We've all been there. And it sucks. Thats the reason I dont have cell cameras. Its one thing to find out the target deer was there while you worked etc. But its a running kick in the taint to see your target 300 yards away from where your sitting.

Yep. One of my target bucks walked by my stand back on the 18th but I was sitting in another blind 400 yards to the north.

No luck. Pretty sure I saw him run the doe by me at 11:30 on the walk out. It was in a creek bottom and I couldnít see his head. Iím going to try to get in this evening. Not sure though.

He was in my hand corn with the doe when I walked in to hunt last night. Doe saw me and spooked. Iím over it. Taking a few days off. Maybe an all day sit Thursday before heading to the river lease Friday-Sunday.

You never can tell Tony, if you busted the doe and the buck had his mind elsewhere then he could come back.

Yea I know he has no clue on what she spooked from. She never blew and he is following her. Weíve had him on camera for 3 weeks now do he seems to be somewhat of a homesteader problem is we are 43 acres. So itís tough to be too conservative lol

Trinity and 3 oaks has been slow. 4 or 5 skunked hunts and no cell service has killed my love thread. Still getting the 160 on camera and I have now picked up the rifle for that place.

Iím headed in for my first hunt at the grass farm. Wont hunt super long because I have inspections in college station starting at 11. Nothing on camera yet that Iím interested in. This place becomes a sanctuary after gun season starts so looking to see whatís moved in. Should see a bunch of deer regardless.

Photo dump from opening weekend at the river lease. I spent some time after the triple beam that just showed then enjoyed some river bottom hunting. Canít wait til my daughter starts hunting with me.

Spike in my corn now. Bumped a mature deer out of my corn when I walked up. 5 deer on camera that are mature but nothing I want to get after yet. Itís good to have a place where you can come see a bunch of deer and build your anticipation back. It can become a grind locking in on one deer

Sanctuary after gun season....I know that all too well. Saturday morning I heard more shooting than I remember in 40 years on the same dirt

Regular bucks went underground Saturday afternoon. I changed tactics and wallah!! Saw one 2 sits in a row.

I was in Newton co. Iíve never heard a Saturday morning quite like that as well. Since then movement has slowed way down.

Skunked again yesterday evening. My buddy and I are well over 100 hrs into this dude. We have clean access, but our doe numbers have plummeted since the acorns fell. This does seem to be Meatyís core area with nightly photos, every now and then he will dip out for a day or two. Have to work this morning. May hunt the grass farm tonight, weíll see what I decide. Hereís a pic of Meaty last night

I wasnít gonna post another pic for luck sake but I donít care anymore. Iím so mad, this deer has been so killable given the circumstances and somehow he has slipped through both of us. My buddy is not a member and is a stone cold east texas killer though. I think one of us gets it done in the morning. HeĎll be at the apple tree on this pen and Iíll hunt the oat patch up front. Calling our shot. We kill him in the morning.

You have to kill him now. He’s occupying to much real estate in your head. Good luck in the morning.

I learned a few years back if all I did was play Indian I would be a vegetarian. I love bow hunting but there's something special about sitting in the stand with a rifle knowing nothing is safe. Good luck this AM. They moved on camera all night at my Newton county lease.
