Default 3point hunting club?

Does anyone have any info on them? They are located in East Texas near Pineland. They have a website but I'd like to hear from TBHer's if anyone has any knowledge of them.

Just got back from lease. Alot of things have changed for this next year so alot was going on. So just wanted to let you know that the lease is a good lease with alot of potential. This next year we are going to 4.5yr old min. so it will be tough. But I have already passed on some 3.5's that will be hosses this next year and I may let them go next year it just depends. So if you are looking to get on a up and coming trophy lease then this is a good one. But just like I said it is a trophy lease not a just shoot a buck lease. The lease has some great elevation changes and all the things the deer need to hold them on the lease. I'm sure you will be impressed. I'm not sure of spots tho so you will have to check with them. Well managed in my opinion.

I agree with Rags, lots of potential. I am real glad that they bumped the min age up to 4.5 from 3.5. If everyone plays along there will be some nice deer on this place - already some quality deer on there.

The pricing structure has changed but it is still a value for what you get.

I was a little overwhelmed with all the rules when I first joined (last year) but pretty much agree with all of them now. Running a place that big with that much freedom needs some pretty tight parameters to keep everything in control.

There are a LOT of oak trees (red & white) mixed in with the pines. That resulted in tons of acorns on the ground and zero activity at the feeders from mid-Oct until recently. That was pretty much the same across most of Texas from what I have heard.

I moved from South Texas (south of Zapata) to 3pt and it is different hunting for sure... I like it - especially going from 6+ hrs driving to 2hrs.

There is a pipeline going through this year some time, 1Q13 (last I heard). The land is owned by a timber company so there is year round activity on it. Still plenty of deer activity (before the acorns) even with some early fall clearing.

I am going to renew.

You can take what ever the state biologist tells us. This year it was more than you can handle. The age of the does has to be 2.5 and older. So there is no need to take a buck for meat when you have that many does to take home for meat.

I agree. He stays pretty busy along with his wife, who also coordinates many of the activities
. Its a job that I would want nothing to do with... that is for sure. I have no complaints about how they run the place.

The game biologist is also a class act. He went out of his way to help my dad and I out when we showed up last summer.

Deer meat is not a problem. As Rags stated, the biologist is working to get the ratio where it should be. Right now it is a little out of whack IMO... we need to take some more does. I had intended on taking one and let too many walk trying to get a buck. Once I made my mind up to take one they disappeared. Funny how that happens.

I can't remember the count for does taken but can find out.

Do you have to plant food plots and feed protein? What are the additional costs for electric and water?

Its an MLD lease so there are requirements to meet, which includes food plots. There is a "group food plot" that everyone pitches in to cover (~$50) You don't "have" to plant personal food plots but you certainly can. I plan on planting a plot on one of my shooting lanes, I understand that peas are the favorite but once they find them they wipe out the crop before they fully grow so I may look at setting something up to let the peas sprout and grow a bit before I run the dinner bell.

The group food plot, and other improvements to benefit all members is taken care of during the work weekends. There are two scheduled work weekends where we get together and take care of that kind of stuff. There is always something to be done so if someone cannot make a work weekend they can do something when they can. Working a work weekend will get your access to doe tags.

Same goes for protein, I plan on making it available late March/early April.

There is a grid for electrical but it was full when I brought in my camper so I was on a generator along with about 6 or 8 others. Not sure of what the price is but know it is reasonable. It doesn't cost anything to park a camper during hunting season and its only $100 annually to leave it there. That money goes to the timber company that owns the land (as I understand it).

Water is also available, you just may have to run a hose a little ways to get to a tap.

I'm sure there is a reason, but I need to be enlightened. Never understood why it matters what age does you can take. If your looking to even your numbers then just even them.

Also does anyone know if the dues have to be paid in full all at once or could you spread it out over 3-4 payments as long as its paid in full by the due date?

it's called genetic diversity - to keep the young from reproducing with the original doe

Can anyone elaborate on the rule of hunting "club stands" when your new? That seems like a lot of money to pay to not even be able to scout and set up a stand of your own.

Yeah it's actually a great idea. They have 30 or 32 club stands set up that the newbies can choose from. Any member can hunt the club stands but if a newbie request one, the other member has to move locations. Not only does this allow all the members to hunt the whole ranch this also gives the first year guys a chance to check it out for a season before bringing in all your gear and setting up only to realize the ranch is not for you. I could not imagine a better set up system all around. Bailey seems like a great guy and the whole place feels like one big family out there.

Big changes are in the works, so I've been told. Penalty for shooting young bucks will increase.. That's a good thing..To many young bucks being shot. Lease membership needs to be cut. To many hunters. The place has great potential.

If you're interested on the fees you will have to call the number on the website for current prices. It all depends on how you camp or rent cabins. It has water electricity and you can dig a septic. MLD3 so you don't use your tags, they give the first 2 weeks of October to only bow hunters then rifle season starts.
They will be instituting fines for killing too young of bucks, 500 for 3.5, 1000 for 2.5 and 1500 for 1.5 plus probation.

Who will age the jaws?? Just curious.
So a 4.5 year old can be shot with no penalty?
