If anyone gets tired of shooting does I'd be willing to swap stands at some point. Last year i only saw a couple does and the rest were all bucks. 6,8 and 10 points. Two of them were legal but not big enough for me to want to shoot. I'd prefer a place with lots of doe...more action that way.

Or just tell me where all the doe hang out LOL... and I'll PM you where the bucks are.

I may just take you up on that. All I've been getting is does so far and a little six point, but I also agree that more action is fun sometimes. Plus if the does are around, the bucks will soon make an appearance come rut'n time.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya bud....sure would be nice if they'd take care of those things AFTER season ends! I had some hired contractors come in and start working about 80 yards from me a few years ago, right about 9am....not fun!

No deer was seen both morning and afternoon. Met 2 guys in the morning, one complained deer stopped to come and corn was piled up. Another one shot a spike but lost. Btw, the spike did not come to his feeder, it either passed by or went to bedding.

Anyone can shoot one with a crossbow... 100% just joking.

Good job...Sounds like we have Georgetowns first kill posted on TBH. But wait, no pics and I guess it did not happen LOL

I'll be happy if thats all I shoot is a spike. I just do not want to hunt hard until the last hunting day to get one.

Didnt see or hear anything sat morning or evening. Seems like all the deer went into hiding all of a sudden! My trail cam backs it up as i had 4 pics with deer in them (out of 300 with squrriels and coons) all of last week. Im sure it had everything to do with the late rush of folks last week. Anyways Ill probably hunt one or two fridays this month then concentrate on mid week hunts next month. Hopefully by then it will have cooled down and there will be less pressure out there. Good luck and keep updating.

Oh and last night the adventure started when I went to check in the doe. Seems that the on site Ranger at Russel Park hunts during the week so we had to go all the way round to Tejas Park. The Tejas Park Park ck station only had 3 buck tag. He said only 3 doe have been checked in including mine.

Headed out after work for a quick hunt yesturday evening. Only sighting was a tall spike that a walker on the trail bumped and ran across the field near me.

Question from a first timer - I went by Tejas park on the way back from the hunt and didn't see anything that resembled a check in station. The new live-on guy wasn't even there. So, is there a standard place that they set up at each of the parks???

From Terri Beth, Deer Station Check in Times:
Office: Mon-Fri 8a-4:30p
Russell Park: Sun-Wed 6a-8a
Tejas: Sun 7p-10p
Thur-Sat 7:30p-10p

Any times other than this a ranger must be called out to check in the deer. The gate attendants at Cedar Breaks, Jim Hogg, or Russell Park can call a ranger on duty. You can also call Terri Beth on her cell 512-844-1552, if she's available she'll check it in. Unfortunately, she will be moving to a new lake Nov. 7th

I went out yesterday evening. Saw a fawn walking to blind, then saw 2 doe 50 yards from blind in a field. They decided to run into the woods and hide, right next to my feeder LOL... I had to scare them off getting to where I sit. Wind was 100% horrible. could not have been worse. And I still had a doe almost make it to the feeder(to my left) then stop and circle around and come 3 yards shy of my hand throw on my right. Then back 3 yards shy of the feeder. She was not jumpy, just unsure. She then just walked off. Saw another big deer through the trees.

Was a pretty good cool hunt. Very very thankful for the cool weather this year.

On the board! Weighed in at 81 lbs.
Good first sit this morning. Saw about 15 deer, all does and fawns. Connected about 7:15. Bunch of deer all over the place. A few were in range (including this one) and I got drawn. Deer all spooked, but not to badly. I figured since I was drawn and could still see the deer, I might as well stay that way until I HAD to let down. Dropped the bottom cam on my knee and waited them out.

About 5 minutes (felt like 45) this girl came moseying back. She stopped broadside about 30 yds out, and I figured it was as good as it was going to get. I let the arrow go. She ran about 50 yds into an open field, not too fast, staggered a little, and went down.

I decided to get greedy, and waited another two hours hoping for a double. Maybe next time! GREAT MORNING!

Next sit on that stand planned for Monday!

Nice job, TxJon! And congras all who have got the credit.

I saw one deer was looking for food last night while driving back home from work. it is about 7pm. Saw two fresh dead deer on the road this morning while driving to work. So, i guess the deer are moving these days. should have lots of actions.
