Should've called in Caleb Hill for tracking

I don't think you can use a dog at Amistad.

I shot a ram that Friday after thanksgiving on private property, and he crossed into a park hunt area. Caleb made a call into the game warden, and park guy. They both gave us the green light to take the dog in to try and recover. Hope this helps you in the future.

Well, I wish I would have known that, I had a dog available to me. I just figured it was one of those federal rules they wouldn't budge off of.

Might wanna check with the GW, and Park Ranger. I was told it wasn't something they wanted to advertise, but it's kinda crazy to not extend every tool in recovering a wounded animal.

I am interested in hunting Amistad with a partner that is familiar with the area. Iím not completely new to Amistad and have seen a lot of the hunt areas from the water. Anybody going to make a trip out there in the near future?

I might be out there at the end of January, or middle of Feb. I would say hunt area 4 or 5, but go in by boat.

Did you make it back out? Any luck out there? Seems like there is still good deer movement in some areas of the county.

I'm embarrassed to report we had plenty of deer movement but no connections. Every buck I have ever shot at out there has completely ducked my arrow so I finally decided I'd overcome my mental block and start aiming low just underneath them. So nice clean 30 yard shot I aim low, and the deer just stands there looking at me so my slick trick slams into the rocks under/behind him and he runs off. Fast forward a couple days and I get another opportunity, this time I'm sitting there staring at the clouds and hear a rock kick over, look over and a small buck is standing in my shooting lane 30 yards away kinda casually looking at me. I freeze, he stares for a minute then bounces over and down the hill right in front of a bush I'd ranged at 42 yards. No problemo! Put my 40 yard pin on him and let it fly... uhhh forgot to account for the steep downhill angle and it went over his back. I knew immediately after I released I messed up. 20 minutes later my wife gets a shot at a spike that she misjudged the yardage for, she had all the bushes marked for distance and mistook the 30 yard bush he was standing by for the 20 yard bush. That evening I hunted a different spot for a fresh start, heard chewing behind me and turn to my right to find a decent tall 8 point walking out from behind me... only problem he was about 3 yards away and if I were holding an arrow could have literally touched him with it if I leaned over just a tad. He stood there next to me for a full legitimate 2 minutes as I was afraid to breathe and scared to death. He was looking out over this flat I was hunting before he walked out into it, drool string hanging down from the corner of his lip and I could see the muscles flexing in his jaw though he wasn't chewing he was kind of grinding his teeth or something. For a moment I thought wow he might actually walk past me far enough that if I get a plane to fly over or a train goes by I could draw back and get a shot. Right about then he casually starts looking around, looks to his right looks down and casually looks over at me... then he does the "chicken head" and I swear he jumped like a kangaroo doing a backflip probably 10 yards out in a single dead leap and he was gone gone gone flames coming from the bottom of his hooves as he bolted away lol. Our other buddy got busted several times in a row over in his spot and I guess he got tired of it so walked around a bit without any opportunities presenting themselves.

edit: Oh, about the jumping the string/ducking thing. Neither of the deer I shot at moved at all when I let them fly this time. After my last trip I switched my arrows out from FOB's to NAP Hellfire fletching. It's looking like the FOB's air noise may have been the culprit for all the ducks I've experienced in the past. I wish I would have tried changing them out sooner as 3 years ago I let one fly at a real nice buck that did the "Bambi on ice" belly to the floor before my arrow flew over him.

^^^^ Nothing to be embarrassed about. Sounds like there was a lot of action out there. Sadly, my back continues to keep me from going out there so it's been a forgettable season for me.

I had never seen Axis deer at Amistad. They are not on the list but I don't see why not, they are exotics.

I checked at the office about the axis. If they're not on the list, you cannot shoot. I asked them to put them on the list.

I've read this entire thread. Deepest thanks for all the good info. I doubt I'll get a chance to go before January of 19 but I'm considerably encouraged by all of the hunters posting. Best of luck this season.

Lake should be coming up considerably with the recent rains I'd imagine. Hopefully not too much because I'd like to be able to launch at Spur 454.

Lake is up almost 3 feet... It was close to 1081 elevation and it's now at 1083.8... That is still a bit lower than what would close down the 454 ramp... We will see as there is still water coming down the rivers and supposedly we have more rain coming...

Found that because every Tom **** and Harry has a boat nowdays and ALL of them think 4 is the only place to go it gets ridiculously crowded. I've had so many ruined hunts actually change my pattern after Friday morning I'll take the boat to the back side of Area 5 or 1. Get setup and let the walk-in hunters push the deer right to me.

That is strange since they are a non regulatory animal. You should be able to shoot them on public land, anytime of the year. Just like hogs.

They were added to the list for the 2018/2019 season after they were spotted in the designated hunting land last year .!

Your welcome gentle men. I hope to get up there when the weather cools, but it's a 7 hr drive that's worth it. Love that place.

Looks like it was maybe skinned and quartered? 3 carcasses, peeps been busy! Then again I talked to a guy last year at the boat ramp, said he and his buddy shot and drew blood from 6 bucks that week and recovered zero. Told me all about shooting one running, a 65 yard shot, shot through brush, blah blah blah. Thought he was full of poo til I went back and walked through where he told me he was hunting while on the way to my normal area and sure enough blood trails and orange tape everywhere. I didn't see a single deer in that whole unit for the 3 days I could tolerate until moving to a different unit.
