I recently bought land in Kerens Tx (east of 45 and north of 31)

I have found tons of hog tracks and some deer tracks/droppings as well but not sure how old they are. The property does have a pond about 20 yards in diameter and is 1.01 miles away from the trinity river. I put a feeder and game cam out near the pond where it looks like two game trails intersect. It has been 3 days and I have not had any animals show up at all, not even raccoons. Being from Spring Branch Tx I'm used to seeing deer within 5 minutes of throwing corn out so maybe I'm being impatient, but I'm hoping someone on here has experience hunting the area and can tell me how the deer/hog hunting is here, as well as what I can do to help these deer find my corn if they are here.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice

There is some great deer, deer hunting, and lots of pressure. If you have a small tract and are surrounded by small tracts you might see less deer than others. I hunt South of 31 along the river and the quantity of deer we have is staggering, but we still deal with pressure from adjacent landowners who are out doing the same thing we do.

I hunt Navarro county. There are decent deer around and alot of pigs. Have patience and depending how big your property is remember you might just be on one of their travel corridors. The deer will come so will the hogs. Rut is coming very soon

If you can plant a food plot it will help bring them in. Either oats, wheat, rye, winter peas, clover, radishes etc. will work out great. Once you attract the doe's the bucks will follow. If you have oak trees like I do in Fairfield the acorns have started to fall and the deer prefer those over everything for a while. Good luck and welcome to the Forum! welcome

I appreciate y'alls responses, I've only lived out here for 9 days so I was dying to know if they were here...

I'm waiting to buy a tractor until my house back in Spring Branch sells so I won't have a food plot until next season but part of the reason I was wanting to know was to figure out if it would even be worth the investment . Sounds like it's worth a shot!

The game camera I put out is just a cheap wild wildgame innovations from academy, but I know it works because I have plenty of pictures of myself lol

How many acres did you buy? My brother has a lake house near Malakoff and we see tons of deer and hogs. We rarely see a big buck during the day, but we have some really good ones over corn at night.

26 acres... buttttt I went to drop off my blind at the spot I will be hunting today and realized the only day the feeder was set for is Saturday... I set it up on Monday so the feeder has never even had a chance to go off except for the test spin I did on the day I set it up

They seem to be already starting the rut in Navarro, I am always suprised by how early. Multiple TC sequences of does being chased by multiple bucks and one of the larger bucks I have on the hit list this year from one day to the next got his eye gouged from what I assume would be fighting. We rarely have bucks come to feeders, always impresses me just how smart and their learned behaviors are. I will see them crusing edges and pinch points however rarely ever get TC photos of them at feeders. They seem to go out of their way to avoid them.
