Agreed. This will be my 3rd year in the program. It is work.

This will be year two for me, conservation option, high fence. Deer spotlight counts go on three weekends in Sept, tags issued late Sept. And yep, it's work once you get the quota.

Curious, what amount of acres is this on? We had 10 bucks, 20 anterless last year on ~2000 acres

Probably only the bucks. Last lease I was on in Kendal co was 700-800 acres wasn’t uncommon to have 10-15 bucks hit the ground opening weekend.

Haven't had a day like that yet, but the buzzards and varmints do seem to enjoy the gut pile. food

high rack/top drive, start corning roads every day for month. Then drive around and wack. Most time they will just run off road 30 yards and you can see then from high rack


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

High rack would get swept off going under trees. On a side note, before I was born, my family's truck equipment business made some early top-drives for hunting. What a nightmare. We lost our shirt. 'Also made some of the first cut-off Jeepsters, with rifle scabbards, etcetera, for the Klebergs. Also lost our shirt. We decided to stay away from the hunting "industry" after that. grin

Harvest option doesn't require surveys/counts.

How does MLD work?


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

Agree to the program, to use only MLD tags on your property, etc. You'll have to select Harvest Option or Conservation Option. They have different requirements and differ as to when you can start shooting regular bucks.

We belonged to a COOP and we counted observations and sent them in to the COOP. This allowed us to get doe permits through P&W. We could only take doe by permit only but we harvested bucks by normal harvesting using tags on our licenses. We could only harvest bucks by what was limited by the county. I liked that setup as we used that for many years and it worked great. Don't know if this will be much help though.
