If you have highway or blacktop frontage on your property, you will have poaching. It's almost a way of life in that part of the country and much of east texas. There used to be good deer there but with all the oil rigs going in, landscape changing, etc... I'm not sure anymore. The Richland Chambers area in Freestone County has some big deer IF you can find a place to hunt and IF you put lots of time in scouting. Bow hunting is best.

The rut is going on there about now. Bow season is the best time to hunt.

Never had anything come up missing other hogs taken out of trap. I'm sure they shot a few deer and hogs I didn't find other than that few issues.

Game warden was very helpful with my poachers. Gave him key to gate and problem went away.

Sounds great! Thanks for the replies again.
If I'm reading the book right, we are allowed to take does only during Thanksgiving weekend without the need of a MLD permit correct?
Also a very important question. ...suggestions on good places to eat in the area? Lol
thanks again

Agreed. I've only eaten in Fairfield but I'm a big fan of Sam's also, especially for breakfast. Gilberto's in Fairfield is pretty good as well. Ponte's Diner is decent from what I remember, but if you go there make sure to get a chocolate milkshake. You'll thank me later. grin

From what I remember on the does, I believe you are correct. We are MLD so I just briefly read it and didn't pay real close attention.
