I too have a few good looking bucks. I went up to the lease last week. Deer are hitting feeders hard. So are the pigs and turkeys. Season looking good. Good luck to everyone.

Went out there Saturday and scouted a couple spots. It had rained enough to knock the dust down on the county road in the morning but thats about it. As for the deer, this was the first time I have been able to sit and scout. We have only been on this place for the past 2 months and it was in rough shape when we first got it. So far nothing but young deer but I think both of these deer have potential.

Few miles north of Adamsville. Saw a shooter 9 Labor day weekend. Missing a lot of bucks that I'm positive made it through last year.










Dads feeder below will get a pen next year similar to mine above. That pen went up Labor day, now hogs and cows are no longer an issue.

Default First year in Lampasas County

My parents just got a new place in Lometa so, this will be our first year hunting it. Have a couple decent 8's on camera. One that'll probably get double lunged this weekend. Other than that, our pond is drying up and looks like we could use some serious rain. What caliber of bucks should I expect to see this year?

just a reminder. lampasas county is very dry and crisp right now. So be careful with the outside fires and where you park your trucks. Try to avoid parking over tall grass.

We are covered up in doe. The guys on our lease don't shoot them so my plan is to tag out. Then take the kids down during the extended season and let them smack a couple each.

I shot a nice 10 point with the Hoyt Sunday morning in Lometa. I would post pictures but I can't seem to figure out how. Bucks are all bachelored up and the doe are plentiful. I have not seen anything I would consider an old, mature buck on camera or in the field yet and I am trying to figure out if this is due to the fact that not many people let good, young deer go around the area or if they just get popped at a young age.

Any thoughts?

We're here 3 miles S of Evant. Just gun hunting this year, but we have a couple of BIG fat does coming to the feeder when it goes off at sunrise every morning. Going to have a bunch of venison sausage in the freezer this winter!

We are across the river from Colorado Bend. Been showing up the last couple seasons. Haven't seen any Axis yet. Really hoping to get a chance at one some day.

Default First bow buck

I was able to get my first bow buck on film using a GoPro. Here's a link to the video if you wanna check it out. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7a...FnbGF6ZVk/view

My camera skills need some work but, like I said, it was my first bow buck and I was pretty pumped haha

Made a trip up to the lease this weekend. Deer are hitting the
feeders hard with the dry weather. What do ya'll think about age
on the big 8 and 9. I really wish that 9 could live a few more years
but I know that is not very realistic thinking.

I dropped this guy on Saturday morning. He was #1 on my hit list. I've been watching him for 3 years. Couldn't be happier!! See link below for details.

That 8 is a chunk. Dudes got a serious potbelly and a bit of a sway in his back. I'd say he's gotta be at the very least 4 1/2 if not 5 1/2. It would be a no brainer if he walked out in front of me. The 9 is pretty and if you think he could make it another year, go for it. Just depends if you trust your neighbors or not haha

That big 8 looks very mature to me. 5.5 yo at minimum.
