With many on here saying how slow the deer season has been for them, deer sightings way down due to acorns, Chupacabras or maybe the dreaded fenceline hunters thought it'd be interesting to know where the counties of better hunting has bee.

If like to participate, please identify your hunting county and on avg. how many deer, does/bucks you may see per sitting as well as acreage size. Not a scientific census just something to have fun with late in season. Cheers!

Henderson County. About 70 percent wooded. 400 acres. See two deer per sit. Mostly doe. Mix in a hog every third sit. Saw one bobcat this year.

But shot zero. Which is what I usually do. I shot a nice sow to process last week.

My 75 is mostly mesquite flat pasture with mid level brush encircling it.

Hunting in eastern Erath. It's not unusual to sit 2-3 times without seeing a deer. Then see 5-6 next time out. I've already documented 21 different bucks spotted from stands on 300 acres. New stand on the high fence has been the best on the ranch. Deer on both sides are very social with each other. Pretty cool to watch them rub noses and sniff each other. Very similar to dogs. Have 4-5 different flocks of turkey that are fun to watch. We've killed 5 hogs since opening weekend. All in all, a very good year. Seen A few legal bucks. Missed a wide buck early on. Still haven't seen one as nice as him.

Western Lee county near the Bastrop/Lee county line. Usually see at least 8-10 does and one or two bucks per sit. The most I've seen was 18 does, 2 bucks and 16 hogs in the food plot at one time. I've seen 2 pretty nice bucks all season and they got a pass.

Loc: Bexar/Gillespie, hunt Terrell
Terrell county. 10,000 acres high fence (pen) with lots of holes, no protein, and 12 (seasonal) corn feeders. 8 to 10 deer per sit. 1/2 bucks. Higher than average rainfall and we've seen the results in antlers. Shot some good bucks and now there's a 150+ ten, plus 3 or 4 kickers on him (that I first spotted on camera), that supposed to be "hands off" until after 2018 rut. Everyone's all "a twitter". (Of course, the "manager" that declared "hands off" will be elbowing the rest of us outa the way next Christmas to get at him!) BUT, we're all in agreement and we're trying to improve the place. We shall see.

'Be out there later this week to get a friend on a buck. I'm gonna try like crazy to hold off shooting much of anything until this time next year. (I think next year's season will go until Jan. 6th, 2019.) Cool.

Eastland and Stephens county ranch - 3100 acres LF but bordered on southwest by HF. Not too many bucks taken and only one was a nice 11 point. Have seen many young 8's and even a 10 that looked to be only 3.5 years. I did take a nice fat 140# doe, a 2.5 year spike (saw him last year and let him walk hoping he would sprout out) and a pig. Will be out again next weekend to see if the 12 I've seen on camera makes a mistake, otherwise will the fill the other doe tag and hopefully another pig.

Loc: San Saba
San Saba county, low fence 165 acres. Not a single flat area on the place, constant hills and draws. Good habitat with tons of oaks. Low hunting pressure on surrounding properties.

I'll say I average 5-6 per sit but that depends on which area I hunt. The most productive spot averaged twice that amount if I corned the road. Most I had in front of me at once was 19. Pretty even ratio now of bucks to doe. Still working on age class but I've been taking the older lower scoring bucks to let the good young ones grow.
