Well didn't get a chance to hunt this weekend but got to pull cards. Mature bucks aren't touching the corn right now but all the other deer are. We counted are bucks that were on camera and made sure not to double up. With 5 feeders and 6 cameras running over two sections we counted 53 bucks give or take 5. Nothing to impressive and only two mature ones showed up on camera the last two weeks. Not worried they always start showing up in November. Just hoping some of these young ones will hang out for a couple of years

We finally got the rest of our fall plot in last night with rain in the forecast. The radishes we planted a couple of months ago are over a foot tall now and we planted more last night along with turnips, canola, and triticale. Our first camera wasn't working so we do not have pictures yet, but there are some huge tracks in the milo. I'd like to see if the size of the deer match the horns. We also found some nice sheds with a tractor tire a few weeks ago.
Hoping to get in the field this weekend to try and kill something!!!!!

Well, nothing super fancy but I am proud of my son.

After my father passed away 4 years ago my oldest son decided he was going to learn to shoot his grandfathers bow, with the ulitmate goal of shooting a deer with it. It has been kind of a long off and on process since he doesn't have a good place to shoot where he lives. Last year he put an arrow in a really nice buck but we lost it after a long tracking job.

That made my son more determined than ever.

His first hunt of this year (Monday) he wanted to get some meat in the freezer early. This big doe came in and gave him the opportunity. After last years debacle he did not want a repeat. He drew and let down on her 3 times before he shot her. I would say the shot placement worked out all right this time though.

Now he is ready to start seriously hunting a buck we have on camera.

You and your family are on fire.
Giant hogs, a truckload of coyotes and now filling the freezer.
A good season for y'all already.
Congrats Jeff.

The last 2 weeks have been good to us for sure Clark.

Of course, you didn't do too shabby yourself.

To top it off, when we went out to work to field dress my sons doe, there was a beautiful bobcat sitting right in the middle of my 200 yard rifle range. I gave her a ride in the truck as well.

It's been a good year for sure. That is my second triple this year. The one earlier this spring was a solo triple, and those are really rare for me. On that stand I called a pair and killed both, then 5 minutes later a second pair rolled in and I got one of them. I nearly, nearly got a solo quad on that stand. But nearly doesn't count.

Saturday we actually killed 4 on 3 stands. Single on the first stand, triple on the second, blank on the third.

Lots of rain and flooding in Childress and Hall counties and all in this region of the Panhandle. 5' to 7" or rain reported in the news this morning. Road closures possible.

7 bucks at the feeder yesterday morning with a tall 9 with a 3" kicker off his left G2, a young 10 and on old 11 point. Nothing last night and 8 bucks this morning with several new 8 points, the 10 and the 11, but not the 9. The 11 is very tempting as he has a sticker point off his left horn base that goes straight back about 1 1/2" maybe 2". He definitely rules the roost at this feeder over those other bucks. Got to study his pics again.

Any luck this weekend? How's the late rains affecting the browse? Everything still green? I won't make it out until mid-November, but should be timing it just about right.

Great to see you check in Bretto and thanks for the update! I've got a guy that's been trying to get out and shred my trails for weeks now and the moisture has kept him off. Sounds like the rain has also enabled lots of 2nd coveys too.

If you're going to be around the last half of November, shoot me a note and maybe we could link up for a bite or something. Outside of spending a couple days in Kansas and hosting one of my buddies fresh from Kuwait for one of the weekends, I should be around.

We finally got our bow blind set up yesterday. Our radishes are coming along good and surprisingly the milo shot off another head on each stock and is filling up with grain. Maybe I can get in the blind this week or on the weekend.

Top of Texas, when do the deer start on the radishes? I noticed nothing is touching the leaves.

That looks excellent. Farmers I worked for as a kid called second Milo heads "sucker heads", because only a sucker would try to harvest them.

I don't have any experience with radishes. I would assume If companies are putting them in food plot mixes that surely they investigated deer consumption before selling it to people. If this is the first year you planted them, there's always a learning curve involved. Plus, you've got strong competition with native forage right now. That is, If you had a steak house just around the corner, why drive across town through a rough, dangerous neighborhood for a cheeseburger.

Put a small enclosure, t-post with a small hoop of net-wire, out in the field so you can compare how plants are growing relative to deer use.

I've heard they will paw up the radish and eat it when when it gets cold but I thought they liked the forage as well. I chewed on a leaf and its kind of sweet tasting.

Yup, my understanding is that greens get really sweet after they freeze.

Some places deer hammer brassicas, some places they don't. Depends on food sources and what they are used to. Usually I plant mine a little later so that they aren't so stemmy and rank during season. Freezing increases the sugar content as well, which they will need later as it gets cold. Right now there is so much green out there, so much to eat they can do whatever they want. Later after it freezes options get lots fewer.

For the summer stress period something I have had really good luck with is chicory. Seems like it will grow and grow in the spring, nothing touching it. Then sometime around middle of July when most other things are getting tough and stemmy, and peak nutrition is gone out of them, the deer start to just flat hammer the chicory. Deer are like that though. They shift their preferred browsing items on a weekly, and sometimes daily schedule, based on peak palatability and nutrients.

Cold front this week really changed the feel of things. That was the first hard norther of the year. With temps in the 40's and 50's, and a 20+ mph wind on Mon-Tues, it was pretty dang nippy out. It sure felt good though. Made me really start thinking about deer season.

Thanks jethro! We planted more turnips and radishes with triticale early last week will the turnips and radish have plenty of time to grow?

Lemme see, i planted my tricale about 3-4 weeks ago, and overseeded my brassica mix into it maybe 10-12 days ago. Really I like to plant my fall plots mid-late September, whenever I get the moisture. I had no moisture until the big rains hit this time, about the 25th of Sept.

BTW, I knew an old man about 30 miles from here, he always did everything the old school way, using the Old Farmers Almanac and going by the signs. Didn't matter what he was doing. Planting the garden, castrating a hog, butchering a cow, setting trotlines for catfish. If the signs weren't right he wouldn't do it. He told me that May 26 and Sept 26 were rain days. That if you needed to bank on a rain, you could plan on getting a rain within 24 hours of those 2 days every year. He told me if you were a betting man and bet on it every year, you would make a whole lot more money than you lost. Ever since he told me that I have been watching it, and he is right more times than he is wrong. That is one reason I plant my plots then.

Thanks for that tip. Our plots are looking great, chickpeas, black eyes, oats and wheat are all doing well. I'll get some pics this weekend.

Personal Safety Advisory:

Anyone coming to Collingsworth County the next weekend or two to hunt needs to bring at least Thermacell or a high quality bug suit. The last week or so the skeeters have really, and I mean REALLY taken off. A 20 ga with #8 would not be overgunned.

When I have to put on my BugTamer so I can mow on the zero turn in the middle of the day, it is getting bad.

High fence or low fence? Protein diet or hand corn? Tree stand or ground blind? We need the story....that one is huge. Good shot. No blood trail?

Word is he caught it mating with a turkey shortly before shooting hours where he decided to go ahead and take the shot out of state without the proper tag.

Ready for that cool front. Deer movement hasn’t been good today.

Buddy hunted this morning, and saw 50 plus deer. I sat same stand last week and saw 14 deer. We got 40 acres of wheat coming up this week plus cold front got them up and going. No big shooters but a ton of deer

Awesome movement, Jed. I think the most I've ever seen in one sit is 17. Cannot wait to get in a stand. Just a little over a month away for me.

We just started this plot back up about mid-summer this year after it laying out about 5 years, so it is still a little weedy. Burned down weeds with gly in July, Johnsongrass was head high. Mid August we ripped it up with a spring-tooth harrow. Third week in Sept just broadcast Triticale right before a rain. Probably should have burned it down with gly again first, but didn't. We got a really good stand on the Triticale, and the brassicas I slung over the top of it first week of Oct are coming up good too.

This is a trail going through the woods from the main plot to a feeder 75 yards away. You can see my mineral station there as well. No prep at all on the trail, just sling it out before a rain and let it grow.
