Great buck! I was thinking yesterday evening would have been a good time to be out hunting. And that background 100% looks like Collingsworth County.

Just to follow up, I was very uncharacteristically late getting to the stand last Thursday morning due to my oversleeping and got to the stand about daybreak. Sat for about an hour and a horse of a muley doe sneaks in and beds down at 20 yards. I watched her lay there for an hour or so and chew her cud, during which I decided I would take her if she gave me a shot when she stood up. Well she did, and I did, and she's now in the freezer.

I talked to my buddy yesterday and we picked up another piece of property in north Collingsworth Co so it looks like I have another PH Tag! He's been getting ready for hunters and glassing the fields, word is it's been stupid for the amount of deer and new bucks showing. Good luck to everyone for the general opener!

Hunted Friday and just does, fawns and a up and comer busted 8. ABSOLUTELY nothing this morning so far. Only heard one shot way off. Very disappointing so far.
Good thing is we are seeing way more does and fawns this year. Hopefully the does will bring in the big bucks!

Lots of animals moving, even with the full moon.

I’m going live now in Garza county. I already used my buck tag so I’m in it for does and pigs. I’m sitting on a stand with tons of old does using it. I would guess you can count on a big buck showing up and camping in front of me. It will suck to be his girlfriend

Young 8 and a very very young 8 plus a buck fawn. Young 8 left to check a doe but came back about 10 minutes later. Good 8 spotted at Denson’ feeder at his field blind but he decided to pass on him. Posted a video of him on FB. Perfect evening but heard not shots. Neighbor said he just saw a button buck! Temps in the mid 70’ tomorrow and Monday��

Nothing moving this morning. 2 does and a yearling at 6:20 but moved on before the feeder went off, nothing since. Low 30’s, no wind, perfect morning but so far deer are a no show. Very frustrating. NO pigs either. Have not seen a pig yet. Not very many on camera either. Overrun with them last year.

A buddy and I were after a management buck this weekend. Hunted Friday evening through this morning and never had ONE buck in bow range. On our ranch they're in the transition period into rubbing, scrapes, etc before rut. They could give a chit less about corn and protein. Had 8 management bucks on camera consistently until about Thursday. We'll try and skim one in December

Slow, slow, slow is all I can say about the Friday before opening weekend thru yesterday morning. Perfect weather. Only positive is we have a lot of does showing up along with numerous buck fawns. Very few does and no fawns last year.

I got up with the full intention of hunting deer Saturday morning. But, as commonly happens for me, on the way out I changed my mind and decided to call coyotes instead. So I headed up north of the river and did that. Called a pair on the first stand and got both. Called another pair on the second stand, killed one and the second got away in the weeds. Third stand called a single and killed it with a 50 yard running shot. Felt pretty good to be putting fur on the ground.

I didn't hear many shots, didn't see many hunters. Got to see my landowner and had a good talk with him too. Got some really good info on some additional spots to take my daughter to shoot a deer. All in all, a very productive morning.

We need some wet weather though to help start laying down some of these weeds. Pastures are thick this year. Hard to see and makes it tough picking spots to call coyotes from. I would say a fella needs to watch any shot deer pretty close too. It is going to be easy to walk right past them. Mr Bonner may get quite a bit of work this year.

Hunted Friday night through Sunday morning outside of McLean and it was slow all weekend accept last half hour of Saturday night, then we had a buck parade go by us. Passed a really nice mature 8 point. Seeing runs and scrapes being made but even the young bucks werenít harassing does yet. Overall slow Movement, but that will all change in a couple weeks.

Weeds amd grass are so tall I don't know how you found a spot to call from unless you were calling giraffes.

All your post are exactly what we are seeing. I have not seen a single pig at our place this season and I have only missed one weekend since bow season started. Doe and fawn numbers are up for us as well. We have started seeing a few more bucks on camera but very few are mature. Im blown away about the pigs though??? We were covered up with them last year.
