Probably a sign that the bucks are actively seeking out Does. Get off of that feeder...if that is what you are hunting.

I haven't hunted Mills County in quite a few years, but my family used to own 800 acres West of Goldthwaite. In the many years I hunted it....bucks were moving pretty good by the last week in October into the first two weeks of November. Of course, it can vary some year to year....but right now should be good most places.


Spartans ask not...how many, but where!

I’m SE of Goldthwaite and it was pretty hot between the 6th-11th. I saw 7 different 4.5+ bucks locked up with does. I watched a one-horn buck whip two others in a matter of minutes. Fun stuff! Typical peak is 13th-17th.

I’m back today but not hunting until this evening.
