FCS Season Dove Lease Near Bartlett


Mike Walsh, Dove Czar, met with Brett Harbers on 7/6/22 on his land near Bartlett.  Brett showed him around the lease and he was pleasantly surprised to see the amount of sunflowers that were there.  The middle hay field, that borders the fence line behind the three-stall shed tree line and the big sunflower field, is now covered in sunflowers, making 150 acres of sunflowers to hunt.  See the below pictures.  Brett will cut strips with his tractor through all the sunflower fields so we can hunt in them if we want and also will be able to recover our birds.  The lease cost is still $250/hunter.

Here’s a birds-eye picture of the lease – https://www.google.com/maps/place/30%C2%B050’54.7%22N+97%C2%B025’58.7%22W/@30.8475476,-97.4378252,929m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d30.848524!4d-97.432965?hl=en.  Another group has the area in the bottom right marked with an “X” (we can’t hunt there).  You’ll see the barn (to the right of center), the fields, the tanks, the creek, and the wooded areas.  If you’re a Facebook Friend of Ken Miller he has a lot of pictures of the lease on his Facebook page.

There will be an additional property that has 60 acres of sunflowers.  It’s about 1/4 mile south of the lease.  Go through the double gate on the dirt road to enter the property on the north end or go into the abandoned homestead further down on the right to access the south end of the field.  Bret wants to put 20 guns on the additional property and 20 guns on the original property.  If he can’t get a total of 40 guns from us, Brett may lease the additional property to another group.  So far, we have 42 commitments.  Most dove leases go for $350+/person.

Brett will also serve a barbecue meal with all the sides and drinks to all of the hunters on Saturday, 9/3/22, from 10:30 AM – 2:00 PM, free of charge.

RSVP to Mike if you want to be on this lease at duxmn@austin.rr.com or 512-560-7001.  Also contact Mike if you have any questions.  Payment in full is now due to Mike (make your check out to Brett Harbers) at 106 San Saba St., Round Rock, TX 78664.  Ranchers, including the property landowner, Brett, are hurting due to the drought and having to supplemental feed their cattle; therefore, we’re asking for payment a little earlier this year.
