Some crazy high winds hit the area. I was just south of graham when I went through it and it had to be 60-70 mph. Thought the truck was going to leave the road. Hopefully everyone’s blinds stayed upright

Darn, my place is just North of Breckinridge. Hope everything is still standing. Shot a pig this AM and found a shed
Hope to get a few sits in next weekend.

Congrats to all the kills this weekend! With the hot weather and high winds I made 4 sits and saw a lot less deer coming out in shooting hours. Let a couple doe pass and never laid eyes on a shooter buck, at least the fishing was hot! Hopefully this cooler weather heading our way will lead to some more LDPs on this thread!

The weather got western at our place Saturday around 6pm. Storms just kept back building just SW of our place. Electric poles snapped, blinds destroyed. We found pieces of blinds 1500 yards from where they were supposed to be.
The two reveal camera pics. 6:10 blind in back ground. 6:14 She Gone!

Plus side we did get 2 inches of rain on the wheat and oats. Might be hunting from folding chairs instead of blinds from here out!

They are moving cattle off the pasture I hunt witch is a great thing. But how will this effect my deer hunting with the helicopter activity? Only took them about 1 1/2 to finish.

Just curious what the difference between a hand cut steak versus a sawed steak is, do they taste the same 😀

Throckmorton is looking good, with all the rain the pastures have stayed green all summer.
We're seeing some good young deer, no shooter yet.

Good info. That time of year. We hung cattle ear tags in all the blinds a couple of weeks ago. I hope they work as advertised.

Ear tags work pretty good. These seem to work even better for wasps and spiders and such....

Just in the last couple days we are starting to see deer at feeders during legal shooting hours but only does so far - our handful of shooter bucks are still hitting feeders at night. Hopefully I can catch one at one of my set-ups away from the feeders. Bucks still running together as far as I can tell.

We have used those too Shane. They do work well. We cut them in two to get them in all the blinds.

Man our area has not exactly been hoppin during bow season. Maybe you guys are holding out on LDPs.

Our place starts heating up during the rut around Thanksgiving. Then it is really the best in late December when all the pasture grasses are dead on the big neighbors and they travel long range to our wheat and oats. I hope it is no different this year.

Here's wishing everyone the best of luck on opening weekend and safe travels to your destinations!

Here’s a huge bodied deer that’s a regular. He’s probably the largest whitetail I’ve ever seen. He’s a tank.

Movements have been on the incline. Plenty of 3.5 and younger bucks. They pushing doe off the feeders and seen some scrapes. The next few days hopefully get some more mature deer moving.

Watching a 3 year old chase a doe off as I type this.

Got on the board last night!

Shot a big doe, looked good but virtually no blood trail. Of course I didn’t bring the dog last night………. Looked with my uncle for 1.5 - 2 hours before my wife came with the dog. Molly found her laid up under some trees in about 5 minutes. Hit her square in the lung but didn’t get a pass thru and she was fat all leading to little blood. Ended up weighing 110lb dressed which is the new record for heaviest doe shot at my uncles ranch. Now I get to break in my new processing equipment!



I have a video of the kill shot but don’t know how to attach it lol

I didn't get to go this weekend. From all reports there was movement with a bunch of young bucks and lots and lots of doe. Typical for us on the opener.

Pretty much the same at our place between Throckmorton and Seymour. I saw several young bucks still together but acting a little aggressive toward each other. They were pestering the does a little but not much. Couldn't tell you what the mature ones were doing.

Same for us we were there all week. 1-3 y/o bumping doe off the corn feeders. Spikes and forkeys fighting like crazy and a couple 3 year Olds that think they are boss hawg at the feeders. Of course after I leave a couple mature ones show up but that's why they are mature. (See picture) Deer were moving like crazy the early part of the week then it slowed towards the weekend.

Hopefully this weekend will be better. We only get 8 hunts up there this season on Thursday evening through Monday morning with no game cams or scouting reports. I was hoping the bigger deer would be chasing by this weekend but it doesn't sound like too much rut activity yet up that way. I'm an East Texas boy so that part of the world is different for me.

Best of luck. My experience is that you've got to get on them early, get lucky during in the rut; Or - wait until late in the season, hunt the wheat, and watch for the big boys. The only thing is, the later in the season you go, the more beat up the bucks get. It's a challenge for sure.
