I'm on the Young / Throckmorton line just a few miles West of Murray. We bought the place a few months ago and have put a ton of work into getting it ready. I'm ready to enjoy it a little.

Where about?
We are about half between Murray and Woodson little south of 209

OP I haven't seen it this green this late in the year either.
I've been hunting out there 8 years and thought I missed my turn into the lease last time.
It's so green it was almost unrecognizable

I've also never seen so many turkey and quail out there.

All growing up I hunted that area. Cloud Ranch. It's where I learned the woods.
Last time I hunted there was 2010 and we had a million coyotes. Curious if they're still thick out there.

I drive just past y'all into Woodson. I butt up against the city limits basically....corner of 209/CR 390

Yotes are pretty bad out there and the quail population has been getting better as well!

Eastern Young here, I finally gave up on the weeds dying and have been running the dozer to make trails so the deer can walk around. I have not had many acorns since the fires, and the deer are hammering the protein and feeders still. We have lots of big healthy deer this year.

I am also on the Young/Throckmorton County line (just west of Padgett). Earlier in the summer, all was very green and lots of new grasses, etc. I was out there on Saturday to check feeder, camera, etc. Didn't look as brown as it normally would this time of year, but the ground definitely has not been getting as much rain as I've gotten at home in Parker and Tarrant counties. Pond near camp was way down from earlier in summer.
More bucks (and shooters) on my camera since July 5 than I had all of last year.

We can't be far south of you, we are West of the Jean highway.

Mucho grass, not much on camera thus far to worry about.
