Hey xkmorris, talked with J.Q. Richardson about an opening over the weekend. He is sending me a map so I can take a look at the club and the grounds. Turns out, after trying to find someone to ask about Ico, I ended up with him. He and my dad used to work together selling insurance. So, I wound up finding someone I already knew. Small world! How long have you been at Ico and how would you rate your experience? Also, what regulations above and beyond the AGFC rules are followed the club? Anything else you want to add?

I have been there 6 or 7 years and I really like down there. We hold the member ship to 75 but I cant remember when there were that many hunters in the woods all the time I have been there. The most that I can recall is about 35 on opening weekend then it goes down from there. We have a 200 yd limit when you put out a stand so you will need to look around to make sure you are not to close to any one and a limit on stands fo 4.Last year I took a nice 8 point and a 7 point & a doe. Seems I cant post a picture til after 15 posts. Will post picture later. Ken

From what I've been told, I know that there are some hogs in the bottoms. Otherwise, I don't know about the dog running or the exact location. If I get the map from Mr. Richardson in the mail soon, I'll try to throw it up on here for you to ponder.

I'm just getting into the lease. So, like I said, all I know is what I've heard. Probably going to head over there and take a look as soon as I get the map, though. Also, there's a one-time $20 fee for a gate key.

Brookz,
I am in a club around Hampton. Also, we have permission to hunt several thousand acres of private ranches in East Texas. We may head to Texas in 2 weeks. Do you have dogs? We have Black mouths and one leopard gyp. My wife raises American Bulldogs, so a catch dog is easy to come by around here. I will send you a link to check out our site if you would like. She just got a new web address, and it is not an easy one for me to remember.
