I think was asking more just N/S/E/W of town just out of curiosity. Of course not like location is a risk anymore if they already know they are loosing the lease.

Pretty cool pic from our place. I walked the one on the left a few weeks ago, in hopes that he gets better next year. The one on the right will not get a pass this year if the opportunity presents itself.

Thank you everyone!

I just hope someone on our lease gets him even if it's not me. It has been tough hunting with the moon, heat and abundance of acorns. I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's pictures so far this season. This weekend will be less than ideal conditions again, but I am itching to get back in the stand. Really hoping to get at least an opportunity on a doe.

Good luck everyone this week!

That does look better. It looked like it was trending towards 85/65 to me.

So anyone get out and sit in this good weather? Or, is everyone just camping out in the texas record buck thread?

Fall is a great time to hammer in those hens if you want to reduce your [b]BOOMING[b] population.
I'd let that boys Xbow eat! Could be some good chicken fried turkey and gravy!

Pulled cards today, finally have a decent buck on camera. Short tines. Looks like a mature buck but we're still thinking there's got to be some better bucks out there. We have a TON of good looking 2 and 3 year olds...

Yeah well put the kids on hammer turkey duty for sure. They came in early like they normally do afternoons and I was hoping they would get one of the old deer to come in with them. Bobcat kept bouncing in and out and that probably didn't help.
