I had the same thing happen in Houston county. I didn't even get a buck this year because around the first of November EVERYTHING went nocturnal. But last Saturday morning I watched a parade of thirteen deer including eleven bucks come eat the last of the acorns within twenty yards of the house. I checked my feeders...five bucks at one at 10:30 am...at 1 PM, three different ones at the same feeder. Hogs and deer at all my feeders during daylight hours. Even a bobcat at one.

Hunting east Texas for the first time taught me, I am going to have to change my approach for next season. I was spoiled by seeing 25 or 30 deer most times I hunted when I used to be on a lease on the Victoria/Goliad county line on Coleto Creek.

I went out and bought a crossbow two weeks ago so I can ambush the deer next October before they disappear!

Do you suppose we are seeing deer now due to things getting quiet now and they notice it?

Im not sure that there ARE more sightings now except in this one example. If there are then I would not think its because of less pressure. I would just think they got hungrier. But my opinion may not count for much since we do not pressure our deer much. I don't know Hiwayman but from what I recall about some of his history on here I would be surprised if his deer are pressured much at all(correct me if wrong.)

Chances are the majority of bucks in that photo were not in that area of the ranch during the rut. They were moved out by dominant bucks or they left their home area for the rut and now have returned. January can be and is usually the worst month of the year for deer and forage. It is similar to August in many areas just that in August the majority of the browse still has leaves. A small grain field in late Dec into Feb is crucial for a deer diet for many areas.
