Public land in Texas to shoot?

Hi guys, I am new to shooting and was wondering if anyone in Texas knows of a place to go shoot for free. Is there any public land near Dallas Fort Worth that someone could go shoot on? I want to be able to practice different distances and focus on techniques while taking my time and having little distractions. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I would love to know somebody that owns land

There's a couple of us up in Princeton and elsewhere north of McKinney that have some land. I'll be moving onto 10 acres at the end of the year and plan to setup a small range.

though with the cost of gas driving from Ft. Worth to Princeton, you've probably spent as much as you would on range fees. :P

Texas does not have a whole lot of public land for as big as it is.. It's mostly private, city or state owned.

All I have is two acres. People around me have said its legal to shoot on my property in wise county but I'm just not sure if That's true. I thought you had to have at least 10 acres. If I did tho it'd just be plinking with a 22. Would be worried anything bigger could be too risky.

Honestly It's really not about $ so a drive would not be bad It's more about being able to do more, shoot more and have more freedom to say practice rapid fire or shots from different positions. I'm in Haslet which is north of Ft. Worth. Really I would love to come shoot
