High shoulder close shot angled downward. She was closer than I had estimated-happened pretty fast. In hindsight, Not my best effort, I admit.

Well I didn't get a deer but I saw the most and biggest bucks I've ever seen in three days. Today was absolute coolest day of hunting that I've ever had. Seeing that huge buck made the whole weekend worth hunting. Definitely figured we'd have more LDPs this weekend but not the case. Segment B ought to be an absolute blood bath if they keep moving! Congrats to those who scored and good luck to those who are still to hunt. I'll be following along on the next two segments.

Well its a done deal. Sat in my summit daylight to dark three days in Godwin. Had a total of 8 deer in bow range and all were bucks....no shooters. I didn't see a single doe all weekend. Friday deer moved all day long. Saturday nothing till 15 minutes before dark. And today I didn't see a single deer. I'm tired, sore, and whooped.

Good luck to the Seg B & C hunters and congrats to the ones that got their deer this year. This 46 year old will be in a ground blind if I get a chance to do it again.

Well after a 2.5 mile hike each way and 36 total hours on stand I come back empty handed. Learned a ton and had a blast. Had a few does within range and tried to draw back on one but got busted. Saw lots of deer and turkeys and some yotes. All in all a great experience.


PS I'll be using a bike my next hunt

Slow decision making cost me a mature deer but he was not what I came for. It was a great experience and one I will never forget. I too am whipped after three days of chasing them. Today was the slowest I have seen out there. Tough hunting. Good luck to the B and C guys. I will be tagging along

Thanks for bringing us along. The H is a wonderful place. I've seen the biggest deer of my life on my hunt. Saw deer every sit. But at the end of 3 days, I was mentally and emotionally done.

Saw a deer that could be pushing 200 inches at the RV camp 12 miles away where Fluster was standing. 12 noon right on side of the road by the front gate. Too bad they don't allow hunting.

You guys toughed it out. That's what H is. A tough hunt that sends the little panty wearers home early.

Next year is my turn God willing. Gotta put a bigger deer on the wall...

A total of 14 deer killed with 79 hunters equals 17.7% harvest ratio. Not too bad!

Man tired sore drained this morning but would do it all over again
To hunt that magical place. Finally saw a real good buck last evening but to far
And too late. My buddy saw two more good bucks and one of those was
Even bigger than the one the evening before at 60 yrds.
The H does not give up those ghost easily. Good luck to all the B and C hunters.

If I remember right, and I am too lazy this morning to go look. That is down 7 from last year on A. I think it was 5 and 16 for 21 total.

Side note. Went to the gas station in pottsboro still wearing camo and they asked what I was hunting. Told them deer. Lady said "there's only small deer in Texas"
I bet now your camo smells like cheap perfume and stale hotdogs

I'm pretty sure I left my GPS out there. I know I brought it back to the lot with my sunday night, so I guess i must have left it sitting on my bumper or something. Sick feeling. I'm gonna call tomorrow and hopefully someone returned it

Had not seen the pic before. Like I said a local landowner shared the pic with me and said it was from the game wardens trail cam, who was supposedly a friend of his. I had no reason not to believe him, he was a nice man.
