We had a large lease in that area for years... We had tons of luck with dove in the area but the deer population was very small.

when I was out there about 5 years ago, hogs where plentiful. Deer where more scattered, turkey population was great, small quail population on the lease we had.

Probably more hogs then anything we moved off a lease because we couldn't keep them in check and they ran all the deer off.

I hunted Mulberry Canyon about 4-5 years ago. Shot 17 hogs and a couple doe. Bucks were there, but didn't find any I wanted to shoot. Lots of hogs if you have any water.

Was able to get on a small lease (160acres) but never hunted this area. Lots of signs but not hearing great things about deer hunting-so far that is. Jumped on the lease for it being year round, maybe can get a variety of action for the kids; hogs, predator hunting, MAYBE turkey, so if it produces a deer or 3, bonus.

I took this one south of Merkel. Nice 6 point cull.



The deer population was small, but the dove and hog hunting more than made up for it.

Had a lease just south of Merkel for a year. Pretty much the same as everyone else ... lots of hogs and turkey. Deer weren't near as plentiful. Lease was cheap and a good group of guys, Just with there were more deer in the area.
