Hey Sir, will be there Nov. 17th--20th, hunting Wil Rehm central. I think we meet at Homer Martins, I hunted there 15yrs. before he went to season leasing.

God Bless

Hey bish, yes I remember talking to you at homers. Glad to see you're still bow hunting looking forward to being there November 1st hunting Hog Heaven South. I got a text message from Nick, he said he did not think they would have a heavy Acorn crop, I hope that's true.

The Cut is a new 400 acre pasture right across the highway from the office. Pete was kind enough to let us come up a do some scouting last month. Saw a lot of deer and axis.

Anyone who has been to Brushy Hill please give report on what the acorn crop looks like. Did you see any deer coming to corn?

We will be hunting a newly opened pasture, the Cut pasture. It is located just south of the Waver Tree pasture and staying in the Will Rehm camp house. Looking forward to just getting out in the wood again. It's been a few years. I have been recovering from knee replacement surgery this time last year.

Talked to Ava yesterday in advance of our trip next week. She said some good deer have been seen but none in bow range. So many acorns, the deer are not coming to corn yet. Good luck to everyone out there. Seven days and I'll be out there seeing what I can find. If no shooter buck shows, I will gladly take a doe.

Early season is tough down there. They haven't been hunted hard yet but still really green unless it's been overly dry.

Just got back today from a four day hunt. Two shooter bucks I saw this morning showed signs that they starting to get interested in the does. More to come of the hunt tomorrow. To everyone heading out, be safe and good hunting.

Hello everyone
Have been hearing some about this Brushy Hill ranch. Will someone give me information on location (area close to Houston?), or any contact info.

I rattled up a very nice shooter 8 pt Thursday morning down in a low area behind my blind. Couldn't get him to stop and when he did, all I could see was his butt at 18 yards. Friday morning the same buck walked by my blind at 6:36. Too dark to shoot. Ten minutes later he walks by again going back to the area he originally came from, again too dark to make a good shot. Never saw him again. Tried to stir his curiosity again around 8:00 by rattling again but it was a not go. After a few rattling sequences I looked across the oats pasture and with my bare eyes at 200 yards away could tell there was a big buck standing in the oats. Glassed it. Big heavy horned 10 pt following three does around the edge of the pasture. After a few minutes he followed them off into the brush.
All in all it was a tough hunt as you well know zookeeper. Deer early in the morning and late in the evening but they were definitely showing signs of starting the rut Friday morning. Looks like my buddy and I missed the pre-rut by one week. That's the way it goes sometimes. Still a great time. Shared the cabin with some great hunters out of San Antonio and Dallas area. Already looking forward to giving it another run next season. Hopefully we can hook up again zookeeper. Good luck the rest of the season.

And look under around the campfire and rate the deer lease. I did and it produced several pages of results. Lots of info out there and too much to post again.

We were the group coming in when y'all were leaving. Our hunt was terrible, extremely tough hunting. I believe the combination of lack of cold weather, lack of rain and full moon is making it very tough. Combined our group logged over 200 hrs in the stand and got 2 does to show for it.

It's very tough there for a few reasons, still too green, warm weather, no rut yet and still too green. Hoping for some hard freezes in the upcoming weeks before our hunt in January.

Agreed, too warm, too green and not a lot of deer movement. Hopefully this colder weather will turn them on for the hunters going out this week. Looking forward to trying again next year, just a little later in the season than the week after Thanksgiving.
