Im in Houston county with a very good deer population ...I'm not sure what's up...I'm getting tons of pics at night but rarely during day. Opening morning I heard 2 shots all morning verses world war 3 in previous years.
It's not hunting pressure as it's just me taking my kids on a few hundred acres and we only hunt a stand that the wind is right.
I saw many deer during bow season as past years but normally mid oct is when bucks start sparring and by end of oct they are chasing doe hard. But this yr like I previously mentioned , I've seen zero chasing and only few bucks cruising through looking for doe. It seems the rut is 2-3 weeks behind here.
Anyhow, it's fixing to turn on heavy , I'm thinking maybe the doe have been laid up hiding from bucks. Just curious if others in east tx is noticing things behind this yr...
Good luck to all ! We've got a lot of season left!
