Well, I had high expectations at the beginning of this hunting season.. With all of the nice deer we had been seeing on the game cams.. I just knew I would connect with one of the monsters.. But as timing had it.. we were closing on some property in Blanco county, around the end of Nov.. so my hunting plans changed. I was not going to get to hunt up at my N.tx place any more this season. I held out all of archery season trying to get a doe and all I saw were small bucks and one old wide 6(that in hindsight I should have shot). Opening weekend was slow and that monday, I pulled the trigger on 3.5yr old 8pt.. I needed some meat and all of the does were underground.. the following weekend, I took an approx 7yr old doe at my place in Blanco.. she was at least 7.. she had her front teeth but only a small part of her 4th molars were all that were left in her head.. funny thing---- she had milk.. So I guess she raised a bunch of fawns.. I dropped them off at Granzin's in New Braunfels and got some really awesome sausage,steaks and ground meat. Had some of that sausage tonight... very tasty.. I hunted a bit in between remodeling sessions on the new place to no avail.. There is still next weekend for the extended spike and doe season, so I will try to get one more doe for the freezer... I have seen a couple of decent bucks on the game cam, but they have been feeding mostly at night... It looks like there are a couple of bucks, with some potential, that will dodge the bullet this year.. It was still a good year for me, despite that I hunted far less than I would have liked.. I guess its time to get back into fishing mode.. Until spring turkey...... the bottom two pics are in my front yard in blanco county..... Lets hear some of yall's stories and see some pics.. GS?? MrBill??? did yall kill anything????
