I had about a quarter inch in town yesterday. It was the wettest quarter inch rain that I ever saw, it is extremely wet out there.
Adios,

We are off 190 near Clear Creek Lake and have pigs. Not overran but enough we should be able to shoot a few.

Your not kidding, I went down Wednesday because they dropped the chance of rain. Callan lane was absolute soup and had one spot where the water was about a foot deep. Should have taken the truck instead of the Subaru but most places have a bottom you can dig down to.


Starting to see some activity and finally saw some deer that weren't still wearing diapers. I had a nice 10 point come in acting aggressive and chasing does but we're not quite there yet. Forecast is calling for another front and hopefully it will bump the activity some more.

I'll be going up Callan Lane late tonight.
Usually do about 40ish mph. I don't think that will happen tonight.
Pics of your buck?
Thanks, can use the luck.

Used to date a crazy girl that lived in Splendora. A Brandy something. Probably late 40s now? LMAO

Saw a nice 10pt Thursday evening. I was in a box (rainy) with a rifle (I bow hunt) and could not make myself shoot it with the 7mag. It was beating the bushes and pawing the ground so I assumed it would be back the next day.
Long story short, never assume. Heard shots over the fence (next ranch over) the next morning, and it never showed up the next 3 days on our 1200 acre lease.
Very green, and looked like spring. Deer would come nibble the corn and then start walking off grazing on the green grass.

Gary, sorry we missed you on Thursday.
My brother and I were going to take you out to lunch. Lazy Ladle was as great as ever!

Capp35, so sorry I had to make a mad dash to Colorado City. I did not get back into town until nearly 5:00 PM. Hope that you had a great hunt. Really cooling off here today, supposed to be in the 20's tomorrow morning and Wednesday morning. When are you planning to return?
Adios,
Gary

Seen two good bucks (110-120) have a fight of fights. One came out busted up. While they were fighting 4 other bucks came in checking it out. Watched a couple younger ones chase some does. Finally started seeing axis again which is great. Look forward to next trip.

Ouch, luckily I'm east of Town.

I hope my trailer doesn't have any busted water pipe surprises waiting on me when I get back up there tomorrow night.

..........

(As posted in another thread)

I was lucky enough to take out a songdog last week and turned it in to Kothmanns for the bounty.



I was wondering if anyone knew the going rate for foxes and bobcats?

Iíve taken pictures of both from the stand not realizing the local ranchers donít want them around.
Iíd turn one in for corn money and to help the ranchers out of course .

The bucks have separated, and the does are teasing them. Lots of activity all day long. Mostly younger bucks, next ten days to two weeks ought to be killer.

Are you asking about the dollar amount per critter or what the bounty program is?

The bounty per animal I do not know.
I know the coyote is $75 and bobcat is $75 according to DT50.

I know I saw hogs on the form, but failed to see what their payout is.

Will be just West of Menard this Thursday through Sunday.

Hoping the animals are hungry after the rut - I'm basically on doe and cull buck patrol, so should be fun regardless. Looking forward to a campfire and no humans more than anything.

Same location and time for me as well. As of today the covert cameras are not showing much at the feeders still which is odd. But im sure the cows and pigs being there has a lot to do with that. Have seen quite a few broken up bucks last few days.

A buddy and I get invited to hunt in Menard every year for does, cull bucks and pigs. We were there a couple weeks ago and saw a ton of deer. I shot this big 4 point.

I was there for 4 or 5 days this past week and the feeder activity for mine was next to nothing. I did have a mature 8 come in on Monday night but I still think he can be a better deer next year (hopefully with some more rain during the growing season). Several of our rifle hunters were seeing good numbers but not a lot of bucks that were older. Hoping by Christmas we can get some good cold weather and it will change things for the better.

Hunted Thursday - Sunday morning. Very slow overall with zero deer shot between 7 of us. Saw a bunch of youngsters but only 1 shooter buck and the guy looking for a big buck wasnít at the right stand. He never showed back up. I shot a 256-lb hog. Weather was terrible,but still fun being out there.
