I also think that the moon kept the Deer beded down this weekend we hunt in Leon County on 125 acres there are three of us and we hunted hard and between us we seen 8 or 9 deer total, no hogs. Any idea on how the rest of the Post Savana area did.
i spent the weekend in alto, texas, which is located in the eastern part of the state. my weekend was actually great, spotting 16 different bucks for sure, with multiple encouters with repeat deer. most of the deer were better than legal size, but with the potential of the tract i am hunting i just dont want to end my season yet. i also discovered the largest rub i have ever seen, by a long shot.
weather was in the 30s saturday morning and warmer on sunday, no rain until sunday night.
I talked with a few friends by phone in the Post Oak Savana area and they also came up short out of five of them there was only one buck killed an eight point and two hogs. I will have to say that the grass did look greener than it has all summer so mabe rain did cause a slow down.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
