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.

Have any of you hunted for Texas (as a country) stuff, Mexican Army, Civil War stuff etc. in this area.

Heck, Ol' Lafitte spent a lot of time in the area.

Any tips on where I might be able to hunt besides Rockport Beach....

Thanks,

Johnny

I read somewhere that old Lafitte was once caught upon land with some treasure up around (I want to say present day Port Lavaca) the coastal bend and took some readings with his compass where the booty was hastily buried. Something about an oak mott, maybe a little bit futher south. Wher the hell did I read that?

He supposedly amassed a large amount of booty that he buried on the "Blackjacks" - present day Aransas Nat. Wildlife Refuge from what I can gather.

A widow of one of his former men watched him and several men carry the booty in to the oaks, then only Lafitte came out.

Typical of a pirate, eh?
