Well velvets been shed and bucks that you could set your watch to a month ago are nowhere to be found, which is typical. They'll be back, just ready to get the season started.

I still have a few coming by behind the house.
This fat ol 6 staked claim to my corn pile and is eating up as fast as I can dump it out. He won't get a pass this year.

Yessir, I'd shoot that sucker in a heartbeat!! Love me some big 6's and big brow tines!! Bet if you don't get him early, he won't have those brows long...
Good luck.

Looks like I will get out there his weekend finally. Already know I got a ton of work to do. Had a storm come thru back in early Aug and it looked like a bomb went off. Lost several big pin oaks, one the ladder stand is still attached to it!!! Gonna take every bit of a day to cut my way in to the feeder that was there to get it out and move. Top of a tree is on it now. Haven't had a chance to survey any other places, so no telling how many more are down!!

I


I got most of my stuff planted save a few spots. I hit this rain just right, it was way earlier than I usually like to plant but I won't have the time later in early October like usual. I got wheat, elbon, oats, winter peas, turnips, radishes and mustard greens spread out over 4 places. I just need a cold winter and hard freeze in December

I had that happen August of 2016.... I feel for you. BUT if you do it right you can make the deer go where you want. I cut the top out of one of the oaks that bottle necks them down. I gave it a shot because it made for a good excuse to not clean it all up and it worked perfectly. Deer use the heck out of it. Good luck. Q

In from Liberty county and a little Angelina NF. Not trying to get hopes up, things are looking a little above average. My Liberty county bucks usually leave the home place about now and if they don't get shot show back up about mid December. From all of the scrapes I have been seen made in the last week I believe we will have an early to mid October rut in Liberty county if we get a little cool snap. Have seen lots of light sparing already and one all out fight to determine pecking order.

I took my camper up Monday to get set up for the season. Checked a few areas and it wasn't as flooded as I expected from Harvey, but OMG the mosquitoes!!!
I have had a camera out on an area where a community scrape is every year. It has not been made as of Monday, but it's a little early. I hope to have some help setting up two more ladder stands this weekend. I have the areas and trees picked out, but I just can't do it by myself like I used to.

That's good news! I'm going to try to get back out to our Liberty County place this weekend and at least get a couple stands cleared out that did not flood... Last weekend, I had to walk into 2 of them... Pipeline I usually drive was so silted in, the further I drove, the deeper the goo got... Was alone and didn't want to stick my buggy and have to try to get it out by myself with the hurtin' back I have right now... Hopefully it will have dried out some by Saturday morning... Couple other spots as posted earlier, went completely under... Probably won't get to them this weekend... Haven't seen any scrapes/rubs yet, but then I only looked around a little bit... Weekend before, it was all under water so hopefully by this weekend some sign will start to show up...

Can't wait to get back to the property Saturday and check cameras and finish getting ready for the season (trimming limbs etc.) and then I wont be able to get back in the woods until the first weekend in November. I'm still going to try to find a time to slip out there tho.
This time of year always seems to be the longest, just a few more weeks to go!!!!

Went to my lease last weekend (Tyler county). All the water has drained off and the mosquitos were horrible. Definitely got my use out of the thermocell. Due to the weather, I've had a late start on getting ready this year. Nothing on camera yet except birds, but I did notice the acorns are starting to drop so hopefully the deer will begin to travel their usual path soon.

Post em up. It's just some of the hill country, south Texas crew that hate because they are jealous you consistently get more mature bigger deer than them in a part of the state they know they couldn't hunt. Ignore them and post em up!
