Looks like the belt needs some modification, or a new belt and you can hang on to the old belt?

Keeping the old one for now went from 56 inches to 40 inches. It is fun to use to tell the story.

Me and my son will be at Whitney this afternoon if anyone needs help keeping them in the air. That's a big assumption that there will be enough birds flying to do so! Probably H2 where the 2 big open fields are. Was by there last week and quite a bit of sunflowers and open enough to find what you shoot.

Nothing but a few singles. No groups or even doubles. Birds were not flying.

Hoping it's for the better. And hope you can still hunt the W lake. Fishing the upper end in the spring will be good.

The fish are biting. And there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!

I was drawn for the muzzle loader antlerless hunt this year at Lake Whitney. It sounds like there are a lot of hunting opportunities around this area? Do you know how this draw hunt will be different then all the other hunting opportunities around the area? Thanks

CW, I know "switchback" has been on that hunt a few times now. It's pretty straight forward just like TPW describes on the Web site. Nothing like the rest of the lake. Staff takes you to and from blind, ect.

There has been very little run-off in most of the lakes around Texas except Twin Buttes that came up 1.07 feet. Course it's 47.68 feet low right now. And that's not a type-o.


PK has risen + .13' (or about 1.5 inches) in the last 24hr. Grandbury had come up .03 feet. And Whitney has broke even at 0.0 feet. Still 6.65 feet low.

Camped at Cedron all week, camping was good, weather except for temps was good, fishing wasn't good. Nice group of bachelor bucks in the park.

Howdy All -

Hopefully everyone is doing well. Will be my third season on public land, second with bow. Out scouting lately, man just like @Chino said last year, the vegetation is real and all the late summer rain is going to see it grow taller! Got a bit of scouting in this last weekend some promising signs for sure. Also, came across several old deer carcass, including one buck... never like finding them that way. Most fun part of the weekend was having 17 turkey's pace me down the road while leaving.

I'll be chasing the teal somewhere Sunday morning. Won't be on the right side of IH35 to chase the Canadas so I'll have to give them a pass unfortunately.

Be careful where you step.. I walked right over the top of this guy this morning. My buddy behind me spotted it. It never moved or rattled.

Great pic! And glad ys didn't get bit.



They are out there. And still going strong into December. I've run across a number of them over the years. And know some places where they can be found on a regular basis.
