We live in Coleman County, a couple of hours NE of Schleicher.
For us, the last quarter of '17 and the first three quarters of '18 were DRY. The country as a whole suffered, surface water dried up, and browse wasn't what it should have been while bucks were developing antlers. This last quarter of '18 has played "catch up" so the annual average rainfall numbers for '18 look fine...but that doesn't tell the whole story, does it? I've seen years like this where antler development suffered...they'll be back when the weather cooperates. What choice do they have?
