Nice bucks and pics. That buck has biting flies getting him. That is a spot on his hind leg where he constantly is licking at them to move them get them off of him.

Hind leg or rump? I see the raw patch on his hip you're talking about. I figured the guy was looking at the long grass stem running up his right hind leg.

Top of the right hip up next to the backbone/upper flank area. Where the hindquarter ends at the backstrap.

Yep stx, the flies have been bad on the cows this year. Never thought about that, like I said many other deer have the same on them.

Pretty common this time of the year to see it. Most never saw that on deer till they started using TC. I have watched deer have so many around them, biting them they would run from a feeder back into the thicker brush just to try to knock some of the flies off. Saw it last year in August in McMullen County. I think that is why so many deer are not seen in the daylight this time of the year...that and the heat. But even if deer are stressed from drought they still do not move much in the daylight when the flies are bad.

Funny thing - I have been hunting Texas for 60 years - we all hope for rain. However some of the best deer I have ever seen taken were during severe drought conditions.

This deer was a 175 inch 9 point - in a year of drought he added 26 inches and went to a 15 point book deer. He liked the protein which IMO was a factor of there being no rain and no browse - so he went to the feed station multiple times per day. Sometimes I wonder if a good drought is not the best thing for a deer season
