Question: At what point during your hunt will you shoot a hog if it comes out? Do you think it affects the deer coming to your spot if you shot a hog there the day before or even the morning of an afternoon hunt? Just curious about the different theories out there.

Has anyone seen any acorns in government land? The hill country is saturated with them but I haven't seen hardly any in Somerville. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I know there's a lot of black pecans on the ground already.

I understand that but I'm not seeing them this year. Have you been out there scouting? Are you seeing any? More or less than years past? Just a simple question.

I went to each of the three main group of oak trees that I hunt and on one branch out of probably twenty trees I could see small acorns. Usually these trees are loaded.

This was a few weeks ago in the hill country. They look like grapes. I haven't seen anything close to this in PHL.

I did a little dove hunting(saw none) and scouting out there today. I may be on one of your game cameras since I walked right past it, so if you see a guy on there that can drop the panties thatís me lol. Kept walking even deeper and found a hang-on stand then walked deeper and found an old ladder stand or platform of some sort, didnít get close enough to tell. Donít worry, I wonít go back that deep in that area again. Checked out a few other spots, super thick but Iím seeing more boot marks in the dirt, so I need to decide on a spot soon! I also saw several trees with good acorns coming on, not every tree though, so that may be the determining factor. I need to start wearing my full leg length snake proof gators. Iíve almost stepped on way too many of those bad snakes out there, too thick to see them. Good luck scouting everyone, I got selected for Aransas NWR first weekend of season so Iíll be there then I canít hunt second weekend, may make it out during opening week but otherwise Iíll be there weekend 3 of season....hopefully it cools some down by then too!

I was out and about today. Saw a few trucks this time. Got a shooter buck on one camera and a new non shooter on another. Got my tree stand up in the tree but I still need to work on it. It is dry dry dry! We saw a few ribbon snakes as we call them but nothing harmful. No animals in site today. Same scenario with the acorns, it's hit or miss. The pecans are everywhere though. Like walking on gravel. Ragweed is taller than 6'. After the flood last year I hate to say it but that place needs rain bad. I'll be back next weekend.

How worried are yall about the tree stand rules? Is it really feasible for a hunter to occupy their stand once every three days?

Hes not going to walk around looking for them. Other hunters are the ones who report them with the coordinates. He will then leave a tag.. if the tag is still there after 72hrs and you have not communicated with the GW. He will then remove it

It is...for some.

Some need to think of it as a lot of us do. We canít afford 3-4K a yr for a lease. If I have a stand out there...let me be. Do these same people call GW when they find a long forgotten jugline or trotline on lake/river?
Doubtful...

I found an old tree stand and instead of calling the GW I put a camera nearby. Didn't see anyone using it for two seasons and have some deer/hog traffic. To me that's a win win instead of having a GW take it down.

I had a gentleman walk by one of my cameras this past Saturday and immediately I thought there goes my camera. (I forgot my lock.) Well my camera is still there and working fine. Not sure if he saw it or not but I just wanted to apologize for doubting the gentleman. Thank you for being a respectful hunter. After my buddy's tree stand was stolen two days after putting it out last season, you just can't help but think the worst. So if that was you, I just wanted to say thank you.

**** man, that sucks! Iím sorry to hear that. I always fear losing stuff because my camo pants have holes in them! Iíll keep an eye out. I have a cheap metal detector from academy you can borrow if you want .....if there happens to be something metal in your wallet? My friend did the same thing on a private land piece, borrowed it, and found his wallet.

Wow! OK. Not like I'm just going to pack up and run over there like a hot fishing spot. You guys are ridiculous sometimes. I didn't recognize the fence behind him, that's the only reason I asked. I'm sure most of you recognize the area and already know the secret unit he was at.

I put in a lot of time and effort to scout my area that I want to hunt. Maybe it's my pride but I will hunt my area relentlessly just to prove that what I thought was right. Lol.

As do most of us having to move stands due to people being stupid and setting up in the same areas being hunted instead of doing homework has paid off once again paid off...
