How did everyone's season go? I got a doe Thanksgiving morning, but buck sightings from the stand were few and far between. Hopefully the area gets some good rain with this system moving in. It's been pretty **** dry where we're at.

Nada. Hunted hard and I had a couple decent deer coming in and found out the buck I was hunting after was shot just a few days before the season was over with. A couple of lessons learned this year.

1. From Feb-August deer do not show up on the property. From August to the end of October is when deer come around.
2. Deer in the area are mainly nocturnal.
3. We finally have does coming into the feeder which is a first for us!!!
4. The number of Coyotes in the area is astounding and they will eat buckwheat, deer corn, and roasted soy beans.
5. Still no pigs which is good thing but having something else to target would be great.
6. ALWAYS keep the grass trimmed by the feeder.

2. That's interesting. We have quite a bit of late morning/mid-day activity where we're at. We saw multiple groups of deer in the area around 2:00 in the afternoon this past Saturday.

5. You can take ours . They're not terrible, but enough to **** you off. I transplanted three small yaupons the weekend prior to this past, and they literally dug in that one specific area, which ended up taking the yaupons out of the ground. I guess the freshly turned up soil got them worked up. They were still green, so I replanted them. We'll see what happens.

Our deer are mostly nocturnal also. I don’t think we have enough cover at our place to make them feel comfortable all season long. The only time we have consistent daylight sightings are mid to late October. We had a nice 8 pt heavy horned buck but he broke off half a side early. I watched a weird 10pt buck on camera all season. I saw him in daylight once. On New Years Eve. I was in my pajamas and he was practically in the back yard. He lives through the general season so maybe I’ll see him next year.

No pig sightings for us either. Did see 2 axis on Christmas evening.

Just south of Sheridan.

Hunted hard this year as we built a new stand. Saw a bunch of basket rack bucks and more does than I could count.

Thanksgiving weekend, not 1 doe! but about 5-6 baskets and a couple spikes

Shot my buck on Nov 26. 9 point 15.5" spread. Over thanksgiving I counted 19 shots from the same stand in 4 days. It sounded like WW3.

Overall it was a good year. Took my daughter for the first time and we had deer 15 yds from us the whole time. She loved it! Looking forward to many hunts out there with her and hopefully some of these basket bucks develop

If you hadn't mentioned Sheridan, I would have sworn that we had a neighbor in common Thanksgiving weekend was brutal for deer at the farm. I had intended on killing a couple, but after realizing that the neighbor next door had leased his property for the first time, I waited to see what would happen. Lets just say that they succeeded in thinning the herd. I have never heard anything like it, and I've hunted East Texas my whole life it was seriously brutal sounding...guess they were getting their moneys worth. I decided to let every doe walk, and see where we end up after season. I haven't checked my cameras lately, hope I'm pleasantly surprised at what I find. Either way, we had a good year. My wife and daughter both killed their first bucks, so I'm happy with that

I saw this deer in person on 10/12/19 but couldn't get a shot. My Dad found his skeleton mostly buried in the sand in the wet weather creek that runs through our property. I guess that answers that... HE GONE!

First deer shot on our place in Fayette county since 1986. My brother and his buddies killed an 8 and a 4 back then. We never hunt it. But wife wanted to go camping New Years weekend

Sorry I’m late to the party. Just finding this thread.
Last year was a bummer for us. We had 5 mature bucks (5+yo) that either didn’t show back up after 2019 season or vanished prior to hunting in 2020. Only 6 year old that returned got a pass from everyone on our team but disappeared mid-November and still hasn’t showed up. Haven’t killed a deer since 2018 and won’t have any returning 6 year olds to hunt this year. We will have a few 5 year olds that might make the list if they add enough inches. Pastures are in great shape right now. But we need a gully washer to fill the ponds. GL everybody.

Had a decent year at our place in Mentz. Wife shot biggest buck we have taken, a good solid heavy 130 “ buck and shot 3 does. Saw lots of bucks, just small 8”s. Looking forward to checking my cameras and seeing what’s around this year.

I almost forgot about this thread ha ha! Some really nice looking deer. Looks like we got some much needed rain. Our pond got about a foot higher with the rain from last week. Should be full now .

My sons girlfriend came over and said there was a deer just standing by the gate and didn’t move as they went by. Two hours later she left and said the deer was dead. We live about a mile from a main road. I’m guessing he got hit. And stumbled our way and died

Our ponds were 14-16" low before the rain a week or so ago. Filled pretty much up with that one, this one has the dam roaring as well as the creek up into the middle pasture. I'm sure I'll be cleaning my feeder out again after it goes down...oh well, the hogs will have the soured corn cleaned up in no time unfortunately, I will more than likely have to replace 4 of my cameras, they're underwater again

Ya if youve got ponds around New Ulm or Industry, they should be full. We’ve had 12”+ in the last week or so.

Im a little north and west. Although on the southern portion of the bad part. Our lower fence was all but under water and the road pretty well washed out. Counties got a lot of gravel roads to fix for the second time in a week. I dont know how much rain we got, but it was coming in sideways and hard as ever.

Definitely a really nice buck for the area. The majority of the better bucks I've had on camera are in the 13" - 15" range. The one I killed three years ago was 13" & the one we found dead earlier this year was 14".

Had our first sighting of a buck at our place. Alittle earlier than normal here by a couple weeks. Usually they disappear all summer long. I guess they go into the Mill Creek bottom or the deep woods.

Thats good to hear! We were seeing some pretty nice bucks in the area of our New Ulm property, but we sold it, so im not sure whats going on there now.

Anybody hunt in the Shelby/Latium area? We’ll be out that way now.

Good. That should mean they're around for hunting season . Our place is the same way. Nothing all summer, then it's like a switch gets flipped from late September/early October through the winter.

Buck broke out of their bachelor herd about two weeks ago. One small buck was harassing a doe pretty hard this morning. I imagine the main rut will kick off in about two weeks.

Anybody sit in the stand this past weekend? I didn't really feel like it, but I sat Saturday evening because of the wind direction, and saw a doe & a yearling. They got behind me and the doe raised all sorts of hell. Go figure...

We lost our place south right after season. It closed in July so we had time to get our stuff off. Funny part is the people who bought it put cameras up on our feeder and filled it. Guess they thought we were leaving our blinds and feeders. Had to dump 300lbs of corn out.

Hauled everything off in mid june. Buried the jeep getting the blind out so they now have some big ruts to get to the feeder.

We got everything moved to one of our cattle leases and now dealing with the neighbors dogs. HE has been warned about them chasing our newborns but now we have proof with the camera.

Have a couple bucks on camera but I wont get to sit until after football season.

Sat all weekend, was pretty slow. Saw a couple small/young bucks, couple does, and couple fawns. The mature 8 I have on camera every day over the summer quit coming in 5-6 days ago. Same for a handful of nice younger bucks. Hope to sit this weekend with the front coming in.

I haven't sat since opening day, but it's getting to be that time. The deer skull I posted a picture of earlier this year, I saw that buck on 10/12/19. He came out and made a scrape about 30 minutes before dark. That same morning, I saw two bucks fighting off of 389. I had the buck I killed a few years ago on camera for the first time on 10/18/18. Had multiple other solid deer on the camera within a day or two.

I was expecting it to be starting here in the next week or two. Thinking maybe this good cool front coming thru Friday might help get it kicked off.

I've seen a few young and dumb bucks chasing uninterested doe...other than that, I haven't noticed anything yet. But its about time for it to kick off for sure. I need to check my camera that I put down at the edge of the creek bank, to see if any surprises are trying to slip through undetected

Sat this morning and saw four different bucks. One was cruising, one was bumping does around, & the one bumping does sparred with another buck as well. Most of the activity was between 7:45 & 8:30.
