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.

SHHHHHHHHH. With some good ol fashion scouting and time, if you draw a permit it can have rewards

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.

Shut TF up about grapevine.
The last message is exactly what I’m talking about. Someone getting drawn who has never stepped foot on the property. So many of us have spent years out there on general permit or just fishing and have never gotten drawn. You’re ruining this property.

Says the beginner duck hunter that will be flaring ducks away from everyone ruining their hunting.....but I wish you good luck anyway. BTW a good kayak would be a sit on 12 to 14' long and wide, around 32" or so for stability

Good one, insult someone for trying something new. Keeping to myself, won’t be calling, staying away from others, one duck would be a success for me. Sit on top isn’t the way to go.

Don’t even bother hunting it. All the deer frequent areas that are nearly impossible to hunt during daylight. Haven’t seen anything more than a yearly fawn on my scouting trips.

Lol. You two roflmao

That’s a negative. I’ve never not had a tag out opportunity. May have been a few years I was chasing a dead deer but nonetheless I was passing deer. With that said I also hunted it for many many years, and put a lot of boots on the ground.

Bronco71, if you need some pointers PM me. Becareful with going “over” the Rail Road, Rail Road police are way over zealous
