thanks man...here is the persimmon tree:



what kind of sucks is about 40 yards past it is a house and the owner had a spin feeder on my side of the fence 3 years ago till i left a neat little note on it. now it is sitting on his side of the fence about 20 yards from his back porch. that is one of the areas where i have plans for a strip of blue panic come spring.

the "front corner" of my place is off to the left of this tree, i have never paid much attention to it hunting-wise, there are houses all along the fence and the neighbor from above isnt far either, i drove through it yesterday and it is littered with beds and trails, although i have never seen deer in it. would be a great bedding area if i can get some good screen to come up along the fence, wont help me any on accessing the place though.

man, it was really slow this weekend. i saw a few small bucks and some does but none of the bigger bucks and no big. the last pic of him was at 2am on 9/25, really hoping he hasnt decided to head south for winter already. as far as i know none of the neighbors got him either, i know 2 of them with about 50-60 acres each that bowhunt.

its really frustrating, it looks like a good front coming through friday night so i will wait till saturday to hunt again.

It's funny how they get wary about this time of year. The only shooter we have on our place never showed either.

Keep us posted and good luck on getting that stud!

Thanks guys, had to go fix a feeder today and checked the cameras, no pics of him. Last sighting was at 2am on tbe 25th. Its pretty frustrating. I will be down there either friday afternoon or for sure saturday for the cold front. The 10pt he was running with was there early this morning and i baited up a spot that he was hitting a fewmonths ago, just gotta sit and hope at this point.

All ive heard that was killed around me this weekend was a doe...so far.

I wanna yell right now.

I hope I'm wrong because I've been following this since last year and I'd love to see you kill him, but I think your deer is summering on your place and moving off in the fall.

I fed protein all summer. I've been throwing corn since June. I've been hauling water to troughs. I got my first buck pic a week ago. It is like this every year. I have no bucks in the summer and they start showing up in October. When they show up, they stay all fall and into spring when they disappear again until the next fall. It is frustrating.

well sadly, i agree. thats one of the reasons i tried the food plots this year to keep as much food on my place as possible with hopes that he would stick around through the season. i dont see many older bucks at all through the season.

there is a piece of land, about 250 acres or so, close to me that ia not hunted and i have always thought he moved to, i was ready to pull out some $$ this year to try to hunt it if needed but found out a few weeks ago it was recently acquired by the sabine river authority, thus killing any hopes of hunting there....

didnt see any bucks last night, the last pic of the ninja was on the 25th, i am afraid he is gone once again.

i moved a camera, and will move another in a few days, one to the front and one to the very back, to see if he is still around and is just runnin' where i aint. if he has completely disappeared from my place i have one more plan of action.

i believe that i know where he goes every year, its where i would go if i were him, its a few properties away and is a place that is not legal to hunt. and i think that the reason he disappears once bow season starts is that he may be encountering some hunters/pressure before he makes his way to me, so he just backs off and stays put where he is. so i have a plan

all hope is not lost....yet

oh yeah, the food plot is looking good

since the plot is pretty much split in two pieces, about .5 acre each, i planted BFO on one side and wheat on the other. me and a buddy bought some other things to go in it too.

on the oats side i had about 20lbs of soybeans left from the spring that i threw out, they are coming up like crazy, and also 3lbs of sugar beets.

on the wheat side i put out a few lbs of purple top turnips one on end and 3lbs of groundhog radishes on the other end.

i have the four corners, about another .33-.5 acre worth of clover, i planted alyce clover and chicory in the spring, it struggled through the summer but is looking decent after the recent rains, we overseeded these spots with some durana that is already coming up.

we also opened a new spot of about 1/3 of an acre that we planted some alfalfa and tall tine tubers in, its pretty covered up with leaf litter though so i'm not sure how it will do.

it all got good rain last week and shouldve gotten some good rain last night after i left. although the hard rain last week bunched up most of the seed it is still spreadout decently since i went so heavy.

maybe, just maybe, it will be enticing enough once winter hits to bring that buck back, if i havent tracked him down by then...or if he's not already in someone elses freezer

If he has survived this long I promise you he ain't in someone's freezer. Food plots are for does and does are for bucks. Think of the possibilities even if he doesn't show, a doe on your plot may drag in an even bigger buck that has been hanging out on some other property all summer. That's the cool thing about hunting you just never know what is going to appear, especially in East TX. All three of my biggest bucks from East TX to date were ones I never had a pic of and they just appeared out of no where. Good luck and keep your head up we're only a few weeks away from that magic time of year when anything can happen-

thanks man, i am pretty sure i would have heard if he had been taken by now. but i was all excited for the rut last year too and had very little activity around me, sightings and pics all fell off big time until about thanksgiving, pretty sure it was due to the acorn crop though, and there are hardly any on the trees this year.

its just weird, i have had very few, less than 10, pics of mature bucks on my place from october to december, hopefully the plots will thicken up and change that this year.

nothing, no pics since the 25th. found out a neighbor didnt recover a "10pt with 20" spread" on opening morning, i dont like the sound of that.

i did get permission to hunt a very small parcel a few properties east of mine, closer to government land that i think he runs off to every year, i put a camera on it yesterday, hope to get back out there wednesday and see what the pics show.

thanks guys, yet another frustrating season at the pasture lol

my buddy was out at the place this morning and had this buck come in and mill around at about 75 yards...



he had 12-15 deer in front of him at the feeder and chum pile, guess he was waitin to see if the buck would get close.

he said the plot is coming in like crazy, should be like carpet in a week or so.

we'll see.

yes, i was very excited to hear that this morning, first pic of a mature buck on my place this late in october since i have had cameras going, 3 years. a few have filtered back in around mid december but even they were 3-4 year olds.....it was very encouraging, i am probably gonna haul butt down there and check that new camera too lol.

looking forward to your updates man, its time to put some bucks on the ground.

Awesome story, for me half the fun is all the off season work. Then when it all comes together its just that much more rewarding. Keep up the good work and hunt hard, they have to show up some time.

a buddy went out last thursday and said the plot is coming in real good, especially the BFO and soybean side, the wheat side is a little behind. i hunted last night but didnt get out and walk around, from where i sat i could see the durana starting to fill in though.

the day after we planted we got a real heavy rain on it ad it washed some of the seed around so low areas so those spots are already real thick, the rest of it is coming up good though after the rain last week.

i will get some pics next time i make it out.
