Property joining a WMA

Thread starter #1

The idea of owning a small tract joining a WMA appeals to me. I mean, a person would have access to the WMA lands for hunting yet only pay taxes for a small property. Unfortunately, I do not see many properties like this. In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of this idea?

Nobody has any thoughts at all?
Well, does anyone live next door to a WMA, or a National Forest.? Yes? Tell us the pros and cons. We are all ears? :)
 
I think it's a great idea but will take a lot of research and time to find that special place... And it may not be in TX. If you be thinking about TN let me know and I'll do some searching and asking for you.

My biggest fear is that you also have everyone in the world with open permission to hunt right up to your front door. Then you also have to worry about your relationship with the WMA crew. I like to left dogs run loose and be dogs, that may be frown on in some WMA's.

It might be better to buy enough land to do it all. Maybe a low down payment with a long loan to pay for it. I would just consider the monthly payment to be rent so to speak. I want to get away from rattlesnakes. I know there are rattlesnakes everywhere down here in the south, but in some areas there are not as many. Around my place here, I kill them every year. The neighbor across the road has killed 3 lately. And rattlesnakes are death to a small hound. We've lost great hounds already.
