I'm proud of this one. For those of you that hunt Jack County you know it can be hard to hunt. The before pics show it, they are all night time. I have a place off of 1191 south of Bryson. I didn't see anything opening morning. Saturday evening I saw 3 doe. Then yesterday morning there was a legal buck at the feeder early, but I passed. A doe came by a little later and then around 7:30 I turn my head from my feeder area and this 10 pointer I have had on my cameras is staring at me from 40 yards away. I about mess my pants. He puts his head down and starts walking away. I take the opportunity to get my gun ready and fortunately he stopped to look at the blind again - I have no idea what was going thru his head but it was his last mistake.

I don't know what his age is (old) or score guessing between 120-130. He has good mass. Inside spread was about 18.5 inches, I forgot to measure his beams before taking him in but as you can see they are pretty long. One very long brow tine and one short one. Very neat looking buck to me. He was fat and healthy.

Sunday evening I hunt my place in Young County and darn if I didn't see a 10 pointer there too (no near this big though). I saw him again this morning too. I left him for one of my boys. There is also a 9 pointer at the place in Jack that is as big as this 10 point, hopefully one of them will get a chance at him during the rut.

Nice Jack County buck. There some good bucks over there for sure. We used to hunt there in the 70's and early 80's between Jacksboro and Bryson in the Blue Mountain area. Killed some good deer there.

Great deer, I had a place just south of Bryson off 1191. One deer in 5 years, nothing like that though. The place burned down with the fires 5-6 years ago, I mean every tree and blade of grass.

7a...for all I know I may be on that place. We got this one I think it was 4 years ago from Kerwin Stephens and yep, most of it burned down during the fire. But the pin oaks are coming back. It's had nice deer on it each year, though it's rare to get a chance at one of the mature ones. The bucks there are more nocturnal than I like and don't seem to follow patterns like other places I've hunted. But if you are in the right spot at the right time it can pay off. And of course like anyplace the bucks can get loopy during the rut.
