1). I always were orange while in hunting the Sam. But since it was archery season (Not required), as I was I the archery only area....no guns allowed. But still wear orange cap walking out/in.
2) I'm lifetime Hunting/fishing license holder-wont do anything to mess that up.
3). For the gopro vid, took off cap so the hunting aspect shows gear use.
4). As per TPWD rules (note word firearm use):Notice:*to archery hunters and recreational users: You must wear hunter orange during daylight hours at any time when firearm hunting for any species is authorized on the unit...... archery only area remember....no firearms allowed.
5). Yes I know it's squirrel season, but not in archery only area.
But thanks to all my fellow hunters being aware and voicing their pov, this is what I help defend for us all....as USMC
Let's all be safe this season.

So you say youd do nothing to mess up your lifetime license but post pic of 3 bucks taken in the Sam in a single year? And yes you still have to wear orange even in bow season and even in the bow only area. **sorry Ive been gone for couple months from here and just spent morning catching up lol**

Orange is required all year in the entire area of the SHNF, including the archery only area.

I don't know this person, but it seems he posted three bucks and claimed that all three were shot in the SHNF. That's no good. I know several people were saying they were going to contact the GW.
Since he hasn't responded since that time, my guess is that he did get a visit.

I try every year to inform people about the rules in the Sam, most don't listen.

I hope we were mistaken and he didn't end up with a ticket.

Thanks to TMiddleton, I'm the proud owner of a new rig.
ILF recurve. I've got a lot of learning to do, but I'm excited about the new adventures.

I've always thought about winging it with a recurve, but I need to get better with the old compound first after I get it fixed

So random question, when would be a good time to hit the forest to scout out spots for next season? I was thinking of heading out this weekend but wasn't sure if it was too early.

Go now before green-up. You can see trails easier, and you can also see rubs through the canopy. Its also not 100 degrees outside either.

That's what I figured. Want to get an idea of the deer in the area before the bucks drop their antlers. Hard to tell if they'll be worth hunting next season by the holes in their heads

Just remember, the sign you're finding now is what they are doing now, not during the season. Their patterns change.

What I've noticed, at least where I hunt them, one shot goes off and they make for the hills so you gotta get on em quick or have dogs to tree them. Also, walking around it's crazy tough to have luck with the bushytails in the Sam from what I've encountered. I go in just like I'm deer hunting, sit there and bust the squirrels when they come out. Not much else to it IMHO.

You just buy them online. Piece them together. I've seen risers and limbs go for reasonable amounts and crazy amounts. I don't know the difference, so I really couldn't tell you.

I have been hunting them about once a month now since Sept. There are no leaves on the trees, so they see you from a mile away and they run. I haven't been within 100 yards of one in over a month.

Personally, I am waiting for the trees to bud out a little bit before I head back. Just crazy how far off they will spook.

Ok hope everyone had a great sage year. I've been traveling about hunting and haven't looked here. I see many got their undies in knot over my hunts. Let me clear up things since people read into things their way. Of those pic i posted of my deer, only one from Sam this year....the other one was from Sam the previous year (this was to show and hope to inspire not to give up-as people were post bad outings...change up game plan and things work out) with way weather had been it was ruff, but never quit. In that pic of me and deer without orange on, they should look at lower left at base of tree (see orange on ground! Btw HE was one who took that pic for me), and yes orange has to be worn during hunting season as squirrel season in....i do. The GW and talk about how it was long ago when that wasnt case in archery (so that stuck in my mind). My third deer wasn't in the Sam (never claimed to take them all in Sam), posted them here as reminder that good hunting can still be had, even way weather has been and no one having luck (posted was meant to be a encouraging). Now here is a pic of my last two hunt of season.... I'm already scouting for next season-i do this year round at times via trail cameras and getting out in woods scouting. I don't wait until right before season to do..shed hunt, moving stands and see what made it. So don't assume.....
I travel when I hunt each year and not just hunt the Sam alone. Maybe people who assume I took 3 in Sam, that is only place they go? 1deer Sam, surrounding walker/Montgomery county 2deer
So guess they assume I took my last few in Sam....
Next season have plans New Mexico, Arizona, Arkansas, Texas and final Illinois

Never too early to hit woods for next season, things change and if you see what is going on early, mid and just before. This will help with hunts. I've put out trail cams already

Good to hear. Sometimes it hard to tell what people are trying to say online.
When you post a deer on here, most people will assume you shot it in the SHNF, since that's what this thread is about.
I think most were going by what you posted.

Pretty new to the area and new to this site. Family and I moved to Magnolia a little over a year ago and I am hunting SHNF for the first time this year. First year public hunting at all actually. I do most of my hunting on my family's private property in Mississippi. Looking forward to BS'ing with you guys and seeing what SHNF has to offer.

Well there's always room for another. We've talked for years about having a spring bash. Camp out and chase fish and pigs.

Just need someone to put it together....hint....hint....

Sounds good to me, if we have a few meet up I might just have an area in mind where the pigs like to cruise.

I do an annual hunt called the
Granger Ranger Xtreme Hunt.
Or GRXH for short.
The rules are no food after noon on Friday. If you want to eat you have to catch it or kill it.
Usually there are between 50-80 guys. Not all of them hunt, but they ALL drink....alot.

They talk some serious BS and generally have a good time.

You have to have some thick skin to hang with them.
But it's near Austin.

I would love to have one here, but the hogs are much harder to hunt here ( just not as many or reliable) but there is fishing.
The GRXH is the last weekend of Feb. ( Coming up, and yes, I'll be there)
I always thought about having it in either March or April. Weather should be good, fish would be more available then. Even if the hogs wouldn't cooperate at least we might catch some fish and not starve.

Just something to think about. We could have one heck of a shin dig, really get to know each other and make new friends and memories to last a lifetime.

Sounds like a plan to me, March would be a little better on weather I think

Possibly. Maybe the whites will be running and maybe some crappie.

Ive heard the same. Gonna try when I get home in a couple weeks. We launched at trinity river in Riverside last week and the water was green and pretty clear. I caught one white. That was it all day. We trolled, casted, and jigged deep too. Well see what Caney and Harmon have in store.
