Hunted off 234 which is only .5 a mile from there.

Unfortunately all I heard about was poachers being bad in the area but never saw anyone personally. Deer were fairly nocturnal but the 3rd year I could see 6-7 deer a hunt.

Biggest deer on cam was 125ish

Hunted for free so no help with price

I've gotten to hunt out there. Its in Milam county which your only doe days are Thanksgiving to Sunday unless your on a MLDP property.


I can't say what a fair price is as this is land that belongs to my buddy's inlaws. He's hunting there for free and has extended a few invites.

As for the number of deer in the area, my buddy's father-in-law said he hasn't seen many deer there in some time, but in the last few years they've been showing up more and more. Probably why there is such a restriction on harvesting the does.

PM more info of where in Rockdale, and I'll ask my buddy to see what he can find out about the area.

The numbers are growing every year. Heck, this evening I was taking the trash out to the road, and almost got run over by an 8 point.

We owned property very close to 322 for 11 years until 2016. Our place was on 327. Didn’t kill any good deer there but there are plenty of hogs.

Ex? That must be a whole lot of crazy to give up 1500 acres of hunting ground.

Used to lease 125 acres between hearne and gause. 30-45 minutes down the road. Can’t help with deer/hog numbers but I can tell you we paid $18 an acre. Felt like it was a little steep but we saw deer almost every sit, easy to fill the freezer and was very convienent for us. I’d still be on it if the landowners son didn’t kick us off so he could hunt it. Would also be interested in a lease around Rockdale if anyone knows of one.

When I was at A&M, I knew a girl whose family owned a ranch on the Brazos. They had some very big deer on it.
