Anyone with any info/experience on unit 1, that is willing to share. I would appreciate it. (even if it is as simple as 'seen deer' 'seen hogs' etc. I drew it for the 1st non-youth weekend, Nov22-24.

Looking at the google maps, if the trail roads are in any shape at all the access throughout looks pretty good for my jeep. I have picked 3 spots to take a look at and would love to run them by anyone with experience in this zone.

My online search for info finds the Balcones success rate pretty poor. The 2011 management report numbers i found showed < 30 animals taken out of the 175 participants. Hope to break the trend.

PM me if you are interested in sharing...

Thanks,
Shane

Question about the 'etiquette' of the doe first rule.

So....
You arrive on site at exactly on Friday at noon with plans to go to your blind that you setup on the scouting day. You have a rifle in your lock box in your truck (or maybe you plan to bring it along as well). You drive on site and immediately see a very, very, very small doe at 200 yards across the field. Do you rifle shoot it and call it a day in order to get 2 full days in the blind with a buck tag?

ie Is there a deer too small to take just to upgrade your tag? Do you hold out for a better animal, knowing you may have a buck at 20 yds in the morning without the right tag?

If you know for SURE it's a doe (not spotted), pop it, get the buck tag, hunt bucks AND doe the next two days. Fill up that freezer.

It's management hunt, the idea is to lower doe population.

Took a drive through Balcones today. Saw a few does while driving on 1174 as soon as you get into the preserve area. I ended up driving up to Bertram And drove by the cedar creek inn. I am looking for a place to stay for our December hunt. Anyone ever stay at cedar creek inn or have any suggestions for places close by? I am not opposed to tent camping.

Well heading out to get in the tree and see if the big one steps out tonight!

I plan to go during scouting week ....

Maybe someone knows the answer to the question that worries me?

I am interested to understand how the 4 hunters in my zone will not just end up scouting and setting up in the same spot or aimed at each other.

Zone 1 (that I drew) is shown as 'open', but the docs talk about 'hunters will be assigned tracts'.... are there 'tracts within the Zone' or are they just referring to the zone and being inconsistent in the documents.

ie) Will I be assigned a quadrant of Zone 1? If not, do folks contact others on the same weekend to disclose chosen blind location?

Curiosity got the better of me and I made a phone call.....

tract = unit = zone.

So there will be 4 hunters on the property. TPW lady that I spoke with recommended taking the orientation on the day before your hunt weekend so that you have a chance to meet the other hunters in your zone to discuss location choice and possible conflicts.

i doubt they would do that or if tehy did they would have "areas" like unit8.

youll prob be on your own that weekend.


i was thinking maybe we all could meet out there on scouting weekend Sat and take orientation together. i called and tehy said just show up and they would start the orientation, i think they would perfer to get 4-5 hunters done at once instead of each one when they arrive. thoughts?

Yes. She confirmed that there will be 4 hunters per hunt, so up to 4 hunters (and 4 guests) in Unit 1 each weekend.

Area 1 is true open, so there is no 'assigned blind' or 'park here and walk' restriction. In her words people 'just worked it out'.

Just be careful moving in and out of the blinds if not done pre-dawn / high noon / after dark. You may very well walk thru someone's lane..... Sure hope everyone glasses with something other than a rifle scope....

Hopefully this is the case.... at $50. some people may just not be that committed to making it out.

The unit is fairly flat and open, so if they are there, you would at least see them coming in / out of the road.

Spent a some hours on the weekend on Unit 1, only seen 1 other hunter (youth weekender)

Lots of hog destruction, but never eyeballed any. If there was water, mud or exposed soil, they had been there. Thought I may have heard some grunting from time to time in the heavy brush, but did not see any movement.

Deer prints were everywhere with many promising runs (although many were leading to/from adjacent property with feeders) Did come across 2 does (one large mature, one smaller) just after midday, so that was promising. Found some sheds from a shooter buck.

Snakes, quail, dove, rabbits, excessive rimfire (complete with ricochets) coming in from adjacent property, etc. Pretty lively piece of property.

Getting pretty excited. My 12 yo and I will be in unit 8 the first weekend of December. I believe we drew "parking cone" B & E.

Any thoughts?

Scouted Unit 7 this evening. I cannot get to our parking cone in our 2wd pickup.
Couldn't even get near it. The roads are too steep and the gravel too loose. We are going to skip the hunt
and probably go to the ranch in Pleasanton.
If anyone is interested, there will be a standby hunt available for the youth hunt.
Our cone is/was I, way in the back. You will need 4wd.

I reached cones A, B, D & E. Could probably get to C.
I did not try the north route, but getting to H, I & J won't happen in a 2wd on the other 2 routes.
Cannot say about F & G, but I don't have more time to try the north route.
We have plenty of deer in Pleasanton.

Default In Unit 7 December 6, 7, and 8

I scouted last weekend and I REALLY needed my 4WD. Hit one spot where I just turned around because it was straight down on rock.

Lots of hog sign and some nice game trails, but it was hard to tell if they were being used by hogs or deer. Thinking more hogs since after 50 to 100 yards off the road, there was almost always a few wallows.

Good luck all.

I took this exact same picture this past Monday. We got all the way to cone F in two wheel drive on the west side road. Came back down the same way you tried and it was definitely steep.

Blind is setup ... Hopefully the front gets thru in the AM tomorrow and gives me a few decent sessions without raining too heavy. Seen a nice buck and 3 does from where I setup... Hopefully they make the same series of errors every morning.

try Leander Cedar Park area, its not a bad drive out there from there. theres a La Quinta on 183 and 1431.

TimeMachine, "B" is a good spot. pigs moving from west to east on your cone when i hunted, dont have any experiences with "E". Unit 8 has a rough rocky hill climb on the enterance. check pages 1 and 2 on here i have some other info on that unit.

Arrived at 3:00 for the evening hunt. One hunter registered on site.

Met the other hunter walking back to move his truck. He apparently just arrived, walked 500 yards and shot a spike, just off the entry road.

Deer were already in motion, we spooked 3 does on the way into the blind, they seen us long before we seen them ... Got settled in and then the heaven opened. At last check 5.25" according to lcra. Gave up after seeing nothing by 5:15 with no signs of it letting up... Easier to walk out with some light.

Half way out had a shot at a doe.... don't want to talk about it.

OK, now I want to talk about it (see previous post)

Arrived on site at 5:30AM. Walked back to the blind, as all roads except the gate road were impassable. Waited for sunrise, then set to work searching for the doe that I was forced to give up on in the sleet/storm the night before. Found it, dressed 72lbs, ~18m old. Luckily it was colder than a fridge out.

Took care of the paperwork, processing, etc.... went back out with the buck tag. Seen a nice buck but it pulled a David Copperfield and did not come out of the other side of the cedar it had walked behind.

One more kick at using the tag tomorrow.

ps if you setup in the far SW corner, ensure you are capable of making it there in all weather. 2200 yards I dragged the deer (according to google maps). Need a beer.

Never converted on the buck tag, but had a sighting of 2 good bucks on the same run (one in the early AM, one late evening).

Went out and checked the tracks from the 'Copperfield' buck sighting, looks like he bedded down and waited out until after dark, as the exit trail led across the open field. Had assumed he may have turned and walked straight back away from the blind behind the tree, but there was no sign of that.

Had a good chance to talk with an adjacent land owner over the fence. She confirmed a medium size 8 and a large 10 were back and forth in the area quite a bit lately. And she had seen them sparring in the field in the past. (she was not willing to wish us luck on either of them, but did wish us luck in general) The sleet seemed to keep most of the movement down. We really only seen deer during the few breaks in between. Had the cold and had the wind, but I guess the constant string of heavy precipitation storms was just too much. She mentioned a lot of hog traffic up from the canyons at the bottom of the property. Did not see a single hog, only prints. She mentioned that she had not seen turkey in quite a while, aligned with the increase in hog population.

Wasn't surprised that the gut pile was gone the by the next morning.... but was surprised by the size of the feline paw prints that were around it (and a few coyote tracks). Neighbor said she seen bobcat crossing the road on occasion. Never heard the coyotes at night, but the may have been hiding out from the weather too.

All in all, a good hunt. After last weekend I expected to be in a t-shirt, but did get to rough test my wet gear / cold gear / etc.

Best of luck to those following up on future weekends.

My son and I are hunting this weekend. Unit 8. We will be on line and reporting our day. We are going the soft route and staying in a hotel. Plan on hunting pretty hard. I'm even hoping to bribing/pay some younger hunters to skin and quarter our deer. We are leaving Houston early, get to the 12:00 orientation, find good place for pop-up and be ready for evening hunt.

I will be out in Unit 7 this weekend and also plan to hunt hard. I like it that it will be cold, maybe keep the game moving. I will also jump on the forum, if I can get cell reception out there. It was spotty in my area when I was out scouting.
