Hunting in Chambers County

The Wild Side of Chambers County is a popular destination for hunting in the fall, winter & conservation seasons – specifically for dove & waterfowl.  Somewhat divided by the Trinity River, the county surrounds Trinity Bay and extends from the south end of Big Pine country -down to the Gulf waters of the Upper Texas Coast. The western portion of the county is more urbanized and the eastern portion of the county is more agricultural and includes more of the public lands. Rice farming and cattle ranching operations are a significant part of the landscape in eastern Chambers County, with additional wildlife wetlands & grazing areas due to conservation efforts by our National Wildlife Refuges and private land owners.
