Haven't seen many people talking about good ole Jack county so I figured I better get things started.

Im hunting north of Jacksboro about 5 miles.

Opening weekend was very slow. Saw no rut activity and I think there must be a bunch of acorns because not many deer at feeders either. Moon didn't help. Hoping for better results this weekend.

There was a lot of movement on our place off 1191 South of Bryson Sunday morning. I had a legal buck at my feeder when I got into my stand. After he left a doe came out. Both of these deer were either at the feeder or corn I threw onto the road around it.

Then about 7:30am I shot a big old 10 point that I've posted on another thread. My lease mate jumped 2 or 3 deer at his stand - a doe and another buck.

After getting my truck and pulling up to dress the deer I jumped several more that had come in to my feeder while I was tracking my buck and retrieving the truck.

I also have a place in Young County off of Hwy 16 north of Loving. There it's like someone turned the spigot off. I'm still seeing bucks but they and the doe aren't really coming to the feeders. I used to average 600+ photos on my cameras in a 2 week period. The last 2 weeks, that dropped to 150 photos per camera. Corn is stacking up under my feeders. There is a bumper crop of acorns there this year and the deer are feeding on that. Hopefully these rains will sour the acorns.

Jermyn area was slow opening weekend. I also had deer at feeders regularly since April until a week or two before general rifle opened up. The rut should override abundant forb/forage soon enough.

I'm 7 mi NW of Jacksboro. We saw a couple of spikes and 4 doe. My wife saw her first almost legal buck from a stand. They are scraping on our place and eating mostly acorns right now but that 2 yr old buck was in there with a doe and completely left her alone, just stood around eating acorns. Does are still bunched up with as many as 8 on some of the trail cams. I created a mock scrap last week by going to an old scrape location scratching it out and using my own urine to get it started. They were hitting it and created another one just up the trail from it. Something I learned here on THF.

Sat in the stand yesterday evening and saw two doe that had little interest in the feeder. They finally made it in right at dark. Feed store owner in town said everyone is saying lots of acorns. Looks like we might need the rut to start seeing some big boys. I hunted opening weekend and now one evening this week and am yet to see a deer antler. Funny thing this hunting. Lots of good bucks on camera. They will be back. rifle

If possible lets try and keep all the Jack County stuff on one thread so we don't miss anything. Good luck to everyone this weekend. Full Moon!

Sat out all day yesterday. About 8am I saw two bucks chasing a doe, bigger buck chased off scrub buck and was working that doe like he was a quarter horse. I didn't get a chance to glass him before they disappeared behind me. Just before dark I saw a nice young buck just a pissing all over himself, stomping and thrashing a little mesquite with his headwear. Definite uptick in day light movement.

We saw some chasing(young bucks) last weekend and like everyone else, not our usual numbers at the feeders. Lots of acorns but 2+ inches of rain should have taken care of that for now.

I did hunt opening weekend and saw one small buck, a button buck and three doe that morning. That afternoon, I saw 16 deer, all but one was a small buck (different from the one earlier in the day). I am going this Tuesday and hope to hunt and be on stand most of the day.

Okay I hunted Friday evening and Saturday of this past weekend and although I didn't see much on Friday evening or saturday morning while driving back in from the Sat morn hunt about 10am I was opening a gate to go through when a doe popped out about 40 yds down the road in front of me. I knew she must be being pushed to show herself when I had just driven up in the loud diesel mule. Sure enough she crosses the opening and there he is. A mature 7 point right behind her. Nice rack just looks like he is missing a g3 on his left side. Probably a good management buck.

Things are heating up. Interested to see what this cold front does.
