Default Anybody see this buck on the hoof this season?

I had a lot of trail camera picks of him in the summer and into October but after getting drawn for Grapevine, I stopped hunting the Grasslands. I'm curious to know if he made it or if anyone else saw him.

Was he on 41?

Grapevine was frustrating but I can't complain about getting to hunt monster bucks 20 minutes from my house. I hunted hard, saw 2 shooter bucks all year, killed a doe, shot a hog, saw quite a few hogs and coyotes.

I had trail camera pics of shooter bucks walking by my stands in daylight (night as well) while I wasn't there, which was very frustrating. I would then hunt those stands and see nothing. I never heard of anyone shooting a buck out there this year, so who knows what was killed.

I learned some new spots, spent time in the woods and got some meat for the freezer, so I can't complain. I didn't shoot anything at all last year, so getting something on the ground was pretty satisfying.

Anybody know units that tend to hold turkey? I've never killed a turkey and really want to. I've heard turkeys once at the G Lands but never seen any on the hoof.

Of course I haven't seen any turkey out there until today and I found four of them! At least we walked out of there with a hog

Troy, there are quite a few turkey on the vine. Have walked up within 15 yards of a flock of 10 in the area we hunt there before. Didn’t have my release for some reason so tried to finger shoot. Didn’t work out well.

That's good to know. I've heard of them on private property backing up to the Vine and I've heard them once but never seen any on the hoof or trail camera. I will definitely give it a try though.

What is the vine? No I'm not going to poach your spot :-) I like mine.

Grapevine Lake. You can hunt there but it's on a draw system. Nice deer there as well.

You have to be drawn for turkey?

You have to be drawn for deer. You can kill turkey on the general permit, I believe.

If you don't mind walking, or riding a bike, behind the main horse camp (Tadra Point). They had the road that went around the backside closed off last time I was up there. There are a bunch of birds back there. Also, units 8 and USED to be good. I haven't hunted up there in a few years.

Thank you!
