Yes but only in bow season, youth season or the short general season in late November, the 24th through the 27th I believe.

Went out on Sunday. Was walking/scouting from noon til 8pm and I can feel it today.

Jumped deer in three different locations. Still seeing lots of does and fawns. I see at least two or three fawns every trip out which is great. Just not seeing many bucks. Got a small 7 or 8 on camera, he won't be legal.

Got a owl, coyote, pigs and deer all in one cam within two weeks at a new location.

Finally found some oaks that dropped acorns last year though I'm not sure what kind they are (I know they are a species of red oak, I think maybe a pin oak). Bunch of rubs around this stand of oaks from last year so it ought to be a good spot this year. Problem is it's at least a 30 min walk on foot.

Here some pics and vids I got:

Anybody know what species of red oaks those are from the leaf or acorn? I think it's a Shumard but not sure.

Or any ideas on the blue berry looking plant of the fig looking thing? What are those??

That is a spotted albino black panther! Quite rare! They hunt, kill, and eat the elusive chupacabra. Better be real careful in that area!

I'm new here and not a bow hunter (Yet). Just recently started going back out to the Grasslands, hadn't been out there since I was a kid. Did some hiking and a little rabbit hunting this past spring. Planned on doing a Spring Turkey hunt cause I had a lead on where some were but couldn't get the time for it. Daughter wants to bow hunt and I have been thinking about getting into re curve.

I have a .50 Black Powder and a 16 gauge Wingmaster. I'm trying to decide which one to take for deer this upcoming season out at LBJ. Ive heard its hard to take deer out there but Its all I got. No friends with land and not paying money to get on a lease. Besides I just like being out in the woods with my gun and a snack whether I get anything or not.

But for the life of me I keep thinking I read in the rules somewhere that you can use nothing larger than #4 buckshot on Public/NF land. Ive been combing through the rules and i cant find the answer. Does anyone here know?

There is no restriction on buckshot size on the LBJ.

Cloud, I'd recommend the ML over the 16gauge. With the ML you have a much better choice of what to shoot, 16ga is somewhat limited in shotshell selection.

JMO, and I love my 16 Wingmaster. If you had a 12, then that would level the field somewhat.

Shot size becomes an issue on the COE lakes.

Maybe something will use that rub again this year. I've seen deer use the same rub for several years. Sometimes more than one deer will use and old established rub.

Small 8pt running behind what looks like a doe. Doesn't look legal though. Next year he should be a decent buck though.

I'd upload the video but tapatalk keeps giving me a network error.

Mexican plum
Prunus Mexicana

I'd have to see more of the plant/bush. But I've always called them wild plums if it's what I think. They grown in thickets sometimes. Deer love them. So dose everything else including rodents. And snakes sometimes hang around them for the rodents.

They taste pretty darn good too, when fully ripe. But have a large seed in the middle.
When not ripe, they can be sour.
