Had some awesome sits out at Benbrook this year but just couldnt seal the deal. Good luck to the third group of deer hunters. I do believe the rut just started and the full moon is going to make for some tough hunting. Be safe out there!

My 15 days started today. Hope to free up this weekend. I'm sure it'll be packed with hunters. From reading the posts above it looks promising.

I actually live in Rendon, just South of 1187/Stephenson Levy.

Straight shot to the Benbrook hunting areas.

I didn't see anyone out there this morning. Brought a pop up blind but might change that up. It was a lot to hike in at 545a and setup. I had to leave for work and jumped a doe while scouting and watched another one with the binos.

Lots of deer signs.

I think I'm addicted.

We hunted our two weeks and didn't get a shot but saw quite a few. We had one fat 6 come in within 15 yards but he would have had to work to get 10". Both sides were kind of wonky. Probable older than the horns would indicate and needs to be culled. Good luck to those that are still hunting.

Thanks for sharing your hunt PIOBill - maybe next time you will get a shot off. there were lots of little bucks running wild out there this year. interesting to see how the rut goes and who gets what out there.

I hunted this morning a few hours until wife had to go into work. Saw a few doe but nothing close to me.

I'm going to give it another whirl this afternoon.

Stick with it wikid. Opportunity will come! Corn 20 yards out is a good place to start.

Talk to text fail... dear/deer. Seriously though, it's overcrowded, deer population isn't that great, genetics aren't that good. Save yourself the time and focus on somewhere more worthwhile....

I'm being facetious... it's a great place. There is one issue, but I'm not sure the best solution. People are notified they have been drawn well in advance of their hunt which is great for planning, but for those with early hunt segments, like myself last year and a couple years before, you have people come through scouting prior to their hunt segments while you're on stand. It's not a huge area, and it doesn't really take a seasoned guide to find the prime habitat. I had a couple hunts last year, during the first two week segment, where guys walked right by my set during prime time hours scouting.

That is one of the drawbacks when hunting in public land. If would be nice if the personnel only allowed scouting on non hunting days. It would be difficult to enforce but theoretically it would work.

Not only the scouters but also people out riding horses if the weather is nice. It is a challenge to hunt out there but nice place to hunt. I enjoy it because im 15 minutes away!
