Here in DeWitt County nothing. I got up and there was dense fog and temp was in the mid-70s. Being retired and living on the ranch, I decided to enjoy my two cups of coffee on the porch rather in a stand. As of 8:47, not a single shot heard close in or distant. I did see three does about 70 yards out but none of the four 3-year-olds 8 pts that call my extended yard home.

It was 92į at 4pm yesterday. Not too crazy about crawling into my black tower blinds this afternoon either.

Its hot and humid here in Montgomery county. Haven't seen anything except birds and squirrels. Haven't heard a single shot and we border the national forest!

Warm here in San Saba county. Seen one deer when I walked in to bow hunt yesterday afternoon. Have only heard 6-8 shots this am, a cpl close and a cpl off in the distance. Have a spike under feeder now, he's the only deer I've seen this am and he didn't show up til 0850

That is how to do it. Heard some really close but didn't see them. Through 9:00 in DeWitt County, not a single gunshot heard, close in or distant. Got work to do.

Slow here in Palo Pinto county, had a young 8 and a spike come in chasing a doe. Other than that nothing, I didn't have much confidence this morning walking to the blind under a full moon crunching acorns every step of the way. I have only heard 2 gunshots so far, I usually hear a lot more here on opening day.

Slow in Eastland. 6 very young bucks and a doe/fawn. A little cloud cover this morning but bright. Wind starting to pick up. Time for a nap and a long afternoon sit. Hopefully the bigger ones make an appearance this evening.

Was 55 degrees in Jack County @ 5am. Watched a spike at 6am with the moonlight. Had a young 8 grunting up a storm chasing 2 does for about 10 minutes. Cool thing was they were 15 yards from me. I have 2 10pts on camera pretty regular, one is mature while the other might be 3. They are very similar horn wise. Had one of them walk right in front of me with nose down at 930. I put the scope on him but he never stopped, I couldn't tell for sure which one he was until it was too late, he made it into the woods and never came back out. Just got back for a couple beers, a snack, then headed back out.

Archer county - more chilly this mornin than I expected.

Had a big body buck hitting the protein for quite a while, but left shortly before shooting light. Never got a good look at his head gear but he is definitely on the cam (didn't pull the card).

Big boar came in right after feeder went off and busted him. Hopped down to drag him off a ways but didn't make it too far, was a pretty big boy, 200+.

Several doe, 2 button heads (think they are twins) and a young 8 came through once I got back in blind.

Overall, pretty good activity, but no sign of the big ones after sunup

Dallas County ó up at dawn, got the kids to volleyball, stopped by a 4 year olds bday party for some face painting. Cleaned my study. Helped my 14 year old with some math homework.

Pretty nice little Saturday. Going to Home Depot, maybe a little bed bath and beyond. I donít know if Iíll have enough time.

At least Iíll be headed to West Tex for 4 days next week

Leon County. Overcast with breeze blowing out of the south this morning. Saw three doe out of range, and a spike that I didn't want in range. Heard single shots fired to the north, to the east and and to the west. No sign of the gorgeous 8-point I saw posing for the game cam two nights ago. May be someone else took this morning, but I'm kinda doubting it. Will probably let my son take a doe this evening.

Eastern Erath county here. Slept late. Got to stand at 0800. Immediately started seeing young bucks following a doe. Rattled a few times and had 3 big bucks come out of the cedars. Neighbors property. My brother and nephew slept in.

Hot as Hades here in Polk county. Have only seen squirrels and crows. Heard 4 shots, 1 from a guy on my lease that apparently missed a doe.
