I hunted deer back in AZ when I was in high school, but only ever shot does. It was just a rule my stepdad had at the time on our property. Well, due to school, work and location (CA) I hadn't hunted deer for over 20 years. That changed last January when a buddy invited me to come hunting with him on his property. Took a nice doe & filled the freezer, but it ignited the desire to hunt again. This summer, my buddy and I got a lease in Runnels County. Great deal, 800 acres and only the 2 of us are on it. We are paying a bit extra for this season, but will probably bring on a few more hunters next year based on our results this year. It's a bit of a haul from San Antonio, but I enjoy getting completely away, and my cell phone barely works out there, so I don't get nagged by work or the misses. We don't have the huge racks I see on some of the pictures here, but they are decent.

Anyways, I took my son up with me opening weekend and he connected on a nice 7pt for his first deer. That weekend was for him to learn a few things, so I didn't even pull the trigger. This past weekend, I went back with a few buddies. Saturday morning saw a small spike and a doe at out #5 feeder that I thought would be busy. Then with the wind on Saturday night, a complete bust. Went to our #1 feeder on Sunday morning. Saw a young 8pt come in and thought about it, but decided to wait. Then this guy came out and I knew he was on of the bigger ones we had seen on the cameras, so I took the shot. Clean through, dropped in his tracks.

I really don't do this for a trophy, I do it for the meat. That being said, I am pretty proud to have finally taken my first buck.

Congrats on your first buck! There are some big bucks in that county trust me. Take lots of does and let the 3 year olds walk and you will have some big ones in 2-3 years.

Congrats. That's hunting! I am in east Texas. We have 175 acres and that would be a nice deer over here. I too like to eat venison. If I was horn hunting I would be south. This is just a fun place to go and bring kids and grand kids.
