Good movement this afternoon. Had a 3 year old 10 pointer harassing some doe, a 5 year old 9 pointer not paying attention to anything but eating corn on the Sendero. It should kick off by next week.

Rut is on in McMullen County! Had a fun hunt yesterday afternoon. Back at it this AM. Trying to help a buddy find a shooter. We have him in a blind where we have a nice buck on camera recently but these deer a running all over the place so he may be hard to pattern

Raining good in Webb county. It was a slippery drive to the blind. Took a bit to get in, but I guess that was enough time for the guests that were sleeping in the blind to leave. Would be nice if they would take their trash with them.

The rut can be brutal...

Earlier this week, typical 12 probably scoring in the 160ís.



Today with a broken main beam...




Some of our group was disappointed as they were targeting him.

On the other hand I donít think heís hit his full potential and could be an absolute beast next season.

I plan on making another trip and will probably head down January 1st. I wonder if the bucks will be back together or still finishing up the rut?

I've killed rutting bucks around new years before.

I'll be heading back around the same time. Spent 12 days down there getting home today empty handed.

Itís my 5th trip to South Texas since September 20th with one to San Saba and 3 trips to Beaumont sprinkled in. Been a long but fun season and will probably skip out on the last weekend of deer season because Iím tired of driving lol. Probably spent close to 45 sits in the stand this deer season between morning and afternoon hunts.
