Pretty sure GarGuy had some bucks dropping this time last year. Wouldnt be surprised if thats not the case again. I think its hard to give a blanket time frame for all your bucks given age etc. Add this stupid 80 degree January and who knows this year. My next trip up will be second week of February and I will be keeping my eyes peeled.

Middle of February and early March is when we always found them in Houston county. My family hunted between Lovelady and Crockett for 27 years.

From now til mid march most will be gone. Last year on march 15 I saw a bachelor group of 10 bucks and only one buck had one side. Rest were slick
