Hello all, I'm in the planning stage for a Mule deer hunt at Lake Meredith. This will be my first time hunting public land. I've been acquiring gear, and doing a ton of online research, map scouting, etc. I'd like to talk to someone who's been there and who wouldn't mind corresponding via email, phone or text and maybe answer some questions. Not looking for anyone's spots, just some general questions about the area, what to expect for weather, water sourcing, things of that nature. I've been eyeing the devils canyon trail as a starting point. I have the map of the hunt area from the park, but its pretty general. Thanks in advance!

I have hunted Meredith for both WT and Mule Deer. Itís rough and not for the average with rough terrain and having to cover lots of ground on foot or horseback. A river runs down the middle and small water holes here and there. Start high and glass. You will find yourself glasig and moving a lot as the Bucks are hard to find. Plenty of Doe and Spike. Devils Canyon is not a bad spot to start. Their is a Facebook page for Lake Meredith Hunting where you will find lots of help and information if needed.

Thanks for the reply. How was the hunting pressure when you were there?

Whitetail you will find orange every 5í. Mule not so bad but understand that is the hunting location for so many. Best advice I can give is do your best to stay away from weekend hunting. The weekend brings a war zone to that place and it gets pretty bad.

Ok, I kind of figured as much. Planning to get there on a Wednesday and stay through Sunday.

Thatís a good choice of days and you will need most to scout.
