First year with my very own place! I was pretty concerned that I might be culling for next couple years - my place hasnít been hunted for decades but according to the neighbors we have a guy that ďwhen heís not in the pen, shoots everything that walks and has his buddies out to do the sameĒ. Luckily I hear he went back to the Pen 6 months ago! Check out the G1 on that young fella in pic 3!

Near Rockwood. I got a bunch of young Ďuns but just happy to see my very own deer. I am fine with a 120 class buck every year or two.

With letting them age up you will get much better than that.

My family is from Trickham. Hunted a lot of land around there. Seen deer up to 150, and that was 0 management just not shooting young deer. I've always said if I had the money to do things RIGHT you could have MONSTERS every year from that area

That is very encouraging! I am only on 100 acres and the neighbors have all agreed to an 8pt or better rule which is a good start. No one feeds protein though which is a big push from me. Other downside is there are a lot of high fence places in the area which hurts the deer numbers pretty bad where I am at. Positive thing though is there are ZERO hogs. Not a single one in decades. Canít explain it as there are tons all over coleman but none at my ranch or any neighbors.

Hunted just southwest of there around Doole, lots of winter wheat fields in the area. Years with rain at the right time and there are some nice deer there. A 130-140" deer was not uncommon if you put the time in. If you get one on cam the best time to get him was last week of bow season, around the 3rd and 4th week of November they would rut hard and new deer would show up then in December they head to the nearest green wheat field.

Also it was like we had 2 completely different deer species as in typical full grown 120 pound hill country deer and a northern variety that may weigh180 pounds. It was night and day body sizes but aging them on the hoof was the same.

I get to Coleman County regularly. Great dove hunts and quail can be great to if weather cooperates. Have never seen a hog on his ranch.

We have a small place and I love watching “my deer” year around.
Congrats on your piece of heaven.
Your neighbor is why every wants a high fence.
Anxious to hear your stories and see photos from this fall
My years of Texas deer obsession has proven that all areas can produce exceptional deer given age and food.

Kingfisher. I hear Gouldbusk is the place for dove hunting in coleman county. That being said, I have never been there. Dove hunting is supposed to be pretty good all throughout southern Coleman.

This^^^ If you are looking for some lights out dove hunting in that area, look up my friends, the Wise's, at Centennial Lodge. It is unreal how many birds they kill in that area.
