They are out there, but most of what we have been seeing is does and a few young bucks. Plenty of does, we have already taken a few. If we get a freeze, hopefully we will see some more activity.

No big deer, my nephews shot one doe and saw one buck in the 150s-160s looked to be a straight up 10 point nice buck for our property., but no shot. Going up to hunt a little next week,and the week of thanksgiving. I usually hunt with my brother, but he is stripping cotton ( they have a record crop), so might be hunting solo.

This area has really blossomed. 2011-12 was hard on everything as it was the driest we had seen for some time. (My dad said the 50s were drier overall, but not as hot). When I was in high school if you shot a 140-150 class buck that was world class for the area, now 140s and 150s (while not common) are seen more common. I grew up between Winters and Bronte and my family has owned land there since 1889. I love it..if I could make a living there, I'd live there, but my brother runs the farm and ranch (only can be one chief). Good luck to all the Runnels/Coke/Taylor county hunters.

Just south of Talpa and we have seen a lot of buck movement. Does aren't coming in to feeders. Looks like the rut will be full on by next week!!
