2018 San Angelo surrounding area season thread.....
 
It was a dang good thread in 2017 again and with protein, cottonseed, alfalfa, turkey and coon killing season coming up it's time to start a new one. [emoji3]. Junior is getting antsy so here we go!

Post up your pics and stories fellas as usual. Hunts, trail camera pics, LDPs, work weekends, new projects, food, drinks, coons and other varmint carnages are all welcome! The more participation (and last year was a great example) the better the thread. Here's to a bountiful 2018 for us Angelo area hunters!;)b

2018 San Angelo surrounding area season thread.....
 
Trying cottonseed for the first time this year. They arenít killing it but they are getting used to it and nibbling. Fine by me. Mother Nature seems to have put some weight back on em after the rut already so they must still have a good source. I prefer her financing my feed bill anyway. Iím sure that will change soon.[emoji1303]

I trapped 500 of them this weekend going to drop off at your place!

Along with a trailer load of pigs ;)b

Smart 01-14-2018 08:05 AM

Already finding sheds in the feedpens with 4 full sets so far across the ranch from the doe and spike hunters. Seeing several deer on my Covert with them gone as well. I guess itís not real early since itís mid January and we usually have a few lose them by now. But it it is a larger than normal amount found for us already.... especially with their bodies being in seemingly good condition.

txwhitetail 01-14-2018 08:06 AM

Yeah saw a 12 pt buck at the sterling processing last week that had both horns laying next to it. They said they shot it and when it fell they both fell off.

Bring only gobblers[emoji13][emoji23]

Keep the pigs! [emoji23][emoji23]. Iíd love to have them to hunt in the offseason but I sure like not having to deal with them during season

**** glad they were able to find them[emoji23]. That would be a bummer. Canít find his horns Ma !

Anxious to see how this year plays out. I may be letting my spot go but not positive yet. I’ll still control the management (age minimum, culls, and numbers) since it’s my families property, but may be moving on to more of a trophy setting.

Mayhem 01-14-2018 08:36 AM

A lot about to go down at our place with windmills and such.

Looking forward to getting out there soon and maybe trying to find an aoudad.

allenshawn1 01-14-2018 09:05 AM

After my cotton seed sat for 6 months, the deer and turkey would brows through the corn and gorge themselves.

Hopefully mine doesnít sit that long.[emoji15]. Well unless Mother Nature provides other things.

The other two guys on my place that feed it have problems keeping it filled so Iím hoping my deer do the same.

I'm in! Still in Water Valley, but I'm getting on another place. Ready for turkey season after my first one last year.

Filling bulk protein now haven’t seen any sheds around feed pens yet. I’ll check cam cards later.

Sure been a dry winter not many winter weeds, etc.

txwhitetail 01-14-2018 12:31 PM

Cottonseed topped off and Buck (TXBuck74) got a Blackbuck yesterday afternoon . Deer are hammering the feed right now. All our free choice protein feeders on the ranch will be topped off in a few weeks. Deer are looking really good right now. Iíve never seen our deerís body conditions this good.

Heading out to Christoval Friday to fill feeders (corn and protein)and water tanks. Maybe even tag one last doe if one presents herself. Might even go by and pee on Smarts cotton seed:)

bbqfan5909 01-15-2018 01:32 PM

Deer are killing the cotton seed on our place in Mitchell County. Been through 2000 lbs in a month with 10 tons delivered at lease.

txwhitetail 01-15-2018 03:28 PM

Anyone hauled cottonseed in a trash trailer?

Just a quick FYI....

AntlerCollector and I put out a ton of Cotton Seed on December 31st......Checked it Monday and it was all gone.......500# per spot over 4 hunting areas and it was ZERO on Monday.

They are hitting the Cotton Seed hard right now

bowsticker 01-16-2018 08:43 AM

Yea it will go super fast when they need it and already know what it is.

Not sure of any Coops down that way. Wall would be a little far.

Ballinger area probably closest to Brownwood.

bphillips 01-16-2018 11:25 AM

txbowhunter60 01-16-2018 11:56 AM

Id like to hear from anyone that hunts around the Barnhart area if that's not to far. It was my first yr on the lease and seeing trophy deer on camera much less shooting them was pretty slim. If anyone hunts close Id sure like to hear if your year was any better.

Wow. Blows my mind yall have deer shedding already.

I hunt South of Ozona, which isn't exactly San Angelo area, but still not all that far, and we usually don't shed until March.

Im probably 20-25 miles north of Barnhart but a lot different country.

That area was hit really hard with the drought. Really will be the next year or really two before we get age classes back in line.

Have you been on your place long? Any management rules in place prior years?
