My family and I have recently decided that we will no longer support unethical meat production. We have stopped buying meat for the time being (although I'm open to procuring meat from a permaculture farm). As such, our only meat these days comes from what I can procure hunting. Unfortunately, hunting in Texas is a little difficult due to a shortage of public lands. so, my question is: does anybody hear have a farm near Austin, Texas with a deer problem? Could it be that your problem is my solution!?!
I am a very responsible hunter and use a compound bow. Safety is paramount. Please reach out if you know of any opportunities. I am happy to lend a hand on the farm and/or share the harvest.
I am familiar with the public hunting opportunities near Austin. Unfortunately, none of them are that great. Somerville is the only option that you don't have to be drawn for and it gets so much hunting pressure that it is hardly worth it.
You may be hard pressed to find a farmer in all of the south with a deer "problem". However, wild pork should be easy to procure. Everyone and their mother has problem pigs. Many have issues letting strangers hunt there land, but you should be able to find some. I won't let you hunt, my place isn't big enough, but may let you build a trap. Send me a Pm.
