I'm giving it a couple weeks as well. Mid-late December is when I'll go give it another shot. Was hoping more and more people will start seeing them hitting the corn again.

Since I'd been hunting at our farm I just checked my cameras at the lease for the first time in almost a month. Lets just say after I punched my buck tag in AnCo opening weekend my butt should've been back in Trinity during the middle of the month.

This one could haunt me for a while.

If I get 'em I'll post it. I don't want to jinx it right now though.

If I don't get him I may just post it after the season anyway.

What sucks the worst is that of all the pictures I have he showed up in broad daylight on my BIRTHDAY. I mean what kind of insulting crap is that? LOL

I'd say thats a slap in the face and punishment should be forced! My luck with me taking a few weeks of not putting pressure in my neck of the woods is when the big boys decide to come out in daylight and eat the corn thats been piling up for weeks..

I have to admit this is the worst year I've had for food plots. Between the army worms and the floods, I've planted 2 times. They really look like crap but the fertilizer should give them a kick in the butt.

Same with us. We have become pretty obsessed with our food plots but we moved two leases this year and have been way behind. Our plots at home and everywhere were subpar. Like you mentioned the army worms and rain has been bad too. Whatís even worse is this is the type of year a late season food plot is killer. No food & cold


Our spring/summer plots have had the most positive effect on our deer herds. Have you ever planted okra?? Or anyone?? We will most likely go with iron clay cow peas, black oil sunflowers, sun hemp and okra this year. We grow milo easily but deer donít eat it as much as the others.

Sorry for the spring talk already. Iím not used to only having one tag left, I usually hone in on one deer and eat tag soup. Already thinking about burning, liming and planting for next year.

Glad Im not the only one with food plot issues. Ours suck! Never thought Id gripe about too much water on a fall plot. 10" of rain 24 hours after we planted did zero favors

I've tried a lot of spring plots, but with the lack of rain they really never done that good. The milo seems to head too late in the summer . I typically mow my plots down from summer around the middle of July and spray the 1st of August. I've heard okra does very well but I don't think her sandy soil would grow and very well.

You might have a hard time keeping me out of the plot if you plant okra! But you are right it doesn't grow well in the sand.

I didn't even realize deer would eat okrey... They've never bothered my peas or okra ( or really anything in my garden behind the house... I may have to break up some ground in the back of the pasture next to the woods and make a "garden" back there this spring!!

Down south (Webb County) we've had so much rain, the Buffle grass is waist deep, and it's worse than akerns for East Texas... Deer love the stuff like it's alfalfa!! We had a frost so at least it's brown now...

Headed up to the father in laws place this weekend. He hasn't been able to hunt this season but has kept corn in his feeders and everything is ready to go and he says he's seen some good ones on camera. Hopefully get a chance to fill the freezer. Been looking forward to this all week especially after last weekend

Quite a storm came thru last night. Just what we needed, more rain. I feel like I'm back in college draggin around in rice fields with all the mud.


I elected to cheat today and came to a cozy box blind with the apr man bun. I really want to kill about 47 hogs. Son is in my tree overlooking a trail to a bedding area and my wife is dreaming of P&Y bucks in bed. Maybe she'll cook breakfast

I'm in the ol box myself. What app caliber.? And if she is anything like mine she will probably wait on cooking you breakfast because she didn't want it to get cold.
