I have a small window of opportunity to get out there. I will be out there Xmas afternoon and the 26th. Then it's off to Cloudcroft N.M. to play in some snow with my daughters. I'll be at the ranch tomorrow afternoon though.


If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.

Headed out Tuesday through Thursday with the girlfriend then debating on heading back Friday and Saturday with my nephew.

I've already taken a nice mature cull buck but if I were still buck hunting I'd focus on hunting around food sources if the rut is over for your area.

Probably hold off until muzzle loader season, unless I see signs of hogs on my place.

Will be going out Tuesday with my son's new 243. We have only shot one buck after Christmas. Still not going to feeders. He saw a young buck about to go eat and ran to him to scare it off. Then I killed him. Seems they are going to wheat late where I hunt.

Family tradition all the "menfolk" head to the farm after gifts and hunt, while Christmas dinner is prepared. Yeah I know, sexist as hell. But it is a family tradition, whatcha gonna do? Besides my wife and mother wouldn't be caught dead in a deer stand!

And border crossers, too! Had 19 on our place last Christmas day. Headed back down the 28th through Jan 3, but will be hunting 'til the end of February.

Yes, probably Wednesday-Friday. Shot a nice 8-point last year, the day after Christmas.

My theory is that the rut is over, the hunters are gone, deer are getting bulked up for the winter cold, and the bucks get a bit more careless.

My only advice I'd give is to hunt a bit longer than you typically do if you can. Assuming it'll be as cold where you are after Christmas as it will be in my neck of the woods, it should be good. Most of my big bucks I've taken have come late season so its never too late. Good luck!

Tagged out on does and culls. I'm done but I will take my son and daughter if they ask to go.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

I won’t be able to go. Our first child is due Jan 8, and we think she will be here very soon.

She’ll have that baby whether you’re there or not. Might as well go hunting.

Our best hunting is from Christmas through mid-January. Love the late rut and post rut.

Yes, same here. But see some of the best bucks (survivors) of the year during that time period.


They are run-down and back on food sources. Go from being totally nocturnal to traveling some during the daylight hours. I like late season and muzzleloader season.


Spartans ask not...how many, but where!
