The john is usually a Chemcan that is brought out during hunting season on some. Others can have sleeping quarters, full baths, kitchens, etc. You should see some of the 4 Star hunting "cabins" that sleep 30 or more with the 4 Star chefs and staff to feed the crowds. Obviously, unless you have mega bucks, you aren't invited. South Texas is covered with this kind of opulence.

It would be nice to hunt one of those South Texas ranches, at least once.

No doubt Trapper! Airplane landing strips and high rack 4x4 trucks with elevator platforms are the norm.

Heck, TPWD will give game management permits so they can basically set their own hunting season and bag limits.

I get invited once a year to my bosses ranch near Carrizo Springs. He just doesn't want us using the swimming pool.

kingudaroad, I can understand that. A bunch of us came back to the Holiday Inn after a day of driving race cars, jumped in the pool--and left a ring around that sucker.

Pool maintenance is a PITA...
