I videoed an old broke 6 point yesterday afternoon picking up acorns. He looked like a bull coming through the woods.

That's the problem with corn piles,you let them eat when they want vs timed feeders.Usually they will Bachelor back up starting around now in ETX and suck the corn at night if u let em.I like piles but they hurt sometimes.

My dad spent the last 2 1/2 days at our place. He says he saw tons of deer. Mostly does. Did manage to take 236 lbs of pork. Only 1 million left

That sow in the center is preggers for sure. You get her and you'll take out generations to come with one shot.

This is my plan...I may sit in the popup thru the storm, it all depends on how bad it's coming down when I wake up also depends if I can get to the lease in time to move the popup to a new section on the edge of the high water mark

The pig that got my attention is the younger brown one facing away. For that young of a pig to be that filled out it has been eating very well.

I'm heading out Saturday morning to check a well travelled trail I found a few weeks ago and hunted two afternoons with no luck. I'm hoping it will be better in the morning as a travel route, it's going to be cold but it could be a good morning. Just gotta get there early.

Hardin/Tyler County:

Most water I've seen on our place since Harvey. It dumped pretty good on Friday/Saturday. Checked the cams and out of 5 different cameras in 5 different locations, I only had 2 daytime feedings in the past week.

Saw some small bucks start trickling out at night though. We really need to eliminate about 4-5 spikes that are 2.5-4.5 yo.

Saw a nice 3 year old 9 this morning. He was all over the place during bow season so I just knew he would get get killed early. Surprised me when he turned back up on camera around Thanksgiving. Hope to run in with him next year.

Deer hunt turned coyote hunt real quick this afternoon, still riding till dark to see what shows up.
