Does anyone know where I can get on a good hunting lease or find a place to hunt near Houston?

What kind of hunting? Waterfowl, Deer, or Hogs?

I'm not in the market at the moment, but I would recommend you try Craigslist, Chronicle classified, TPW, and a Google Search for "Texas Hunting Lease". That's how I would do it anyway. I don't generally hunt ducks/geese, but my brother-in-law does and says there's tons of places west of town and they're easy to get on. Apparently it is very good hunting out there.

Deer hunting close to Houston? It might depend on what you define as close I suppose. I'm sure there are places to do it, but my belief (and what people who know more about this than me tell me) is that what you would find around would be a few scrawny deer not worth hunting. There are always exceptions, but who wants to spend the money, time and effort to hope for an exception?

Personally, I hate making the darn drive to the Hill Country. But then when the sun comes up and I'm deciding which of several nice deer I want to go for, I have to admit it's worth it. Now, if I could move the whole setup closer, say Colombus, I would be tickled pink. But despite my pleas, the deer simply refuse to even consider a move.

There is great water fowl hunitng near houston. To hunt deer and hogs you look to the hill country or for the really nice deer south Texas. There are deer in the piney woods but not as good a quilty as south texas. I would google deer hunting in Texas etc.

try deertexas.com for your deer lease needs, scott is great people and he has some great places.

that is where i found my old lease. on family place right now.

water foul try third coast outfitters, they have day and season leases. randy is as straight up as they come.

west of houston, heck west and south of san antonio are the best places to hunt, northwest of san antonio has a ton of dear and lots of places have wild exotics that have escaped high fence places. hogs are taking over EVERYWHERE so you can find plenty of places but stay away from wildhoghunt.com, this guy is a rip off and has a bad name on many of the hunting forums.

A recently as the late 1990's there was excellent waterfowl hunting a short drive west of town, but that isn't really the case anymore. You can still find decent dove hunting around Brookshire/Sealy/San Felipe but the Katy prairie is mostly dead for duck and geese. There are still some teal hunts (and sometimes big ducks) to be had around Sealy over some of the flooded rice fields and you may get lucky finding a patch of good birds closer in, but it will never be like it was (there used to be a concentration of Geese on either side of I-10 as close as Grand Parkway). For good waterfowl nowadays you need to drive - Eagle Lake is about the closest and the coast around Rockport has been very consistent.

Look at Eagle Lake for leases.

Hog hunting is just about anywhere. Trophy deer require driving, harvesting meat can happen very close to houston.

I've had some good experiences with Third Coast Outfitters, but you can find better hunting for less money (and better dirty jokes).
