I hunted around Dickens when I was going to Tech in the mid nineties. It always seemed without fail the rut would start around Thanksgiving and be really on the first week of December. If it was really green then deer sightings were minimal until bad weather kicked in.

Nothing and I mean NOTHING of any size or age moving on our place. Worst I have seen! No fawn crop, no quail and no mature deer so far. Lots, and Lots of greenery still around. Even when a turkey or hog comes thru a feeder, they eat, maybe, and then leave quickly!

No deer seen this am from the blind. Driving around picking up other hunters we saw multiple bucks and does feeding on the green growth growing in the sandy areas. We need a whopper freeze ASAP. Iíve killed 200 plus mosquitos in this trip. I thought I was done with thermacells for the year.

Well got to hunt last night and this morning near McLean. Thinking they would move last night before storm, but it average at best. This morning was slowest in a few years, no tracks going across roads, little movement any where. Guessing tonight or tomorrow should be good as these deer come back out of the thick stuff.

We got some in Hemphill Co. Not sure how much because the wind was blowing so hard that it was hard to tell what was accumulated and what had drifted. I would guess an inch or so on our place. But we had a drift at our gate that was at least 3 feet high.

I got stuck on the east-west portion of our ranch road which has been dug out over the years by graders and filled up with drifting snow. Fortunately, a good neighbor drove his tractor over and yanked me out (and cleared the drift at the gate).

Anyone else just seeing "potential"? My best pictures are 3.5 year olds (4 or so) and twice as many 2.5's and younger.

I know the 2011 - 2013 drought was rough and I know "potential" is way better than nothing, but it seems like I would occasionally see, or at least get night time pictures of, the progenitors of the 3.5's and younger. I'm beginning to think that after 3.5 years, a buck moves into an underground bunker and is taught to avoid cameras on those rare occasions they emerge.

Too much rain and too much natural browse right now. They are incognito. Will show back up soon with all the recent freezes killing off vegetation. Drought didnt help things as far as #s 5-7 age class either. It's a double whammy with low #s and range conditions.

Nice 9 pointer I got on Sunday the 11th at my family's place in Carson County. My biggest buck to date, and the biggest one I've seen in person on this farm. I've seen some bigger ones on camera, but never during the daytime.

Not a bow kill (deer aren't coming to my feeder for the last week or so). Shot at 185 yards with my .308.

I think I have this guy on camera late this summer, but not sure, as more than 1 deer I've seen has this crab claw on the right side.

Heck of a buck coming out of Carson county. I see more and more WT on prairies in north central Carson which to me is odd given the lack of trees. Good job.

Heck of a buck coming out of Carson county. I see more and more WT on prairies in north central Carson which to me is odd given the lack of trees. Good job.
Yeah, there's very little tree cover in the area, but a ton of corn and milo fields. Our particular property has a lot of deer that move through and they can hide so well in the little undulations in the land. Almost like mule deer out west. We're in South Eastern Carson County just north of Groom.

This guy was actually bedded down in a dry creek bed when I spotted him and I watched him through the scope for about 15 minutes before he finally stood up. It was a good thing for me, because it gave me time to calm down, check the yardage several times and made a good shot. He ran about 25 yards.
