I haven't been out this week. I went on private land so I could gun hunt with a buddy.

I'm still having problems with access and location. I have only been hunting close to the road off bobcat.

Is the water still covering all everything?

It looks like it's still 10' above normal, so yes it's still covering most of the land to the east and west of 377.

I've had some good sits and some not so good sits out there. Haven't seen any chasing yet, but somethings that has to be the right place at the right time.

Almost 2 weeks out there and I put my eyes on only 2 shooters. I passed a spike 3 days ago and a dink wide 8 the week before. Only saw chasing on 1 morning sit. The entire east side was under water so long it's a messs. I had to leave cameras that I couldn't get to. The bucks seemed to be moving along the waters edges as it was receding. That's what the sign was showing and we visibly witnessed several sits. I ran out of time. Back in Houston now to start a new project and I'll be back in a few more weeks to spend another week in there. Never say DIE

From what has been posted, the park on the Flower Mound side is covered up in toads. I'm guessing they are trapped over there. This photo was posted this morning.

Please note: This area is a no hunt zone and I would be caught over there in camo.

How is the squirrel hunting? I am new to hunting lake grapevine and I did not put in for the deer draw but I plan on putting in next year? I am just itching to do some hunting.

Squirrels are heavily populated. Not sure if they have any general permits left, but can't hurt to ask.

You need a general hunting permit to hunt anything I believe. You can pick it up at the core office. Just like the deer. NO SQUIRRELS AT THE VINE EITHER. Try Tawakoni for SQUIRRELS

Yep. Not sure how many, but I got the impression that they had a decent amount left. I asked the guy in the office about the deer lottery for this year. He said they had around 400 put in and 250 were issued. Thatís was better odds than I expected.

That deer has been making the rounds. He looks like he is only 2.5 to 3.5 years old. Apparently, he is very photogenic. Here is a close up of him.

No doubt. The toads have found a new place to live peacefully without arrows being flung at them.

The creek is still over the banks in places. I entered at the knob creek trail head. Loop 1 was ok. Loop 2 started getting muddy and had a couple of shallow water spots. Once I got to loop three I was just slogging through water, sometimes up to my knees.

Sorry, I don't know where the park with the boat ramp is so i can't answer that.

Well this sucks. He was a good buck.

Looks like a rifle shot but the warden wasn't for sure.

They didn't let me keep the head.
