There have been some really nice bucks taken the last few weeks. It's been a good year and best news is my target buck is still alive and running around, although I am done for the season I am hoping he makes it through to next year and I can get another crack at him

Anybody here hunt Van Zandt county? Or have any issues with guys running dogs? My grandparents have a little farm out there with some cattle. I put up two feeders and lock on stands for bow hunting. Have seen some deer but several times guys running hog dogs on my cams. Only one buck on camera but a guy about 4 miles down the road killed a Boone & Crockett buck last year. Its about 150-160 acres

The buffalo method plot is looking awesome and taking some pressure! All plots have several active scrapes this week. I made 3 scrapes on 3 properties (1 per property) and all were hit and are being used frequently. I have cameras on then set to video, look forward to learning from them

My turnips in every plot on every property SUCK this year? Donít know if due to planting later, or what the deal is. I planted most mixed in and they suck and tried one plot with them isolated (testing a YouTube claim, by ďexpertĒ that Iíve proven wrong/different result several times).. but just had to know... and they didnít grow at all?

Thinking a timing issue, so wonít make it the gospel yet



Acorns are boot top deep, but deer are still eating plots, protein and corn on cameraís. Iíd chose cover if I were still in the game. Everyone I know looking at a barrel is bored out of their mind, not even hogs

Still on acorns. Hoping this rain and cold weather sour what's on the ground.

My target deer is back. Hitting corn every night but having trouble patterning where heís coming or going. Either heís down in weight from the rut or heís younger than I thought. When I saw him on the hoof he seemed like a decent sized deer but in this pic he looks small/young.

Yeah he's most definitely lost weight so his body size is likely a poor indicator of age right now. But look at his face. That's a mature deer. If you see him, bust him.

Now that I'm tagged out at the lease and prospects for a mature buck on our farm are nill I'm focusing on trying to ascertain where my number one hit-lister is spending his time when he's not teasing me on camera around my stand.

With all the hot deals on game cams the last couple of years I've got plenty to try and figure this out. Went for a walkabout today and found some scrapes in an area I wasn't sure I'd be able to access, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that wasn't the case.

Hopefully I can find him and get a better bead on him before he sheds his antlers (and before it gets to hot to be walking around in the pines).

Congratulations Johnny. Love the chocolate and character. Two of my favorite traits in whitetail antlers.

Lot of vertical mass there you donít get credit for. Looks like an upper 40s animal. Way to get it done!

I’ve seen deer everywhere on feed route this morning

Was closing a gate after feeding heifers and caught something in a finger of woods. Just counted so I knew it wasn’t cows. First was a doe flying through. Then a broke up young buck and another smaller buck. Both from the “cottonmouth” as I was 1/4 mile north of it

The two bucks got to the middle of open field and started an all out brawl... not sparring. A brawl! They fought until I couldn’t watch anymore and where still fighting when I left. Wasn’t 60” of horn combined in the fight and I could hear it at 150 yards... and I can’t hear. Lol

Neat to watch anyway

In Houston County and I am sitting in my tree stand now and since Monday afternoon. Been really slow at the feeder, as in not seen anything at all this week. Not even hogs which is really odd. I especially would have thought this morning would have been the best chance for activity. There must be a better food source near by other than corn and rice bran. Unfortunately I don't have time to do another setup. Probably leaving tomorrow morning.

I did see a coyote this morning right at the crack of dawn and couldn't just let it leave my line of sight without taking a shot. I believe its down and will try to collect it when I take a snack break. Of course, that may have hindered me seeing some activity this morning. lol Oh well, maybe the evening sit will be better.

There are still an unbelievable amount of pinoak acorns in Houston co. Never seen it like this this late. Deer are starting back on My hand corn a little but everyone I know has corn piled up under feeders.

Thanks gents. That deer has stayed pretty close to home all year. For some reason my son passed him a few weeks ago. Hes lost a lot of weight since we first started watching him. Rut smooth wore him out

I'd like to think he's another product of taking care of our little 200 acre no fence place.

I’d say y’all are doing it right.


I shot a hog this evening. There was blood and lung tissue all over the shot sight but it ran in to some thick mess and a crappy flashlight hindered my efforts to find the track till it was nearly dark. I’ll go and look for it in the morning. It was super skittish but if I had been thinking more clearly I’da just gut shot it.

What are you guys using to pull these deer in and hold them? Plain ol corn or something else? I know everyone's situation is different and deer are different by location but please share what works for you. Thanks.

Most of us are creating safe zones or sanctuaries and providing good plots plus corn. Without the sanctuary the corn won't hold them.

I could be wrong by saying I try to take care of our deer. But the collected antlers say otherwise. We normally shoot 2 trophy bucks a year on 200 acres (4 hunters). Over the last several years we've managed to take bucks that we have watched grow. Ive been able to track deer up to 5 years and most of those are 2 before I start paying attention to them. 3 of the last 4 deer Ive shot Id passed multiple times

That said we have 2 spring fed live creeks, 3 ponds, 4 food plots, tons of oaks, thickets to bed and now pressure on 2 sides only. Once season starts we only fill feeders on sunday afternoons and don't ride thru the middle of the property unless its to go get a deer. Most of our sets can be accessed from the perimeter anyway. I try and keep the woods quiet at possible. Off season Ive got 2 stations I feed protein that are deep into the property

its a crap shoot bud. I have 50 acres in hunt county and my neighbor to the south has 75, 2 days ago he killed a nice 10 that he said he watched cross the fence from my place onto his, which is fine. I never had the deer on camera and my camera is literally 100y from where he was shot.

its hard to believe but he and I have bucks on camera every year that the other guy never sees. some thing happens on my 90 acre place 30mins away, all of my neighbors have pics of bucks that I never see and vice versa.


I killed 3 big deer on that 90 acre place over 4 years with hundreds of pics of shooters and now am about 2 weeks away from going 2 years with less than 10 pics of a shooter and no sightings at all while my neigbors are seeing them and killing them. I dug the climber out this weekend and will spend the next 2 weeks on the 90 acres finding them.

it will drive you crazy

I attract with zero pressure and intrusion. I only go in to plant and if checking cameras I use same cautions as if hunting. Once they know they are being hunted.... they gone

My place is small, 40 acres. Cannot plant plots but run 2 corn feeders year round. Lots of hunting pressure around. My hardwood bottom was destroyed 3 years ago by a tornado. Hardwood bottom probably hundreds of years old looked like a clear cut. Now the briars and crap so thick I can't even walk around in there anymore. I wanted to set a ladder stand on the creek but can't even walk round in there anymore. I have a popup on a pipeline with 1 feeder to my west and 1 to my east. I have a ladder stand on my fencerow across the creek bordering paper company land that is leased. Everything else is pine thickets. i mow my fencerows and other trails I keep clean for getting around.
