Gotta stay vigilant and careful. I once killed four in 24 hours at my Hall County place one November. And it wasn't exactly warm then.

I always watch this thread but don't comment too much since I rarely deer hunt anymore. I do have an old high school buddy coming up to hunt this weekend so I will go out with him. We will be rifle hunting though. Now days I mostly hunt pigs and coyotes, mostly at night with thermal, plus some daytime calling.

I knew Jody for probably 5-6 years before his passing. Good man.

I bet a lot of you guys drive right by my work on the way up to hunt. On the east side of 83, about a mile south of Wellington. Anyone who wants to stop in and BS for a minute is welcome.

I drive that route often. Shoot me a pm where you're at and I'll bring you a cup of coffee next time I've got a few free minutes. I've hunted from boarder to boarder and worked all over the world. Some of the finest people I have ever run across have been up that direction. If y'all had a tournament lake for me to fish in it'd be hard for me to not relocate lol

Got an interesting set of picture last night that looked pretty suspect. I called Coby Sanders the Gray County Game Warden after 9pm, apologized for calling so late and explained the pics. Before I could get the pics sent he was in route to see if he could catch what looked like to both of us someone poaching one of my pastures. Less than 20min later he calls laughing and explains that it's the guys on a combine planting the field. I apologized for wasting his time and he sincerely told me to call ANYTIME. That's the 3rd dealings I've had with Coby and have had several with Jared the Wheeler Co GW. They have all been seamless and it sure is nice having that peace of mind when you're over 8 ours away.

I'll be up on Friday boys! Hope the bucks are getting on their feet!

For those asking, My name is Jeff and I am production manager at Plas-Mac, Inc. We custom build water and foam tanks for fire trucks. Big silver metal building with a white roof a mile south of Wellington on 83, east side of the road. I will be bailing out of there at 3 tomorrow though, taking an old friend from out of town out to hunt. Anyone who wants my phone number send me a pm and I will send it to you. Mostly I hunt out around Lutie between Wellington and Shamrock, but also out north of Quail. Plus several other areas around the county. My son farms out around Quail and north of there, plus some SE of McLean.

Speedgoat, I sure do like seeing those young ones with successful hunts.

Hadn’t posted much in a long time....Taking out my 9 and 12 year old this weekend and hoping to get them on one of these deer. Had the super wide 8 in during youth weekend but my oldest couldn’t get steady enough to make the shot.

Good to see you on here again, good luck to those kids getting one of those hosses on the ground. Look forward to LDPs . I'll be in Kent Co chasing a good one with the stick this weekend, hope they are moving!

Things seemed really slow this weekend from what we saw and from folks I talked to. Not much movement in areas I usually see a lot. We weren't hunting feeders though.

Checking in from Hall County and based on thread activity, it looks like huntinghas been slow for the Panhandlefolks.

I've been here a couple days and while it's been warm, I've still seen fairly good movement. The only problem is that I've not seen any buck worth shooting yet.

Wish it would cool off.

Hunt safe and best of luck, y'all.

I killed a good eight point yesterday in Hall. Three bucks chasing one doe. It seems to have started finally. I just happen to be in the right spot. I can send someone a picture of the deer to post if you text me. I can’t post pics off my phone. 903 715 55 8 nine.
