My dad and I just got offered a small lease last minute just north of bonham. A friend of ours has been hunting the other half of the property for quite awhile and has got at least a deer or two nearly every year. I was just wondering if anyone else hunts in that area, and if so how's the hunting for yall and how's the quality?

I was raised here and spent many of years tromping through these woods. I have hunted the Caddo land for the last 20 years and have never taken a buck bigger than 120" but have seen a few. The new antler restriction is starting to show results with more quality deer, but you have to find them. I now hunt the southern part of the county and county to the east. The numbers are a lot less but the quality can be better...
It's like any other county in north Texas, hit or miss. X property can hold great deer but property Y, 2 miles away could hold nothing. Yes, Fannin county has produced a few nice bucks over the last few years, but I've talked to A LOT of people that have struggled that always do good....

It's getting worse every year... too many animals taken in a low density environment...

I leased land in Lamasco near Bonham. VERY FEW DEERS. Might see more hogs than deers. Definitely lots of varmints I can guarantee you.

I hunt north of Bonham and the deer population is low but there are big deer out there. A couple years back I shot a 145" 11 point and my cousin has taken some good deer this past year. The big ones are there but you won't see them much
