Thanks for the input, I'll be at a place just north of Langtry over the holiday. I hope to get something on the ground.

Trust me, I know, this will be my first trip. Unfortunately it will be solo driving, till I meet up with my uncle. It's definitely a huge difference from the east Texas piney wood public land I'm use to hunting.

I killed a nice mgmt 8 that was nosing a doe around this weekend. They are definitely getting close, but my guess is it's still a few weeks out. As Victor mentioned, these warm temps have the deer activity scaled back.

I hunted all weekend in Val Verde ... still nothing great yet. Young bucks only still. I've been the last 3 weekends in a row, but not sure if I will go back this coming weekend or not. I will definitely be out there on the 12th!

Well got back yesterday. Stayed an extra day when the cold front blew in on Monday.
Hunting was pretty excellent. Smaller bucks chasing hard and the big boys were cruising.
Took three bucks off our pasture. I shot one Wednesday night. Buddy killed a great buck (his first ever). He had no idea what a nice one it was and was worried about what we would think. Lease members wife killed an 8 that we had planned on letting walk. He was a heck of a deer and would have been outstanding in a year or 2. Guess that's what happens when you have people hunting by themselves.

Well we had a great last week of the general season just like last year. Had a great time and hate to have to come back to the real world.

My dad shot a 12 pt that was bullying a smaller buck around. Didn't have a lot of tine length but still a dang nice buck. Grossed 131 4/8. Horrible picture quality on that one, sorry.

My buddy took a bruiser of a ten point that was running a group of does with a smaller buck. He grossed 141 even and weighed just over 150 on the hoof. Heck of a nice buck.

I took this nine point yesterday morning about 9:35 in the morning.
He was standing in nearly the exact same spot as an 8 pt I killed on the last day of the season last year at 9:35 in the morning. Pretty cool.
There are bigger deer out there but I am still proud of him. Had to take my own photos as everybody else cleared out on Friday, so no proper LDPs. Haven't scored this one yet but I don't care about score anyway.

Now all of a sudden I can't add pictures....
