Couple weeks ago watched an 8 point make a rub on a small cedar for 15-20 minutes straight. Saw lots of does that could care less about wind direction. They came from straight downwind and never acted spooked for a second. Only a couple bucks. The forkhorn moved right on through and didn't stop.

Lock down city in the woods. Had opportunities just didn't feel like dragging one in the heat. Maybe in the morning they will work like the usually do and it will be game on. Best of luck to all yall.

Lots of movement today until the wind got crazy. It was a doe frenzy and one buck that had 3-4 inch nubs still in velvet. He was a third of the size of the does.

Anybody make it out there this weekend? Curious what all this rain did to the creeks.. NOAA shows Yegua at 5.96ft and cresting tomorrow at 8.4ft

Was out there on a job this morning, nails at 1697 is out of its banks and the yegua was pretty close to being out of the banks on 124. Don't know if it crested yet but it had a slow rain all morning too.

With all these rains and cold weather we will have to compete with duck hunters!

I'll be out there this Friday and Saturday, will be my first and only trip of the year out there. Hope the creek levels continue to decline steadily over the next few days. Would hunt Thursday but looks windy as heck.

Was out this afternoon. Muddy as could be. Creeks are still high and moving water. Not much to report other than duck hunters were in full force!

I found some Deer and scrapes, bigger bucks seem to be night time only. I've been out there a lot the past 2 weeks. Waiting for a good one to slip up.

I dont know about on the lake, but ponds near the lake have hardly any birds. Checked like 6 ponds yesterday and only found about 10 birds. Warm weather moved them on. Hoping cold front moves some more birds in.

I'm fairly new to Texas hunting, only was relocated here (active Army) late last summer. I just have a few questions about Somerville
1-Whats the predominate wind direction?
2-Will I be able to use a climber stand?

I appreciate it!

Wind is normally from the South to South East, unless a front is / has come through.
Climber stand will be difficult. Not a lot of straight trees to pick from from what I have seen.

JSBrit, thanks for the info. I have a hang on stand, and a ground blind. Its a bit different over here in the Hill Country compared to hunting in the NE states, but I am slowly learning. Looking forward to getting out in the woods this fall!

There's no deer in Sville... just a heads up. Don't go in with high hopes. Sville deer are some of the smartest in the state. They can both pick out a pop up and lock on from a mile out. Enjoy your season and good luck

Im at Ft Sam in SA. Camp Bullis is one of the most expensive posts to hunt on. I am a bit shocked at the cost to hunt in Texas, especially since my last duty station was Ft Drum, NY which was free to hunt on. I will look into some other WMAs as well, just trying to do a low cost DYI hunt instead of having to drop 100 plus dollars a day just to bow hunt.
