Who hunts live oak county? Just purchased land around Whittsett. Good hunting in area? Illegals? Poachers?

Can be really good or really bad. Too many factors to list

Sold a ranch in lower live oak county, low fence with mid size to large ranches. Everyone is on the same page management wise and it's not uncommon to see 15-20 deer during a sit and they will kill a 160-180" deer every year.

10 miles down the road they won't break 140" and see maybe 2-3 deer a sit.

Wow. I'm in upper Live Oak county I assume. Kind of close to the 74 ranch. Low fence all around.

The 74 is a good place but that really doesn't mean much even if they are your neighbor as they are high fenced. The area can be good but it all boils down to the size of both your place and the neighbors (plus the hunting pressure applied) and the fencing in between.

True that. Yeah it's not neighboring but pretty close. Big ranches around. Is hunting good overall in the whole county?

depends again on your location. I'd rather be west of 37 than east for sure.

is your place brush or old regrowth farmland?

I'm in the middle of three rivers and George West, we've been feeding protein for five years or so and struggle to kill anything over 150. But the last two years we've seen better deer than normal. Pigs have been the main problem.

Average number of deer seen per hunt is around 10, some of the better stands you'll see 25-30. Average buck killed is 140in weighing 200-230. Biggest killed in the past 5 years was a hair over 160. We've seen many bigger on camera every year but never out of a stand.
The property I hunt is brush and mesquite. We have water throughout the property which makes a big difference especially now. I went two weeks ago and there's about 3 inches of dust on the ground, most all ponds are on the verge of being completely dry and probably are by now.

I'm west of 37. On fm 99. The land is all mesquite and a few oaks. Big property on there and we have 2 big ponds on the property. Do y'all have problems with illegals?

That should be some good country.

Good luck this season
