yep, there are some decent deer around Ft. Hood, especially now that they have tightened the reins on how it's hunted. We used to ride dirt bikes all over the place back in the 60s, 70s, 80s, until they shut it down. Saw some decent deer back then riding dirt bikes and jumping them out of the brush when very few people even knew anything about management of the herd. I have a friend that used to do nothing but public hunting and hit Ft. Hood a number of times but that's likely been 10-15 years ago now, but he took a couple of pretty nice 8-10 point mature deer (guessing in the 110-130 class) and a number of does. Used to be check in at HQ a couple hours before daylight, they would take you out and put you in a stand, then come back and pick you up. Not sure what the rules are now.
