These two above but in managing a large lease for many years I was surprised to find that many just quick hunting or stopped for a long time. This seemed to usually be because of their kids. Their kids either hunted when young and stopped when they got into other activities in HS or they hunted through HS but stopped as they got busy in adulthood. Ive also seen the opposite where parents really ramped up their hunting as their kids quit hunting. I’ll be curious to see what other reasons come up but these 3 are common.
As for getting booted off, that’s pretty obvious, they weren’t what the landowner wanted for a large variety of reasons. I could lists many reasons but most probably are rooted in disrespect, entitlement, arrogance or ignorance. Some landowners dont need the money enough to deal with even a little inconvenience or lack of privacy.

I’ve gotten off 4 after 1 year due to no deer. Usually killed off long before we got on it. Rotating door for different hunters every season. Lost 2 leases due to land being sold.

TPACK, how's the deer hunting around Stephenville? I tell my freshman daughter to always be very careful driving from and to Tarleton State, especially in the dark of night or early morning. The last 20 miles coming from I-20 on US 281 look pretty "deer gamey" to me, am I correct?

Lots of deer near and around Stephenville / Erath County. Getting harder every year to get a mature deer though. It really depends on if your neighbors will pass on a 3-year-old, 8 or 10 point that is about 120 inches. We see lots of those deer every year and the next season they disappear. I`ve passed on 3 - 10 points like that this season and I`m sure they`ll be dead by end of season. But, if it`s a legal buck, they have every right to shoot it.

Deer on 281 aren`t too bad except when the bucks go crazy and act stupid like they were about 3 weeks ago when the cold front came through. I even hit an 8-point driving home from my lease about 10 miles west of Morgan Mill. For about a week the deer were all over the bar ditches and crossing the roads at dawn and dusk. I even had to stop for a nice buck that was in the middle of the road (SH 108) with his nose on the ground. It was like dodging land mines for about 10 days or so. Rest of the time it`s not any worse than any other road. confused2
