Well, I was not going to "hunt" this weekend since I have had a bad cold all week, but since it is basically just watching the goings on out the back porch, why not??

There were some major bruisers that have been around over the last three months that I was waiting on but they never showed up. Instead, I have two 8's a freak 5 and a goofy 4 that has been around for at least 5 years. Dont ask why I havent shot him, I have no excuses...

It's not what anyone would call hunting, since I am in the house watching the feeder out the back windows. But when that bigger 8 pointer came crashing out of the brush, tongue hanging out, running all the does around and chasing the 4 pointer around, it sure was exciting.

Here are some pics. The first one is of the big boys I am waiting on. They are on the neighbors place behind ours... about 200-250 yds away and over the fence.

The second one is the smaller 8 that was also running the does around.

Richard, Scotts neighbor has a big ole protein feeder that he feeds year round.. I am pretty sure that they dont put in food plots...

The property those big boys are on has NO feeders or food plots at all. (this is behind my place) One of those big deer hangs out next door, but the monster feeder seems to be throwing corn more often than protein...(no food plots) and the old man does not hunt at all anymore... that retried couple just enjoy the massive herd of does that collects at their feeder twice a day.

Oh yeah, none of the properties around here are high fenced. I thought the big ones might have escaped from some breeding facilicity, but there is not one around here... they are just smart old deer...

One other thing I guess I failed to mention.. those big deer pictures were taken around the first of September. I have seen them around a few other times since then, but not for very long and not out in the open.

I saw a monster buck at my place about 3 years ago. He was front cover magazine material. I think that he may have sewn his oats around the area...at least I'm hoping that he did. I plan on planting some Tecamote for the deer and I'm looking into setting up a couple of protein feeders to get them going.
I have a pretty good nucleus of bucks...just need to bring them along as they get to be four to five years old.

A friend of mine lives in Hollywood Park, a subdivision in San Antonio. As he was getting in his car this morning to drive to work, this buck was in his front yard. They have a no kill rule in his neighborhood. The quality is poor because he took the pic with his cell phone.

No problem with a "no kill rule." Just wound him badly and track him out of the neighborhood, then get down on all fours, start howling, and bite him in the throat. Noone will dare come near you.

I got a new camera and this is a test. Figured I'd put this in the hunting section since you hunting guys might appreciate this nice Mule deer I popped a while back. By the way, those rods just arrived. They are the custom ones by txseadog. OTI 2-pc 80#, and OTI 52XXH custom. I was hiding them as I got so much stuff in the mail today I had to hide some. I'll start a new thread on the rods once I do some lift tests.

Nice hiding spot... no one would ever spot that, eh??? hhehehehehe

Wrong. When I got home from work, I decided to get some rods together for some test tomorrow. I discovered the rods had been moved. :eek: I guess I have to find a new hiding place. Never a break!!
