Default First Point or Brushy Hill?

I am looking to book at one of these ranches and looking for opinions of hunters who have been there?

Thanks

Tracy

I hunted first point a few years ago. I really liked it. Had a nice 135-140 come in but got busted trying to draw back. They are some spooky and skittish deer and it makes it fun! Canít speak of the other place. I keep saying Iím gonna go back to first point but always seem to get too busy. Sleeping accommodations are ok. Yep Lenny of ground to hunt. Pretty nice deer on the place too. Not sure if Bo is still running it but he is very helpful and knowledgeable

Two friends and I hunted first point 5-6 years ago. It borders a large ranch with low hunting pressure that has big deer on it. We did see a monster buck mid day, going to the stand for the evening hunt. Great experience, I think the education you get from hunting some of the smartest deer on the planet, is worth the price of admission. Never hunted brushy so I can’t help you there. Good luck

I've hunted First Point quite a bit and killed a few bucks there. It's an awesome place with a lot of deer and the potential to kill a really big deer. Just have to be super careful with the wind and your setups. When you think you're brushed in good enough, spend another 30 minutes brushing in.

Having been to both My vote is First Point. Brushy Hill is nice but Iíve seen a lot more deer each hunt at First Point. Hopefully you catch the weather right. Brush in and watch the wind. Message if you have any questions. Been going the last 7 or 8 years

I’ve been to both, First Point is my favorite. I killed a 151 that’s on the First Point FB page. I saw good bucks at BH too, but not as many as FP. I’m headed to FP in Nov.

Iíll be at first point the 16th -22nd this is my 4th year to go. Always see deer have had several opportunities at bucks. Yes deer are very spooky, be on top of your stuff, take care of your clothes, no pop ups, make brush blinds and dig a hole down in the ground to help conceal you as much as possible. I also take a 6í tripod as well. Nothing taller than that.. If you find an old blind In a pasture and you are hunting it freshen it up with brush from another location of the pasture. Iíve had deer look at clean cut climbs before and get spooky. Just need to hide those clean cuts as much as possible. Even if you trim for shooting. Take a bucket of mud to dirty up clean wood cut ends. Itís a challenge down there but the group I go with are some good hunters and killed good bucks off this ranch. They taught me all the little tricks. Corn lightly they do not like kill piles of corn. Bo drives about 30 to 40 mph down the roads in a Sami corning so they are used to light corn. Donít take any scented corn or feed attractants. Sleep accommodations are ok 2 big trailers with bunks and twin beds. Does have running water, electricity, and kitchens very decent roads when they are not wet. That place can get real nasty on a rain. Hope this helps if you make it down there to hunt. Shoot straightÖ

They will pick them out. The place seeís a lot of pressure between hog hunters , quail hunters, and deer hunters everyday.

you can use pop ups. we have had success using them every year down there. the key is though is to brush them in so good, you'll drive right by them if you dont know its there.
