I'm on a hunting lease in the area and plan on doing a bit of swinging down there. It's 1200 acres or so and I have not found any signs of prior habitation by anything other than cows. There are some corrals and livestock windmills. But not much else in the way of obvious man made structures...
I'm reading a book on the history of Aransas County.
I was unaware of just how much military activity occurred there and the many settlements that existed in the area.

Nothing worth posting pictures of yet, but give me time. I have faith that there will be some awesome stuff coming soon.
Wish me luck.
Just got my new ACE 250 and went to an old park in Grey Forest, TX. - Est. 1928. Every time the detector said nickle it was an aluminum can or at least a piece of one.
