I hunted yesterday and today from 6am to 1pm - Fair amount of movement, but didn't see any big bucks. I've got pics of some big bucks showing up mid-day Tues & Wed of this week.

I also watched some small bucks chase after a doe that had a yearling and she wasn't ready, so it's getting close.

I watched a group of does saturday eve and nothing bothered them. My buddy on the same placed watched does get ran around by young bucks. Sunday morning I had two young bucks get into a sparring match. The sound must have got the attention of an 8pt and he came running in to check it out. I ended up dropping him.

I hope to get up there later in the week......deer have been slow on the feeders. Pigs are THICK. The guys that hunted this past weekend said there was very little activity...I plan to hunt from a tree in the thick stuff so we will see how it goes.

Default Any Grayson or Cooke county reports??

Saw some pics of a guy that shot a young 8 with a lot of potential that we’d been watching/passing. It’s beginning to get tough to grow bucks in Grayson. The Buck was 2.5-3.5 and maybe scored 110. Not sure why people are bow hunting Grayson if that’s their goals. Sad to see.

Buck sent me this update this morning. 🤣
Acorns are super thick right now. Second drop started the last week of October. It’ll dry up in about another week. We’ve got 3 nice guys on this property but they’ll all get a pass this year. With all the rain we expect acorns deep into winter.

At the grayson/denton line, found one buck that had a doe bedded and had her locked down. Walked up to probably 15 yards before they both stood up. She ran maybe 30 yards and immediately bedded, him the same. He wouldn't let me come near her.

Decent buck was ran over on 377 north out of Whitesboro Sunday night. Also on Sunday night, my son took his first deer ever, in Grayson at 12 yards! Nice 8 with matching G2 kickers! Buck came in grunting, stomping and checking the ladies, neck swollen and all! Stinking to High Heaven! Boys are getting ready, ladies are a different story!

Those are some good looking deer gents. Congrats to your boy. I'm not seeing anything on the camera, I'm hoping it's Due to the acorns and pecans on the ground. Think that's about done hopefully

I sat last night. Had a Doe come in with a 3.5YO 8 in tow. He remained about 60yards from her at all times just observing. I think the Does are getting pretty close to being ready. Historically speaking in our area, we are about a week away from the magical time of year when the big bucks do their thing.

I saw three bucks chasing a doe last Sunday at 1:00 PM. The first buck was right on her tail and was a pretty good sized buck. The other two bucks were smaller and came down the same trail 5 and 10 minutes later so she was laying a pretty good scent trail.

All three bucks were grunting like crazy.

I've ran 6 trail cameras on this property for three years. I gathered all of my daytime shooter buck pics over the past three seasons and my data is telling me that 11/9 through 11/13 is hot for daytime buck movement.

I will be on stand starting tomorrow for 6 straight days. I hope my data pays off.

Grayson,

My data shows another peak from 11/27 through 12/5 as well. I just could not ignore all of the daytime pics of shooter bucks between 11/9 through 11/13.

The gap between these two sets of dates I get almost no daytime pics of shooters.

The magic has begun at our spot in SE Grayson. The big boys are starting to get more and more daylight active and venture further from sanctuaries. Including the big buck we've aptly named Animal. Once he breaks his sanctuary you always know the time is upon us. So, looks like I'll be sitting in the wind/mist tonight. Should be reallll fun. LOL!

I sat from 6am to 2pm and it was cold! Had a 4 to 5 yr old buck come through around 9:30am and a group of does show up around noon.

Past two years I've had big bucks show up on the 14th, so going to roll the dice again tomorrow.

Sat from 6am to 2pm - lots of movement in the morning from 8am to 10am. All the doe’s still had their yearling fawns with them. Large resident buck came in once to check them out and then left.
