Cane in east Texas
« on: May 11, 2010, 05:34:15 pm »
Ok I'll be heading home to MO this weekend from Houston TX. I would like to pick ip some cane and I've seen quite a bit on the side of the highways. Dies anyone know if there are any rules about cutting cane from public roadways I'm east TX?

Commadore, I do it all the time and nobody has ever said anything to me.  I don't know about rules though >:D. Everyone is talking on a cell phone or texting anyway, I doubt they will notice you. LOL

Mark,I don't cut cane right on the highway,and I'm sure the DPS would stop to see what your up to. You might ,however,turn down a side road and have a look.Just don't cross a fence,without permission.I cut mine along river and creek banks.Also,there are other species of bamboo growing along our highways that don't make good arrows.Make sure you are harvesting native switchcane.
