I hunted for many years in neighboring Scurry county. It was great before the drought in 2011. Then we went from Sep 15 2010 to Oct 6 2011 with zero rain - not even one drop. We lost all of the quail and about 2/3 of the whitetail. We only had the occasional mule deer on the ranch I hunted, so I can't really comment on those. I moved on after the 2012 season but I do stay in touch with several friends that are still on that lease. The quail finally came back in 2016 with really good numbers and the whitetails are almost back. 2017 saw another hit to the quail. Not sure what happened, but it took out a large percentage of the population across the whole region. Varmints and hogs were too plentiful for my tastes, but they did provide excellent targets if you got bored. Dove was either great or non-existent, depending on when the migrations came through. In that country, you really need to watch the number of acres per hunter. We had 7000 acres and 10 hunters, although there were actually only 5 or 6 of us that really hunted much. The others just liked to sit around the fire and drink whiskey. I wouldn't hunt more than 1 hunter per section. Make sure you have a good drought proof water supply. If there's wheat on the place or nearby, it will be a huge deer magnet. If the nearest wheat is a mile or two away, get ready to see most of the deer head that way when it comes in. You'll still have some coming to feeders, but wheat is king in that country.
