I see some great bucks being killed in Harrison County. I hunt East of Marshall and I do not see many deer period. For you guys that hunt Harrison County, what are ya'll doing to attract and hold these deer?
Thanks for any advice.
Lance

What about Marion and Panola counties? How are you guys pulling in the big bucks?

Probably just hunting a better patch of ground.

Make as big of a food plot as you can.

There’s been some very large deer killed in Harrison County... look at 903 Outdoors and East Texas Hunting Club on the FaceBook

903 Outdoors is where I saw them. I sent some of those guys PMs but no responses. I guess their success is based on top secret squirrel stuff.

Haven't scored yet or seen many shooters but have more had more young bucks to look at than ever. I have some good hardwood that brings them in when the acorns are present. I live west of Marshall and north of Nesbit. Also have lease below LOP dam and numbers are solid. Large doe population both places. That's what the black powder is for.

What do you use to attract and hold deer on your ground? I am surrounded by deer leases and can see 2 blind and feeder setups from my property. No equipment to plant plots so I'm just running 2 corn feeders with plain ol corn on 40 acres.

Man, sounds like you’re screwed unless you catch one chasing a doe through there.

I’ve Been hunting off Hwy 43 on the way to Caddo Lake for over 20 years. The deer quality is much better in last 10 years but unfortunately with all the timber cutting, road riding and general gun shooting for fun all day long, most deer move at night. I have deer I’ve been watching for multiple years but just can’t get a shot during the day. I use feeders but mostly mineral sites with mineral rocks and deer cane to keep them in an area. Keeping the pigs out will help.

Patience. Friday I took a nice 8 pt. with exceptional brows in Marion Co. that I had never seen or had a pic of running cameras since before bow season. Probably hunted there over 30 times but kept plugging. Stayed confident the big one was still out there. He was cruising for love rundown stunk to high heaven. Have new bucks at both my places in the last week.
