I've been hunting here for 6 or 7 years steady and off and on for 20 years and never seen one. This year I've seen 3 or 4 and they come to the feeder just like deer

They are cool critters! We got a bunch up here in Karnes and live oak. Snare 6 or 8 a year and see plenty more sign. One is a camera hog, rolls In the dirt and plays at the feeder regularly. Craziest thing.

Here is the bobcat I shot this afternoon. I nailed the skin on a piece of backboard and covered on salt. I am watching some YouTube videos on how to tan the hide to make a rug with it.

Just had a wierd unexplainable experience with lights on lease property at about 1 am. Sheriff's Deputy witnessed them, as well. Border patrol found nothing. Freer area. Lights seemed to taunt sheriff deputy. They covered ground way too fast.

5.5 mainframed 8's get culled without hesitation.. weak brow and missing brow (not broke), and the crab claw gets him smoked even faster.
Cool deer none the less... the hollow spot in his mainbeam and his width gives him character that she wants him mounted...so hes getting a shoulder mount.

Hello,
Like a lot of people, I'm looking for a new lease for 2017-2018. I currently hunt by San Ignacio on a 9000acre place, but planning on getting off. If anyone knows of anything coming open please let me know. If needed I can fill multiple spots.
Thanks,
361-215-3690 Jimmy

Headed back next weekend.
A couple of guys were there this weekend. Movement was slow even with the cold weather.
They had to do some plumbing repairs after the pipes from the well froze.

Last deer of the year for me. Shot this 5.5 yr old main frame 9 pt at my college roommates (in laws) ranch in Frio County. Great weekend with some old friends and the bow buck was a great bonus!
