Default 2019-2020 Hill Country Hunting Thread

Now that the season has ended and turkey hunting is in full swing I figured itíd be a good time to start a new thread. Everyone in the Hill Country area please post updates and pictures from your hunting area, recaps from last season, rain reports, and anything else that pertains to hunting the hill country.

Our property is close to the Mason/Gillespie County line and is very very green right now. We have had less than 1.5Ē for the year, but we had an extremely wet fall like everyone else. If we donít get good rain soon though Iím afraid weíll start browning back up. The 2018 season was tough hunting conditions due to the drought and then the non-stop rain. We are geared up for a great antler year if we can just keep getting some moisture.

We are about 15 miles SW of San Saba near the Sloan community. Green green right now. Animals aren't hitting feeders much which is good. Plenty of natural forage. Had about a 1/3rdof an inch of rain this past weekend. Turkeys are almost nonexistent right now. Couple of hens on camera and only heard 1 gobble over several days out there.

Just got off a place in San Saba and on a couple thousand acres with very little hunting pressure in Doss. I’ve seen some GREAT deer out there but haven’t had the chance to hunt it until this year. I’m excited to say the least.

A couple thousand acres in Doss? Thatís pretty rare! Glad you found a great place. We are just east of Doss in the Loyal Valley area. There are some great deer in pockets, especially shows when the deer get age.

I was lucky enough to shoot largest buck last year at 151". The deer just started to hit the protein feeders hard around Thursday but the little rain we got over the weekend should help quite a bit.

Itís actually my girlfriends land. Theyíve been telling me to hunt it for years, but I already had too many irons in the fire at the time so I just hunted with her 2-3 times a year. With me getting off of that place in SS, I have put all my focus in Doss. Hoping for a stellar year!

We're in Mason county. South of the town of Mason. We were down there opening weekend of turkey season and it was still pretty green. Hopefully the rain will continue and things will stay that way. Saw lots of deer. Hopefully it'll be a good year!!!

We completed a prescribed burn this February(or early March, I canít remember) and it is greening up nicely from it. The army worms hammered our native grasses in this pasture last Fall and that hurt our fuel for the fire. Oh well, any prescribed fire is a good one in my book!

Some pictures showing regrowth from the burn.

I am on the other side of y'all. The Kerr/Gillespie line. It is greening up and I have a few good Axis coming in 2x a day. My place is low fence. Next week looks like a good week for me to go sit a bit and choot'em!

In, for another year of Hill Country hunting. We are just North of London in Menard County. We were up on opening weekend of Turkey and the wife got this one before the front hit Saturday morning. I spent the rest of the weekend trying to get myself a bird but couldn't get it done with the wind blowing like that. Hopefully I will have better conditions when I make it back up to try again.

Man, we are right there with you on the rain,Puncher. Pinch over an inch thus far, but hoping this weekend starts a trend.

Still have a little bit of residual left over from fall and winter rains. Our creeks are running just enough to show that somebody is getting rain, just not us!

If we recover from the army worms we will have done something. We didn't burn, but we have been digging in on NRCS projects to reclaim some areas back from the cactus and white brush.

Tordon. The stuff we sprayed a couple of years ago looks fantastic now. I stupidly did not take any 'before' pics, but it kicked the cactus in the head for sure.

We had decided to do package hunts this year. I have a guided private land archer elk hunt booked for Colorado in September. Was planning a couple exotic hunts as well. But then I got a call last week on a place I'd been hoping to lease for the last couple of years. A few weeks ago, it looked like the current group that's had it leased for a few years was gonna stay. But then they decided to leave. Landowner called me. Long story short, we're skipping the exotic hunts. I'm keeping the elk hunt. And we'll be hunting axis on the new lease near Roosevelt soon. Great place.

That's good to hear that you got some rain. We'll be heading to Mason tomorrow and will stay the weekend. Looking forward to it still being green. Hope it stays that way for awhile.

Hopefully the turkey cooperate this weekend. I'm pretty sure I'll get a hog but you never know.

Green, green, green in Pipe Creek. Haven't gotten any pictures of bucks with any new growth in the last few weeks that I've had my camera up, but did get a red stag or two coming through with some good fronts already starting!

I got a nice gobbler yesterday evening. We could still use some more rain but at least everything is still green. Here is a pic of my deer from last year named Bob I recently got back from the taxi.

Been raining in Pipe Creek pretty much all day after 7:30 this morning. Went turkey hunting knowing I didn't have much time before the storm rolled in, but was hopeful. Had two birds working to me when the bottom fell out. Hopefully they stay in the area tonight and I can try them again in the morning.

My goodness this thread has been dead. I canít say much, I havenít been to the ranch in a month or two now. Iíll be going next weekend to clean up some things and top off feeders and check cameras.
Thankfully my parents have been out at the ranch and have taken some pictures this week I can share. We have been missed on all the big rain this year, and are now only at 6Ē for the year. Thankfully the rain has been consistent even though it hasnít been much.

My pictures keep showing up upside down. Iíll see if I can figure it out later

We were out at our lease last weekend. Like mentioned in the post above me the bigger rains have been avoiding our lease as well but we've got just enough rain to keep everything green and growing.

Saw a few bucks last weekend. Of course it's way early to tell how they are gonna finish out but a couple of bucks are just a little further along than the rest. Hope it stays green and we get plenty of rain to help them out.

All in all not a bad spring. We (my son and myself) managed to kill a few pigs and a couple of turkeys.

Been up at our place pretty well every week for the last 2 months. Country is beautiful. I believe this is the best we have seen it since we got it 3 years ago. Animals are fat & happy & does look like they will explode at anytime. I'm sure some have dropped already,but haven't seen a fawn yet. The deer have started hitting the protein & corn more lately.I did put medicated protein feed out this week. I hope we keep getting these rains every week or 2. Last year it was bad by now.

We were at the lease this weekend and had the same thing...thigh high grass and full tanks. It was nice to see but made shed hunting hard.

Ran up there this weekend before it gets too hot. Saturday was nice and over cast, but Sunday was in the 90s. Green as it has been in a while, lots of wildflowers, saw some bucks in velvet, and a couple quail paired up.

I’m headed to the ranch Saturday afternoon. It’s been over two months since I’ve been out there which is a crazy long time for me. The plan is to top off feeders, check cameras, and cut some brush hopefully. Hopefully I’ll have some pictures to share when I get back.

I was able to go to the ranch this weekend for a few days. Saw lots of deer, some pigs, and a few turkey and quail. Most bucks are not quite to their G2ís yet, and all the deer looked really fat. The draws have quit running and if we donít get a rain pretty quick everything will go dormant. Sure hope we can start getting some good moisture.

Bottom picture is from late June last year. Top picture is from yesterday. I believe he is the same deer which I will be after this year.
