Starting my journal a little into bow season.. but its been so Hot and Humid, not much to talk about..
Went to Lease Saturday, hunted 2 hours in the rain, very hot and Humid, mesquitoes carried me off, saw a doe a small 3 pointer.
Set up a cedar rubbing post on edge of food plot, encouraging some larger bucks to stop and rub it down.
Checked all trail cams.. had 3 new deer I have not seen all year, with 1 good shooter 8.. Still have not seen #1 in about a month now.
Food plots are  beautiful, and plush as I have ever seen.
Went to camp at noon, with heavy rain starting again, picked up propane bottles, and came home to watch Texas / OU game . Hook em horns
Locked in Arkansas trip today with JM.. all is set for Nov. 11th trip for 7 days in NE Arkansas near Missouri border.. Chris has spotted 3 bears in area as well, and sent me trail pics today of some really nice shooters we hope are there when we arrive.. Praying my shoulder holds out thru deer season.. Starting to really bother me now, but I will tough it out till December.

Golee I was hunting not too far from you in wood county about 12 miles south of winnsborro.  Boy was it humid!  You could see the air. We pretty much missed the storms.

My buddy Dave got carried off by the skeeters too. I was all nestled up in my summit climber with a thermacell and didn't have one single skeeter buzz me.  Dave had to go in because if them.  If you haven't got one yet get it!

And yes......HOOKEM HORNS!   They played a good game.

Yea. I heard that. My T cell was in my bag but I was out of scent refills. I knew then I was in for it. Man it was crazy bad out there with no protection. In serious I bet I had 25 bites on me when I came our. I went to Academy Sun night and got some
How did you like the thick woods of East Texas. It's tough hunting. But it's one if the biggest deer hunting challenges   You have to sit on em and let em walk into you  good luck hunting
Hope that spot works out for you. There are good deer in that area
I travel in and out of the Quitman area and see big deer in the bottoms alot.
Good hardwoods and water everywhere

I grew up hunting east Texas  close to Elkhart. 

It is tough in East Texas but the deer are there. I think more than what most people realize.  I'm almost afraid to bow hunt the place if I do get it because of how thick it is.  Retrieval would be a big challenge.  I'm thinking a carefully placed shot with the .270 would give me a better chance to retrieve a deer.

It's certainly a different world than the hill country and the mesquites out west.  I love the east Texas piney woods.
HOOKEM HORNS!

I love it to. I moved away from East Tx several years and have hunted West Tx and South Tx and love it out there as well. But there has always been a special feeling about hunting the Piney woods of East Tx. It's just my kind of hunting I guess  it's not easy or very productive but it keeps you on your toes always thinking and guessing. You right the deer are here but their hard to get out. Their smart as a whip. It makes it that much more sweeter to get a nice buck. Good luck
