This land has been in their family since 1968 and is truly a hunters paradise. We hit it just right as the rut was kicking off and saw several deer on our trip. I was after either a past prime deer or a management deer, and I ended up connecting on a trophy ďmanagementĒ 8. On a cool south Texas morning on the 17th it started with young bucks sparring in the senderos. After a 20 min stretch with no activity, I tickled some horns together and this brute of a deer came out. An older 10 point with short brows. He fit the bill for what was on the hit list, but being my first time down to this place, I really wanted a no brainer to shoot and was scared to shoot the wrong deer. As I had the gun on him and doing too much thinking, he walked off out of sight.



I was a little down as it was the last morning hunt, but all that changed as a mature 8 walked out into the same sendero with a harem of doe.



These bucks are smart and he fed for a painstaking 30 mins either facing me, butt to me, or right behind the does. Finally, as he was about done feeding, he turned and stepped back toward the mesquite flat presenting me a broadside, but hurried shot. I squeezed the .308 and he didnít really hump or do much of anything at all. Dumbfounded, I thought I missed the deer and he didnít know where the shot came from. However, he then turned took 2 steps back toward the sendero opening and collapsed. I ended up hitting him a little back, but I clipped lungs and must have hit main artery. So happy I ended up with a lethal shot and a quick kill. When I got up to him there was no ground shrinkage at all and I knew I had killed my largest buck to date. He ended up taping out at 138 5/8. Iím still on cloud 9 and to end the trip that evening we killed a 6 man limit of dove. Iíve never been to Argentina, but I can only imagine it has to be similar. We couldnít even load our guns fast enough before another group of 20+ was on us. Enjoy the pics. Now itís time to get mad at these east tx deer for a couple more weeks.

Rolling with the punches today. Blessed to be able to hunt, and upset that I’m as bitter as I am dangling from this post oak. After scouting from a distance last weekend, moving in close with just a few days available to hunt. I get caught up getting everything ready for the freeze…. With no assistance. Running later than I hoped since the site I planned to sit in was (hopefully) a travel area for early movement. Pulling up I noticed mud and o and down black top…. And neighbor gate open. Logging …. And I can hear limber parked next to sanctuary where my platform is hung. Wondered why today I got ZERO pics on property. Usually get 15-25 a day. Between the north and south neighbors they have relocated 2 of the most mature deer in my county. Flew 2 miles south and grabbed another platform from a set and set up on a ridge for this evening. I don’t have time to push any deeper than I am. If I pull anything off here it will be of none of my doing. Both of the same deer use this ridge but I haven’t seen main event in at least a week. And no pics of big Jim in several weeks.

First world problems. God is good, and this weather is proof!

That's a great buck!

So did your buddy tell you after the fact that that 10 would've been OK to kill after all?

Thanks everyone! Yes, he definitely said he was mature, but he did mention when I asked him if he could choose between the 2, he would have me shoot the 8. So looks like I ultimately made the perfect decision.

Anyone planning on hunting Friday morning? The forecasted "feels like" is around zero in my area, I have never hunted in those kinds of temps.

I am not worried so much about getting cold sitting in a box with a heater but just wondering how our deer will react not being used to this kind of cold. Will they move much or just be laid up?

I have a few times. Activity was extremely slow. Even in the sleet and snow. Seems they pile up in the bedding areas and do their best to stay warm.

I’m predicting that the deer will move later in the morning when and if the sun pokes out. It’s my opinion that deer move and feed to stay warm. Just like cattle. If the cold wind is howling they will stay bedded in the woods. But that’s just from my experience.

I would tend to agreeÖ super cold/frosty mornings have traditionally started slow, but thatís just my observations. Seems like they hunker down in the coldest part of the day, but move later. A smart move, if one was hunting Friday, might be to get out laterÖ 7:30 or 8:00 and ride the rock the rest of the day.

Wouldnít be a safe bet to say they will be moving good ahead of this? As in tonight and tomorrow? That would be my bet, too bad I am not in stand.

I had a bachelor group on cam yesterday too. I realized I had seen that same group for a spit second Saturday morning, and lo and behold one of them is a shooter.

I'm not hunting this weekend at all though. There is such a thing as too cold down here, and these temps will fall under that category.

As I cleared the wood line on what was possibly the last hunt for myself this season. With the distant faint sound of an unknown deer blowing snot all over the woods to my north. And the excited chatter of the logging crew to my south. I looked ahead and realized Iím still blessed in so many ways. If I donít make it out till youth season. It was a season full of really big deer to chase

Lol. When I know he’s dead. The pressure around that area is the most ridiculous mess I’ve seen. I’d be dumb to think of the 30 people hunting in that area I’m the only one with pics… which explains the warehouse of feeders on fence line. Bee bop still has a tag and youth season if it goes that far

Got word today that another neighbors wife killed “The big 8”(Big Jim)…. Finally got confirmation today. Wasn’t him it was “Copy Cat” a mature buck, but a long ways from big Jim sized!

For those who are going to brave the wind and cold I am going to reference Steve's thread on pressured deer. He talks about the corner effect and how deer reposition as the wind shifts making them vulnerable during that short period of time. For most of you the wind is likely already shifted, but I wanted to add an observation to Steve's point. I am able to watch deer year around here at the house and have witnessed this corner effect many times. As the bucks are already beginning to get back into their bachelor groups, I have noticed these groups of deer almost always face multiple directions when they bed in a group and usually on the edge of a slight rise or ridge. This makes it very hard to stalk a deer.

I am able to watch deer year around here at the house and have witnessed this corner effect many times. As the bucks are already beginning to get back into their bachelor groups, I have noticed these groups of deer almost always face multiple directions when they bed in a group and usually on the edge of a slight rise or ridge. This makes it very hard to stalk a deer.
Great info Captain. Thanks for the reference.

Latest I have ever punched a tag in East Texas, just a broken up old man that I have passed twice in early November then had a close encounter around Thanksgiving where I almost shot him with both my daughters in the stand. On what was going to be my last hunt of the season, possibly the last ever on this piece of property, I decided it would be a fitting end to this chapter.
