near Doole? I'm looking at a place on CR 4368 just southwest of Doole proper. About a mile and a half off of FM765. I already have a lease northwest of Doole at Lowake. I realize things were tough this year. Just curious what the area is like on a normal year. Thanks!

You’re east of most of the solar and it should be decent to good hunting. 120-130” normal with a rare 140-150” mixed in and typically good numbers. I hunted southeast of Paintrock last few years and the ranch signed a deal with solar during this season. A lot of uncertainty now…good luck!

Our place is on 83 just north of 765. Our numbers have been down the last couple of years. If the numbers get back to where they were 4 years ago, you’ll have great hunting. We have 630 acres and I’ve killed 2 145-150” bucks in the last 5 years

Concho County has sold its soul for the short term gain of green energy. Hunting was always good across most of the county with the chance of killing a 130-150" deer with just a little management. Drought has taken its toll on populations and antler quality just like it has in Menard County and the general area. Not sure how far Concho County will go with the "Greenies" as they are using the increased tax dollars to build new schools and other improvements to the county. Land values in Concho County were always much lower than surrounding counties but have taken another big hit from the obnoxious wind turbines. Now I understand that they plan to build a solar farm or two...At least they are visible from 30 miles away.
Adios,
Gary

I dont see 2023 fawn crop doing much better then 22 due to low fat reserves of does going into the winter. Only saving grace as its been pretty mild so far.

as far as solar those who didnt sign/get solar, they will have better hunting and an influx in the short term of genetic dispersal in.

This would be the time to introduce supplemental feed
