I think you sent them a message by shooting him in face. You'll probably never be charged again. Haha

Kevin, again great news. Prayers continued.
Chief, that's a heck of a story.
Lee, looks good. Fine table fare.

As for me, long story short. Nothing was harmed in the making of my story.

Got in the stand early, daybreak and I figure out the feeder is behind me. Don't see a thing. Get down at the appointed time and with the map I was given, I realize there is a pond near me just up the hill. I walk up there and just look around for a minute.
I head back to my stand ( about 200 yards) and here comes John to get me in his truck. I get in and he drives up the hill towards the pond to show me around. As we crest the hill I see three deer. 2 bucks and a doe. ( Mind you I was just standing there not even a minute ago)
They end up running off.
We shot recurves during the mid day and I learned a lot about them. Got to see John shoot his Olympic bow at 33 yards and stack the arrows in there.
Back out for the evening hunt and I had a young bull come in to the feeder and eat.
Then a much shorter drive home than the drive home from the Sam.
Great day.

And no he honestly didn't have a urine smell at all, kinda smelled like a farm pig. But his shield was about an inch, inch and a half thick.

Last time I posted my deer here... all I got was a bunch negative feedback (cause I didn't have my orange on- took off at road side), just before I loaded in truck so would have some wildlife background. Man I got hammered for that. Listen I enjoy sharing info and how too. I'm lifetime Hunting license holder (won't risk messing things up).
But to answer your ? Bow (primary mean for me) deep in wood of Sam by Livingston area, bike ride in gets me away from road hunters quiet and quick. Now have to go get my cameras out. Help all summer to get this deer. There is a 10 roaming out, but pic shows him mostly at night. I'm determined to get him.
I will now switch gear and use 300 last week of season

Since the Sam is a wma, they set their own bag limits. 1 buck (13 inside, or unbranched) 2 doe. For reference, very first line in the picture.

Correct, One Buck Only in SHNF. The County may be 2 Buck, But you are only allowed one Buck. X2... read your Public Hunting Book.

I believe the picture above posted by BW96 was the information that contradicted it. That excerpt of harvest regulations is for the Sam Houston National Forest. Which says one buck. That buck, at your discretion, can be one of a 13" or greater spread, or have at least one unbranched antler.

Whatever you wanna believe bud. We’re just trying to help. The official rules have been posted for your review. And the Sam doesn’t spread all the way to the Livingston area. I think you are totally lost all together.

I would reach out to a game warden for the information but I too have always had the understanding the SHNF was a 1 total buck WMA.

Now as far as not wearing orange in your photos I wouldn’t pay those folks any mind.

Tiberius - really not trying to discourage you. Glad you are having a good season. However orange on all the time and one buck are basic SHNF rules.

I've been researching Sam Houston National Forest a lot lately to plan a squirrel hunt in February and it is very confusing.

OnX map shows the Sam Houston WMA (which is 1 buck) as limited to just those forest lands in Walker County and everything outside of that to be "general forest" which would fall under county bag limits (2 bucks).

However, I found other literature from both USDA and TPWD indicating that ALL of Sam Houston NF is WMA.

I could see how people would be confused if using OnX or something similar.

I did this a couple years ago and it seemed to work good as a reference point.
I have added multiple links to the rules for the SAM below.

When I started on this thread I was a spike. As a matter of fact, I came to TBH because I was looking for more information on the SAM. As I have said before, most of the guys on here are pretty cool.
Here are a few of tips;
1. This is mostly an informative thread where people chat and cutup; hunting the SAM is the initial thread that binds. However, it isn't for bashing or just running off at the mouth. Please take that somewhere else.
2. Many of these guys on here know each other and their idiosyncrasies.
3. Don't splash in and expect everyone to understand you and where you are coming from. Get to know the guys and they will get to know you.
4. Don't ask stupid questions like where are your GPS coordinates, etc.
5. Do your homework. Some rule questions are still debated here, but if you ask if you can hand corn in the SAM you will get ignored.
6. Enjoy the hunt.

Of course no one can enforce these suggestions, but many people enjoy this thread. If you can't do these simple things please don't waste it for the rest of us.

However, I found other literature from both USDA and TPWD indicating that ALL of Sam Houston NF is WMA.

I could see how people would be confused if using OnX or something similar.
i would definitely go off of the TPWD regulations in the APH book.
