For those who have success hunting the Coyotes what is your strategy? I have heard that last two hours before dawn are the best to call them in....... I will be honest it is really hard for me to wake up in the mornings so I have never tried this. If you are calling what call do you use?

We have been up the last few days, saw quite a few deer moving, not as many bucks like when they were rutting hard a few weeks ago but still some good looking animals.

Just got back from our lease and it was real slow. Deer weren’t moving at all, was the slowest I have seen it in two years. Ever since the beginning of the season nothing has been coming to our feeders and I was blaming a lot of that on the acorns but those should be long gone by now I would think. There is corn below every feeder not being eaten. I am not sure what is going on.

Went down to the lease this weekend. Today and Saturday were absolutely beautiful. Got over an inch of rain in the past week. Heard quite a few turkeys so I am excited for turkey season to open in a few weeks. Hoping to start finding some sheds here shortly also.

Glad to hear the rain is falling out there. I went down the other weekend and was surprised at everything that still had antlers. Figured the elk and sika would have certainly dropped antlers by now. We have been doing a lot of clearing in the oak pastures and going to try out a food plot or three this spring. Have a few spots identified that don't have hardly any rocks.

The protein feeders we added kick ***. Don't have a single picture of coons using them yet which was my biggest fear. They also seem to be holding up to the aoudad and elk just fine. We aren't feeding protein as a means to grow big animals, but more so to attract them and keep them around. It certainly seems to be satisfying those goals.

Thanks Hunter, dirt nap! Those aoudad are some weary animals, I want one with my bow but all nut focus is about to go to elk..

I couldn’t determine what the cause was. My guess is he got gored by another ram, broke a big cedar splinter off in his leg, or burst his bladder. We drained it and it shot out with pressure for a good 5-6 minutes. Inside of his leg was rotten. He could hardly stand up so I killed him, wouldn’t have shot him otherwise.

Great work! Looking forward to an elk story in the future...

I was glad to see that we got some rain also. We also got a little when I was driving in on Friday. Just a reminder, I am just barely in Edwards County on the North side. When I look in other folks weather station South West of me on weather underground they show over an inch also.

Those are awesome photo's. I am surprised those elk and aoudad don't run through that protein in a matter of days.

I am jealous you have an area that you can put a food plot on. We only have one little area and the hogs are always in it so I am sure it would get torn up in a matter of days.

How did everyone’s deer season end up? Our deer stopped moving mid November and never got going again. We had corn piled up below our feeders which has never happened before. The only thing I can think of is the acorns never soured due to the lack of rain after they dropped.

We are a ways East from there but looking at satellite imagining on a macro level, that area very promising.

Anyone here familiar with the Wells Ranch down 337 about 10 miles West of Leakey? I believe the owners name is Albert Wells. Any info would be appreciated.

I made it out this past weekend. MAN it was cold, it was 38 but the wind was blowing and was in the mid 40's the majority of the day. It was very green where I hunt. We got .7" within the last couple weeks, I can not recall exactly which day the rain came. Still only at around 2" for the year.

Most of the deer still had their horns until the last few days in March or first few days in April. I was happy to see them munching on our protein and cottonseed though.

I'm 7 miles west of Leakey on 337. Not familiar with the Wells Ranch, what exactly you looking for? I probably know some folks who can help out. Is it on the north or south side of 337?

He had a lease available and I was hesitant because I knew nothing about the place. I believe he was on the north side of 337.

We usually kill 1-2 a year around the camp area. Heard one this past weekend but he was buried in a brush pile. That was Thursday before the temps dropped Friday night.

We’ve been doing a lot of cutting/grappling cedar as well as bulldozing under the oaks and pruning dead limbs and mossball covered limbs. The moss has gotten out of control on a lot of the oaks so we have rigged up a spray system. Five 330 gallon totes on a flatbed with a pump and hose. Mixing baking soda in water and spraying the oaks with a pump/hose. It appears to be working well as the moss that’s been sprayed is shriveled up and is dark and dead looking. Just waiting on time for the wind and rain to knock it out over time.

Looks like a pretty good portion of the counties got some rain this morning. We sure did need it.
