I’m in Victoria near the Victoria/Jackson county line. Been seeing some good deer but just not the ones we’re after that we’ve seen on camera. I passed up a big (for our area) 9 that would have hit mid 130’s as I have a big 11 on camera I’m after right now.

Hopefully this weather gets them moving some more. I have seen a slight decrease in doe activity compared to years past. Still seeing doe just not in the numbers I’m use to

Nice, we havent seen to many does lately unfortunately. I had a really mature 7 in front of me that I wanted but he was to close to his ears so I didnt tape him. Really tall and thick just not wide. He had a really nice young 11 with him that I hope makes it a few more years.

We are in center of Victoria along the Guadalupe and it has been similar for us. Several decent bucks are coming out later than usual. My youngest shot an 11 pointer last weekend which was injured. It's lower jaw was bloody and the skin was partially retracted with saliva pouring out - Nasty. Regardless, the deer are moving and this cold front should make for some good hunting.

Near nursery, very few does are being seen. A few 8-10 pointers, to young to take. Not much seen

Between Smiley and Westhoff. Had about 32 sits seen 6 different bucks and one doe. 3 old mature bucks two 8' s and split brow 10. I've seen a 150 inch 12 pt 3 year old hoping he can hide out this season. He is going to be a monster if he can live another 2- 3 yrs. a friend down the road about 10 miles killed a 179 opening weekend. Hunting this afternoon and pulled cards and very few deer on camera the past week. I guess they are eating all the green winter grass and not corn.

Its been one of our better season for number of deer seen. Probably close to a 1:1 ratio on the small 100 acres we hunt with quite a bit of neighbor pressure.

Had one of our hunter miss a 130 10pt opening weekend. Have yet to see him back on camera. By far largest buck weve ever seen on this place.

Lots of young bucks so next year is promising if they stick around.

Saw 6 does, four nubbin bucks, pigs, and decent young 8pt Meeting antler restrictions.

LOTS LOTS LOTS of pigs

Normally only had pigs in the dark past four years.

This year weve had pigs in daylight almost every sit.

What’s crazy is we always have lots of young 8,9,10’s that we see every year and then they just disappear the following year. I feel Like every year I’m saying in a few years it’s going to be great lol.

Went and sat from 11:00 until 3:15 when I had to go meet my dad in Hallettsville. Lot of young buck cruising and it was starting to get really good when I had to leave. Scared about 4 different groups of deer on way to the front gate. This evening would have been perfect

We been seeing a bunch! No real monsters but some really nice bucks and plenty of youngsters and does.

Hogs are out of control! Like others have said they are out at all hours of the day. Last night I killed 2 out of 2 separate groups. While I was cleaning them at camp I heard 3 separate groups within a couple hundred yards of camp. Close enough in time that I knew they were separate groups. It's just crazy how many are out there! We are going to have to go to war with them.

Yeah we are on south side town.
Seeing a lot of deer this year. Mostly young bucks and does but some good ones too.
Weve had 3 good bucks killed during bow season, 1 cull and 1 doe last weekend.
Pigs are as thick as the mosquitos were last year

Any updates for the area? Been hot and windy so far this weekend but was lucky enough to get this guy Friday morning around 8:30. Weighed just over 180lbs. Seen some smaller legal bucks but not much else. Wish I could stay and hunt the cold front but have to head back
