I hunt in Edwards County near Rocksprings, Tx. Our deer season this year was one on the worst we have seen in the past 10 years. Deer were not coming to the feeders and corn was on the ground all season long. I believe it was because of the warm weather all season and the abundant acorn crop we had this year.

Please tell me how your season went in the Hill Country and why you think it was so poor this year.

Should be a great 2020 Season!!!!

Terrible here. Jack County. No deer seen during the day. Cameras showed them at the feeders at night. One nice buck. Maybe next year

I'm not in the Hill country but in more the rolling plains. This year was one of the best we have had. Now last year was horrible in my area kind of like they way you are describing in yours this year. We also don't have oak trees in my area either so no acorns to deal with. Better luck next year. Stonewall County.

Northern Jack county was great. Deer didn’t go to feeders much, but they were moving quite a bit when the weather was cool.

Concho county was terrible. Deer came to the feeders, (we don’t have oak trees) but mostly doe and young bucks. We didn’t see a mature buck all season. We had 4 or 5 at the end of ‘18 season

But, I hunted every weekend and had a great time

Freestone county MLD3 ... seen deer on every sit almost, mostly young to middle age bucks, been leaving does alone (took 1) until later (freeing up freezer space). I think I am up to 8 or 9 hogs, 1 coyote.

Crockett county ... only went out a couple of time mainly to do game count surveys to see if impacted by anthrax in the area, still lots on game cam and doesn't seem to have been impacted, saw a number of young-middle age bucks but few does/fawns in person, no shots fired.

Burnet county ... see lots on game cam a couple of huge for the area, only a few in person, younger-middle age bucks and few does, mostly shooting hogs on sight.

still have some hunting time left (this weekend in Burnet) and thru end of Feb. in Freestone. Had some fun times around camp, cooking, eating, BSing and spending time in the woods.

Very tough in Kendall county near boerne.

Managed to scratch out a few bow kills on culls but overall it was very poor

Parker County was great for me until the acorns let loose. Still saw lots of deer but didn't stay at the feeders. Never could get the boy on one.

Looked good early in the gun season in Erath county but they seemed to go nocturnal after Christmas. Hunting for does in extended season.

Most comments seem to indicate a bad year with 2 factors mentioned most. More young deer seen and the abundant acorn crop.
Have thoughts on what else may have affected your poor hunt?

Osage county in OK. Tons of Acorns...but then again, we don't hunt feeders up there, we hunt the oaks. We did see fewer deer, but I think that was more based on timing than anything else.

Navarro County in TX, we have corn, protein feeders, and planted plots. Saw plenty of deer, but we are seeing fewer mature deer than in the past. We do have more hunters around us now than in the past too, so it seems that they are just getting shot, and had nothing to do with acorns. My boy and my Mother-in-law both scored.

Excellent year for me. Extremely blessed to be invited to my best friends uncle’s ranch and shot this stud near Rocksprings. Also shot a nice 10 point near Junction this year too with Clay Pope. All LF deer on small properties! Always saw good numbers of deer every hunt.[Linked Image]
