Good day. I was hoping if anyone has hunted the hills 5 miles south of Concan Tx. off hwy 127. If so can tell me about the deer if the hunting is good or not? Just dropped a couple feeders and was hoping hard work will pay off? Thanks.

Hunting is good for WT and Axis. That's a transition area from cedar country to south Texas brush. Lots of deer with a chance for a dandy.

The terrain is like that on the property. At the bottom a lot of cedar that starts to change over to brush up the hill.

Feeder to the southwest of your stand. The winds down there blow from southwest MOST of the time. When a norther blows in it's from the northwest, so feeder should be SW of your stand. If it's possible to get elevation to your stand, so much the better.

On 21 acres, would put only one stand in the center of the property. Prevailing winds at Concan are from the southeast.
Adios,
Gary

Gary would know. Hey Gary, you still have your place in Menard?

I hunt on the same road, have since 1986. The hunting has always been poor at best. That whole area was broke up into 50 & 25 acre plots & in return has been hunted out for a long time now. Ever since they broke up the old Concan ranch. Out of 27 years we have killed less than 5 does & those were over 15 years ago, and we still have very few deer. Surrounding neighbors will shoot what is legal. We are on 120 ac & as much as I've tried its just not enough to manage. Water, foodplot, protein & corn. They have it all. I still let anything thats not mature walk on by, knowing it probably wont make it, but I cant help hoping that maybe that was the one pass he needed to make it to manhood! Anyway, Its kind of a sore subject for me. I love it out there.

Bwool. Thanks for the post. So the deer stay away from that area? What about up high in the hills? It seems all the deer are closer toward Concan? How far in on Mesa Verde Dr. are you?

No, its not that they stay away, there's just not near as many as there are if you drive 5 mins in any direction. That land typically holds a lot of deer, but in that little area they have been thinned out over the years. There are some, but nothing like should be there. That is a 5 deer county, which means hi density, but not in our valley! I've seen 6 hunters on 30 acres out there. If its brown its down! Its hard to do any managing with that going on. If they were given a chance they could bounce back. We need to get what few does we have on fertility meds. I'm down toward the end of the road. How for down are you?

I'm about half a mile in across from GW Ranch. I'm always in on helping the deer grow around us. The fertilizer pills you talk about where do you get them from and do you put them in a feeder? Have you ever seen any exotics in the hills? Thanks.
