Just got back from the lease. I have seen more bucks on camera but not really seeing any signs of rutting. Guess they are going to start later this year.

I started a new thread but figured I would post here to. Needing to get a young dog on some easy tracks. If anyone gets a deer this weekend and can back out and wait for us I will track for free when you really need us.

Is it just our place or is it extremely slow this weekend? Not many deer and no rut activity. Thoughts?

Was bad slow at our place, not even any pigs came out, but there were so many people running around and shooting in the area Iím sure that slowed things down. I hate Opening day of gun season
Things are so much more peaceful during bow season.
Off to Luckenbach next week followed by a week in Oklahoma so wonít be back to the farm until thanksgiving week, guess Iíll miss the rut this year.

Not slow at my place, had 21 does and 5 bucks on the food plot or road corn Saturday morning. The bucks were running the does hard. Had 8 pigs come out, nephew and I killed 2. Evening hunt we had 16 does, 3 small bucks and a coyote come out, nephew killed the coyote. Sunday morning had 18 does and a small 4 point and 6 point pestering does, nephew shot a large boar hog eating the road corn. Neighbor had similar sightings as us, he killed 2 pigs on Saturday. I only herd 8 shots all weekend 4 from us and 2 from neighbor, usually sounds like a war around us, but was very quiet. Coming thru the pasture around 11:00 this morning we were corning the roads and one of our tame does come running towards the mule to get a handout and had a nice, heavy 16 inch, 8 point with her that would not leave. He was very nervous but did not leave his love lady. Buck came within 25 yards of the Mule, while we hand fed the doe Fritos, also her nickname. Did not go out this evening, had to take the nephew back to Royse City. Congrats on the Nice 8 point, Steve. Good luck to the rest of the Freestone area hunters.

Brother-in-law got an unusual 13pt off my place this morning. We’re still seeing rutting activity . Will post pic if I can get it to load.

We’ve seen more bucks than doe until this weekend. The bucks are moving and the does are being pushed.

I will be out this Saturday, NE wind forecasted hurts my best spot but afternoon suppose to switch to E SE, which is doable. Hopefully this changes tomorrow night.

I have an 8 and 7 both really wide bucks I'm after and a 3.5 old typical 10 with kickers that I want too pass on. I will probably see him 15 yards broadside.

Good luck to you this weekend. I'm headed down to our place near Oakwood after work today for the weekend. Hoping this cold front stirs some movement.

Its been horrible slow in Navarro the last week plus, I really figured it would get crazy this weekend with the rut approaching and this heavy cold front. Hoping it gets better this week.
