Default Anybody wanna go to First Point?

We had somebody in our group for the week before Thanksgiving that had some things come up and wonít be able to make it. Weíll hunt the evening of Wednesday the 15th, then all day Thursday Friday and Saturday, then hunt Sunday morning and head home. Itíll be 4 days total at $150 per day so itíll cost $600 for the hunt plus whatever you spend on fuel, food, etc. If youíre interested shoot me a PM. No serial killers please.

First Point is a good ranch in a good area. There are some very big deer there, but it has been in operation for a long time now, and the big ones are smarter than heck! There is a lot of hunter pressure due to how many folks book and hunt there. Most folks do not get a big buck, even though they are there.

Tough hunting ain't the word! I had to dig a 4ft deep hole with a pic axe and shovel in the middle of a javelina bush. Dont bring a pop up tent

This pretty well sums it up. You'll always see deer, but you gotta be on your toes and really hide your setups to kill one. I've managed to kill deer 2 out of 3 trips down there but there's definitely some work involved!!

CRM95...are you taking a popup or a mobile tripod (if there is such a thing)?

Sounds exceptionally challenging.

I'm not 100% sure. I have both, but I'm watching the weather. If it's gonna be dry I'll probably take a tripod, any rain in the forecast and I'll take a pop up. They both work but you have to brush them in really good. Homemade brush blinds work too. But they have to be really tight and look natural with a small shooting window.The wind is important like always. To me though, just from what I've seen, the deer here at home will bust you if they get downwind before they'll pick you off. It seems to me those deer down there are just the opposite and will see anything that looks out of the ordinary before they wind you.

Hunted there 2 times. The deer are so spooky you cannot hunt from a tripod or pop up. He corns the roads every evening and if you put out any extra corn the deer will notice and just walk around you. I did see a few decent deer but so spooky you couldn't even blink your eyes and their gone. They have some really nice rattlesnakes their too. Had one crawl under a tripod in a cactus and when I got down had my phone in my pocket on vibrate and my son called me and nearly pooped my pants,,,,,,,,
