So a game waster and multi time trespasser and illegal dumper get a pass, Is totally your prerogative, but to say a GW should be called down when using logical reasoning with proof of a deer. Then turn around and let a repeat offender slide just seems quite the contrary.

What deer are you talking about? Or animal? To mu knowledge he hasn’t killed any illegal animal or wasted one?

Didn’t have a weapon in him to my knowledge. Can’t prove he dumped. It’s my strong opinion he did.

If I speed 4 over and get caught I deserve a ticket. He CAN let me go
If a 10 shoots a 12” deer he deserves a ticket, he CAN be let go
An officer CAN NOT make up his rules before hand that go against the law

Everyone has the right to wave an offense

My sons were forgiven, so why shouldn’t I use mercy as well? I handles the problem I believe and made it noted with correct authority so IF THERE is a next it will be handled differently

I'm so confused.

Discretion or not? Or just when shot on a Tuesday full moon on every second leap year

.... yea auto correct missed a bunch there. Good lord.... that or the cracks in this screen saver (honestly had to correct 4 words in this post

Ain’t worth reposting and derailing this thread

Daughter got a big doe this evening on another property. She’s tagged out on doe. Neighbor at dairy shot the 8 we were going after tomorrow with muzzleloader. Called me to track. Let it lay till 9:30 or so and tracked 120-150ish yards on very little blood. I bet all of it would fit on 1/2 a business card. Looked like muscle blood to me. He’s been pretty regular at my protein feeder so maybe he shows back up.

I got “ME” she can go after and a wide 9 that we seen tonight. I’ve passed him 4 times but she was just waiting on a good shot. He didn’t like the new pop up even though it was inside wood line and brushed in. The Doe didn’t even pause

Hereís a short summary of my season. It started off with nothing but a ton of pigs and went downhill from there. Needless to say, I didnít sit in my stand much this season.

Yeah you're both gonna be sitting pretty when it's done.

The area I hunt on my lease was graded and few years ago but never cut. I sure wish they would cut it though. It'll never be better than the first 3 or 4 years after it's done.

Yup. Also gives us a chance to improve our trails. These trees were last cut 20+ years ago, so I shouldnít have to ever worry about this again.

Yes sir. Gonna have better trails and shooting lanes going forward, especially along the SMZ's where they leave the fire breaks.

Side note: my lease is MLDP so we're still hunting. That being said I am ready to get started for next season. Got some big plans at the lease and our farm that'll keep me occupied for a bit.

Getting on a lease in Hardin county for the 2021-22 season. The place is huge. From the map it looks like itís a mix of young to old pines, with one creek running through it that seems to have hardwoods surrounding it. Iíve hunted ETX for a few years now but itís always been in the hills which made picking hunting spots a little easier. For those of you hunting flat land pine plantations, what are some things to look for? I plan on primarily bow hunting and then finding a fire lane to have a box blind on. For the most part Iíll be in a lock on.

I would stick close to the SMZ (stream management zone, i.e. creek bottoms). That's where the oaks tend to be, and deer use them frequently as travel routes, especially if the surrounding pines are super thick.

What a season

I let Lola go after “Main Event” the last week of youth season. He did the same as he did to me. Missed him by 20min- 1 hr. The last weekend of youth we hunted Saturday am and pm... no show. Sunday school that morning and hunted the last evening.... nada. Pulled cameras and my lone wolf monday to monitor pigs..... he was in front of her blind and under my stand for an hour Sunday morning. Lol

Now he’s at my hog trap every day, so he made it through the season. Hopefully I’ll get a look at him as an 8.5 yo. Preliminary scouting today showed me where his main trail could be. If so that puts me 200 yards closer! Couldn’t go in there during season. Too risky

Did anyone notice a sizable decrease in doe sightings this season over years past? The two places I hunt it was absolutely stark. And I’m talking about places that are an hour apart and in two different counties, so it wasn’t an isolated thing.

We have been doe heavy for the last couple years. I think we knocked their number back a little this year and we increased the harvest by about 30%.

There were an immense number of fawns this year though.

They (does) completely disappeared from my place during the season this year. Or at least while I was hunting. I did not have game cameras out.

Historically it was nothing for us to see 20+ in one sitting at our farm, but this year the most we saw at a time was less than a dozen. And it was only one time that that happened.

I know we only killed 2 last year, and our neighbors killed a few but by and large no one around us hunts much, so I don't know where they could have gone.

Lots of scrapes all of a sudden over the last week or two.

I have a feeling we have some fawns crossing the weight threshold and are coming into season.

This partnered with some bucks that have lost their antlers.

Interesting times.

Sounds like species-identity dysphoria. There's umpteen human genders apparently, so why not pigs and deer?

Made one more trip to the lease before we called it a season today. Buck sightings were sparse as per usual for me this year, but I did get one more doe for the freezer. Shot her in the neck so I could save the heart and am really looking forward to that.

I’ve got some good things planned for next year and am really excited about getting started.

Still at it. Probably give it one more weekend.

The bucks were definitely hungry Friday and Saturday. You couldnít beat them off the feed either day. Surprisingly, most are still holding on to their horns. Only a couple have dropped that I have been seeing.

Sunday was a little slower, but the wind was way up. Say a bunch of fawns and a doe playing leap frog over the yellow corn road. It was comical to watch.

I figure in another 3 weeks or so half the bucks will be without them. But that just means itís closer to growing season once again.
