Decided to brave the weather yeaterday on a gulf coast public hunt... had a few flyovers but nothing was decoying to us (three much bigger spreads were to our left...) anyways. Got one spoonie at about 40 yards
Killed this buck on a FT Hood guided rifle hunt. I would consider Ft Hood public land bc its open to anyone as long as you go through the process of getting on post license, weapons registration, and area access permit. First pic looks like a bad shot but he was quartering away hard and I no other option except to hit far back and come out by opposite shoulder. Ended up with no gut shot and took out liver and both lungs.

Braved the waves of storms and 30 mph wind on the bay last weekend... saw a few good flocks of redheads but they often went to much bigger spreads to the left of us (four more groups were within a quarter mile to my left) only would up gettong one spoonie, but had lots of fun. Then made smoked gouda jalapeno poppers with the solo duck so everyone could get a bite!

I'm posting these for ScooterG. Looks like he had an awesome hunt! These are the last deer on Matador however. There are none left so there is no reason for anyone to apply in the future. Nothing left but hoot owls and polecats. No need to even put in for it.
