Looking for some tips on hunting whitetail. Im 22 and used to hunt a lot when I was 13-17 and haven't been hunting since, I live in Houston and want to go hunting on public land was wondering for some tips and where I should hunt. I know it's not deer season but if I'm going to do this by myself I should probably start planning now. The hunting I did was all on private property and so I didn't have to compete with dozens of other hunters, as well there were stands and feeders throughout the property. If anyone has some tips on where I should go and what I should look out for. Is East Texas bunked if I want to hunt on public land? Should I try Ok, Co, or West Texas? Should I purchase a tree stand and/or lures? What should I be prepared for and what should I look out for if I want at least an eight point?
