Your kidding me!! I like to think of instances like this make it a true "Public Land Experience" That sucks, but sounds like you'll have your day sir. I'm leaving myself, nothing this morning. Hope the guy who recently set up near me and the property line
who has his groundblind with his hunting permit tagged to his blind laminated to the back. It's a small little tag tied to the back. If this is anyone's can you PM me so we could make sure eitherone of us is not crossing our deer trails. Thanks. Hope y'all had a safe and successful opening.

Default Any up for helping me trail one?

I bloodied a fat doe around 8:30 and blooded trailed for about 60yds. Now my blood trail has dried up and not having any luck. If anyone is willing to help I'd greatly appreciate it.

I'm taking my dog out to my spot after I get off work. I don't mind helping you out. If there is blood on the ground there is a big chance he will find it. I'm not sure what time I'll be done at my spot.

Took advantage of my early doe and removed a problematic 11 pointer who thought he owned the feeder

Quartered away and the shot was just in front of rear hip. The Rage tore him up inside. Fell in sight.

Someone brought in a 130-14- class 9 or 10 into Hunters Creek processing from Lake G-town public or land bordering public. Y'all know who? I saw it passing by, nice dark rack on the buck.

I was there when he turned it in. Actually he was nice enough to let me cut in line, as I was in a rush. Shook his hand, but I can't for the life of me remember his name.

Older gentleman. He said it was private land that was bordering Corps. He was calling it a 10 pt.

Would love to see the tape on it.

Unfortunately I didn't see Jimbousmc's request for help until about 4:00. However, I met him about 4:45 this afternoon with my dog and by 5:30 we were dragging it out. If anyone needs help finding a deer please call me at 512-818-2609. My dog hasn't trailed a lot of deer, but is 5 for 5.

Congrats on your first Texas kill Jim, now go get a buck!
