Welcome to Texas Outdoor Organizers (T.O.O.), Texas' largest fully independent hunting and fishing trip planner. Purpose of T.O.O. T.O.O. was founded in February 2000 with the business philosophy of committing to the sportsman/woman that wishes to fish or hunt in Texas. T.O.O. has only worked for the sportsman/woman, we have never been a "booking agent" for any specific hunting ranch, guide, or captain in Texas. T.O.O. works for the Sportsman, always has, always will!
Our only focus is making sure the sportsman/woman that agree to have T.O.O. work for them receive the best hunting or fishing package based on their trip's criteria.
As 2012 begins, T.O.O. is starting it's 12th year working full time in the Texas Hunting/Fishing landscape. That is what we do; work within hunting and fishing related venues, 24/7, all around Texas.
T.O.O. has expanded it's hunting/fishing presence into other hunting/fishing related avenues, but the core of our business always will be making sure those looking to hunt or fish in Texas and allow T.O.O. to work for them find the best deal for their time and money.
Let Texas Outdoor Organizers work for you in finding, planning, and making the hunting or fishing trip happen with as little hassle as possible on your end.

Early 2012 Texas Hunting/Fishing Outlook 2012 has started off with a blessing as much of the state received solid rain fall from October through late January. Not all of Texas received the rain but much of south, central, east and north Texas has received good rain. The areas of west Texas and the Panhandle haven't received as much rain through January, but overall much of Texas has benefited from solid rainfall amounts from October through late January. Right now most areas of Texas have fair to substantial levels of ground moisture and that should get the deer, turkey, and other game off to a solid start due to spring green up and resulting food growth for the animals. Most of Texas will require much more rain through May to continue this growth pattern, but things are looking a lot better in early 2012 than late winter/early spring of 2011. As beneficial the rains have been for the last few months, most Texas lakes have not seen enough heavy rainfall with the good run-off required to fill the lakes. That often happens in the spring and most lakes in Texas need this weather event to fill up the lakes. The result as of late January is that many lakes in Texas are still way below normal pool level. That will affect the fishing in Texas lakes, but that has happened before and we will receive run-off at some point and refill the lakes. Whether of not it is in 2012 or later remains to be seen. For the coastal regions, Texas had a bad dose of Red Tide in the fall into winter that killed a lot of bait and non-game fish, along with limited numbers of game fish such as our Speckled Trout, Red Drum, Snook, and other species. The Red Tide affected the fishermen more than the game fish as the affects of Red Tide made it uncomfortable to fish when it was present. The Red Tides seems to have ended it's run, and the bays seem to be in great shape for 2012.
Bay fishing has been and is still excellent up through late January as the winter has been mild with little in the way of severe cold spells. With a little luck there will be no February 2012 "Killer Freeze" as in 2011 and if Texas does get through February with out a serious cold spell, the spring of 2012 should be a great one for bay fishing. Off shore fishing has been solid, with limited problems other than the usual strong winds affecting the smaller offshore boats. The long range tuna charters on the "party boats" have had great luck through late January catching Yellowfin Tuna and other species. Again the mild winter has allowed for these tuna trips to get out and fish with limited cancellations and the result has been some very good fishing for offshore fishermen. As 2012 gathers stream, T.O.O. has been encouraged by the rainfall, mild weather, and relatively low winds so far for that affects the hunting and fishing across Texas. With a little luck the rains and weather will continue to bless all of Texas and the sportsman can look forward to a fantastic year of hunting and fishing in Texas.
How Texas Outdoor Organizers works and Fees T.O.O. offers three options for the sportsman to find the right Texas hunting or fishing trip. 1. List of hunting or fishing Trips Sportsmen request a list of hunting or fishing options based on their criteria. T.O.O. will provide a list of up to 10 quality, reputable business's that fit that criteria. The sportsman does all the calling, booking, sending deposits, etc. If no deal is reached with the business's on the list T.O.O. will provide another list with up to 5 more ranches, guides/captains that fit the criteria required. This option works for those sportsman that want to do the interviewing themselves so to speak. About 15% of T.O.O.'s use option 1.

2. Book an outdoor Trip through T.O.O. Most sportsmen/women hire T.O.O. to work for them to provide hunting or fishing options that fit the criteria requested. T.O.O. provides all information does the calling/contacting and works with the sportsmen/women to make sure the presented hunts fit the criteria of the sportsmen/women. The sportsmen/women have final say on which trip they choose, and T.O.O. assists in all aspects of the trip, booking the dates, taking care of deposits, forwarding paperwork, providing an itinerary of the trip, everything needed to be prepared for the particular hunting or fishing trip. Standard fee for Option 2 is 10% of the hunt cost only. No adding license, travel, meal costs, or anything else when we present quality hunting or fishing options to you. Example: $2,000 total cost hunt, T.O.O. fee is $200. Simple, easy, and most times T.O.O. will save the sportsman money even with this fee by presenting the best hunts at the lower end of your price range.
