I'm looking forward to the cool weather in Elkhart next weekend. I'm going old school this season in East Tx. I didn't use any cameras this year because I took them all to my place in Oklahoma. If it walks out, is mature, and gets me excited, I'm gonn fling an arrow.

Picked up a new tripod, camera, and some seeds. Wish I could have planted last weekend with all the rain but couldn't. Pretty pumped about this deer season, ready to get rollin'.

When acorns are far and few in between how much activity do yíall see pick up in the berry thickets? Iíd imagine this would be the case, last time I was out the berry thickets were absolutely loaded.

Here in Panola Co., pin oaks are starting to drop. The big white oak akerns are still on the trees. Got 8 feeders going 2 weeks ago and between the deer and hogs, they are cleaning them up mornings and evenings. My big bucks haven't shown up yet. Usually middle of Oct I'll start seeing some good pics. So far, only a 7 and 8pt has shown up on camera. I'll start getting pics of the good ones when they start laying down scrapes. That's where my cameras are, where they make scrape lines every year.

Good afternoon all, this will be my first year on a lease out near Lake Fork. I’ve done some googling but want opinions from the green screen. Best meat processor in the area? Best Taxidermist?

I was thinking Alexander’s for the meat, and People’s taxidermy for the mount.

Thoughts?

I havenít heard of either. Iím just north of Fork. I like Wallace Processing. Only downside is he uses butcher paper. No vacuum sealing. But I like the service and have nothing but good experiences.

I hear Andrews Taxidermy near Commerce is good but havenít used him. My taxidermist doesnít do much anymore. Only for folks he knows.

I've used Hopkins county meat locker in sulphur springs for a few years and they've always done me right and delivered a good product. Unfortunately I havent had much use for a taxi but I did have an axis made in to some pillows. I called josh at peoples taxidermy and although he wasnt able to do it he pointed me in the right direction and got me taken care of. Anytime I've had a question I dont hesitate to call him and he always gives me an answer.

Definitely, good luck to you all. Looking forward to seeing all your pics and hopefully have some of my own.

I am heading out today for one more hand corn drop and then wait.... Or maybe try to get some pork to mix with my venison for sausage. The weather is just too good to pass up.

Man these big boys just have a 6th sense my two target bucks have either ghosted or become sporadic on days one pops up at best over the past week. Crazy how they go from daylight am/pm to either vanishing or hit or miss every year. Smart smart creatures

All the big ones I have been getting pics of for months have left. I was getting several pics of each day and night. Both really nice. One with a big drop tine. Both tens.

Lots of 2.5 and 3.5 year-olds have now moved in.
