Recently setup a new spot out on our property in east Texas. Dropped a doe on the first sit within 2 hours and this one on my second sit two days later. [Linked Image]

Nice healthy Buck. Still fairly young. In good shape.

Representative of East Texas potential.

Congratulations on a nice deer.

Just curious as to how you decided to pick that location to put up a stand? I'm a firm believer in the old saying that the best time to hunt a new stand is the first time you climb into it.

Good work, that’s a great buck.

I hunt E. Texas too and the deer are mostly nocturnal at this point. Sat for 2 full days this past Sun/Mon….saw 1 doe.

The location is between a pond on our place and a pretty thick area where I assume they are bedding down. [Linked Image] View out of the right window.

You are 100% right. This was on our property near Hillister but I’m on a lease in Buna as well. I’ve probably sat 10 or 12 sits at the lease in Buna this season including several full days and have only seen one deer and it was moving so fast I didn’t even get a good look at it.

Mighty fine buck right there!


When he was young, I told Dale Jr. that hunting and racing are a lot alike. Holding that steering wheel and holding that rifle both mean you better be responsible.

If those are your local genetics based off what appears to be 3.5 year old. You should be able to have great deer, east Texas trophy’s if left alone until 5-6!

I hope so my goal is to try and grow me and my boys a great herd. I’m thinking about getting off the lease next year and just focusing on our place. Our place hadn’t been really a hunted in years, it’s actually the place where I started hunting many many many years ago!!! We had a game cam setup out there some years ago and actually had pics of some really nice deer but all the pics were nocturnal. I’ll see if I can find them.

From the view from your blind it looks like a beautiful place!

Thanks sir. There’s 65 acres of heavy thick woods, pasture land and some thin woods.
