Hey folks. So here is the deal. I am a novice deer hunter to say the least but i have had the pleasure of hunting with some very experienced hunters/friends in south texas and west texas. I have picked up on a lot. I am a good marksman and comfortable with the basics. Anyway, here is my problem... i have been granted access to a piece of property in lampasas which is about 250 acres and has no hunting history at least in the past 10 years. The owner would prefer i not put up any feeders or fixed structures stands so i am respecting his wishes.
I took a doe the other day for the freezer and to still my trigger finger itch while i sort out this aging of hill country bucks. as of now there are really only two that im considering but wanted some input as to what some seasoned hill country hunters think about these bucks im seeing.
this guy was at the top of my hit list until the below deer showed up.
so first of all are these mature/ shootable deer? and what age are they?
