I see cameras in some odd places out here, like directly on the main trail. Today I noticed a cellular camera take a pic as I was walking in. Not sure if someone is planning on hunting the main trail or if it’s keeping tabs on hunting pressure. Either way you will have a pic of me today at 6am.

Nothing on my camera but I'm also not on a main trail either. If I see you on one of my cameras then you are probably lost. Lol.

I have doe on camera not far from entrance but no bucks. Decided to go way deep in the woods Saturday and had the same results, all doe. Had a doe at ten yards, went to draw back and a twig from a dead branch I brushed in with got hung up in my cam. No doe for me.

Bummer, at least youíre seeing deer. I must be in a bad spot. Been good to me in years past, but no water around seems to be a problem. Have a decent buck on cam, but still only after dark. Finally saw a doe last night, but was out of range.

Thanks hog wild that’s a lot later than I guessed and makes sense why I had a big buck walk under me on my first hunt out there last year on dec 9 and saw a lot of bucks moving. So far I’ve only seen does yearlings this year.

That's where I've hunted all season pretty much and three or four trucks not counting mine is par for the course. Usually another one or two down by the creeks too.

With the official "archery season" winding down, and the last few days to take a doe are here, I now have a question. When the special doe season opens up for rifle hunters, can we archery people take a doe as well?

Thank you. My next question seems to get mixed answers. Is the public land unit divided by the counties or does one set of rules govern the whole unit? If I shoot a 13"+ buck on the Lee County side can I shoot a 13"+ buck on the Burleson County side as well?

Iíd be happy just to see a 13Ē plus wide buck out there right now while hunting lol. Rule book states you can only shoot one 13Ē plus inside spread buck in unit 711. If you actually end up shooting one, buy some beer, celebrate your success, then maybe try to thin out the pig population some the rest of season.

I didnít see nothing this weekend. Maybe the hunter pressure is getting to them. I did see a hawk trying to catch a squirrel lol.

Well if you were traveling the dry creek beds like I have been recently, those days could be over. Woke up to pictures of water in the creeks this morning. I hope their patterns don't change too much.

Not sure if it's raining hard at the public land units but if it's raining like where I am at you can kiss those acorns goodbye. One of my cameras might be a goner too.

Went out early this morning and got my stand setup in a new spot. Hunted for a little bit before heading to work. Saw 2 does. Really windy but it felt good to be hunting in that cold weather. Should be a good weekend hopefully. Creeks are up a little bit but nothing bad at all where I was at.

I'm obviously not an expert but there's been a lot of late fawns this year. I'm still seeing some with spots. She could possibly be still nursing or just weened off her fawn. Hard to tell with just a still shot.

Gorgeous morning hunt. First full morning to be able to hunt the new spot I found. Saw two 8pts together, probably 11 and 10 inch inside spread. One of them made a rub 10 yards from me which was cool to watch. Saw a little 4pt chasing a doe. Saw a few more does. Then later, out of nowhere like a ghost, saw a nice 8pt. Immediately, I knew he was outside the ears. He was about 40 yards away but tucked behind some trees. I grabbed my bow and was able to slowly stand up. I was waiting for at least 10 minutes for him to make his move, but he just stood there. The wind was in my favor. Then all of a sudden he just started running towards me but also behind me. I picked an open spot quickly and drew back, I made a grunt sound and released my arrow as soon as he stopped 15 yards behind me....all of this within a few seconds. He dropped immediately. I realized I shot him high and probably hit his spine, he was still alive and trying to get up and crawl away so I put another arrow in his lungs. Ended up with a nice 8pt buck with exactly a 15Ē inside spread. Iíll post pics soon.

Immediately, I knew he was outside the ears. He was about 40 yards away but tucked behind some trees. I grabbed my bow and was able to slowly stand up. I was waiting for at least 10 minutes for him to make his move, but he just stood there. The wind was in my favor. Then all of a sudden he just started running towards me but also behind me. I picked an open spot quickly and drew back, I made a grunt sound and released my arrow as soon as he stopped 15 yards behind me....all of this within a few seconds. He dropped immediately. I realized I shot him high and probably hit his spine, he was still alive and trying to get up and crawl away so I put another arrow in his lungs. Ended up with a nice 8pt buck with exactly a 15Ē inside spread. Iíll post pics soon.
Heck yeah man that's good to hear. Congrats.
