Well is anyone still seeing deer or has the pressure driven them to the parks?

I think the acorn crop is to blame for the lack of deer sightings. A buddy at work said all the people he knows that hunt around the lake have not been seeing many deer. They have shut off there feeder due to the corn being left on the ground under there feeders.

I've heard the same talking to locals around the lake. Nothing is hitting feeders and live oak trees are still full of acorns......

I am wondering if you have to hunt on a draw at somerville? The reason why i asked is because this guy in another feed said that public hunts are mainly a draw hunt. Is that true?

The notorious October lull.
I will be out next week. Bucks have been starting to move throughout the state so hopefully things will start heating up next week.

Does anyone know what happened there? I ask because I actually got the opportunity to meet John (Limbwalker) and shoot some archery with him. Really aided me in starting up an archery club at my university. Wish I could get a hold of him to keep him updated on the club's success.

I never had an issue with LW, but he started commenting on a few different threads last year and came across as being slightly argumentative with just about everyone. Like I said, I never had an issue with him personally, but I think he just wouldn't quit with a few posts.

Seems like it is really slow for everybody this year. Went out last Saturday and saw to pretty big groups of pigs. Couldn't get a shot at any small ones. Also saw a few does and a spike at 50 yards or so. Giving it another go this weekend. Anybody else going out this weekend?

Let the acorns get cleaned up and they will start moving better. They started dropping about 3-4 weeks ago out here.

It was a good hunt Saturday morning. Took my 8 year old daughter on her first bow hunting experience. She loved it. Not too hot and plenty of animals moving through the area. No shooters this time but at least she got to see some animals up close and personal.
