Made the trip to the SW corner of Young County this week end. The deer just did not cooperate at all. The camera says they are hitting the feeder between 12-0200 and again around 5. They don't stay long almost like a hit and run. Did get to see a couple of young bucks and then late Saturday evening this buck showed up but he stayed at around 150 yards in the tree line. Had some Pics of him and I was glad to see him in person even if it was at a distance. Here's a couple of pics from this past week. Hopefully he sticks around.

Rebel, good buck there...Think I'm out pretty close to you near Murray and Murray Circle Rd...You're out by Miller Bend Rd., right? The tall racks are pretty prevalent out our way from my 8 years of being out there, unfortunately so is lots of the nocturnal activity. Try rattling if you haven't already done so, it's worked for me before out there..Good luck and some of us need to get together for some lunch maybe at Hole n the Wall some weekend coming up...

I rattled... I grunted and he just wasn't budging from the trees. He is by far the biggest deer we have pics of. We have several pics of young 8's that are legal but they will get a pass. I'm right off 209 from 3109. I wont be able to go back to the lease for another two weeks, but I'm always up for lunch. I like the café in Eliasville.

I hunt the Jack/Young county line. I saw very little movement this past weekend. Hope I am not missing the rut but who knows. That is a very nice buck I hope you tag him, I just wish I could see one like that (even on camera) at my lease.

I used to hunt out that way right on the Young/Throckmorton county line a little east of Woodson.

Bucks like that really hang tight to the post oaks and bull mesquite thickets. I had the best luck rattling, and hunting tree stands off major travel routes in the bull mesquite and sitting up against the trunk of a post oak off trails that were used to feed on the white oak acorns which they love.

It's very rare after the season starts they will come to the feeders in day light.

That was a great lease. Lots of memories from that place up

RAB, don't you know...The great tease, a good number of really good bucks on cameras, largely at night...Rattling for me has paid off in the past but they have to be in the "fighting" mode for it to pay dividends. Have to believe a lot of places within 2 hours or so of metromess also deal with the "nocturnal" issues as well. More hunting pressure tends to do that to animals.
