Lease in hardin county doesn't have much action at all. Seen a shooter buck last week and that was it, not many doe either. It's like they have disappeared.

Default Daughters buck

Thought I'd share a picture of my daughter's Trinity county buck. She made a perfect 175 yrd quartering away shot with her trusty 7mm-08. The deer actually has 13 points and is 20" wide. Proud dad here!!!

A lot of ETX leases are timber land. Some really good and some really really bad.

Lower number of hunters/acre is going to be better obviously. Do you have a particular lease in mind or just looking?

You near lake Athens? If so this buck went 187"!

Looks very similar to a local plumbers buck that was killed on Nov 4 I believe.

Same area I hunt. There is absolute giants in Harris County the problem is finding property to hunt. I tried emailing Lake Houston park in New Caney asking if in the future they would consider allowing bow hunters, but of course that got shut down fast.

Guy named Daniel Stringer that has 30-40 acres on Lake Athens Killed him.

Any other pics of him? Big body and large frame can be deceiving. He is a TOAD

I cracked up at that video. Id probably be just like that if i had history with the deer. But that was the first i had seen him and that property we hunt is only 25 acres. He probably just folllowed a hot doe in there. My chances of seeing him were pretty low.
