Thank you guys, we're gonna be going up there in 2 weeks to set up feeders and cameras. It's a nice place it has plenty of spring feed ponds and a 2 or 3 acre lake. A friend of mine got me and a friend in the lease. 2 guys got off the lease and one guy was kicked off for killing a buck and not retrieving it.

Congrats on the new lease. The gut that got kicked off, did he try to retrieve it? I assume he didn't otherwise you will be going through members like crazy if you get kicked off just because you couldn't find a deer.

Sound like a good place, but anybody knows you are going to lose one sooner or later. As long as every effort is made to find it should not be grounds to be kicked off. Maybe just counted as one of your lease allotted deer for the year.

When I read not retrieving a deer sounds like he didn't look. If it was because he didn't recover a deer after putting every effort possible forward, that is another thing.

Congrats on the new place.

The lease is a 8pt or better, the hunter told another hunter that he had shot a six point so he didn't bring it in because of the 8pt rule.

That makes sense and a good reason to kick him off.

This will be my first year on the lease. But they've shot 2 over 150" and usually take several over 130" each year from what I'm told. We're not right next to you but close. We have Mulies too. There are some pics on a post in the classifieds for the lease. It's titled "5 spots on west Texas lease" this part of the county has good potential if you have a management system in place. Just from living in Sweetwater I can tell there are better deer north of I-20 than south. Free range deer that is.

That's good deer 130's and 150's! The ranch manager has been on this ranch for more than 10 years that's why he has a 8pt or better rule. I haven't seen any deer pictures of previous kills but my friend told me they have quality deer on the ranch.

I bet they have adequate deer. An acquaintance of mine hunts just southwest of Snyder on the river on a huge ranch and said neighbors have taken B&C bucks and they've had a few themselves. It's 24,000 acres low fence. Theyre out there. I'm excited about this year. And the rain has been awesome. Our tanks all have a lot of water with many being close to full and we have something like 24 tanks. We just got about 5" out here too. Some I'm curious to see what the tanks look like now

The 2 ranches that join ours are large ranches also. We are southwest of Snyder also. We have around 5 tanks and a 4 to 5 acre lake that is spring feed.

That price per acre reminds me of when I use to hunt with my dad in South Texas a long time ago.
