Man that’s freakin cool. We’ve always talked about maybe calling one up down there, but it’s not likely since we usually shoot a fox less than 5mins into each set.

I bet he’s not too conducive to good deer hunting, we’ve never had a picture of one but had feeders that the deer activity fell off considerably for a while. Did it seem to spook the deer off your feeder for any length of time?

Took this joker Saturday morning. Pretty frame but the lack of brow-tines got his ticket punched

Looks like a big mature tom. I'm still getting pics of one or two cats on my set up and one other. I had a pic of one cat jumping in the feed pen and a coon was already there. That coon was bowed up and hissing. LOL! I shoulda kept that pic.

I won't make it out until the second or third week of gun season. I'm anxious to see if the cats are still there. It makes for an interesting hunt and walking to the stands in the dark.

I saw Terrell County SO's facebook post on that yesterday.

We've had run-ins with illegals a couple of times. The last time as two years ago. Young man on the lease saw 4 walking in the river bed near our camp house. All wearing the same clothing and same color backpacks. The knew where our water was and everything. Kid met them 4 by accident as they came out of the brush. They didn't want to comply when he told them they were going one way and he was going the other. They had a Mexican stand off for awhile but they finally did what the kid told them. Good thing the kids father was ex-military and about 150 yards behind him. He had the .308 trained on them if they started getting frisky.

Lease members dialed 911 and it took the SO 2.5 hours to get there. Wasn't any point in looking for them. They were long gone.

I've had pictures of them walking by a feeder that my fiance like to hunt. she gets a little nervous every time we go out. She likes to hunt alone most times, but I make sure she has her pistol with her.

Headed out there next Wednesday some of my lease mates are there. I gave them a heads up. Our lease is 8 miles north of Dryden just off of Hwy 349 so this was close. Thanks SabreKiller for posting. I carry a six shooter .357 mag with 3 hollow points and 3 snake shot. Probable change that out to 6 hollow points.

I always carry. I have my service weapon or my off duty weapon on me most of the time or in the glove box of the mule when I'm filling feeders. I always check the camp house and surrounding outbuildings pretty good as son as I arrive as well.

Nothing gets your blood pumping like driving up late at night and see people scampering out of the camp house like a covey of quail.

That's where we hunt also. I always carry XD.40, and sometimes a .357. We have seen plenty, but never had an issue yet

Hey y’all. I’ll be hunting Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge tomorrow. I’ll let y’all know how it goes. Won’t be able to make it out to Dryden until December. Good Luck to anyone heading out.

Anyone else get a visit?

On another note;

I hunt across from Terrell county gas plant. WEBOOST last few years was hit or miss for cell phone service (Verizon). I purchased a 2020 GMC 2500 that has the wifi hotspot and problem solved using wifi calling on my cell phone. Before anyone rants about phone service at the lease, I have a son that is training with MARSOC US Marines and I choose not to be unreachable.

Warden Price is a great law enforcement officer.

Several of the lease members are out at the lease this weekend. Ya just never know what's gonna show up sometimes. We rarely see an exotic other than Barbado/mouflon sheep crosses that we've nearly eliminated, but this white fallow showed up today and ran across the road in front of one of the hunters.

I'm glad he skimmed him. I prefer not to have any of these running around.
