Default 2017-2018 East Texas Hunting Thread

I'm a little late but time to get this East Texas campfire stirred up. From what I'm personally seeing and what I'm hearing from others, the deer are healthy and the bone has been growing at a record pace!

This will be a place for us East Texas hunters to chime in on what y'all are seeing, share trail cam pics, give tips and really just a place to shoot the bull.

Here we go and good luck this upcoming season! Let's make it one to remember.

I'm in. Hunt just outside of Palestine in Anderson County about 30 acres. Not alot of deer pics this summer, mostly pigs. Have 5 different doe, a 6, and 2 8's (one is on the list, I think he's 5.5). Past couple years I've had more show up around mid October. Lookig forward to the upcoming season.

Good luck to everyone.

We just finished our camera survey and numbers look good, probably better than last year.

We've been hammering the 8's (except for the 10 I got away with) and it's showing in our herd. Lots of 9+ in the gene pool.

Deer at cameras wasn't what I expected but with everything as green as it is (and all puddles full of water), corn is an afterthought.

Should be another great year for the herds and the antler development but I anticipate having similar issues as the last few years around feeders.

Time to get creative (again).

In. What's up fellas. Panola County. 215 Acres. New lease for us. Does not appear to have been hunted for awhile. Roads r grown up. No evidence of previous dwellers. Not gonna disturb it too much this year, maybe a feeder or 2, ground blind, 2 ladder stands. Just sneak in and hunt it to see what's cruising the creek bottoms. I feel a record breaker coming this year!

I saw a good deer a little bit ago at work. Was turning around at a gate and my lights hit this big boy. The pic is blurry and doesn't do him justice, he was a really good deer. I've been seeing a few nice ones already.

Had to take a break financially this year from leasing, but I'll hit up Big Sam a little, as well as traveling to the family farm in Austin Co when there aren't visitors using it. So I'm gonna be living vicariously through all of you fellas! I pray that it's a year to remember...the conditions sure do favor it being a good one

I'm in. Can't wait to read all the reports. I'm just starting on my fall food plots over in Leon county near Oakwood.

Are y'all seeing much in the way of acorns? I have one tree over my camp that's pretty thick in acorns but out in the field I'm not seeing much. I don't know if I just can't see them or if they aren't there.

Put up feeder pens this summer to keep the hogs at bay. Hopefully they'll leave since they can't get to the corn anymore.

I am still hunting in Houston County between Grapeland and Elkhart. We are ate up with pigs worse than ever this year. We really haven't had many the last two seasons. I was late getting cameras out this year so I'm excited to check them for the second time next weekend. So far, the pic below maybe my target this season. He was a very nice 8 last year. He is 5 year old 9 this year. Hopefully the 6 year old super tall 10 survived last season and shows up soon on camera. If so, he will be my target...

I'm in. Fawn crop looks real nice, lots of acorns and such a good summer with rain and mild temps. 5 years since the drought, there's going to be some studs show up and the cupboards are full of up and comers. Going to be a fun year regardless of all the acorns that are about to rain down lol

My wife and I welcomed a baby this year and my time at the farm has been severely reduced. I haven't run cameras yet and don't have any corn in feeders. Can't wait to see what we have this year....

I am in Van Zandt County. Hunt about 100ac. We see a few deer. Really hoping to see hogs this year. Going to move a couple stands this weekend and put feeders up. Would love to find another lease close with a lot of hogs. hope to run some cameras this year too.

Family land in Harrison County North of Waskom. 40 acres surrounded by paper company leases and outlaws. I'm lucky to see deer. Trying something different this year. Put 2 corn feeders on the property in JAN. Been running them all year long. Just letting it grow up this year except mowing the fence row and a couple of right-of-ways so we can get around better. Have a 15' ladder stand in a small opening I mowed out in June and a box sitting on a pipeline for rifle hunting. Live in Killeen so I only make it up there 5-10 times during hunting season.

Checking in from northwest Polk County west of Corrigan. We are in our 36th season on the same ground. Wet Spring & Summer has us concerned about another bumper acorn crop-potentially hindering effectiveness of baited corn and food plots. Also like others have mentioned, after seeing fewer hogs last season our population has exploded again.

Just looking forward to being perched in my bow stand or with my rifle in my "Pulpit in the Pines".

Cass County for us. Our 200 acres is starting to show more deer on camera. Had some good bucks on camera last year, at night. I did not hear of any neighbors taking great ones, so I believe they survived. Acorns just mean it is easier to find trees to hunt . Looking to a good year. have not killed a deer in a couple years.

Let the haters hate. I enjoy seeing your pics of those East Texas swamp donkeys. I am just ready for them to shed already so we can see what deer we will have hanging around for the season.

Was out working on things this past weekend, and the weekend before... saw some beautiful bucks, but absolutely NONE are coming to feeders... all HOGS!! Last year we had a lot of deer hitting the feeders mainly I think because our hog numbers were WAY down due to all the flooding from the previous year+... The hogs are back with a vengeance! I knew it would be this way so not surprised... Had 3 sows and one lone boar hitting one spot last year... When those sows dominoed with their litters, those 4 hogs turned into 30!! That same thing happened all over our property!

Also, already see a lot of "akerns" too... gonna be a tough hunt this year in Liberty County! Gonna have to get out there and mix it up a bit. A bit early to try to establish a pattern or location for specific deer just yet. I had some good 'uns that we let walk last year... I'm in hopes they'll resume their similar patterns from the year before. Got me a sack full of new cameras and will start scatterin' 'em out soon as I see hard horned deer when I'm out riding around or when the ones behind my house start showing up hard horned...

I'm looking forward to hunting along with you guys this year again. Gonna be my second year since '76 to hunt deer in East Texas... Let's Git-er-dun!!

Well, I hunt public and one small place in wood county. Doing a whole lot of staying out of the wood county place. Great deer come through early November and then they are gone, which leads me to believe it's intrusion on our part. Anyways, really going after 2 deer up there. Ones a 9 that I passed 2 years ago at 4 I believe and one is deer that put on about 35 inches between 3 and 4. But he will be 5 this year. I haven't ran cameras or anything. I will plant for fall and hope for the best. We only hunt it a handful of times a year as I enjoy the public atmosphere. But I do enjoy following this thread. Good luck to all.

Edit, the year is wrong on the stealth cam pic.

It's a pretty safe bet that if I post pics this year it's of something I have no intention of shooting. One of my stands has a 21pt (what I can make out) NT showing up...but I got a buddy on that place and he's hunting my stands this year. Hoping he groundchecks him.

You ain't alone, brother we moved back to Conroe last fall, and I was accustomed to walking in the back pasture in the evenings to hunt at the farm. I had some adjusting to do. It's worse this year with no lease I plan on being a TBH junkie unless the farm is free of guests and I can sneak up there a few weekends this year. Dang people want to go up and enjoy the cooler weather and are cutting into my hunting I went from only having 3 weekends off limits to currently having only 4 that will be free all dang year

I put up a feeder with slinkys last week, guess I'll be covered in hogs again.

Haven't had a chance to hunt east Texas but I enjoy following the thread. Good luck this year to all.

I can hardly wait. Need to get my crossbow restrung and I'll be ready for the season. Before you jump me, I've had shoulder surgery on one shoulder and have had to do physical therapy on both multiple times lol.

Can't wait to check cameras this weekend. Also, since taking down my spin feeder I built a PVC pipe feeder and am looking forward to putting that up this weekend.

Are y'all seeing much in the way of acorns? I have one tree over my camp that's pretty thick in acorns but out in the field I'm not seeing much. I don't know if I just can't see them or if they aren't there.

I fertilized an area of white oaks...they are LOADED. Got a stand strategically placed.

No different than anyplace else, minus the feeder and permanent stand and the people.

No, really the public land is some good hunting. I have 2 leases and still find time to hunt public. grab a tree climber and get after it.
