Seems we always hear stories about the huge buck that lives in the thicket behind the neighborhood or alongside some shopping center or deer that live in the city limits. Have any of you participated in the hunts put on by some towns to handle deer populations or hunted deer in the stand of trees on the edge of your neighborhood? Seems the best deer I've seen killed the last two years have basically been in town in people's back yards. Think I'm gonna just start putting in for the city hunts in the towns that offer em.

I could hunt with a knife, if I worked it right I could probably lead one right into the shop building, but I have no desire to see the inside of the Lincoln County jail.

Big bucks here on NE side of Lake Grapevine corps property. Too bad they only allow bow hunting over by Denton Creek area on the west side. Saw a really nice 8 last week with a doe. Every bit of 18 inches wide and tall tines.

You guys are mistaken. There aren't any deer around grapevine. None. Move on along now.

You are right., just coyotes, turkey, bobs and the occasional lion. No deer here.

Saw an absolute toad about 6 Thanksgivings ago across from Cowboys driving range off Fairway Drive, Gaylord side of road. He looked to be trailing a doe trotting the treeline. Was able to "meeh him to a standstill", looked to be 10-12 pts., really good mass, width and length. Rough guess on score would have been 140 or so..

My soon and I were at the shooting range in Conroe a couple of years ago, and the range officer called "cease fire" after just a couple of minutes of shooting. A doe and fawn cane out of the woods and walked completely across the shooting range right in front of the 100 yard targets. We all just sat there and watched them cross. The doe and fawn got to the other side, and then trotted through the field, across the road, and back into the woods.

I was staying at a motel in Georgetown a few years back, and stood on the balcony watching six deer grazing right at the edge of the parking lot. I went downstairs to see if I could get a better look and when I walked around the corner, I spooked a six point buck right outside the office. I don't know which of us jumped higher. The motel manager told me the deer came out almost every night. Too bad I didn't have my bow along....

Take a drive through Pecan Plantation in Granbury sometime. I lived there for 15 years and the biggest buck I have ever seen on the hoof almost T-boned my truck in hot pursuit of a doe. 180" 200lb bruiser living on pecans.

I used to live right over behind Trophy Club, between TC and the lake. Good GAWD those (-----) were friggin huge! Every morning I'd leave for work anywhere from 4-7 am and they'd be out on the soccer fields. Some of the best looking bucks I've ever seen. Dang they were just huge!
