I got lucky and was invited to hunt a couple days at a buddy's lease over in Mason county about 1.5 hours from Balcones. I'll be headed over to his lease on the 9th, hunt the 10th and 11th then head out to Balcones the afternoon of the 12th or early the 13th. Going to be a great week in the hill country!

Default Balcones Hunt 11-20-2020

This is my first time hunting out here. I got selected for compartment 1-9.
I actually enter this compartment from the highway, 1431. Has anyone hunted this spot? There are no blinds, so I can hunt anywhere inside the compartment. My hunt starts the Friday of 11/20 and goes til that Sunday.

I drew unit 1-9. Would that be the same as 9? I've never hunted Balcones and would appreciate any tips. My hunt it Nov 20-22. I'm staying at a RV park down the road and will get there on the 19th. I can scout, but do you recommend it? I don't want to spook everything. I'm also brining my utv, is it needed?

Thanks!

Hunted there last year. Cool little spot. Saw 4 deer. (2 bucks). Lots of pigs and heard turkeys coming out of the roost. But never saw them.

My wife and I parked at the gate and walked in. You don’t need an ATV. The deer and pigs came from the top hill in the middle of the unit. I would recommend not going up there. It’s really think and they were bedding up there. I can send you some screenshots of where we saw them and where we hunted.
