Finally made it up to my place this weekend. Food plot is done and hopefully the hogs and horses will stay away.

That blows, the time before last we hand corned and put some rice bran out at a few spots. The hogs and bears zeroed in to the corn. Lost two ground blinds and not as many photos of deer. Going to be up there for opening weekend, hoping to shoot a deer but won't be to proud to stick a pig if one comes in. Anyone buy a bear tag? I am contemplating it.

Well the bears are here to stay, that's for sure. My approach is going to stay the same since I don't hunt feeders. The two we have out are for my two kiddos that have significantly less stand time opportunities (and attention span) than me.

That said, I'll have a bear tag this season. If I run across the feeder repair bear while I'm out rest assured I'll fling a Rage tipped erra in his direction.

I was drawn for Grapevine this season, which is a blessing given my school schedule. I can get a day trip in there on the weekends that I can't get to the mountains. I won't be up to God's country until around ML season so you boys keep the thread hot and updated regularly.

No sir but my dog did. I have some dip left over if you want me to ship it to you.

All joking aside I did get a couple last time I was up. One seed tick and one whopper.

Yes, very much so. Cant keep the locals off my place in Oklahoma or Kansas. They think because they grew up there, they can hunt anywhere they want. Hey, I grew up in east Texas, but would not dare go hunt somewhere that I didn't have permission. Much less somewhere that I have been asked to leave nicely. I was sitting in the drive to my place in Kansas and three guys pull up and start getting ready to hunt. I walked up, told them that they are not supposed to be there, and they need to leave. They drove off and parked on the back side of the place. I didn't realize they were there until I saw a 2 yr. old 8 point fall over dead with an arrow sticking straight up out of his back! They had hung three stands the night before and they were all hunting. I lost my mind on these guys. I have only been going up there for 4 yrs. now and hunt on 3 different farmers land for free, it is because I treat their places with respect and help them in any way I can. I can only think that if the locals were doing the same, they would have plenty of dirt to hunt. I completely understand that some of these guys have been pushed out by outfitters and out of state money, we all have in some form or another. But that is no excuse for trespassing and poaching.

I'd recommend letting the air out of him. Then you can really get a good look at him.

Got this buck opening morning. I didn't have any pictures or history of him. He came in with at 7:30 with a 4 point. Broadside 20 yard shot and he went about 40 yards. Saturday morning was the only time I could hunt since I had to work today so I was pretty excited to get him.

Question from the Push crew, would you take a 1.5 old spike or let him walk to see what he grows in to?

I bet you will get a ton of opinions on this but I personally don't buy the once a spike always a spike. IMO if a year and a half deer has a small basket rack i would argue it may have better genetics than a year and a half old spike.......but with proper nutrition and time, i think you may be surprised on some deer's potential...even if it's first rack is a spike.
Big disclaimer, I'm no expert but played one on TV one time.

great article:

QDMA has done a lot of research on this, 1.5 year old spikes have grown to be 8 and 10 point deer at 4.5 and up. Culling should be done by age class first, then antler growth. Young deer are impacted greatly by environmental factors and the fudge factor is just too great to know their potential at that age.

That's why I passed on him this morning. Wanting to get some meat in the freezer. On a second note, anyone one know where to get firewood near Hugo?

The date is off on the cam due to rain getting into the circuitry. This was on September 26. Thankfully I have it staked in well and he couldn't tip it all the way.
