Good evening of glassing, saw multiple groups of deer in every direction, go to glass on a hill tomorrow then find the trails we have been observing and set up multiple blinds almond them. Saw two nice bucks fighting in the area. High hopes!

Set up off a nice little river pond. Tons of trails and tracks. Forgot the pics but it’s down at the base of those red hill sides with white on the tops. Won’t have service so it will be awhile before I can update. GO ASTROS!!

Nothing this morning but thank we found a honey hole. Moved blinds and about to head back. About 300 yards to the right is a food plot where we saw bucks fighting from a distance our first night glassing.

I hunted the Sampson unit before and the only deer I saw were up over the bluffs in the mesquite trees. It was a heck of a hike.

Ahhh, didn't realize they separated the 2 now, back when I drew this hunt you could shoot either/or. That kinda sucks for the mule deer guys next week, people romping all over this week already.

Well no luck but it will still go down as my favorite hunt to date. It is some very pretty country especially when my normal hunting grounds are in Victoria. Saw tons of animals every day but no shots. Heading home then I will post a little recap. Also, if anyone gets drawn for this hunt feel free to pm me as I feel like I have a pretty good grasp of some areas. Thanks for following along!

Got your pm and will respond on Monday when I get back to my laptop so I don’t have to type it all on my phone, lol. I will also send you a link to where I bought a great map for around $20 that really came in handy and was better than the one they had at the main office

The roads pretty much just go on the out side of each unit so it’s up to you how far you want to walk in. Each spot we had a “blind” set up was between .8-1.5 miles off the road but we also had multiple creeks to deal with which made direct routes hard to come by. Talking with other hunters most were just hunting a few 100 yards from the road which probably explains why we saw more than most. Also would average about 5 miles a day just walking around but we really explored our unit.
