Beautiful country.



I agree, and those cacti look like they could suck you in and stick you real easy.

Those are some great pictures of some great looking country.

It looks like there is a pretty good trail running along that creek.

Thanks

Yes it is! And since there's no live stock on the place, it's all game trails! Water is king in that part of Texas. Very few ponds with any water in them. That spring is like gold coming out of the ground. Dozens of trail coming into/out of it. There are two electric water wells on the other side of the property. That's all the water on the whole place. Come August I know the 3 general areas where every living creature on the place will have to frequent at least once per day.

Pat, the wildlife exemption is pretty easy to accomplish. He doesn't care anything about hunting at all, but loves the habitat and "maintenance" part of the property. Supplemental water, supplemental feed, and habitat management and you pretty well have the exemption whipped.

Cool, that's great to know! I had always heard that a wildlife exemption was difficult to obtain...I'm glad to hear that's not the case...Thanks :P

My uncle is doing the same thing on his place in Coryell County. The requirements are pretty simple, but I suppose it could be made more difficult by who's approving it on the county level. :mrgreen:

I tried to get a wildlife exemption 15 years ago in Hood County and met hurdle after hurdle. Last night I was discussing your post with a friend of mine and he tells me that he hired a professional to design a wildlife management plan for his property and met with success in Hood County. Thanks for getting my ball rolling again...it just goes to show that you never know what direction that even the most random post is going to take someone! :P
