Default Plains, Tx mule deer?

Ive gained access to 640 acres 9.5 miles northwest of Plains, Tx in Yoakum county. I know there are some mule deer in that area but Ive never been there. The place looks to be right in the middle of a bunch of crop fields. This property is mostly all crop fields as well with not much brush. Grass is in the middle of all the irrigation circles. Anyone have any insight about this area and if it would be worth my time to hunt? Thanks

I used to work in yoakum co and saw some of the best over all nuke deer than anywhere else I’ve been. The ranch I had my leases in was about 50/50 crop land brush. During December and early January I generally saw at least 1 170 plus deer a day and saw several well over 200.

X2.

My son drew a hunt there that we went on last month and he killed a pretty decent buck. We saw a lot of mule deer. One really nice buck. A few young up and comers.

Mule deer love the peanuts and can get very large eating them.
