Just had a nice 7 here for about 15 min. He looks like he has potential.

The season is young. You'll get a crack at the 10.

No dice this morning. Saw lots of young bucks but none of the 3 bucks I'd be happy with.
Probably will not be back out until Thanksgiving Sunday and Monday. Next weekend going to SA with the kids to learn a little Texas history. Bummed that I blew my chances the last 2 weekends but staying true to trad. Is worth it in my book. I'm sure other chances will present themselves.

You are looking at this all wrong! You didn't blow your chances!!! You got meat in the freezer, and that's a chance you took 100% advantage of! It just didn't happen on the big bucks this time.

JMHO

Good luck next time out!!!

Some nice bucks! You’ll get em. No big deer killed = another trip to the lease, and that’s always a good thing!

You guys are right, no big buck does mean more trips to the lease.
And I did fill the freezer. The hunts have been a success in that I've had a great time in the woods and I will have some sausage. Cant wait until I get back out there.

Thank you and as it turns out I don't have to go to SanAntonio this weekend so I'm headed to the lease tonight. I have to work tomorrow but I took off the first half of the shift so I dont have to be at work until 7:30 PM. I'm going to sit most of the day tomorrow in hopes one of the better quality bucks come in. Tonight my son and I are going to sit on the back of our 11 acres. We sat lastnight and saw 8 bucks. All were on the neighbors 400ac chasing does and all but one were to small for AR. Well suddenly a doe jumped the fence and walked straight to my hand corn then the one buck bigger than the AR restrictions jumped the fence. Reed got ready for a shot ( rifle ) but the buck stopped and laid down in the trees. After about 30 min she walked to the fence and jumped back over with him in tow, no shot.
Reed was disappointed but I told him since no one is allowed to hunt the 400 ac place we would likely get another shot. I didn't tell him this but I saw a better buck walking through the trees so I really hope that one comes in tonight

Had a doe come in for about 15 min. Then had two fox playing around us. They were having each other, jumping in and out of an attack of old tires and even climbing a cedar tree. My boy says that made the hunt regardless of a deer or not.

Got in the brush blind this morning. Had a lot of deer movement from daylight until I crawled out at 11. My target 10 point came in for about 1 min. While adjusting my sitting position for the shot a doe I had no idea was 15 feet away blew and he was gone.Dang It!!
It was still only around 9:30 so i settled back in. An hour later i stood up and took a couple steps to a spot i could see down a draw. Had my bow in hand and saw a doe headed my way about 30 yds away. She took a leak and closed to about 15 feet of me. This ghilli suit makes me look like a real big cedar I guess. As she passed I happen to look in the direction she came from and just them a really good 8 walked out and sniffed her pee, then headed right at me. Now I'm stuck, cant move back to my chair, cant squat down ( at this point surrounded tight with chest high cedars) so i just stood there as he walked 15 feet past. Very exciting to say the least. The spot I'm standing would only allow for one shot and he would have to move about 10 yes to his left. Well he stayed just shy of that. He ate my corn with the girls for 15 min them walked away.
Great morning and right now I'm headed back to the brush blind for the rest of the day. Then off to work.

Well the adventure continues. Just got in the brush blind. Been seeing deer up till 11 most other trips. Hoping #1 shows up. This time I'm not moving a muscle until he has been here for 10 - 15 min and has gotten comfortable. Anyway wish me luck please

Well another week and another attempt. Worked the FD yesterday. Got there this morning and got 8n the brush blind at 9. Sat until 11. Saw the same big busted up 8. So this afternoon I'm actually back in my favorite tree. Hoping the big 10 is in this area these days since he is not over in the brush blind area the last 4 hunts over there.

Man was it slow. I got in the tree and 3:30 and at 3:45 a 7 walked in then a doe. They stayed 15 min then left. Nothin came in after that. But with this moon I figured it might be slow.
Always a good time

Well actually I finally had that 10 at 10 yards last week. Since I had not seen his for a few weeks I decided to head to my old reliable ladder stand. At 4:30 he came to the hand corn. I got ready to shoot but it was difficult due to the fact that there were 3 other bucks and a couple doe right there as well. I had a good 20 min to look him over close up for the first time and well, decided I'd let him go. He has a really good rack....130 at least but his body and face said he was young. I could not believe that after weeks of trying to get a shot I was letting him go. So, I decided id now focus on a big 8 I had passed a few times already and had not seen for a few weeks as well. About the time I decided id hope for the 8......he walks out at 30 yds. He is 30 or more pounds heavier than the 10, he has more mass than I originally thought and he is certainly older. I never did get a shot on him but I am headed back this Friday for a full weekend.

I think it's cool that you had him at 10 yards and passed him. That takes focus and control!!

Good Luck this weekend!!

I think he will make it through this season. I saw him in the same home area last year so I think he hangs out in the middle of our lease. He will absolutely be a great buck next year and I hope to have some good ldp's.

It's crazy, 2-3 years ago I would not have considered passing him. I guess at 49 I've reached another level of hunter. In 30 years on my lease he is probably tied ( score ) for the biggest buck ive seen. But, hopefully, next year he will be the best I've ever seen

Lots of fun....probably the most fun I've had in years. Last weekend was spent with my son and his gun. He's 10 and looking for his third deer. Saw some young 8's but none of the 10 or so rag horn culls I wanted him to shoot. But we had fun together hunting and camping. This weekend I cant get down there so it might not happen this year ( big buck ) but I hope to get another deer in the freezer before the end of the season.

Finally back at it for a couple days. I'd love to get a shot at the big 8 but something tells me I better be satisfied with a doe if I get a shot.
