What happened to the forever long Val Verde County thread?


If ducks had horns I'd probably be a duck hunter.
I am a horrible deer hunter. Probably the worst. Ever.

I'm not finding it either. WTH.

At any rate, hope my fellow Val Verde County hunters are having a good weekend.

I worked yesterday, and it took me to Del Rio. I saw nothing in the back of trucks. Except for two axis deer in the back of a trailer. Not really any deer on the side of the road either, dead, or alive.

One of my hunters has been down for a few days. Seen a lot of young bucks and does, but nothing mature. About par for this time of year. Heck of a lot better than our opening weekend. I will have a handful of hunters in my camp after Thanksgiving. Hopefully someone will knock one down.

Dodgerock where abouts are you?

I drove from San Antonio to Alice then to corpus christi, back to San Antonio today. Saw one axis in the back of a pickup, and that was all. Guess it's slow everywhere.

I heard a decent amount of shots nearby over the weekend, but people weren't going crazy with them. Don't know if anyone got anything or not. I saw lots of fawns and young deer this weekend, along with one old guy I would have taken if I'd ever had a good shot on him (he's been injured for at least three years per game cams, but somehow he's survived). What got me was when I looked at game cam pics Saturday evening, there were 10 deer at one time at a different feeder, including a mature 8 pointer and a buck I'd never seen before. Watched that feeder the next morning and nothing. *sigh*

I want to apologize to those that followed the "How are the deer in Val Verde County" thread since I was the reason it was deleted. I had posted a buck I killed at friends ranch and in the process of getting it deleted the entire thread vanished.

Apparently an ex member of our lease likes to pop off at the mouth to the land owner about deer I post so that was the reasoning behind me deleting.

I'll no longer post my kills, but really look forward to everyone else's deer.


Side Note: Whomever it is that has an issue with the bucks I take can feel free to send me a PM. Be an adult and stop making calls behind my back.

Well just got back form a week out at the ranch and not many of the older deer were moving for us. I saw tons of young 3-4 8 and 10 point's but nothing i wanted to take. They were also not even really chasing yet so i guess the warm weather has keep the older deer locked down. I have also not seen many mature deer on the cameras which is weird based on the last couple of years results. Hoping the weather tuns cold when i go back in 2 weeks.

I was in Kinney County over the weekend and only saw bucks 3.5 and younger, the guys who are on that lease said they haven't seen any mature bucks for this hunting season yet.

It has been a really weird season so far for sure. Lets hope a cold front comes in soon and gets things turned around.

I haven't been down but had hunters at my lease from Friday until today. Lots of deer, mainly young stuff seen over the weekend. The guys that left after today's morning hunt said it was like a switch flipped and they saw a lot of good mature bucks yesterday and this morning. None of the big bucks went to corn, they were all cruising, checking does and hard to get shots off.
