Default Pulled trail cards (not happy)

So I pulled trail cards today since the last day of general buck season and I'm not happy at all. The big four point cull I was hunting has made several daytime appearances on multiple feeders since I last hunted. He never broke daylight once in season and now he's everywhere. Here's one pic I got of him:

Next up I had some illegal immigrants roll through a couple days ago, not very happy with how many it is. I'll be hunting tomorrow morning for a spike and I'll definitely be packing some heat with me. They usually don't mess with hunters but you never know what they'll do. Name:  IMG_1589.jpg

Right there they are following our sendero north east, about 80 more yards to our blind and it heads straight north. That's the most likely route they took.

If it were the first two guys I would have let it go a little easier as we had a couple guys last year on another property but this is ridiculous.

I know they saw all our cameras, there's one about 60 yards down this sendero watching a major trail and they were looking right at it when it took their picture. Glad they weren't messing with our stuff and chose to mind their business.

We saw them several times hunting in Hidalgo & Starr Counties. Mostly they're just trying to get farther north. Whenever they found out we were in the area, they took off.

Yea I know they most likely are way farther north by now it's just weird knowing that could've happened when I was there.

This four point has drove me crazy this season, he's in and out of cameras all season but only pops up at night. General season finishes and he shows himself in the daylight.!

Here's some more pics of him, just an older deer that needs to get taken out. He's the biggest four I've ever seen and hopefully I'll get him next year. Name:  IMG_1596.jpg

Glad I don't hunt near the border! Build the wall as deep as it is high!

That 4pt looks like a 1.5 yr old IMO. Glands aren't even dark. Not saying he isn't a Cull but don't think he is old. Have any better side view pics of him?

Good luck tomorrow morning!

We never had any trouble with the large groups rolling through, they always seems fairly benign. Backpacks are probably food and some water.

Good luck on the hunt, hopefully not too much human scent and noise in the area.

I know he's not old but I say he is because I should have taken him at the beginning of the season like I had planned. Now he made it another year and most likely passed his genes so there will be more like him running around.

I hunted a buddies place for a week in Del Rio. Numerous encounters with illegals, not to mention 2 young girls playing volleyball around camp had one walk up to them, they knew to run inside but it still could have easily been worse. I enjoyed the hunting, but just couldn't enjoy myself due to constantly worrying about my family in other blinds. There are some dang good deer as well as aoudad in that area!

Thanks river rat, unfortunately I think he was shot this season. The four point he's always with has been at my feeders all the time now and he is nowhere to be seen. Hopefully I'm wrong and I can bring him back in during the off season.
