Anyone have any info on unit 8,9 and 1. Just curious to find out if they are crowded? And don’t want to walk up on anyone’s set up.
I have hunted TBR a few years back and had good luck. I’m back to hunting public land for awhile. Was out by unit 9 yesterday and there was one guy there walking around.
I live in Angelo in the Santa Rita area. I will be in a 2017 Chevy 2500 with Pennsylvania plates ( and no I’m not from there. Lol work truck)

9 is super crowded but I saw deer. Hunted area 1 2 years ago and got a doe. Think it's crowded by the island

Area 9 is crowded and area 8 seems to be dead this year. Haven't had much movement in area 8. There's also some low life POS huntin in 8. He's been huntin my setup which I don't like but can't do anything about it but they stole my camera too that ticks me off more than anything

Yea that’s BS. I drove by 8 the other day and there were 2 trucks parked there. I’m just trying to find somewhere out of the way to hunt religiously and don’t want to set up on top of someone. Wasn’t going to hunt this year because our lease sold. but I started getting the bug. Lol

Anyone have any luck this morning? I didn't make it out, but it's pretty warm, so I'm curious what the deer movement was like!

Last week when I was out there I saw a bunch of doe and a few bucks in area 5. Nothing big but decent size. I just couldn't get a clean shot on any of them. I'm not sure how it is now with the guns kickin off but if anyone is looking for a decent area, it is worth a look. O yea, I saw a ton of Javi tracks but never got a glimpse of one.

Unit 4 has a large hunting area. Seen plenty of deer by the river. Plenty of room there to set up shop and stick something

I was sick to my stomach when I wasnít finding my arrow or much blood. Took me 3hrs to find the first sign of blood. Not much at that. Time to train my birddog into a blood tracking dog.

That was my first buck with a bow. I have only been deer hunting for 3 years and am so hooked. I am absolutely a bow man and really want to thank some fellow hunters for assistance and guidance. JD Verfurth and Jeremy Granado have been amazing and always willing to answer questions about TBR and deer hunting in general.

Whoop Whoop!!! H-ell yeah Howard! If you thought you were addicted before; well now that you've drawn blood the feeling will only get worse! You'll spend every waking hour thinking about sticking a deer with a bow! What did you think about that noise when the arrow hit that buck?? SHWHACK!! It will become one of your most favorite sounds in the entire world! I know your wife is probably over the moon about your bow harvest! Again Congratulations Bro!

Any hunting on twin buttes you need the annual hunting permit. Hogs don't need tags but think there's a certain season on twin buttes

The wound on his back was several days old. It was dry and hard crusted over.
