    Ok, so as the hunters are prolly aware, creeks, streams and rivers are public land. That means we can use it for any lawful purpose we see fit. Does that also mean that I can drive down one and see where it goes and how much fun I can have? I have a feeling that driving 2 or 3 miles into the King Ranch would be fun and challenging. Thoughts?

    I think there is a law about causing erosion or something like that and trucks are frowned upon in waterways.

    From my understanding, that's not true. Pretty sure it's a class C misdemeanor to operate a vehicle in a creek or waterway in Texas.. Regardless of private or public land. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong
