Default Enchanted Rock Antlerless Spike 11/9 -11/12

Got lucky and drew for Enchanted Rock 11/9/2021- 11/12/2021 for Antlerless/ Spike. I have hiked there before but never been on a hunt there. I will be looking to fill the freezer on this one. Anyone else going? The threads I have read are real positive from last year. Hope we do as well as they did.

I'll be there on the same hunt! I might camp in the park, weather forecast permitting. If not, then I'll find a cabin somewhere.

We will probably stay in an RV Park about 15 miles away.

I just got hold of Oxford Campgrounds, and got the details. Looks like I may be staying there also. They got the basics I need. Said I could rent an RV space for my tent if I want Electric.


I've got a topper on the back of my x-cab truck if weather gets really bad.

Camp is set. Met MntMike and his buddy. Waiting on a little 12v tire air inflator to air up my mattress. Forgot my mattress inflator . This thing is taking forever!

As the coyotes make a last plea for company, the crescent moon has set. And once again, I'm reminded by our creator just how many stars are in the sky.

Good luck Gentlemen!! I'll be watching for pics! I was near there this past weekend-the bucks were camping our feeders-not for corn, just waiting for the does to show up then they would get up and trot on the downwind side! The rut is in full swing in the hill country!!

In and set. Only 1 bar service. And I'm pretty high up over looking a gully. Max shot 150ish.

A mnt lion had been spotted from this blind, twice. It would make my second one if I see one. They are off limits.

I've heard a few shots this morning between 6:30 something and 7:30. Will check to see what's been taken when I get back. Wind is whipping right now!

I almost missed getting up and making therideto the blind. My sound was still on silent from yesterday evening . Got there with 15 minutes to spare.

Back at it. They just weren't moving this morning. 1 boar hog about 190 with good cutters was shot. I think the wind probably kept them down. They were out and about last night. They left a lot of scat in my corn. Hopefully with the front coming, they will move this evening.

Nothing this evening. Heard some blowing. But they don't blow like a lot of other deer. More so to slightly clear sinus.

I'll get a meat report when I get back to my truck. I did hear 2 different shots.

Man, personal drivers? That's a high class hunt right there. I've parked in the wrong neighborhood. If I were hunting there I'd have to scrap the Chevy and put a BMW up on blocks!

Good luck tomorrow Mike. It's gonna be the day. I can feel it.

Scouted one of my home lakes. Had a few rafting out in the open. Maybe 20 or so. Resting greys I suspect.

My last day. I'll skip the morning hunt tomorrow and head back to the metro-mess. Gotta pick up a lab dog before noon Saturday. And don't wanna drive in late Friday.

7:20, and I haven't heard any shots from anywhere in the region! Very unusual for Llanno/Fredericksburg area.

Well, I had something in over night. Had most of a 50 lb bag on the ground. Deer had been in it overnight on Tuesday night. I heard some lambs coming up the canyon while waiting for my ride last night. I counted 14 curnels of corn left just now. I'll bring a bit for this evening just to see what happens.

I went on a hunt there and will never go back. The 3 deer that were killed were all killed at the same spot. I actually left with 2 days left to hunt. Didn't see a deer or animal. We actually have 20 acres that is 9 miles south on 965 and see animals all the time, so it was weird not seeing anything. Plus the blinds that I was in were not the best.

Totals so far: 8 deer and 4 pigs.

They are here. Ranger said the camping area was full of them last night. Lots of clear area and green browse there.

I've been seeing lots of them on the roadside in the morning darkness and at night. Thought I was going to clobber one thing morning on the way to the hunt.

Surprised you aren't killing more. Looks like you are the first gun hunt at the park. I know some of those park hunts, if you are on the last hunt of the year it's been shot up pretty well by then at each blind site.

On a positive, at least they know the corn is there and maybe they'll slip in earlier tonight. Good luck.

In for the final hunt. I'm just thankful that I've been able to come here. I've never been inside the park. But have riden by several times on a bicycle when I was younger, and riding all the time. I also had 11 hrs geology as my science electives at university. And really enjoyed it. So, this trip has been awe inspiring to say the least!

Finally, with just minutes to spare, I had 2 groups come in. But the mature does wouldn't eat. They were just to skittish and took the others with them. Then with less than 10 minutes to spare, I had a lone doe come in. And dropped her where she stood.

It's been a fun time for me. And I've enjoyed just getting to visit the park. And make some more new friends. I did get to meet and share a campfire with MntMike and his buddy. As well as a meet a few other people.

I'm not certain as to the final numbers yet. But will try to get a total in a few days.
