Planning a hunting camping trip on the river

boat angelina riverA buddy of mine called last night and asked if I wanted to go on a camping / hunting trip on the Angelina River sometime soon. My answer was “of course”.

I’am not going to disclose the exact location or dates until after the fact.

The plan involves getting one of the primitive camping spots on the Angelina River close to Jasper, Texas and go hunting in the public hunting lands. When I bought my hunting license, I also bought a fishing and public hunting lands permit. Being on the river would give me the chance to do some fishing, camping, and all kinds of hunting.

The trip will probably span 2 – 3 days.

Now I just have to get a map of the public hunting land available where we are going camping. When I bought my public hunting lands license, a few days later I received a hand book with maps of the entire state of Texas. The hand book showed where the public hunting lands are at.

Back in the summer I did a review of the eureka solitaire one person tent. For cold weather camping, the confined space of the eureka solitaire is just not going to be practical. There is not enough room to move around, sit up, put your boots on, put your clothes on,  or keep the MOLLE pack in the tent. For a 3 day trip, I’am going to have to bring my large MOLLE pack, change of clothes, cold weather boots,,,, and all of that needs to be in the tent where it can stay dry. The eureka solitaire just is not big enough for the job.  So before I go on the camping / hunting trip with my buddy, I’am going to look into another one person tent – one that is big enough to keep my gear in, and move around in.

More details soon.
