If you were to consider for deer hunting in NW TX, not considering anything further west of Aspermont or south of McCullouch. I'm thinking best deer densities, quality of bucks, lower amounts of hunting pressure, shorter(relative) distance to metromess and obviously cost..

I do realize this is not a "clearcut" question or answer to it, just more gauging the opinions of the THF. Obviously, properties within counties can vary based on topography, management programs in place, surrounding pressure, etc.etc.; just trying to gauge the opinions of the THF based on "avg" senses based on having seen/heard or read hunting studies/successes, etc. Thinking this can get fun. For starters, I'll throw out Shackleford county, have heard/read/seen quite a bit of deer hunting success out of that county.

Fisher and Borden come to mind. Deer numbers are lower but they kill some toads, Just my opinion

You can find really good deer in just about any county in that large area. How you define "good deer" will factor in also. Size of ranch, location of ranch, hunting pressure around that ranch, your preferred hunting style and management on that ranch all factor into how good it is or can be. I have hunted in McCulloch, Stonewall and Kent counties. I really like the looks of King County around Gutherie, Wheeler County, Childress County, Randall County and Hemphill County. I have not hunted around Canadian Texas but just from travelling through there the last 3 yrs it is a very intriguing looking area. I would really like to hunt there at least once along the Canadian River.

Ranch, I think I meant more NW Texas (Cross Timbers area), no further west than Aspermont and no further south than McCulloch.

Gutherie is just a little due north of Aspermont. You did not say anything about north in your post. The Panhandle area is more NW Texas to me.

Knox and Baylor counties offer some great hunting and there are some giants in the right places.
