Use to hunt between Lometa and San Saba. Right as you get the river bridge on the Lometa side, there is a little road that looks like it would go down to the river on the right hand side, it actually goes to a little cabin. We hunted both sides of the road from the river back towards Lometa about a mile or 2. River bottom and orchards made for some good hunting. Sure miss that place. Wonder who hunts it these days. Google maps still shows our stands being there lol.

Hunt across from Colorado Bend. The antler restrictions have done some good the past few years. There are also a lot of aoudad in the area now. Just wish we'd get some serious rain now.

My folks are buying a place about 10 miles outside of Lampasas. Our previous place was south of Seguin, so I'm not as up to speed on the more hill-country management needed in Lampasas. Do you guys get your protein from Brown Feed? Does anyone get bulk protein delivery around there? What do you guys do for food plots if anything? Do you guys plant millet or anything for dove/turkey? I'm excited about this place. I've seen turkey, deer, and dove both times I've been out there, and it hasn't been hunted in several years. It needs some significant cedar maintenance and some grading at the ponds, which we'll get on top of pretty quick, but we're trying to put together a food plot/feeding plan to benefit the deer, turkey, and doves.

I've been looking at a lot of properties online up around that area - I didn't think there was Axis but there seems to be from some of the posts here. What is best location to be looking for all of you familiar with that area? Prefer to have exotics.

Just strolling down memory lane a little here - this was my first bow deer, from a lease we had close to Lometa two years ago. He was a little young for my usual decision making, but the weekend I shot him was the second of only two opportunities I had to hunt that year and we were getting off the lease at the end of the season so I decided to take the shot. It was great to finally get a bow deer after lots and lots of bowhunting with no luck. The double throat patch was cool too. I didn't get a deer last season and we ran out of venison about six months ago. I can't wait to get back in the saddle our new Lampasas place and get some meat in the freezer.

I just talk to them to play with them as we don't have a lot and the lease hunters around around us shot into my group of gobblers last year and killed about half of them. I used to have about 10 gobblers that would come to the feeder in the back until that happened.
