Default Hunt at your work?

Is anybody able to hunt where you work?
I work at a chemical plant in Pasadena and they just allowed us to start bow hunting on the additional acreage of the property not used. Pretty exciting, Iíve seen some good deer in this area!

I asked for permission to several years ago when we bought some new park land but was shot down pretty quickly.

We had fifty three acres around the plant east of San Angelo. I used to get on top of the storage tanks with my 270 after work. I never did any good but I think there were six deer taken off of that place one year.

We have hundreds of acres of brush/woods inside our plant and some 150 class deer. But they will not let us hunt. Worst part of it all is the hogs. Enough of 'em they got up into the plant digging up stuff. They won't admit it but security shoots them and dumps the carcasses in the landfill. "May be contaminated"!

Our previous plant manager would let a guy bow hunt behind the plant. The new plant manager wouldn't even let me put out a hog trap a few years ago. He does encourage me to trap armadillos when they start tearing up the flower beds though. Lol

I dont work there, i have heard that, NASA has a private contractor come and dispose of deer when they get over populated. They are always getting hit on Red Bluff. They also have a refuge for the Atwater prairie chickens.

We're allowed to hunt our work property. It's around 1200 acres divided up into 6 areas with feeders and blinds. It is MLD and we do a random drawing and get a week at a time. I'll get to hunt it about 4 weeks this year. This year we are really focusing on management and have made shoot and don't shoot lists. If people will follow the program, we should have some pretty decent deer in a couple of years.

Yeah, OG, I agree that they should make you punch a doe tag first before a buck.

Yes, been fortunate enough to take 3 nice bucks the last few years. Bow hunting only for deer. Bow or shotgun in the off season for hogs.
