BLM national lands
« on: August 25, 2017, 12:20:30 PM »
There are three national forests in east texas.. at least one of which you can hunt on... I am curious though... Is recreational shooting allowed at Sabine National Forest? The website does not say it is specifically prohibited, but it also does not say it is allowed.  I'd really like to put my hiking pack on and drag my tent a few miles into the forest and camp and shoot for recreation (at targets.) Anyone know anything about BLM lands in Texas?

Look at getting the public lands permit. TPWD will send a booklet with all the lands and their use with that permit. I think it is worth it You need it to hunt Huntsville state park anyway. The BLMs have their rules and ways to access the hunts and hunting ground. If you looking to save money check out the Davy Crockett National Forest. You can go to the ranger station in Kennard they can give you the rules and regulations to hunt there. No permit was required when I hunted there a few years back, but at least call and make sure nothing has changed. There are deer in those woods. I have seen plenty of tracks and scrapes.
