It's been going on for the last 3 weeks. We hunt north of G'waite and been down there 3 of the last 4 weekends. Young deer stopping by feeders but acorns are still falling. Even in the heat last weekend they were running does all over the pastures. In-laws live on the place and watched several buck running does below the house.
Yesterday (Sunday) driving 2025 just N of Golthwaite I saw a BIG mature buck hanging 20-30 ft from a doe in a field about 1:30pm. I also saw (5) different groups of does/bucks on 16 between Golthwaite and San Saba feeding in fields midday. FULL RUT!!!
