PA I am used to hunting. So having a mentor so to speak, could be helpful. I will gladly pay for lunch/dinner/beers whatever, for any advice .

This area seems like it will be the closest public land to me so unless I can find a lease public land will have to give me my bowhunting fix.
