I hunted in Llano county for over 20 years. It always seemed as though the week AFTER Thanksgiving all of the bucks were gone. They didn't 'come back' until about the second week of December.
As we got our herd into more acceptable numbers, we all noticed the bucks chasing hard the week prior to Thanksgiving. It would start opening weekend or the end of October with the does having NO interest in the bucks until that 2nd week of November to the end of the first week of December.
Pay it forward - Kids are the future.
Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.
