Meat for the freezer! Saw a little buck chasing a doe at first light. Shot this one about an hour later! Then, I rattled a nice buck in to about 50 yards. He walked the trail I came in on, broke left, winded me and trotted off. I guess he didn't get my ground scent but could smell me from the tree. Really nice morning!

It's been 5 years since I've gotten dawn for deer and didn't get drawn this year 1st time around but I just decided to look at the redraw numbers and I made it! I've been deer hunting in Oklahoma all season so I guess it's back to my old place for a bit. I hope I can recognize it - ha! See you boys around and hollar if you need some assistance finding deer - my lab is pretty good at blood trailing the vine.

If your not living in the woods right now, you wasted your permit. Deer are moving.

Nope, at this point I don't think my name ever makes it to the hat. Best of luck to the new guys and the veterans that made the cut. I hope you get that buck of a lifetime.

See, there really are no deer at Grapevine. At least according to the kill count from this thread. Probably because they’re all at the park.

Do they draw for permits to hunt at the park? When is the drawing? How long are the permits? I'd love to hunt there.

Had a good day. Well it would have been better if I was able to release an arrow at a deer. I was a little late getting out of the house this morning. I met the gentleman that put the blue markers up. I scouted a good amount of distance than I have in the past. I walked on up on someone in a tree stand as well. I found two old sheds as well.

Zilch, unless you count the skunk I ran into on the way out this evening. Seemed like I had the place to myself, but I haven't figured it out yet.
