I appreciate the offer...and as long as the arrow doesn't leave my property I can kill deer on a small tract correct? It's not in city limits and no restrictions on it

Dont think so but double check with county commissioners office see if WILCO has the 10 Ac rule. The rule your looking for talks about discharging a firearm on less than 10AC and will go on to call even archery equipment a "firearm". That would stop you from hunting or even target practice.

Thanks for info I called commissioners office and they directed me to Sheriff's Office ..the deputy told me that Wilco has not adopted the 10-acre rule and it is legal for bow or firearm as long as the projectile doesn't leave my property... but according to the link you sent I need to make sure I'm at least three and a half miles outside of City Limits I guess

just checked...looks like I am in the etj zone...

I hunt down near Russell Park and had a guy on camera wandering around my feeder and stand. I am well off any walking paths so just keep an eye on your equipment. I have locks on all of my equipment. Not sure what he was doing but hung around for about 15 minutes. I have a picture of him but not sure how to post it. I have been hunting the same spot for 3 years and have never had anyone on camera.

Just checked cameras and last 3 days deer have gone 100% nocturnal. First that has happened since I put camera up.

I moved so I wouldn't have any issues with this guy again. I'm not getting a lot of doe pictures though some okay bucks nothing impressive, but I'm more interested in the does anyways I love venison. Hoping they start to show up more often.

Have you checked your camera last few days? All of a sudden mine have gone nocturnal about 4 days ago. They were pretty predictable last 60 days.

That usually happens around the time they rub off there velvet so I am not surprised at all. I checked it on Sunday and it was 75/25 night/day pictures which was pretty good but I suspect it to change or has changed to 90/10 or so give or take 5percent

Agree... My experience is that they get very sensitive to 90+ degree days this time of year. It's been a hot week.

I think most cams would show a move to predawn/postdark.

Its all acorns right now. I have about 20 deer that come into the yard every morning and evening. They are still around and still eat the corn but do so when they are near it only. They are just eating acorns and there are a lot of them on the ground within the last week. The opening of the season will be slow and it will get better toward the end of October and early November.

There is not just one reason the patterns have changed. Hormones change, batchelor groups will begin to break up soon. Tempatures are still warm and winter coats are starting to grow so cooler night tempatures are more bareable. The fall crops are all beginning to ripen including acorns dropping, although they are bitter and less sought after right now. The further we get into fall the riper the acorns will get making them more and more sought after. Not to mention next weekend is opening weekend and the increased human presence and hunting pressure will also play a role in less daytime movement. All of these factors play a role in these pattern changes and are part of making the whitetail deer so hard to hunt, but also makes it more fun as you piece the puzzle together and figure out what these animals may or may not do next. Shoot straight, make ethical shots and good luck to everyone next weekend.

Anyone know if we are going to get spike tags this year?

We were given the green light on 9/19 last year, so they should know about tags by now.

Email from Brad

"For this season, due to a reduced number of buck permits, you WILL NOT be able to harvest spikes prior to a doe until November 4th. After November 3rd, spikes may be harvested prior to a doe but, as always, will not count toward an exemption for the next season. Doe=exemption."

NO 14 is behide the office and a subdivision west of BD Woods and Brad sent out a warning with the check in schedule in the email the other day see below.


"Also, for those hunting in unit 14 please make sure you have consent from the landowner (or developer) before crossing private property. We (and Georgetown Police) have had complaint."

Careful around the heb gate, while out scouting I found what was either a homeless guys camp or a place where the teenagers from the neighborhood go to party. A few torn up fold up chairs, bunch of beer cans and bottles, cigarette butts and the left overs of a camp fire. A lot of it looked pretty old, no one was around when I went in the middle of the day. Found it probably a week before the Saturday morning rules meeting haven't gone back to that area tho. I told the ranger where it was after the meeting.

Had 6 up close and personal, but racer fell and screamed up on the trail. They always seem to have a race opening weekend. Might as well have been a string of firecrackers going off. Heading out on a business trip until next weeeknd, maybe then.... good luck everyone!!!
