Hello All,

Registered today, after reading and viewing the boards for the last 2 weeks.

Long story short I am on a lease in Nacogdoches county currently. Lots of deer sign as I dropped off supplies today to start my feed pen/cameras on Thursday.

Previous group (which I was with for my first their last year) left. No real loss as it was more of a beer camp than deer camp for them.

Any one in county having any luck with sign/ pics this year? I imagine food plots should be great with all the August rain.

Any pointers would be appreciated too

welcome I am not familiar with your county so I cannot comment there. I would get my feeder set asap if it were me. If you have hogs they will get your corn unless you have a good fenced pen or better yet a pen made from hog panels. Probably will be someone by soon who is familiar with your county.

Willhunt,

Thanks for the reply I have 10 16 ft hog panels for the pen which should give me just under 2000 sq feet. Its just going to be a long day setting it up....driving t-posts..... fun.

Right now I am having to deal with lots of pigs and very few deer. Getting a few does and some fawns but no bucks right now.

Thanks for the heads up.

There were a good amount of tracks at the property on the road in.

8 different crossings within a 400 yard walk in.

One of the bigger ones



Lets hope this one doesn't oink

welcome

If I were you I would hand corn some pinch points/trails and put out a trail cam on that spot first. Especially if your going to build a ten panel pen, (I do that size as well), you wanna make sure it's in a good spot. This part of Texas the deer are finicky about where and how they eat corn, especially from a penned feeder.

See if you can find some white oak trees with good acorns and put a set there. That's where the bucks will be first before they eat corn.

Good luck this season. up

Yes sir did that about 3 weeks ago (after reading about scouting on these forums) Pictures were lost as the SD card is god knows where.

The site is on a wide clearing between 3 year old pine and old growth hardwoods(mostly oak) with a feeder creek running through it.

Thanks for the reply!! I hope to have a new batch of photos in about 2-3 weeks

Just hand corn some spots until the scrapes show up and then switch the cameras over to them...and probably not the ones right around the feeder. You'll pick up what bucks are within range of you throughout the entire season. It won't be uncommon for what you catch on camera now to be several miles away come early Oct and a lot of new bucks move in.

For numbers it's usually in the river bottom borders and out from Nac a ways where the old cotton plantations (now cow pastures) transition to mostly timber land. If you're hunting blocks of timber amongst a lot of pasture land no telling what you can get into quality or number-wise bc of how the limited cover can concentrate them. Too many variables to really know what to expect. What the neighbors do is important too. For instance, if you hunt up against 500ac with 8 families hunting it, it's not going to be the same as hunting up against us where one family hunts, 5yo is the target age and that tends to slip to 6/7yo (or like my inlaws where there's a lot of unhunted acreage that's treated like a petting zoo).


There's also a chance you won't get a deer inside your feed pen.

Will do Rifle i have a few game cams that can hold this purpose.

It is going to be interesting to see how much pressure that area gets during bow/early rifle.

I am not a fan of the whole brown/down,but by the looks of some of the homes in the area i cant fault them for trying to put meat on the table.
