The hunting policy states "antler restrictions are in force". If you read the antler restriction policy set by TPWD it states that only one legal buck measuring at least 13" may be harvested per season.

Antler restrictions, not bag limits...the lake has 50 mld buck tags...it dosent matter if all 50 of those bucks are taken by 1 hunter or if 50 hunters shoot 1 each.

I'd Ask Brad before you shoot a 2nd buck.

Then post and let us know!

To me it would seem each buck requires 1 doe, so if you shot 2 does you can get 2 bucks, but that's just a guess.

I'd personally just call Brad or call the office and ask.

Let me know if we can shoot unlimited bucks after 1 doe ;-)....but i doubt it.
They way they said it was you had to get a doe to get a buck tag....Tag is singular.

But I don't know for sure, never been in that situation. I've only gotten Does at the lake so far. I did see some nice shooters --- when I could not shot them! Dang smart deer.

Last few times ive been out they are moving late and sticking to the trails.

If you have any flexibility in your spot move down the trail they are using to come in to give yourself extra time.

I will be there all weekend, still trying to find a flipping doe to shish kabob. At least it will not be so darn cold, although they will not move as much.

Yeah, I can relate. Frustrating.. been my whole season like that with doe this year too. Working on my new "brush busting arrow" for next season. So far the problem is creating a launcher smaller than the bed of my truck. Not sure if a ballista fits the approved TPWD list of archery equipment though...

Archer guy. We wont see much anymore. I have dozens of pics of a guy and so does txbowhunter. He hangs around my feeder about an hr or so a couple times a week with a bag a chair and shotgun. Havnt seen one deer since he started showing up. I pulled my gear out today and found that he or someone took a knife to my popup and pushed my feeder over to dump piles of corn. I think its a poacher. He never allows camera to get his face.

That is disconcerting to say the least dodgeman. So sorry to hear that. Especially about damage to your pop up. No excuse for that at any time. I thought something was up. All my deer pics have been nocturnal for a couple weeks now. I do have a picture of a guy in camo and lots of gear from a couple weeks ago, about the time everything went nocturnal. Looked like he did not care there was feeder there. I will pm his picture when I can get it back up to see if you recognize him. I have had that "uncomfortable" feeling for a while. Even checked my stand to see if someone had been sitting in it. So, are you guys done hunting? Sure hate to see that. Just checking so I will know if I am out there by myself now. Have you told Brad and the game warden?

I posted a couple on the ctb fb page. He has been on 3 different cameras. We are in 9b and the cameras he is on i spread from one end to the far north on lake property. I know its public hunt land but gessh i would respect others spits if i see them. If i see a stand or feeder while dove or rabbit hunting i back out and go a different way.

Saw a deer with arrow sticking out of it side look like the hind leg when I was walking back to truck this evening. It was standing on the edge of the tree line. I only saw it because the arrow had a green lighted knock that caught my eye. When I shined my light at it it ran off but with a hop limp. Funny thing there where no other hunters tonight so I think it was shot it a back yard illegally.

I think most of us that follow this forum except for a couple of guys have killed at least one. I killed a few.

Going out one more time in the morning. It has been a good season! I wonder how long they'll give us to pull out blinds and feeders?

Debating that. Went last night and saw a bobcat and birds. Nice and comfy weather though. Camera has not shown a daylight deer visit in over a couple weeks. Plenty at night, but not every day. Sporadic now. We had that guy busting our spreads and sitting at our feeders for a while out here, and the deer sightings virtually evaporated. Confirmed that when I got home and reviewed camera shots last night. Turns out he is a small game hunter. Must have traipsed through every bedding area too. Supposedly that issue has been dealt with, but activity in my area has been compromised it seems. So that is impacting my decision, along with other commitments. I asked Brad if he would extend the season a couple weeks till it gets cold again like last year, and things settle down, but he declined. Waxing long here and rambling. Answer is I may be out for another sit, but my confidence level is rather low at this point....

Just went out there at lunch to throw down the rest of my corn. I did hear some activity in the wet weather creek 75 yards from me. I will be there tomorrow morning and possibly tomorrow evening. Last chance for me.

Did not make it out on Friday or Saturday due to work, and family commitments. Picked up my feeder and camera today. Many pix, just none in the daytime. So it looks like I did not miss anything in those two days. Deer were really nocturnal in my area the last three weeks or so. On to preparing for next year.

Does anybody know when we're supposed to have our feeders and blinds out? I haven't received an email like I have in years past, but it's possible I just missed it.
