I killed my newton buck on the 15th last year. We had almost every buck on the place in daylight at feeders from about the 8th to the 15th. Hunt that week if you can.

Picture is hard to see but this is the biggest deer I've killed in the national forest.. 21 years ago on Thanksgiving day chasing a doe. Shot him at 5 yards.

Made my first sit of the year yesterday evening, this fella joined me @ 6:00 for a solid 15 minutes. He is a great looking 3yr old and an absolute corn hog. I bet he ate 5lbs while he was in front of me. If my little girl (7) decides she wants to hunt him with the crossbow then his days are numbered otherwise he will live at least 1 more year. I haven't pulled my card in over a week at this spot but as of last week the bigger bucks had not shown up, I'm going to setup a new spot after tomorrow's morning hunt to see if my suspicions are right....the crops have changed surrounding this block of woods from last year to now and k believe the deer have adjusted their patterns accordingly. We will find out soon enough!

I hunted yesterday evening. Passed a good,I believe, 4 year old 8 point that I have scoring 132-134". It was very tempting, and has very similar characteristics from an 8 point I shot 6 years ago that scored 148". One brow about 7 inches and one about 4.5 inches. The buck I killed 6 years ago had one that was 10 and one that was 6. Have too many mature deer to be taking a deer that could really blow up with a couple more years.

Hunted this morning, didn't expect much with the wind gusting how it was. About 8:20 had a yearling doe come in followed my a solid 5 year old ten point. I had him scored 136-140". He had been running with the deer I've been trying to kill this year so I passed on him and waited. He meandered around in front of me for about 15 minutes before he chased a doe off. I did notice that his right eye is freshly gouged out. May end up regretting passing on him but I'm on a mission for one particular deer currently so that's what I, going to stick to for now.

My daughter and I sat yesterday evening to try to get her a shot at her first deer, shortly after we got in the stand the perfect candidate stepped out, a little 3pt. She took her time but somehow managed to barely clip his backstrap..... lesson learned, we will be better prepared next time. I tried to take her up this morning with no luck so I went and sat solo hoping to see a big 10pt I have been watching on camera. The 8 point that I wanted my little girl to shoot showed up early, ate and eased off. 20 minutes later a doe that has been giving me hell decided she wanted to come eat. After a 15 minute production of her doing everything but actually blowing she made the mistake of giving me a chance to draw and the rest is history. #1 for the season is now in the cooler! Hopefully I can get my little one on the 8pt this evening before the rut fires up and he changes his pattern.

Borrowed a friends crossbow and went out to a spot in the Angelina NF last Friday morning. Had a dang good buck try to pull the mohican sneakin on me about 10am but he couldn't resist the sound of a couple grunts on the call. Had him dead to rights at what I guesstimated 25 yards....he was about 30. Shot under him and he tore out like somebody lit a fire under his arse. Gonna slip back out there this weekend and see if he'll give me another opportunity.

Swoop looking good. I think I’m going to start
Opening weekend of gun season in Newton co. I have 4 bucks on my list I wouldn’t mind seeing. No bow stands set up still so I’ll be toting the bang stick.

Finally uploaded the camera pics of this deer. If you notice in the last pic his messed up eye. Hope he makes it another year.

Anyone seeing mature bucks tending does?

Also, random question. The raccoons around my place quit eating corn at feeders and just took the feeders home. I still have one feeder out but as of last weekend my bucks had just started checking it out. That is on the NE side of my property. About 800 yards away where I had another feeder, now has a good scrape in an oak flat. Game cameras left with the raccoons as well. Would I be better off hunting the feeder that has my most recent buck activity (that I know of)? Or would I be better off hunting over the scrape Saturday morning after the rain?

I'd hunt the scrape away from a feeder but that's just what I like to do . I've put cameras 100 yards away from my feeders and caught bucks circling the feeder .. bucks that were never on the feeder camera..

I had 11 coons on my camera lastnight. They empty 100 lbs of corn in 4 days.. I'm off for a week and have 10 coon traps it's about to be war..

I was thinking the scrape is the place to be. Just wanted to see people’s opinions. I think I need traps for my coons too.
