I’ve been following this thread since day 1. Had a couple of really awesome East Tx bucks this season hanging around but they have disappeared. Both mature and I have watched 1 for 7+ yrs. It’s hard when they don’t return mid season like they normally do. Hopefully whoever got him is grinning from ear to ear. Passed on a couple nice 4 yr olds within bow range holding out for the big boys.

I took my son out with me opening of Rifle season and he got a double. Literally dropped both bucks within 5’ of each other. Both we had never seen before and he did perfect dropping them with excellent placed shots. My deer season is over unless my main target returns however I can’t complain after the Kudu surprise I was able to take last week as many of you already know. Pretty memorable season with hopes that it isn’t over just yet!

Deer activity has been a little different this season than years past but still seeing good numbers. Not sure if weather or pressure from neighboring hunters. I have seen less dead deer on the highway near me so that’s good. We went through a rough start at bow season with trespassing, cell cams jacked with as well as stolen, neighbor issues searching for deer on my place and finding dead deer at my stand gut shot early October.

I’m still itching to get in the saddle and take a deer with the bow. Need some colder temps to hang around so my food plots can get more action and maybe just maybe big boy return.

First weekend I haven't been to the lease since September. I would be hunting now but I have a party to attend tonight. Sounds like I couldn't have picked a better weekend to take a break because those at the lease aren't seeing much.

Man this weather is terrible. I think I’m farther north than most of y’all as I am 30min south of Texarkana. It’s forecasted to cool down over the next two days but who knows. The warm front seems to have the skunks stirring at night

Looking forward to hunting the rain tomorrow instead of the muggy and foggy weather we have had this past week. I’ve always liked hunting the rain in a good all weather blind. Seems like that’s when the big boys like to move and rework scrapes.

Man we didn't see squat this weekend. I even got outside the box (literally and figuratively) and climbed a tree near a freshly worked scrape along a creek bottom where no one ever goes, and I didn't even see a bird.

My Plan C buck did show up in daylight, yesterday afternoon in fact, so I know he's still around. I'm gonna wait till the next good front blows through Saturday and go back up then.

If the weather cooperates the deer start running out of natural food sources so they hit feeders more regularly (like early season), and there's the matter of the secondary rut that happens around the middle part of December.

Unfortunately, in terms of natural food sources the weather has not lent itself to limiting their supply. No freezes = plenty of green stuff to munch on.

On a sad note it appears that the Wagon Wheel restaurant north of Trinity, that just opened right before bow season, is already closed down.

I swear that town cannot have anything good.

Main event was in daylight 2 times last week. Lots of movement still in all my sets, just need time to go.

Last week of season and 2 weeks following are the easiest by far to kill deer on most years. They are back on their velvet patterns and run down and HUNGRY! That 2 week muzzle loader season is Heck on my deer herds…. Good thing I can’t bowhunt them with the extra stamp money I pay to bowhunt. Just one of the many head scratcher rules of TPWD

Our bucks tend to vanish around Thanksgiving leaving only does and a few spikes. Iím usually out the woods fully come muzzleloader season. Might have to locate a muzzleloader and give it another go. .

I say it all of the time. I could have killed every buck on my place last year in the daylight in the last 2 weeks of season on corn or protein. Run down and hungry leaves them as vulnerable as being with a hot doe. But with that said I’ve watched deer the last 2 mornings grazing like cattle with everything still being so green. We need a hard frost or freeze to make it happen.

Dang, I never got a change to stop in there to try it.

Drove by it this afternoon on my way to the lease and saw they even took the signs down. Unless Romo's is opening again.

Trinity just canít have anything nice. Thank God Tacos By The Trax is still there.

That being said, on Wagon Wheelís Facebook page they indicated that they are simply looking for another location with lower rent, and will reopen as soon as they find something.

What happened to Tacos by the Tracks location in Riverside? It just vanished some months back.

Their street tacos are legit

Question for the guys versed in hunting around weather fronts: Friday looks nasty from start to finish. Obviously Saturday is going to be very nice but I can't hunt that day.

My question is, would Thursday afternoon before the rain sets in potentially be any good?

From my experience, nothing trumps hunting the first couple hours after the front initially passes. If its a drizzle rain, thats my favorite time to be in a box or ground blind.

Absolutely true, but that fronts gonna pass through sometime overnight Friday and into early Saturday morning, so that's not gonna work. Initially this front was supposed to pass through on Saturday and Sunday was going to be the best day, so I made other plans accordingly.

Well, thought I would take a chance this week and make a trip to my lease in Houston county. Have had a lot of "life" getting in the way this season.

With having the wife's birthday middle next week, then mine beginning of week after and our saviors at the end, next couple weeks are not looking good. I am running out of time.

Didnt get here until Tuesday morning and weather was decent, saw nothing but doe's (which I was hoping to thin out this season, but....lack of time) and had a sounder of hogs at feeder a couple hundred yards away and two different ones on either side of me at the same time in the evening. Both Tuesday & Wednesday. Guess I need to make thinning hogs a priority again after this season.

As of now, it looks like I will be putting all my chips in on the week between Christmas and New Years.

But also a little discouraged, as the two actual shooter bucks that have been around all year have not show on camera in about a week and a half. Day or night. There are several youngsters showing after dark that would be legal, but not what I am trying to accomplish at this place.

I sure hope the magical late season everyone speaks of will bless me with a miracle.

Sorry for the long read with no progress or nothing positive to give. I look forward to what you all are able to get on the ground.

I just found out the buck I've been waiting to come back to his core got shot several weeks ago on another lease.

I feel like I got kicked in the nads and punched in the gut at the same time. I am just sick. I had all the chances in the world in early October and never went in after him because it was too **** hot. Now I'm **** outta luck.

Full panels cut in half… 24”-25”. Worked for a few years. But they have them figured out now. I’m outta luck

After season I’m replacing all with hog panels and will stop feeding in them and switch over to coral traps. After I take out some known ring leaders I’ll start feed pens back up

Can’t have nice things……

Question. If they are in your feed pens daily and consuming 150 lbs of corn daily why are you not out there shooting them in the earhole?

Loggers are at it again on our lease, setting up today to start clear cutting again on Monday. The area they are cutting was thinned in September, and took me some work to clear all the limbs they left around my popup. Guess I'll be moving that stand this weekend.

I had a pig pipe staked out there until the hogs broke it off the chain and rolled it no telling where during October. One of the loggers saw the chain wrapped around the stake and how the ground was torn in a circle, and thought someone had staked out a dog there. Told the lease manager he was going to call SPCA about it until it was explained to him.
I'm getting tired of loggers.

I feel your pain. I have lost about 100 acres of what Iím hunting because the timber company realized they could sell red clay and make the property more profitable than waiting on the timber to mature. My bow stand is down hill from a red clay hill and theyíre digging about 150: yards from it now. Sat 2 times during bow season and got tired of listening to squeaky dozer tracks and dump trucks all morning. I still have about 300 acres unaffected but still have to pay for all of it. Rant over.

Listening to dozers and dump trucks is worse than crows.

Seems crazy to have thinned in Sept then come back and clear a few months later. Never seen that before.




On another note rain through most of the night with a front blowing in, should be a dang good morning to hunt! I am at work but good luck to those of you still at it.

I hate these vermin with every fiber of my being. 220 dead and I have more than when I started

We have been slinging 2 feeders and have a third free choice feeder near groveton and we canít kill a hog to save our life.

This is the season that keeps on giving.

So after finding out my primary target buck had been killed by someone on an adjoining lease opening weekend of the general season, I found out today that someone else on that lease killed my other target buck the same weekend.

I'm happy for them but still kicking myself for not going in in October and killing one of them myself. Lesson learned. Hunting in the heat might suck, but that time of year the deer don't care. If they're patterned go in and kill them because the rut brings nothing but heartache.
