I see a lot of topics all over TX, but not a lot on South TX. So I figured I would start one to keep track with South Texas (south of I-10 to the border of Mexico).

How's it looking? I'm headed down this Thursday-Sunday, hoping that my roads have dried up, 2 weeks ago the 4 wheeler barely made it to the stand and I scared all the deer off with the ATV. I hear there is a bit of a pre rut going on or some seeking and chasing?

Any updates? Did we get much rain down there since 2 weeks ago? Please post your county with your report/update.

Thanks!

I'll be going down to cotulla this weekend hope to see them chasing. Not sure what's going on down there since I haven't been back since opening weekend. Anybody know if the rut is in full swing?

Frio county is not in the rut yet. We are seeing a little activity with some bucks doing a little chasing. They are mostly interested in the corn and oats though. That will change shortly. I have only seen one buck with a busted point so far, I'm sure that will change too.

I hunted Carrizo Springs this past week and saw that the young bucks are chasing, but the doe aren't interested. Bucks are in bachelor groups, going to hunt all week after Christmas, I think that will be prime time!

Hunt Duval Co.

Have seen very minimal interest in the ladies. A spike here or there will chase a doe around a sec but then back to eating.

Few of the bucks have been seen sparing. Bachelor groups have not completely broken up but are beginning to. Have noticed a few busted tines. Would expect the rut to start in a week and really pick up in a 2-3 weeks.
