Report.
Took my oldest boy up last weekend to do a little work.
Movement is high.
Consumption is unacceptable, 1500 lbs. of protein in 3 weeks.
These girls need to calm down.

I'd posted earlier about finding the skull of a great buck that died next to the pen, sometime during the winter.

Followed by finding a second nice buck later this summer who also died near the pen last winter.
I have no idea what got them.

The draught years of 2011-12 with low recruitment seem to be evident in the pasture I hunt. Best I can tell, there are no mature bucks around.

Looks like a management year for my boys and I.

Here's the good news.
There is a great crop of young bucks.
Same group of bucks from last year and this year.
In 2 years, we might have something.

58 here for a high Saturday and 54 on Sunday so it may be colder a little further up north. Rain might be a problem.

I'm planning on trying to go sit Sunday morning. Low in the 40s saturday night and rain/snow mix by noon sunday. NE wind which is perfect for both of my setups. Really hoping I get a chance to see some movement in daylight hours.

Just catching up...

Jethro- thanks for the report. Will pray for the team and their families.

DZ- great buck with incredible G2s. Congrats!

To the rest of the crew, best of luck. We're getting closer. Doesn't look like I'll make it back to the states this season but I'll certainly be living vicariously through you all.

By the way, did anyone make it to the TPWD/TAMU AE Wildlife Program in Memphis?

My brother had an elk show on his place a few years ago. Pictures but they never saw it in real time. This was east of Shamrock about 6 miles or so. From what I've been told, there is a breeding population in the eastern Panhandle.

As for the place I live and hunt on, only 2.5's and 3.5's on camera so far. No elk. I still haven't deer hunted, yet, but this colder weather has me considering. For now, still working on the dove population at the nearby feed lot. Lots of birds though I'm not sure if they're still around after the last few days.

Based on photos, we have more bucks than does. Not sure if this is a good thing. I expect to see lots of broken racks in the next month or two.

I want a big fat cow. Do you know anyone that would charge a reasonable price to shoot one? I called that guy in McLean but he never called me back.

Clark, for sure there is a breeding population of elk. You know where I call coyotes out by you. Well, over east of there roughly 5 miles, there is a herd. I have seen some really nice bulls killed out of that one.

When I left the shop at lunch today I saw a white pickup, pulling a trailer with a green SxS on it. The was a pretty nice deer head/cape in the back of the SxS. They were on 83, headed south towards Childress. Had to be a bowhunter. Anybody on this thread gonna fess up to that being them?

Also, anyone coming through Wellington on 83 this weekend, be advised. Epic Nomad RV T.V. is having a thing here for the premier of their new movie. It runs Thursday-Monday. There are supposed to be around 400 RV's in town for it this weekend. They are already piling in, rodeo grounds is filling up fast. Probably going to be spill-over in Childress and Shamrock. Be prepared for eating places (and everything else) to be all jammed up.

We are back. Time to change our luck. Last night was a beating. Wind changed to SW which puts m back where the really big boy has been. Lots of moon last night and tons of browse worry me a little. I’m in the blind with my son and that is better than lots of other options. Time for great things to happen. Cue the deer.

First kill of the season and it was a big old dominant sow. She ran all the others off the feeder including a medium size boar. She was chasing the others so much I had a hard time getting a shot on her. After about 25 yards the blood trail was massive, even I could follow it and I am red/green color blind! She went about 80 to 90 yards total. One of the few quartering away shots I have taken over the last few years. I like broadside and pass throughs, but this was the opportunity so I took it. One of the best if not the best blood trails I have ever had on a critter!


595 grain Black Eagle Carnivore at 595 grains and 19% FOC did a number on her! Along with a 125 grain Ramcat. Big hole on the entry!

My son and I are back in the blind. We saw way more deer driving around pulling cards and doing chores than we have from the blind. All of them were eating the small growth that has sprouted since the rains. A good freeze and that will be over.

We are back in Lubbock. We did see a very nice 3 year old 9 point with heavy pal action on both sides. He had enough mass I second guessed his age a couple of times. He gave me lots of time to look him over and I’m almost certain he is 3. If so, he has big upsides for next year and beyond. It was the toughest hunting I have ever seen on this ranch. Warm temps, full moon and new growth fought against us. I know the deer are still here. I see their tracks in the mud. Plenty of size to the tracks means big deer are around. Come on cold and rut.

Had a good weekend east of dickens, put in a couple hunts. Saturday morning saw 7-8 different bucks mostly young promising deer. Had what looked to be a 4-5 yr old 8 I passed on which I’ll probably regret. Also saw a very big deer but never got a good look at him till he stopped on a near by hill side at about 400 yards. Hard to tell what he was but he was big and mature. Here a couple of pics including one of a young 10

Report:
Took my middle boy up for the Youth weekend.
Weather was perfect.
We've gotten some rain.
Once again, they emptied the 1500lb feeder in less than 3 weeks.
Movement was good.

Bucks still in bachelor groups.
Doe wanted no part of coming in with bucks dominating the feeder, they were immediately harassed.
It won't be long.

Based on lack of older bucks, we're in management mode this year.

Seems like the bucks are starting to split up. Starting some scrape activity near my blind this week. Wish some bigger deer would come around or some does. Freezer is getting empty.

Congrats to your son Clark, that's a horse of a doe. Looks like a perfect weekend. What caliber is the Ruger?

Headed up to Quanah this evening. Last weekend those bucks hadn’t split up. Weren’t interested in those does either. Very little sign and only a few bucks on camera. Need that first freeze. Seems like it won’t be this weekend.
