not on Grapevine without some cover.
There are no deer out there but if one does happen by, they are very alert to humans.

I'm actually in Fredericksburg for my anniversary this weekend. I'm trying to get back to hunt tomorrow afternoon. I have a tree picked out and I've got pics of deer crossing in front. We'll see what happens. Hopefully I get back in time tomorrow! You been scouting out there at all?

Well, I was able to get out to the Vine tonight. First sit in a few years felt good. I hunted a stand I've never hunted before. I have a camera up getting some does, bucks and hogs. I wanted to setup closer to the camera but no good trees. Closest I could get was about 80 yards. Had 2 doe come in about about 6:30 pm. They were at 20 yards and I needed them to turn left for a shot, they turned right... Had another 2 does come in about 7pm but they got no closer than about 60 yards. After legal shooting light, had 2 hogs walk under my tree. I could have jumped on them. Pretty cool sit tonight! I was surprised to only see one other hunter in the parking lot. And thanks to the 2 guys that passed my camera and left it alone; I appreciate it! I'll be back out there Sat PM.

The landscape has changed a lot since the flooding. The biggest difference being the height of the brush/weeds. In some spots, the weeds are literally 10+ ft tall.

Anybody else make it out this weekend?

Hey Troy -

Pretty sure those two guys were my buddies. I sent them off away from me in a different direction and they said they saw a cam out there (this was on 10/13).

It was my first time out there in about 2 years as well, and it's just crazy how tall the brush/weeds are. Nearly impossible to walk through them without killing yourself. I'm guessing the flood brought in a bunch of seeds that sprouted up.

Glad to hear your getting pics of deer out there!

If you happen to come across a blue heeler out there, please PM me! He does have his collar on.

he's the blue one in back of the photo.
Glad you got him back, but sounds like between this and Whitney, maybe you should leave the dogs at home from now on....

Thanks for your totally helpful and thoughtful response after the fact. Iíve trained dogs for 25 years, and Iíll continue to take them out there when I want to. Just like anyone and everyone else has the right to out there. And for the record, they havenít been out there during any permitted seasons when I werenít using them as blood dogs.

But thanks for taking the time to lecture pal. ďGlad you got him back, but...Ē

You arenít actually glad I got him back, and itís just you trying to interject it as a talking point. Normally I wouldnít even post about things like losing a dog for these exact same reasons. Good ole TBH, being what it normally is in 2017!

No, just seems like you have a problem keeping up with you dogs. I am glad you got him back. I would hate to lose one of mine and don't wish that on anyone.

Well considering it was 2 different dogs and I left the 12 year old one at home when I took the younger one to Whitney that I lost, I figured that it would have been fine and figured wrong.

This was the first time I lost em in hundreds of times of taking em out. Again, two different dogs. But again, thanks for pulling this thread off track from something several months ago to try to lecture me on dogs. Especially after losing one of em.

Do you do this same type of stuff to folks when they lose loved ones by coming back to rub it in and tell them what they should have done better? I sure hope not. But that seems to be why you brought up something from 3 months ago to pontificate on the subject.



Got lots of hog photos like that too. Gonna judge me for that while youíre at it?

There was no giant from GV. It was killed close to Ray Roberts. And we don’t know that it’s poached. Nobody does.

No, thatís from Whitney last year. December 26th. Shot was a little far back so I backed out and came back next morning. Dogs werenít a lotta help on that particular one because he went straight down the main trail. He wasnít very big but he was OLD. Teeth worn down.

Anyhow, my apologies for being off subject. Have a good season fellas.

What if someone had a Lone Wolf Alpha hang on and had an interest in trading for a Summit climbing stand?

It's not new. It's used but not abused. Can take some pics this weekend. It's stored at the lease with all my other extra stands and sticks. I have a set of 3 Rapid Rails that can go with it. They're not the aluminum set that weigh 10 lbs. They're the steel ones that are around 19 lbs for the set of 3.

Just throwing that out there. Will list on TBH classifieds on Monday.
