The season vastly approaches! Who's excited? Anybody running trail cameras and getting some nice footage?

I found a new spot this weekend, about a mile in. Lots of old rubs and fresh sign. Bumped about 3-4 does on the edge of a bedding area. Come on October!

No, you don't need a permit to hunt LBJ or Caddo grasslands.

Not quite true. On the LBJ you only need a hunting license.

On the Caddo N.G. there are three units. The Bois D'Arc and Ladonia Units are WMAs. You need the APH permit to hunt those areas.

The Fannin Unit does not require the APH permit. It is archery only for deer and hogs.

Keep us posted how it is out there. I probably won't get out until around the 20th, but I was thinking of checking out that area

Default LBJ today

No dove today, just a lot of walking, found some promising stand locations. A couple of old stands (ladder and climber).

Is there a RV park on 730 north of Decatur? Decent park, wife/pets etc? Up around 50/70/66/67/68/53/60 etc?

Anyone know what the attached are? Lots of PVC driven into the ground, what I thought at first was a bround blind, or feeder. Bets I can tell something to do with the oak pests.

A Plus RV Park

Here's where I would recommend. Small, family owned on the north side of Unit 32. A couple of members on here keep their campers there

There's camping at Blackcreek lake. Was $3 day on an honor system last I was there. No running water or electric. But has restrooms, and picnic tables at campsites. View of the lake is kinda scenic with the pines in the backdrop. There are a couple of shaded areas. And some camp sights in the sun for late season camping. There is also a hiking trail very close by that you can walk to from the campgrounds. It has up to 30 miles of trails if I remember right.

Thanks for the info on the parks.

TG, there hasn't been many areas on the fed land that I would want to try to get a 34' 5th wheel with 4 slides. If I go on my own I'll tent camp it- but if the queen goes along it needs full hookups- she aint using one of the bathrooms.

I think there's room to get that thing in there and out with out a problem. But the full hook-ups are a different story . I didn't know if your trailer was fully self contained or not.

I didn't hunt lbj last season except for opening day for archery season because I had a lease in Arkansas. Work has prevented me from keeping my lease, so I'm going to hit lbj. I used to be able to go a lot during the week, but my new job will only allow me to be a weekend warrior

you need to download ARCGIS explorer on your phone. I have found these maps very accurate while using the GPS on my phone. Download the Caddo-LBJ grasslands map. I can give more direction if needed. It is the standard app for goverment maps.

I have that for the Lake Lewisville area, but the search function is not finding Caddo or LBJ. Any other way to look for maps?

Good. That in conjunction with the lot number map on the lbj grassland page is all you need. I use the lot number mail to make notes on what I found at each one that may be useful to be whether it be for deer, hogs, frogs, bowfishing, etc
