Default Polk and Hardin Co. Hunters thread.

Thought I would narrow the E Tx area some.
Be nice to see who all is around close . Maybe visit at camps or maybe need some help while at the lease.
Also see how the deer movement and rut is going in our neck of the woods.
I hunt right at the Polk/ Hardin Co line in Votaw along with a couple other TBHers.

I'm close to y'all, BTB...just south of the Polk/Hardin line myself. I just got on the lease a couple of weeks ago, haven't done much other than throw up a feeder, put out some hand corn down in the SMZ, and threw a camera up overlooking the hand corn. Looking forward to seeing what all is out there this year. My buddy who convinced me to get on the lease is a great guy, so no matter what the hunting turns out to be like, we'll have a good time around the campfire this year

I'm outside of honey island, 7 miles down 943. Good lease so far. Set up everything to bow hunt labor day weekend and the dam loggers decided to come in and start cutting. So had to go back and take everything down. Still hoping it will be ok when they finish

I had to come back and say, with these two east tx counties, I have high expectations for this thread....both highs and lows and everything in between. Large counties and lots of TBH members hunting them. This should get good.

I've been hoping to get a food plot planted this week, but it's been raining every evening. I don't have cameras out yet, but probably will this coming weekend. I too hunt the same lease as BTB. Can't wait to get in a pine tree opening morning

I’ve been on the same Lease in Dallardsville for 20+ years. I got my bow stands ready the last weekend in August and put out cameras. I normally don’t get any good buck pictures till the end of September. Hoping for a better year this year. I know a good 10 and a decent 8 made it through last year.
I would be up for a Polk/Hardin get together.

I haven't officially met but 2 fellas other than my friend who convinced me to get on the lease. But if I meet him, I'll tell him is that the buck that was posted earlier this year on an old thread about Pine Ridge? If so, I hope his genetics are in abundant supply
