I went home to Harrison County this past weekend and my buddy brought his tractor and disc down to my place and disked it up and we planted and fertilized the pipeline. I also moved a ladder stand to the pipeline.

Gentlemen - I have a small 30 acre tract that is surrounded by other small tracts of land with people living on them. Hunting pressure is tough. In 20 years, never seen a good buck there. I will miss this weekend hunting w/ perfect conditions to hunt there b/c my entire family is doing a reunion at this place and hunting will be ruined.

My question is: When is the next time best to hunt before rifle season (assuming waiting for a cold front). Any specific days or several days that is best for the rut prior to rifle season?

If you're limited to weekends and can't make this one, get up there next weekend. There should be a reinforcing front come through late next week and things ought to still be mighty good!

Will do my man and that would be great. I'm bouncing back and forth from my bow lease near my house and my Pennington lease. Not sure where I will be the following weekend but will give you a shout if I head that way.

Seems like a lot.

I hear a lot of shots when sitting in the trees during bow season.

Yep. I always took my vacation the last week of October. Always looked forward to it like a kid does Christmas. The past few years though, I probably should have taken my vacation a week earlier.

After the past three weekends of scouting and hunting with discouraging results, I finally found where the deer are on my lease. They are concentrated on the few oaks that are dropping acorns, and traveling the routes between them. I'll be moving my portable stands accordingly ASAP.

I am in Polk county and for some reason a lot of East Texas hunters are like dove hunters. The early season dove hunters have a good shoot for a few days and the birds disappear and they chalk it up and never go back for the later half when the winter flocks show up and it gets really good. On my place the hunting can actually get better after the rut has passed. Now the bucks are hungry and start showing back up at the feed stations like they were before the rut really kicked off. When the food supply has been depleted and the harmones are starting to subside an old buck can slip up in the daylight just like being on a hot doe. I shot my target buck last year on Thanksgiving morning with his nose in the protein feeder. I had hunted every morning since the general season started and was the first time I had seen him in daylight.

Lmao you got me. Really Iím curious as to his reaction when he first got the deer on camera if he did. Do you tell anyone? Do you call in sick to work for the next month? Canít imagine what Iíd do if that guy showed up in my spots.

East Texas hunting can get tough after the first few weeks of the woods being full of human activity. Our deer seem to vanish by second week of November, so a lot of members don't hunt much after that. Usually by the second week of December hardly anyone goes to the lease and they start showing up again at the feeders. By Christmas they are hungry and hitting the feed hard.

I've hunted East Texas deer for the past 42 years. The first 20 years I didn't feed at all, not even hand corn. I hunted trails, scrapes, and especially oaks dropping acorns, usually filling 4 deer tags during October. It wasn't until I introduced my son to hunting that I started using feeders because it was easier to sit with him in a blind watching one. For about 10 years there I was a "feeder watcher" hoping to draw the deer to me, but just didn't see the quality or numbers of deer that I saw when I was actually "hunting for them".
I still use feeders, mostly for hogs, but have pretty much gone back to hunting deer the way I learned how to and seeing more mature deer.

It's also nice to draw back on a calm deer instead of a nervous one around a feeder!

It sounds like you definitely know what your doing. East Texas can be very rewarding and at the same time be very humbling. The deer are smart and more times than not we are hunting on their terms not ours. Through the years I have found that you can definitely pattern a good buck, but you better be ready to clear your schedule and prioritize quickly while he is on a pattern. It could change the next day. Good luck to you sir.

Thank you.

Very true...East Texas can really be a challenge.

I always enjoyed getting on the tracks of a big buck and just following them to wherever they led me, even if it meant crawling on hands and knees through briar patches and thick brush. Doing so can lead you to some great locations you likely would not have discovered otherwise.

Best of luck to you!

Thanks for the insight - what makes you wished it would have been a week prior? No luck the last week of October or just a trend you are seeing?
