Killed this buck on late Friday evening. Looks like hes been fighting. He was 137 lbs before field dressing. Now i have to decide if he's gonna be a shoulder or nice euro on driftwood.

When I lived in that area in the mid 80’s, use to see some decent deer between the Cedar Creek store back towards Elroy.

Nothing to get excited about on deer. You are right, the hogs are out of control on our place. I bet the deer are much better on that side with the river.

There are some big deer but are very hard to hunt. They will not touch a feeder. I've learned how to hunt without feeders out there. They will come to hand corn. That's what this big ole boys mistake was.

Congrats - great deer! I also hunt in String prairie area/Bastrop county and I believe although there are not a ton of deer there is some potential for some big bucks.
