i think the OP is more interested in staying a bit closer to home in Texas for a lease to hunt on.

I think timing is everything on hunting leases as well. Start now, don't wait until mid to late summer as everyone else is doing the same thing. Also, as was mentioned, if you can get a group together that might be the best way. Around here in Minnesota, there is the option to lease from mining companies, and there are a lot of Craigslist opportunities.

We hunt on private land in Montana that my father in law found by door knocking over 40 years ago. 25 square miles of private land and every year, everyone gets a deer without fail.

In Texas,since about 90% of the land in the state is privately owned,unless you own land or know someone that does,you will need to either lease land for hunting or try the Tx. Parks and Wildlife's lottery to hunt different state owned lands.
Since deer hunting is a big cash cow in this state,you need to find a lease you can afford. You also need to find out if it's a year long lease,or just a season lease. A lot of hunters find out the hard way after paying big bucks for a lease,and it's only for deer season.
I would only lease a year long lease,that way you can hunt/fish/use the property all year long. I pay $2k for a year long lease,and it's split between myself and my cousin.

Check bulletin boards at local feed stores,local papers,small town cafe's for some great hunting leases. If you find a farmer/rancher that has land to lease,offer to help them out doing chores,and it will help you get your foot in the door with them if you are a total stranger.
Most outsiders aren't trusted hunters to these folk's,and if you gain their trust,you can find some great hunting spots.

Is Texas pretty unique.

Leases appear to not be a thing West of the Rockies with all the public land.

What about the rest of the Midwest and East Coast States? Lots of public land?

Leasing has been very common in the southeastern states for the past 30 years or so, especially timberlands owned by large corporations. Prior to the 1980's much timberland owned by companies like Weyerhaeuser, Ranier, Georgia-Pacific, etc. could be hunted as if it was public. Buckeye Cellulose (aka Proctor & Gamble Cellulose) charged like $10 for an annual permit. Most of this land is now either privately leased or leased by states for public access.

Leasing has been gaining momentum in the Midwest for the past 20 years or so. I don't know much about the northeast.
