I have seen several great deer the last couple of years. Something is defiantly going on. I guess I owe TPWD an apology for criticizing the AR's.

Same here....hasn't been a deer killed on our East Texas lease YET this season.
Even during the "doe days" and we have some doe killers, including me.
I have an invite to go to Bandera after Christmas and take 2 or 3 whitetail doe instead
of going back to my lease and hoping that a legal buck finally walks out on me.
I think I'm opting for the Bandera doe hunt.
I want venison. All I can get.
Although I also have a chance to go back and hunt the chalk mountain area too
with a fellow THF member and very good friend.
I think they have an extended doe/spike season there.

Pin oak crop is killing us this year. Deer don't have to move to get their groceries.

I personally am not for ARs. I am more for a judgement call from the hunter. But something has happened recently, or at least in my eyes seeing more big deer come from here.

Saying that, I do my meat hunts else where and my doe live a long healthy life until the neighbors pop her.

This year has been a wet year and I guess maybe the foliage has increased antler growth.

I dunno, but seems like this year I have seen more pics of bucks that are in the 140-160 range then I ever remember seeing.

Hope it keeps up, cause I want a real bruiser for the wall

We have some nice bucks on pics too. Mostly all night time pics though....plus I've never seen a recipe
for cooking a pic. grin

I agree.

I also dont agree with not being able to cull what is obviously a not good for management.

But you have to admit, it seems like the herd is improving

I have to agree, RAIN. But it still make's my whatever hurt. I can not even take a doe but with a bow. Does anybody else have the same? I just want some meat in the freezer. Am I just a complainer?

That was me last season. Never saw a buck that would make the 13 inch rule, and only one legal spike. This year has been just the opposite. Spikes, fours and small eights, not to mention two that would have met the rule that I passed up.

You didn't hijack anything. This thread is up for discussing, arguing, yelling. Whatever you heathens want to discuss



IMO the rain is what helped but this warm winter pushed them nocturnal

Thank's East. I'm still not 100% for the AR.
