Looking at a lease in young county near Newcastle and about 4-600 yards away from the Brazos river. Property has a ton of deer sign and some hog sign with no hunting taken place on the property for the last many years according to the owners family member who is in charge of the lease. Certainly no areas where feeders or blinds had been set up. Surrounding properties are not hunted much at all, according to same family member so there might not be much hunting pressure either.

Just wondering what your experiences have been in this neck of the woods and what type of deer I could expect to see on a low fence place.

Thanks!

East or west of Newcastle? That area is heavily hunted to my knowledge. But there are nice bucks around. Get feeders going ASAP.

River bottoms always hold a lot of deer regardless of the pressure. Betting lots of nocturnal activity but some darn good deer in that area. Good luck !

Could be very good depending on if you have enough land to provide bedding area, enough browse, water. Hunting pressure is high. Small properties abound. If they border your place, that's generally problematic is this area. Properties that don't have these issues have very good hunting in the area.

I have been told the surrounding properties don't hunt, and this property has not been hunted in years.
Time will tell I guess, but given the deer sign on the property this could be really good. Gotta get some feeders and stuff set up as soon as possible.

Buckeye, pretty consistent with all of Young county. Some very good ones and good potential throughout the county just a very good bit of hunting pressure. Deer tend to go nocturnal early in season especially if hunting around a good amount of hunting pressure. The Brazos should serve as a game pipeline for you. Take up bow if you don't already do so and get plenty of time in during early rifle season and rut..

We hunted outside of New Castle two seasons. Too many poachers.

^^^ Agreed! We were on a place a few years back west of Newcastle and not far from the river. Just a few hundred yards, too. Lots of turkey and some hogs, plenty of shooters at night. We were told there was no hunting in a long time, not much pressure around, etc., but it was all a bunch of lies. It went through an agent though that everyone now knows has a terrible reputation. If you're dealing with a landowner directly you're doing it right.

Place is like the Wild West of Poaching and a Disaster...
Good Luck to you and I hope you experience different

Just out of curiosity, how did you know you were poached or knew of poaching going on? Tire tracks? Game cam pics?

The ranch owner lives at the only entrance to the property we're on now so I'm not worried about it. Nowhere near Young Co tho...

Little known fact. The town of Newcastle has more poachers per capita than anywhere in Africa!

Not to mention, many people hunt the river bottom out there.
