Doe and Turkey this morning. The river is up big time, and has changed. We've gotta drive through the Dry Frio to get to camp. I think the big guy upstairs was watching after us late last night when we went through. Water was coming over my hood

Beautiful sunset as I got to the ranch Friday evening. Hunted a little Saturday morning but only saw hogs. Spent the rest of the day getting a camper set up and then met my GF in San Antonio for date night. Turnpike Troubadours at Floores Country Store!

Didn't kill anything but I did see 12 Axis Saturday evening, including 2 decent bucks. Have a group of Red Deer hinds hitting the feeder morning and evening as well. I haven't seen the stag for a couple of weeks but I'm guessing he's not far.

Finally got the rifle blind set up Sunday. Didn't realize how heavy is was until I tried lifting it off the trailer by myself!

I'll be back out there Friday evening and staying until Tuesday.

Weve killed some hogs and i shot a bobcat last weekend. This past weekend was slow saw a few deer but not a lot of movement.

On a different note weve had a bunch of helicopters over the lease. Not 100% sure of where yet but that helicopter crash is on the lease beside us. Really sad for the couple that was just married and were leaving their wedding on the helicopter.

Ill be out here all week so well see how everything goes. Heck im just thankful to be out breathing fresh air and relaxing.

How's it looking in the Uvalde area? I spent a week of each of the last two months working at our ranch off of 83 North of town and it was a muddy mess but we got everything done. I'll be heading back to the ranch on the 30th to check cameras and catch the rut hunt.

Is it still as wet as it was a month ago? It rained every day on my last two trips enough to make the water reach the bridge at Deep Creek. We had water in places that I've never seen it in the 15 years I've hunted there.

I was out last weekend and it seemed like it was finally drying up a bit. All that rained washed away our main driveway, and turned one of our main ranch roads into a mud pit for the hogs.. Same thing, we found a dry creek that we've never seen water in (14 years) that was pumping water out of a 5-6 inch hole.

It wasn't bad at all this weekend. The grass is finally starting to turn brown. I can't remember the last time we had green grass that tall this time of year.

I'm starting to get concerned because I haven't seen my red deer in almost a week. The guy hunting on the other side of the mountain said he saw 3 or 4 dogs come by his feeder last weekend. Worried they may have pushed them out.

The good news is the WT are coming to the feeder a lot better now that the red deer have disappeared. Saw a 6 point hassling a doe Saturday and getting some decent bucks on camera.

We have a new camp deer hanging out with us every evening too. Set up a feeder this weekend to keep her happy.

Bust for me... My bigger bucks showed up Friday morning 8am (when I was driving there) and Saturday night at like 11pm. Only saw some doe, young bucks, and tons of hogs.. I took 6 hogs, and another guy took 3 hogs and an aoudad

It was a bust for me as well. Hunted Friday and Saturday and only saw 2 does. I blamed it on the full moon because nobody had any luck on our place. Had to fix my feed pen after the hogs busted in and took over. Headed back Thursday evening and staying until Monday.

Those lil *******s did the same thing at one of our pens.. We have so many, and I can see them pushing the deer away from the feeders and pens. I've personally taken 41 since January now, and I'm sure I haven't even dented their population.. I had pics of like 15-20 in a group with like 3 different pairs humping each other

I think I only saw 4 or 5 deer between Hondo and Sabinal last Thursday.

The pigs broke in to the feed pen on the 21st and I had up to 30 of them in there by the next day. Fixed it on the 23rd and just got my first deer back yesterday evening. Hate them things!

I was there last weekend. Saw more deer than I have been, including some decent bucks, just not the one I am looking for. I was able to get my oldest son on a doe and several hogs. Haven't seen my red deer in weeks.

Five of us hunted Nov-30 to Dec-9. Two mid 140 bucks were killed the last two days of the trip. Not much movement other than hogs and the Axis weren't around at all which is strange for our place. We are 13 miles N of town on 83.

The hogs have been particularly bad this year. Ive had enough, going to construct large pens In most feeder spots. Killed 24 since October 1st & you wouldnt know it. My expectations are high for these pens, I hope the deer congregate in them & the pigs leave the county with a severe case of depression since they cant eat my corn anymore. A massive pork suicide will occur shortly after. Maybe setting the bar a little high, but Im excited to see the effects.
