South of Bowie. Having to work on a tractor so can’t hunt. Haven’t even heard a shot.

North of Bowie, I had good action yesterday and today and hinted same stand. Son wasn't in ready in time for a shooter. I told him you have 5 seconds or he is gone.... Other stands completely dead.

Eastern Erath, Chalk mountain area here. Been a good weekend as far as movement goes. All 3 bucks that we've seen were cruising and skittish. TxDuckman, you're right. 5 seconds is usually all the time you have. Later in the season you might catch them in a food plot or at a feeder, but for now they are on the move. Need to be able to identify a shooter. Quickly. Good luck all!

What I don’t understand is not hearing any shots in the area. Heard none this afternoon. Never happened on opening weekend

It is an early opening. All we saw in Montague is pre-rut. Next weekend is more prime time for the rut until the next weekend. Bucks are just cruising so shot window is almost nothing. They just walked by does 50 yards away not stopping. Only little young guys actually chased. I heard one close shot today and one yesterday but pigs are everywhere. Acorns are a bumper crop.

Same this morning; nothing. Quit and came home. Never had an opening where the whole area was silent.

Only heard 1 shot opening morning way off. Saw a few small ones. All moving. Nothing Saturday afternoon. NW Eastland county


It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance.
