Default James Daughtrey Bow Hunt Jan 1-4th! Liveeeee

Was luck enough to get drawn for either bow either sex down at the James Daughtrey WMA which just so happens to be one of my favorite places to go!

Figured I would get a thread going as I have done in the past for these hunts and will do my best to keep you guys up to date.

Early forecast is showing highs in the mid 60’s and lows in the low 40’s which is fine with me! Planning on getting a portable tripod to set up over 2 spots with hand corn but spending most of my time still hunting with horns in hand. Of course this can all change depending on the unit I get and the advice I’ll be seeking from Chris and the gang down there.

Also will try to keep it live on Instagram as much as possible so feel free to follow there @brockoleeee


Here is a previous Daughtrey live thread that was a fun one:
https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...ames+Daughtrey


Also, anyone else drawn for the hunt and will be down there?

In my judgement that was one of the best threads of all time! Guess this means i’ll have To get Instagram. Do you put the write up on Instagram also or just the photos? ( I know, this is an old people question)

I’ve been wondering when you were going to live hunt again! You set the bar high.

Just videos on Instagram to keep a continuous feed going.

Iíll make sure updates and photos are still abundant on here!

Been wanting to do more live threads but unfortunately they were bringing to much attention to the lease Iím on so I stopped doing those. A public land live hunt is no issue though

I talked to biologist the other day about stand bys. He said maybe 1 only. That's a long drive for me for 1 standby.

I was down there last week for the gun management hunt. There were probably 7 standbys available with 8 who showed up. One guy went home. Everybody felt bad for the dude.

Sam and Murray are running the show and did a great job. Extremely helpful and friendly.

Check out all the antlered skulls laying around the headquarters. Lots of big bucks die of old age/natural causes down there.

Good luck!

I was actually hunting in South Shore State Park. The gun management hunt, which included South Shore, North Shore and Daughtery, was headquartered and run out of Daughtrey.

I spoke to some folks who hunted Daughtrey proper and they saw bucks that didn’t meet the management guidelines, i.e. too big. So yeah, they are there and hitting corn.

As for me, I took a doe and passed on a spike that I was hoping would have come out on the last day but he didn’t. I was holding out for a big 6 or 7.

Less than 24hrs and Iíll be back in the south Texas brush!
Did some more practicing and this was my last grouping at 60. Made a small adjustment and drilled the dot on the next shot and called it good.

They just drew the North shore units and now on to Daughtrey

Theres a gentleman here that looks to be caught in that massive North Shore drawing glitch that happened and they are ironing that out before continuing.
