Nothing in 936 to see, tag soup is best served here so you may want to steer clear!!

Magnolia, correct? Is that the big 8 you had missed earlier in the season?

Friend of mine killed this one Sunday evening in San Augustine county. He retired Wednesday last week and killed his biggest deer to date 4 days later. Icing on the cake. Any guesses on score. 22Ē inside

Had a couple of hundred pics of this nice 9 over the past week. He had several scrapes near my stand. Pretty sure I saw him cross the high line at my other stand near by this evening. He was about 250 yrds out and across the fence this evening.

Hopefully he will hang around while Iím gone for two weeks working.

Late last year we had a nice buck show up with his back left leg thrashed pretty good. I worried he was a goner but he showed up again a couple weeks ago. Or at least I think he did. He was a 9 last year but an 8 now, but to me the racks look similar enough, he looks a year older, and the notch in his right ear is pretty distinctive. If he's the same one I'm glad he made it and sure would like to meet him in person.

Godly you were guaranteeing you were going have one laid out within a few days earlier this year.

It's amazing how much smarter and unpredictable bucks get when they get 5 or more years of age on them. Hope he slips up for you.

Very nice! He has definitely filled out since last year. He looks like he still has good growing years ahead of him, but Iíd probably pull the trigger myself!

His left ear appears to have a goofy turn-down in both pics also

He has set his sights higher since season started. I have seen pics, bigger deer keep showing up in his areas.

What town are you near, if you donít mind me asking. That area looks more like where I hunt, not necessarily the pineywoods.

This was killed about 20 minutes north of Sulphur Springs.

Thanks! I had honestly thought that Texas would be a bust for me this year. Last year, I had several shooters on camera by mid November. This year I have only had two shooters and one of those was going to be a 5 point cull. I had never seen this one on camera. He wasn't chasing a doe just passing through and checking the feeder.

You are right... i suck. here i am loggin back on right after lunch and havent killed that deer yet. Cpt Bryan kinda nailed it. I have passed more mature deer this year than ever in my life because of not wanting to burn my tag while i have giants on camera. i sat with two 13 year old nephews while they blasted two seven year old nine pts that i have passed.

There is this dang deer I call Fiddy. He has destroyed my season and saved the life of a bunch of whoppers. Fiddy has been mia for a couple weeks so i decided to go kill that deer I posted yesterday. I pulled a card this morning and Fiddy is back in my life. Crap, I suck..
