Nope but I have hunted the Briscoe Catarina and the Cochina ranches. I'll be on the Catarina again this coming February killing hogs.

The owner of the ranch I hunt on has worked for the briscoe family his whole life. His father worked for the briscoes as well. They have hundreds of thousands of acres around texas. Everyone piece of property I am aware of has good deer. If you get a good lease manager, briscoe properties are good to hunt.

The lease we had was low fence,hunted about 10 years on that lease,had a lot of deer,hogs ,turkey and some axis,the last couple years it was tough to see a doe,our lease and others around us wasn't having much luck are seeing much,new lease manager doubled the price and new rules to where about all we could do was right them a check ( no more spring turkey,no dove hunting,no swimming in our swimming hole,had to call before you come,picture of deer before you shoot,etc. etc) so our group let it go,a couple of guys had hunted that lease for over 40 years ,this was in 2012. We bought a place after this.

Might not be all on the lease manager. Chip Briscoe has laid down some new rules. At least he has on the Catarina and Cochinas. One of the new rules is no AR15 platforms.

I leased a pasture on the Mason ranch back in the 80s, 1702 acs. It was a rocky mostly cedar covered place. Small deer and not alot of them, few turkey & javelina. Might be better now days ?

Just depends on where and what pasture your in. The Briscoe ranches are the second larges in Texas. Some where around 555,000 ac. I have hunted the Catarina and Cochinas and have seen some great deer. It has really changed a LOT over the last 10+ years when the gas drilling started. I know when we are at the Catarina it takes 45 min. driving to get to the far south pasture. John (I can't remember his last name) runs all the hunting operations for the Briscoe's. Muzzlebreak is right Chip Briscoe has put in a lot of new rules.

Everyone keeps bringing that up, but it really hasnít affected us. It just gives a bunch of roads to get all over the ranch even when itís wet

Ya he got off after the first year they really started over there, I hunted it before and after and while it might be settling down now it wasn't that way a few years back. they literally build a pond two football fields in size 50 yds from one of our tower blinds and feeder. We didn't see any deer there anymore. The worst part back then was the traffic it was like a highway no joke.

Anyway I am sure now that all the holes have been punched the traffic has subsided.

Yeah that would happen to us too, we would just shut that stand down for the year or move it a little and everything would go back to normal. And the highway part is no joke, it was constant but our deer got use to it and they were usually pretty good about getting out of our pastures during deer season or st least a certain time. Traffic isnít bad at all this year, during the off-season they were but not so much now

No they don’t work to late at our place, they’re suppose to be off and out of the gate by 3. And no across the street right pass the strumberg on the low fence stuff

Don’t get me wrong, they still run trucks and stuff all day and night but it’s not what it once was and there’s not much drilling going on right now and they usually try not to drill wells during deer season it seems
