Congrats again Rey. Nice to get the first one out of the way. It's all down hill from here on out. Get back out there. There is a doe with your name on it. ( Might want to bring some binos!)

So we're you intentionally trying to pull a Dmack?

Haven't picked up a bow yet. Working on property I purchased this summer. These are a couple on camera.





I might make it to the Sam for an evening hunt or 2 during the week. Right now my stepmom is recovering from a botched surgery. In the hospital for 2 months. My mother had a stroke 2 days ago. My brother and I are taking care of my 87 year old dad since hurricane Harvey. I am trying to keep my sanity. Good Luck to you guys who get to hunt. I am hoping things get settled in my life really soon.

Of course no one can enforce these suggestions, but many people enjoy this thread. If you can't do these simple things please don't waste it for the rest of us.

This thread was awesome once upon a time. Now I'm not even comfortable going to the forest after getting a wider view of the other people out there. Too many have no clue what the laws are, or have little respect for them, which makes us all look bad. Y'all have a good season and stay safe. Pot growers have become the least of our worries out there compared to trigger happy weekend warriors

Not really. I take home every deer I shoot at. What makes it bad out there is everyone out there flinging arrows and bullets and wounding deer. Most people canít hit the broad side of a barn. Yet they are all experts during deer season.
Plus. I hunt the sam for meat for the freezer. If I wanted to hunt a big deer I go to the ranch. The sam is hard to hunt. So even a spike is a trophy. I shoot the first legal deer. Buck or die that walks out. And still have not tagged out.

Obviously - We have seen a lot of new people on the tread this year. While that is generally a good thing, it seems that 90% would rather run off at the mouth instead of being a productive member. Ebb and flow .... it is all good.

Then you get these north carolina yahoos that can't shake TX from their blood and keep coming back for more punishment. Or D's helicopter has it's own magnet effect on you. Now go kill an east coast giant

I don't miss Houston, but Texas was pretty cool. Being able to hunt the same area as you guys and then talk about it through the thread was fun. That is what I miss most about this season. I love hunting my own grounds and not worrying about yahoos, but the camaraderie is lacking.
