I'm more like f***em. They need a dose of reality. I'll drag one out of trophy club golf course if I could.

Is there no access to the section off of 35 without going in by kayak/canoe?

My Father and I went out this morning. Hiked a good ways in. Saw a doe 200 yds from the truck and heard a hog before daylight. Had a coyote run past at 945. We decided to try walking to the area around 35 at 10am. We made it all the way to the narrow strip heading up Denton creek before we realized He wasn't going to make it there and back. We turned back at 1130 and didn't get back to the truck until 230. Jumped a sounder on the way in and a lone hog on the road heading toward the parking on bobcat Dr.

The mosquitos were terrible!!!

Just another fun day if hunting. Maybe next time we'll have something besides bug bites to show for it.

I have a question. If I want to go scout a location. Is it a good idea to go around Noon? I dont want to spook anything or mess up any youth hunts.

Honestly don't believe youth hurts are an issue there. Mid day should be fine this time of year also.

I saw the game wardens truck parked on the trail tonight, but didn't see the game warden. First time since I've been going out there that I've ever seen a patrol, makes me wonder if they were called in b/c something was reported.

Iíve had people get mad at me for going at noon but my thoughts are 1- what time is better for you? 7:30,noon, or 6:30? Also I think deer are so use to seeing people there it doesnít matter.. I had someone walk by me 30 min after shooting light one time and 15 minutes later I had 2 doe and a buck in front of me.. thatís not the only time I had a similar thing happen.. I donít hunt out there anymore because I moved from Keller to Decatur but Iím planning on the grasslands next year..

Knowing how some game wardens work, probably getting in some preseason hunting before it gets busy.

You might not have seen them, but I bet they saw you. I jumped about 10ft in the air when one walked up behind me last year while I was scouting. He said he had been following me for almost an hour. And, yes they protect that area like it's theirs. It's a good thing though, cus there is lots of poaching of imaginary jackalopes.

Good to know, and good feeling when you've got nothing to hide. I was mostly curious if they patrol regularly or if they had been called out because of a reported incident.

Iíve run into them multiple times out there. Talked to one for a while and he caught a guy dragging out a 10 point out one night and the guy only had a general permit. Said it was a dandy buck too. Theyíre always on the lookout around there.

Last year, they caught an older lady hunting hogs with an AR-15. Obviously that's illegal but she also didn't have a Vine permit or hunting license. She got a bunch of tickets. I'll bet it's comical how many people break the rules out there.
