Just saw a nice 8-10pt, large bodied velvet buck gnawing on a tree limb coming north on Simmons Rd out of Lake Grapevine entrance near Merle Park. He was in great shape, 4-5yo maybe 18" already and in velvet. Has to be some hosses around that lake...

A few years back the CoE was quietly doing a limited number of archery draw hunts on land they have at the far North end of the lake to get the population in check,not sure if they still are.
Some good bucks were taken out of there.
When they first let the hunters on to scout some they found lots of evidence that poachers had been on that land for a few years.

There are a ton of monster bucks in that area. I have seen a few massive non typicals including the biggest buck I’ve ever seen in person between Bob Jones Park and Lake View Park.

These are 2 deer that have been killed on grapevine that made the news. I believe the black and white photo deer was 190”. The other was hit by a truck.

If I remember the story correctly on the black and white photo, the guy had just started deer hunting and it was the first deer he had ever shot. Possibly his first sit in a bow stand but I can't say for sure that detail is correct.

sorry, Bobo. I wouldnt have posted that if I thought the hunting was productive on the lake. all the deer I have seen are way east of the huntable area near twin coves where a bunch of the neighbors feed them. I scouted the hunting area a few times by boat, but wasnt impressed.

It's all good, after all it's public land. The deer posted aren't the biggest taken out there. I bet half the guys that draw never hunt it more then once because access it tough and it's thick.

It's a pretty special place, I havent been able to draw in a while. In hindsight I can't really do it justice anyway because of taking kids hunting and hunting out west.

If someone draws, I highly recommend putting boots on the ground and toughing it out, a lot of opportunity

I have some "Fight Club" spots. If I bow hunted, this would be one of them. I've seen pic's and met a hunter that took a monster there.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.
