Slow for me as well... Had a 5 ptr come to me and bed at 8:30, grunted up a 4 ptr at 9. Got down at 11 when I ran out of all my food :).

Scouted/ stillhunted the block of woods right behind the TWRA checkin station...less buck sign there than anyplace I've seen, but I did manage to sneak up to within 20 yds of a 7ptr rubbing the heck outta some bushes....saw another 1.5 yo buck and a 2.5 yo buck. Been back on stand for 45 min or so for the eve hunt.

All the guys I've talked to who hunted in years past have been very disappointed. Not sure if it's the heat or last years flood (prob the flood), but they seem to think there's just a fraction of the deer that used to be here \:\(

How's the buck sign look? I'm curious after all the flooding that went on. When I was there 7 or 8 years back the huge rubs and scrapes were everywhere.

Still have rubs and fresh scrapes everywhere. Found one on a tree the size of a telephone pole.

Missed a pretty good one early and then let a real bruiser get by me. Tried sounding like a frog but it didn't work. Saw four does and one smaller buck right around noon. Changed locations for the afternoon. Think I'll try and get 50-feet high and see if that works.

Most of the scrapes (I suppose I've seen 60 to 70) haven't been hit in the past couple days.... Have seen one or two that have doe prints in them from the past day or so. Fair number of rubs, I've seen more per acre o


n several other properties I've hunted
