Default Hunting in Coleman county near Voss

So my parents are under contract on a piece of dirt in Coleman county near Voss Tx. We will be about a mile and a half from the Colorado river and 15 miles from Kenedy park on OH Ivie. Property is already setup with blinds and feeders and has a Clearwater pond stocked with bass and catfish.

It will be a great place to enjoy the outdoors with the family and make memories. For those that hunt this area what can we expect? Typical whitetail I am expecting to top out in the 130ís. How about hogs turkey or any exotics?

Lucky you congratulations. Some hogs tons of turkey. Can grow some 150” deer in that area with the right management. Don’t think there is very many exotics roaming around but it is a possibility with a few high fence exotic ranches around and have seen some low fence blackbuck in that area . Not to mention close to some great eats at Big o’s and at Elm creek village

Ivie is the fullest it has been since 1999. Get ready for a giant bass explosion in the next 2 years.

Congrats.


My family has a lease not to far from yíall in Valera. Hunting is hit or miss, the hogs are thick right now. In my opinion Coleman County has close to the best dove hunting in the state. Sunflowers are looking awesome right now so it should be a good September. Iíve always heard the closer to the river the bigger deer youíll have in Coleman. Who knows.


Hit me up one weekend and Iíll buy lunch at Big Oís in Valera.

Like others have said, lots of deer, on that side of the lake and near the river exotics are possible but not abundant. Should be target rich tho

Youíre spot on. My buddies hunted between there and Ballinger and it was an awesome place. Ton of deer, with the biggest being mid 130ís. There were a few exotics on their place, but not enough to hunt. I miss them having that place. Keep us updated on the place!

I hunted about three miles from Voss for 6-7 years and I have friends that stayed on that 640 acre lease for 20 years. There were a lot of 110-120 B&C bucks killed and I think one that may have scored close to 150. Deer population was good, lots of pigs, turkeys, & rattlesnakes, some quail. One year a few Axis wandered through. I think someone hunts every available acre in that country, pressure is high.

In around the 2003-2006 time frame we had a lease on 503 almost directly across the highway from Panther Creek Elementary School (this would be a few miles N/NE of you) and we saw good deer. I had a legitimate 160 nontypical that I missed with my bow. I had video of him, but I've lost it somewhere.

Your location description sounds like you were giving directions to my little 40 acre GAP Ranch. Good to know I'll have a new TBH neighbor. Headed there this evening to take in the Coleman County Rodeo.

This is the one I killed there opening day of rifle season last year.
