I've been using brush blinds for the last 4 year years at the Buttes. You have to make sure they are thick and very hard to see through with only a small shooting window if you are bow hunting. These deer are very much alert and they keep their head on a swivel.

THatnks for the advice. It might be a little hard keeping a 8yr old content sitting there but it’s better to get them out and not see anything than have them sit at home lol

Now I am not trying to be a know it all or anything so someone correct me if I am wrong but since TB is now apart of TPWD I believe there is certain regulations against trimming or cutting trees. I remember reading something in the public lands rule/regs book that said trees or limbs couldn't be cut down and any brush blinds were to be made with deadfall and deadfall only. That may only apply to certain public lands or may be an old regulation but just a heads up.

Thanks for the info guys. The weather is looking pretty good for next week. I may try to make it. What are the camping areas like? Just looking at the map I was thinking of staying at the campsite by 8.

Hi. New guy here so I can't post a new thread yet. I have questions about TBR. If someone would PM me that would be fine. No need in filling up this thread with my inquiry.

You guys seem to be mostly deer hunters but do any of you know anything about the turkeys on TBR?

As long as the weather holds out, I'm thinking I may try to make a trip out there first part of next week. Hopefully late season and during the week it won't be too crowded. I'll probably camp at the camping area near unit 8 just from what I'm seeing on the map.

I'm planning on going Monday and staying a few days. Hopefully I won't need you, but even if it's an easy recovery I'll call you if you want to get a track in. I'll shoot you a PM.

That sucks. I actually changed my mind last minute and rented a cabin at Spring Creek Marina. Just down the road and hopefully I won't have to worry about my stuff there. I won't leave anything in the truck.

Hit this eight this year at 17 yards a little far back in liver tracked him 350 yards+ till 11 pm. Rained next day and still survallenced area another 3 hours. It was a heart breaker. Gave it an hour and half to die before I even went out.

Yeah... you WERE one of many that bowhunt that TBR that didnít have TBH... so itís kinda hard to know whoís gotten what and where and if someone had a target buck go missing... itís usually cause someone not on TBH shot it and we never got to see the pictures post... I think anyone that bowhunts TBR (even the shotgun walkers) should be required to have a TBH account hahaha... so we can all talk and get an idea of why we keep having people stacked on top of people with no regard to hunters courtesy...
