Well on my way to work today i saw a big buck running thru a clearing in a neighberhood here in Del Rio right by Tractor supply so im guessing it is about that time when we need to be in the satands/blinds as much as possible!!!.
good luck out there may your sight stay sharp and your hands stay still !!!

We are off Dolan creek road a little ways, go about 10 miles down Dolan creek road and then turn off and take ranch roads about another 10 miles to the north.

Had been out there personally but the guys I hunt with said they are starting to move pretty good but still not rutting yet. Little bucks are trying to chase does they said but does still aren't ready. Later this week or next week should be rutting.

I just got back Tuesday night. My brother killed an 8 that was previously wounded. All 3 of us saw shooters but nobody connected. Thinned a few hogs out.
I didn't see any bucks chasing does and nothing came to horns except a couple scrubs. But we are south and west of yall. Can't get back till after Christmas. Hopefully some late does will be coming into heat as I was still seeing fawns really late this year.

I just found this thread.

My family's place is down the Miers Ranch road just north of the border patrol checkpoint on 277.

Saw some young buck activity over Thanksgiving. Been here this week since wednesday. Watched a nice 8 and young 6 try their hardest to run does but the chase didnt last very long and all came back to the feeders. Looks like the does are finished, until secondary rut starts.

My and my kiddo are heading out there Sunday morning. I sure hope this slight cold front coming will kick up some movement. Haven't been to the ranch since last January but family that has gone out there said it's all been so green that the bucks weren't really coming to the feeders at all. Hoping to get my kiddo a repeat of her 2011 cull.

Baby girl got it done. Not the biggest deer on the ranch but I could not tell her no after sitting through that cold. He could have gone another couple of years but the look on her face was worth it!Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1387845017.135730.jpg

As far as rut activity, we did not witness any. Had a young 8 pointer feeding calmly with 3 does for almost 2 hours before the 9 my kiddo shot ran off the 8. However, in the 13 mile drive from Comstock to our gate I saw 6 road kills including one little fork not 10 feet from our gate. He stunk to high heaven. Don't know where all the turkey vultures are but nothing was eating that guy.

Did manage to take a nice 8 with a rifle. Can't get a picture to upload.
