I personally would not leave it out there unless its in bad shape. Too easy to steal or vandalize and the sun and wind will do a number on it. Plus most of them set up quick and easy so its not much hassle.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. It is brand new, just bought it when I was home on R&R in Nov. Just wonder how the deer will react to it come deer season.

If you selectively chose a location for the popup, it will have a minimal impact. I've got two setups where I clears some cedar branches on the back side of the trees and then placed the popup in between the trees. Use some 550 cord to tie back branches that may interfere with the shot. When done hunting, let the branches go back in place. Since I only shoot out one corner of the blind, I can get away with quite a bit. Just make sure to set out the blind to let it air out. I took about a week for mine to stop smelling like nylon or whatever they used. Above all, scent control going in, you have to play the wind.

Man that sucks they won't let you ship your bow. I was gonna order one from whoever it is that has the offer i seen. can't remember now. but i was afraid i wouldn't be able to get it home. i know on our list of items you can't take back are ALL non mtoe weapons. this even includes bb guns. so that might be the reason.

When you due back. I got till June.. and i can't wait.

Thanks for the tips. I'm planning on setting my pop-up up, when i get home and launching some arrows from it. I've never shot from a blind before. so it will defiantly get aired out..

Take care of your back side my friend. The piggies are on they're "guess what time we're gonna show up and on what day" summer routine so you aren't missing much. Might get some rain tonight, so if we do, that might get them moving. It does seem to be a good year for turkeys, but I have not been out at all. Matt's the man when it comes to Hood hunting for most anything. He puts in his time and reaps the reward. Take care of your self Jason and get back asap.

It's kind of cut out the inside of a couple trees or bushes and put the pop up inside the cut out. I'll take a couple pictures next time out if I remember. That way it's protected from the elements and cows. The cattle will walk right over a pop-up if it's between them and where they want to go. They don't have "walk around it" in there repertoire. If you happen to be in it, oh well ...... So, put it in a bush or behind a tree and your good.

It'll scare the not out of you! Been there, done that. Fortunately the cow was on the right side and I was on the left. All that being said, pop ups work well and you can get a year, or more, out of one if you set it up in a protected spot. Got me a brandy new one that I'm gonna put someplace. Don't got a clue where just yet.

You are right about that! We cooked some axis and whitetail backstrap for a taste test and the axis took it. Some really good meat. This is the axis that eluded me last year. Lost his horns half way through the season and only saw him without them. Always next year....

Is there any areas on Fort Hood that might be good for bowhunting deer that do not get a lot of hunting pressure? The area I tried last year was always booked up or closed because of training. I really want to try and start scouting a couple of areas but Hood is so large I was hoping someone might could narrow the options down. Thanks for any advice.

I'm looking for the same thing. Hopefully I can get lucky during the first week of bow season. I am taking the week off. Maybe get done early and then go after the hogs.

I would call that wishful thinking. There are a lot of hunters that call Ft Hood home. You have to be like Ed and get off of the beaten path to find a secluded area. Even then, nothing is guaranteed.

Lance That is the bad thing about area access. We don't find out what area will be open or closed until Thrusday. You know I work year around in my guided area and last year 45 was not open for most of Nov.and 46 was closed quite a few weekends, but we did not find out until Thursday. I would be nice to see a units long range training schedule but we don't get that.

One place that may work is 8N. I've frequently seen deer (and pigs) there, but have never done a real scout of it or set out any cameras so don't know the quality of the resident beasties.

A couple other areas that I'd given some thought to, but have not really researched, are the ones adjacent to the airport. Can't think of the numbers right off. Anyhow, they are fenced and you need to get the keys from the Sportsman's Center which should limit the competition some.

Then there are the no feeder, no stand areas. Scout them to find where the deer normally travel, and the day of your hunt hand throw some corn to entice them to stop for a bite. A piece of camo cloth and some spring clips can make a nice blind.

It doesn't say one way or the other. So I guess you could. But I don't think I would. I'm pretty gutsy when it comes to putting out my camera's, but those areas have just way too much non-hunter traffic for me to take the chance. Well, maybe with one that I have. The squirrels have pretty much made it look like trash. They seem to like to chew on it. Must be something in the plastic, or salt from my sweaty hands. Takes good pictures still, but looks terrible. You don't need a camera to see where the deer are going to walk anyway. Google earth will tell you all you need to know. Just look for the tree lines between open areas. That'll be your deer routes. Deer are predictable that way. Pigs .... another story altogether .... they'll head off across open country, so are pretty random.

Alright, I know there probably aren't many baseball fans on here, but there should be. It's great training for sitting in a stand waiting for something to happen. If there's any inkling of interest in your soul at all, check out the Texas Rangers. Nine and one on the young season. They're pitching has been awesome which means even better practice for sitting waiting for something to happen. Baseball really is good practice for sitting in a tree, try it (a few Shiner's or Lone Stars are a good training aide.)

Hank, I know you're right. I guess I shouldn't complain and just be happy to get in an area when I can. I really want to get a deer with a bow and I'm thinking to concentrate more on bowhunting this year. As long as the smoke pole temptation doesn't get the better of me.

Take the map that the sportsmans center issues you. Identify the area your interested in on it. Then you should be able to translate that to Google Earth.

Actually, once you are familiar with the Killeen area on Google, it gets pretty simple.

Like anything else, practice helps a lot.

Google earth is your best friend.

Let me see if I can work something up real quick.

See the tree line paralleled by the tire tracks. This year a deer was taken off each end. They use the tree lines to travel between areas.

You know, it's probably a throw back to my Indian genes or something, but I just don't schedules and people very well. Always glad to help by remote control though. Give me a few and check your pm. I need to grab a beer (it's biblical, despite what they say) and get situated (get on another computer) first.

It really doesn't matter what area your in. You just follow the tree lines and your good. The tree line around a clearing or between clearings. Both work, it doesn't matter. Deer are, for the most part, creatures of the edge.

Texas is a bit tougher because there's no snow. We always had snow. But, if it's a wet year, Texas has mud/soft dirt.

I need this wind to lay down so I can do some fishing.

Not even close.

Just guessing, but think maybe the Fort Hood map may be using MGRS coordinates and Google Earth is using Degrees, Minutes and Seconds. My best guess; been there, done that.

This old man is hittin the skid. Night all.

There should be areas on both sides of 190. Got the area with the two tanks just north of Watercrest. Then you got the areas over by Clark road.

3D shoot this Sunday in Lampasas. Don't forget the bug spray when you are packing. Also, do not forget the following items:

Bow
Arrows
Release
Quiver
Binos

Sorry Kevin, could not resist. Hope is all is going well on the dark continent.

Tim I was going say something but since Kevin is not even in the country was going to give him a break.

Just a reminder for Kevin that even though he is not here, we are still thinking about him. Plus, thinking back to last month puts a smile on my face thinking about the ribbing he got that day.

Those fish are some good eats. Went to Wyoming a couple summers ago and caught a mess load of trout. Can't wait to get back there and do it again. Wouldn't mind getting some nice cats out of Texas either.
