Anyone interested in doing a Mills County post like a couple years ago?

I hunted Mills again last year in Mullin after being in Priddy in 2012=2014.
Took a decent 10 last year, hoping for a better year this year.

I just saw this post. I started another mills county post. I was wondering from guys that hunt that area how are the deer numbers and size down there. We are going today to look and possibly sign a lease just west and north of Goldthwaite. Any info helps!

I would expect you to have good numbers but some of that will depend on hunting pressure and cover. We're southeast of town and we're covered up. Antlers will be smaller this year with the dry conditions but most mature bucks will go 120-130 with the lucky hunter seeing something above 140. Does will dress in the 55-70 range, mature bucks mostly in the 100-125lb range depending on food. There have been some that break 150lbs living near ag fields or protein feeders their whole lives. If you hunt feeders and have acorns, a good thing to do is use road corn if they stop coming to the feeders. Good luck!

Neighbors have a ranch just west of Cranfills Gap, there are pretty good deer numbers there and very little hunting pressure.

My family and I hunt near Caradan on FM 575. We feed protein or corn year round and have an oat field. Iíve got 5-6 bucks frequenting protein every night. 3 are easily legal, one is a solid 10, and another is looking to be about an 18Ē wide 9 point. I run cellular camera(s) and batteries died a week ago, thanks to 50-75 photos a night and 30-40 photos a day in daylight. Iím just waiting for the season to start and all my regular bucks vanish and a new set will venture in. Happens every year. Had a very young 12 point on camera last year every day until the last week of October...and then never seen again except by a local rancher who spotted him in December in another pasture.

Weíve had the place for 11 years now. Biggest buck killed was a 146Ē 10 point. Weíve had some 8 points flirting with 130Ē. I donít weigh my deer after kill so I canít speak for live weights. Not uncommon to see 30-40 deer per hunt thanks to our oat field. About 15 acres of it is not grazed by livestock for hunting purposes only. Thereís about 40 more acres that are grazed.

Bring on the rain and dang it I donít like our new western horizon objects, wind mills. Those blinking red lights at night sure do mess up the feel of being in the ďcountry.Ē
