Default One lease spot available Comfort,Tx

We have one spot available on our lease of 1300 acres. It's a pretty laid back atmosphere, but the two biggest rules that some people may not like is, no guests and no bow hunting. 2,000 per gun. If anyone is interested, my dad will be handling this so give him a call at 512-484-1179. calls only, he doesn't text.

Yeah, I know it's kind of a lot to type and my dad just wanted to explain things over the phone. Here's a small run down. Yes it is covered in axis and a small population of black buck. The landowner's family has been leasing to hunters since 1930 and the rules have not changed. You are allowed two bucks, one of which may be an axis. No does, I know but it's his rules. Unlimited hogs, we have plenty. No turkey hunting. We share a primitive remote cabin, landowner trucks in water and we use a generator for power.

Oh and we run seven hunters. The landowner gave us more land this year so we need another hunter. Everyone that hunted last year is staying on.

Year round access? Predator / Hog Hunting at night during the off-season? Also, I may have missed it but where is this place at?

I don't think predator hunting at night would be allowed even during the offseason. The rancher likes to keep things fairly quiet so the exotics stay on his ranch. You might be able to bring a guest during the offseason, but that would be up to the landowner on a case by case basis. We have an outhouse and a primitive shower and bunk beds. My wife would kill me if I took her there for a weekend. This would be good spot for a single guy that doesn't mind sharing a small primitive cabin with six other guys.

Just spoke with him, paid hunters only, no guest. Due to the size of the cabin and the Landowners rules. Man if it wasn't for that I be all over it

We picked up the extra acres because the other guys got caught with a bunch of extra people and they were told to leave. So the no guest rule is pretty solid this year.

Amen to that!
If I could bring my dad every now and then I would’ve snagged it.

But understandable with the Guest Mistake Stories thread that’s a million pages long lol

Did you verify the "no does"? Never seen a lease where you can't shoot does. What's the purpose of have access to Axis if you can't shoot does?

Truck for sale. 99' Chevy 1500 4x4. 100K miles. Single cab. Works great. Everything stock. See pics. $2,000 firm.



No lift kit? Wow. Late 90s sit too low for my taste.

Stock tires? No mudders?

Is maroon the only color they had?

Single cab? Most buyers have kids or need to carry hunting gear inside. Little cramped don't you think?

I promise it's no does. The landowner is 76 years old and a very nice man. His grandfather started the no does rule in 1930. His father kept the rule in place and now he's staying with it too. His place, his rules. I do think some does need to be taken off the place, but it's not a deal breaker for me. One weekend axis hunt would cost more than this lease.

It’s that old don’t shoot my breeders. That was the big thing back in the day.

But like you said, his ranch his rules. Great area to hunt and loaded with animals. Good luck and I guarantee you’ll find someone quick.

I live in Comfort and I'd love to be on this place. I can shoot all the does I want at my 20 acres. So the axis bucks would be what I'm interested in. But I'd like to bowhunt or take the kid there, so that's the only reasons I'm out. There are some big free ranging Axis out around Comfort. Still interested in where this place is in relation to town

No travel trailers or rv's as they would not survive the trek to the camping area. It's a 20 minute drive from the gate to camp house. 4x4 required.

Good country right there. Tons of axis in that area. I don’t live far from Cypress Creek Rd (FM 1341). I shot this one crossing my place. We drive that road to town and see deer and Axis every time.

Who said “no bow” & “no kids”?

I stood face to face & shook the rancher’s hand yesterday and assure you none of that is true....

FYI sometimes ya gotta put in a little work and/or a little do a little sweet talking...James was just putting us all on a lead, a foot in the door if you will, and the rest is up to us...

Right now I owe James a steak dinner & some axis meat lol...

Well uh, The original post. Clearly states “Two rules... no bow, no guests.” Good for you to get those changed unless the LO just said what he needed to get your money. Hope it all works out for ya

I live just down the road and was looking @ this place, someone is pulling someone's chain , with all those changes the land owner is a very old man , and maybe got confused dealing with crazyhorse
I hope it works out
