Hunted new spot for the second time this morning. Bumped deer coming in. Had hogs around me most of the morning. Didn't see a deer. Had this descent buck walk by my tree yesterday morning following a doe. Will be back at is Sat/Sun before it's all over! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

I sat for as long as I could this morning without freezing over. I saw one buck and 2 does; all out of range. Couldn't get a great look at the buck.

I made the mistake of going late doe/spike season the last time I got drawn for GV. Saw the oldest buck I had ever seen. he was broken off on one side but was the most mature deer I had ever seen in the wild. He hung around my stand at 15 to 30 yards for 30 min or more. Will never put myself in that position again, lol.

Murphy's law! It sounds like you are still losing sleep over that hunt and I don't blame you.

I hunted hard but couldn't get it done. Closest I got to a shooter was about 50 yards.

Just double checking....
does the vine require a standard hunter education, or does it require a bowhunting education like Haggerman?

No BH Ed such as Hagerman, and no qualification as Hagerman, therefore anyone can apply with little-no effort, or so I'm told.

The vine is turning into a swamp where I normally hunt in the vine. I’m looking to hunt hogs tomorrow and the next few days east of 377 but south of Denton Creek. Can I get some intel about that piece? Anybody see hogs in that area?

Probably going to be pretty muddy or under water there in parts as well. If I had some muck boots I would be out there is the rain would let up.

Dang armadillos. Did you go in from 377 or 35? Troy lost some arrows and a quiver a few months ago.

I decide to pass on the normal 377 entry until tomorrow. I will keep my eyes open. I went further northeast to the Hog Only hunting grounds. I saw six does which winded me an left. I saw one armadillo, he was a fatty. Came across a feed area with some fresh scat and game trails, but no hogs showed up this evening. I’ll be out there in the morning at O’ Dark thirty.

Good luck man. Yeah I've been over to the hog only area a few times this new year. I've only seen pigs in the neighbors hog pen.

The single arrow I found was a Beman Hunter 360.

I did some scouting/hog hunting yesterday morning east of 377. Spoke briefly with a couple walking their dog, ran into the Game Warden and saw a guy rabbit hunting with a shotgun. I did come across some huge hog scat, so I hope to cross paths with him next month.

Went out for a few hours today. Didn't see any hogs. I did spook up about 10 deer, 2 were bucks and both had there antlers. Any idea when they will be dropping?

Did a little shed hunting today. I got skunked. Walked up on a cotton mouth and saw an owl. Those were the highlights.

Enjoyed reading this strict thread today I learned there is no deer at the vine and but there is still better chances of seeing a deer at the vine than there is of one getting shared on here.
