Back at it this morning. It feels good outside today (so far but it's going to warm up).

Seeing lots of deer still which is good. Gotta 7 point with a double throat patch that looks really cool. Nontypical 10 in here as well but he's really young and not as big as the 7 point. Several typical hill country 8 points coming and going. Not as many doe as yesterday but they'll be around soon enough.

Saw 12 turkey yesterday afternoon at the feeder. 5 were this years hatch and the rest were hens.

Guesses on age here? I will tell you this guy has been on my Blanco County lease since I got it in 2017. He has been caught on cam every season and has never been seen by a hunter.

I’m gonna guess he’s about 43 years old Casey. It’s fun to hunt them when they are that sneaky.

Well I hunted him Thursday-Sunday but he only came out at night except for one morning (the morning I was in Austin). Saw about 20 deer a hunt but they are all young so I don't think he has any competition to make him come out in the day right now but with this cool front moving in Friday morning may be the ticket.

I’m guessing he hunts over hand corn away from the feeder and the buck never came to the hand corn so he didn’t have a shot?

I have no clue though, just guessing. I usually have my set ups around 30 yards out, then hand corn a lot closer. Makes for better photography and videos. Plus the deer donít have to move as much for each kernel.

Yes sir thats why. Feeder pen is to my left and I needed him out in front of me for pictures and a clear shot.

Thanks for the clarification. I was wondering if we were in for another 8 page tracking/recovery LDP post since 'he never left the pen'.
Will be watching for the real deal. Good luck.

Got a decent 8 point in Blanco County Saturday night. The shot isn't perfect but was enough to kill the deer. However, I called in Carroll Kelly and his dogs and they finished the job. By the time we caught up with the dogs, following the chase, the deer was essentially dead.

Excellent video! So what was the determination with the shot?? Looked like it should have been one lung minimum.

Thanks! We're thinking one lung. He went 600 yards from the shot sight. Just a tough critter. Here is a pic from a trailcam about 250 yards from where I shot him, and about 10 minutes after the shot. He's panting, which indicates lung. I did not go into the cavity when dressing. The broadhead was destroyed so I'm thinking it hit offside shoulder.

Blood we found about 50 yards to the gate under a brush pile. It had some froth to it.

Nice Casey! Cool video too.

That’s a beast you’re chasing TXhoghunter. Can’t wait to see an LDP of that guy. Now that you’ve seen him in person, do you have any guess as to what you think he’ll tape out at?

I’m finally going to get to hunt this next weekend for the first time. Between regular work days, classes for work I gotta go out of town for, weddings, and time spent with the wife I’m not gonna have a ton of time in the stand this year. My wife is coming with me this go round and if she wants to we are gonna try and hunt one of the junkiest deer I’ve ever had the pleasure of growing. Got a few other management bucks on the list for me. No trophy’s are regularly showing up at any of the spots right now. Several great bucks around but they are all 3-4 year olds. If we can keep them safe, we’ll have a few that are gonna be close to the 150” mark in 2-3 more years.

He was. However, I believe the chase killed him. When we got to him, he was done.

I saw this buck last weekend who is a 6.5 year old 10 point named acorn fest. He is my plan B in case something happens to my main target buck.

Setup a new tree stand spot where I can shoot into the back side of the pen where ocho seems to be going to.
