There's 2 separate issues here:

1 - respecting people's space while hunting - I think 99% of people agree and respect others. If you see someone actively hunting in a spot (i.e. physically there), move to a different area and disturb them as little as possible. If you are mid season scouting, keep in mind that others may be hunting, and be as respectful and stealthy as possible.

2 - (the more controversial subject) - the idea of people "claiming spots" because they scouted them earlier in the year. The reality is, it's public land and we all pay for it, so no one owns any spots regardless of how much effort they put into it. I think the majority of people understand this, but there's always a few people who think they own the forest and threaten to ruin others' hunts - which is both sad and illegal. Hunter Harassment Laws exist for a reason.

Here's what i wonder - those people that "claimed" 2 or 3 spots by scouting them earlier in the year - what do they do if those 2 or 3 spots don't pan out? By their rules - they should then end their season, because the rest of the forest is off limits because they didn't scout it. But i highly doubt they do that. They then mid season scout like everyone else.

Listen most of have met or have talked on here for many years claiming spot we all know doesnt happen if a stands there no ones in it hunt it.....its there for a reason.....if your in my stand when I walk up and your a *** and wont get out I'll remove the legs and you can stay you have 72 hours to "remove" the stand but most of us hunt couple times a week so the 72 hr mark never is a concern... now you want to set up 50 yrds away on the trail I wont harrass you but will get on my phone and call 100 people and talk as loud as I feel cause ya know its public land we all pay for it.....

1. I agree 100% on what you said you should do regarding scouting and respecting hunterís space. Sadly, I have to disagree and say that there are still a lot of hunters out there each year that have no respect when I am hunting. Iím friendly and will wave, whistle, etc. and they just keep walking right into the area Iím obviously hunting, but itís public land so I pack my portable setup and move. Iíve had hunters walking with the wind, and walk towards me, Iíd like to tell them they will definitely never ďstalkĒ a deer or hog walking in the same direction as the wind. They can smell you from way out. Iíve had people walk up and talk to me and ask me if I seen anything while hunting in my stand. Iíve had people setup portable ground blinds that I can see from a 100 yards away near me. If I see it, a mature buck does too and he will stay away.

2. Iíll never claim a spot. I have a portable setup and take it out with me within 72 hours every time. Also, I have no issue with people putting up permanent stands and leaving them year round(as long as they will be hunting it the upcoming deer season), it lets me know when Iím pre-season scouting to respect that hunter and stay away from that area during the season. Trust me, itís better to have a hunter with a permanent location than a new hunter scouting and smelling up the entire woods looking for a spot. Iíll never ruin someoneís hunt unless they are in the stand I put up and then we will have major ****ing issues because that is my property and I am following the WMA rules. My hunt has been ruined many times whether intentional or not intentional by others. And I might get upset inside, but I just get out and move my stand.

3. I scout every year, from the time season ends until about one month before season begins. I donít claim any spots since itís public land, but since hunters, like myself, have put in all that time scouting during the off season(when you should scout in my opinion versus the rut/deer season when people hunt all day), then most of us will have more than 2 or 3 spots trust me. I have scouted from each entrance of that place, and I have trees/spots picked out at from each entrance(even some of the several not-known entrances). The good thing about scouting during off season, you learn where permanent stands are and you stay away. Also, if the day before opening morning comes and that awesome spot I wanted to hunt is taken by some guy in a ground blind or whatever, then I just go to the next spot I scouted and keep moving down the list. I hunted numerous previously scouted spots this year, before I killed my buck, and I never once walked in on a hunter or hunted close to anyone because I scouted pre-season and I know what ďareasĒ to avoid. Sometimes, I had my stand packed and ready to go in and saw one truck just at a gate and decided ďno I wonít mess up there hunt just in case I happen to go near them, Iíll keep moving until I see zero trucks then setup in another spot I scoutedĒ. Also, I just recently started talking on here a year or two ago when a fellow hunter recommended the website, but I will tell you the guys on here that do a lot of the conversations on here are truly great guys. Most of us pre-season have talked to one another because we trust each other and know where we typically hunt, so we respect each other. There are too many people reading this thread wanting to jump on another personís spot because they killed an animal there and thatís why some of us are very cautious about helping others.

You sound like a good respectful hunter and I wish you good luck truly. Just be cautious there are many out there that arenít. Iím at Somerville year round. Fishing Yegua and Nails creeks for whites with my little girls, kayaking the creeks with friends, boating/fishing Lake Somerville with family, and camping with the family at Nails state park, and of course scouting in the off season. Some of us take pride in this public land, and we donít like stands and trash just left out there by someone who comes for a weekend or two but too lazy to remove their stuff. Itís ALL of our public land and we need to keep it clean and enjoy the Great Outdoors and be respectful hunters to one another.

You arenít joking, Iím not the hybrid master but they are big and fun to catch on the lake! Iíll be after the whites January 11th, if not a little sooner, I just canít help walking out with a limit on my shoulder from my previously scouted ďhoney holesĒ when some people canít catch 2. People eyeballing your bait and still canít catch them because they donít know how to fish them on the creeks. Always a good time, plus my girls have a blast reeling some in.

I'm out here. I sat until about 8:20 and decided to change batteries in my camera. Hadn't seen anything all morning so I didn't think it would be an issue. Got up and walked to my camera and a buck and a doe were ten yards to my right. Never heard or saw them. They didn't blow they just hurried away so hopefully they come back.

Iíve been hunting a scrape line last few weeks and always had some sort of deer moving thru. Wonder if this wind has them laid up and not moving much.

It's very windy for sure. I had deer on camera from midnight to 2:30am. I have a feeling they are going to be moving mid day today if at all.

Quiet here, I let my stand rest a week and this morning I noticed a quiver full of arrows with broad heads under my set up. If you can identify them I will return them.

Crazy you say that. My uncle told me last night that on the way to his stand he saw a tree stand and that there was a quiver full of arrows under it so he was looking around for a hunter. This was Friday evening.

I ventured pretty deep yesterday. Although I haven't seen any pigs in person, I did notice a lot of new rooting areas. I have one on camera every now and then but not seeing anything like I used to.

Amen to No flooding this year! Iím hoping it stays that way this winter to keep some of those small 8pt bucks around for next year. I found a small 6pt skull on the creek bank at the end of last year after the flooding stopped, Iím assuming he died from the flood.

Iíve been hunting Keechi Creek WMA(e-postcard hunt) and Sam Houston since I killed my Somerville buck, but no luck yet. Got close to a few at Keechi but rut was coming to a close when I arrived there and acorns were falling like rain drops all over. Sounds like yíall are hunting the same area lol....including someone else who left their arrows and quiver....based on what Iím seeing there are only like 1 or 2 ďareasĒ that you can go 1.6 miles deep unless you are entering a gate to use wind for your advantage. I seriously give you all props for walking that far! That would take me almost an hour to get into ....just because I walk really slow to avoid noise and sweating.

Pay attention!
All that chat about regulations discrepancy between the book and the county was clarified to me by a game warden.
Yesterday, I was about to drive away from the parking lot at the box #4, when a warden pulled up in his truck.
He asked if I had any luck and I told him that I was trying to get a doe on the last day, but didn't see anything. His reply was, it's good that you didn't shoot one because it's not allowed in Burleson. When I mentioned the book, he just ignored it and asked for my license.
So, follow county regulations, not the book.

Thatís a complete crock of ****. Itís a PHL with its own rules. Heís mistaken. Shoot you two bucks in each county and I bet you get slammed.

So that means we could have shot a doe up until the 17th?

This is crazy because I almost shot a doe on Lee County side and I would have had to drag it out on Burleson County side. ***?

I didn't ask his name. He was in his low 30s I would say and there was a female officer with him, but she kept silent.
