Just got on a deer lease around Johnson City. Have never hunted this area before, and just curious what the deer are like around here. Ive heard good things from locals but wanted to see what you guys thought.

This. I've never seen so many deer in an area. Has to have one of the highest densities in the state.

My little place is west of you in southern Gillespie county. 'Would take a military campaign to wipe out the deer. You'll see plenty. Big racks - not so much.

Make sure to keep your eyes open when driving around there at night.

There good deer taken in the county every year low fence. There was a 182 NT taken in that JC/Stonewall area in 2014 on LF. There was net book typical taken north of F'burg in in 2011 on LF. A couple of 160 class NT taken in the county in 2012 on LF. Several 140 class typical taken in 2013 and 2014 on LF.
I would not call those "small deer" or they sure won't fall into the "many breaking 100"" class either grin It is just like any other county in Texas. It depends on the ranch/lease location and what they neighbors are doing around you.

up Most semi-mature Bucks will break a 100 easy with the majority in to the 120+ range.

STX, how do you come up with these statistics? Not doubting your statement at all. I am always amazed at your knowledge of hunting and ranches regardless of where the ranch location may be. up

I have hunted in between dripping springs and Johnson city since I was 12. Lots of deer few huge deer mainly because it is non ar county( my personal opinion). My dad took a deer last year that scored 101 he was definitely on the bigger side of the deer we see but your game cams will show you a few good ones you just have to be willing to go get them. I will note your neighbors will greatly influence your hunting, friends that are near U.S. Have neighbors that have 6 stands on 25 acres with tons of trash all over the place. On our place majority of bucks are 2 years a few get to 3 years 4 and up is a rarity. We do not feed protein and take 2 or 3 deer a year on about 300 acres. Would not trade it for anything. You could tear it up in bow season for sure.

I've heard of places like that, but, thankfully, never seen one or been near one. Some folks ain't got no sense.
