This might sound silly but I am going to go ahead and say it....... Does anyone have a porcupine problem? The past two years we have been covered up with porcupines and we can not seem to shoot them fast enough. We run hog dogs and it was not fun pulling out quills earlier in the year from three dogs so we have put a full court press on them.[/QUOTE]


We have a few that come around and are protein hogs when they show up

I'm off 377 right before you get into Rocksprings. We got ~2.5" of rain. I've only seen one Pork so keep them over with you please.

Yeah it seems that I missed the big rain cells that went through the area but I am fortunate for what I got.

I kill a few every year. They love protein and see them at salt/mineral licks as well. They are pretty slow and easy to kill. Drive to a protein feeder at night and club them in the head with a blunt object.

Default Edwards/Real Counties 2017/2018

I’ve seen a handful over the years but not enough to say they are even a common sighting. I did watch a porcupine last January about 70’ up a Pecan tree swaying in the wind and eating pecans; pretty cool.

Got back yesterday from a quick work trip building 3 new feeder pens and enlarging two existing pens. Looked nice and green out there (thankfully) and plenty of water still in some spots of the draws.

Checked my cams and was pleased with what I saw. I recognize several of the bull elk but am still trying to figure out who a few of them are.






My main target, Pinchers, is camera shy again this year. Of course he showed up for 15 minutes in daylight when my cam was fogged over. It looks like he shed his right side and not his left, hard to tell.




Pinchers last year



Red has gotten noticeably bigger from last year, he has shown up in June-September since 2016.


And the same two WT bucks I loosely targeted last year are running together again, this year with a tranny turkey.



It should be an exciting year!

We shall see I have the OK from my Uncle to take an elk so that will certainly be the main focus. Hopefully a small guy doesn’t show up first because I’ll probably fling an arrow at the first one I can.

We were up last weekend and starting Sunday evening we had a constant drizzle for an hour or so the a few other times throughout the night.. it's much needed for sure!

Stinks you'll be working in it, hopefully more play than work! Embrace the cleetchy! Lol

You guys have fun, let us know how it goes!

Got a nice slow rain just about all weekend. Still managed to get all our feeders filled, check game cams and got some chores around the camp done. What was really nice was the amount of dove we were able to shoot. Had a really nice hunt Friday evening when the rain subsided. Ended up with 35 between 5 of us which was plenty for us to snack on through the weekend.

Got a few pictures but I am having a hard time uploading them.

That sounds like a great weekend! Glad you got yall some birds. Did you guys post up somewhere or where you having to move around to find em? We almost had to stalk them on opening weekend in different draws and on field edges etc.. they weren't flying where we were

Hunted around a caliche (not sure if that is how you spell that word or not....) pit and a water tank. I will admit two of the guys I were hunting with were great shots and were hitting them at impressive distances.

What part of the county are you in? And low fence? Just curious as to where your seeing so many awesome critters! We’re west of Rocksprings, between 377 & 55N.

I always enjoy trying to better understand the area.

Looked at leasing a big place south of Hwy55 and East of 277 over the summer that claimed to have elk. Tons of Axis and Audad I did see when looking at it.

SE part of the County and north of Camp Wood. Yes we are low fence and on some spots the fence is dilapidated enough to not be called a fence. I like learning and understanding the different areas too!

We are about 15 miles due East of you and a little south and it is quite a different story.

You have/see a lot of different critters on a regular basis and your whitetail numbers seem strong as well.

Yes we have seen everything you post pictures of but our numbers are way way down except for Aoudad which are holding steady.

Crazy to think how different the animal populations are when we are pretty much in the same area.

I put in a request to have the thread titled 'Edwards/Real Counties Hunting'

This recent rain event has been great, I imagine we've more than doubled our 2018 annual rainfall since August.

I wouldn't be surprised if we came close to doubling it. My weather station started acting funny so I didn't get any data from the last weeks worth of rain.

Who else plans on hunting opening weekend? I know I will be there.

The big 10 is a shooter for Edwards County. My guess would be 4-5 years old, would have to see him in person. The split brow buck needs at least 1 if not 2 more years.

A lot of the deer in the area look younger than they are, especially if you are use to looking at mexico deer. I would bet those are both mature deer 5.5yo.

Thank you for pointing that out. You just made my debate even stronger. I shot a old chocolate horned 8 point last year on the last weekend. My buddy walked up and said: why’d u shoot that buck for ? He is 3.5 yrs old.... I told him he is nuts for thinking that. Took him to the taxi, aged at 6.5. I wanna see him on hoof to really study him.
