Just a warning NEVER buy a turkey hunt with TEXAS LTD HUNTING!!!! A good friend of mine and my son went to texas with me on a hunt this week. We were told that we would hear more turkeys in a morning hunt than we would hear all season here. I was also told my 12 yr old son could shoot as many hogs as i was willing to clean. We got there on the 25th and was told hunting was great my friend was even talked into paying another 500 bucks for the right to kill 4 turkeys. the morning of the hunt we were told that we could not move from the deerstand/blind we were put in. they had one hole in the front to shoot through with a feeder about 25yrds out the window. I told him that wasnt turkey hunting to me and i didnt feel right sitting on a feeer waiting on a turkey. Long story short we were never turned lose to hunt, we were put in deerstands or up against a pallet tied to a bush or fence next to a feeder every hunt. the BLINDS were full of peanuts candy wrappers water bottles and shotgun shells. The only upside was that he couldn't watch us both at the same time. I moved 250yrds from his blind and killed a bird 10in beard 24lbs. Chris moved that evening on a bird about 400yrds from his blind and killed a bird 10in beard 22lbs. The man was so sure that we didnt kill those turkeys from the blinds he put us in that he put us in the middle of a cow pasture the next morning with about 60 cows. All together in 3 days of hunting we as a group heard 9 different Gobblers 7 of which were not on his property the only two turkeys seen were killed and we never even saw a hog TRACK let a lone a hog. For 4000 bucks we got the pickle!!
