anti hunters in TX? I thought everyone had a gun down there. why would they do that? was it their hunting land before you got it?


good luck. that's just plain wrong
We've been going to the farm several years and have never seen anyone at their property until Friday. After our morning hunt Dave, Logan, and I drove to their house and met them all. We had a nice conversation we thought. Turns out they are hunters too. They live in the Dallas area and use this place as a weekend/hunting property. The reason we went to their house was to let them know we had the place across the fence leased and wanted them to know who we were etc. I'm thinking they hunted our place as they wanted because it has never been watched over much. They had the fence cut so they could get in from their property. My guess is after we left they decided they would try to run us off. I've never experienced anything like that. Hunters usually don't do things like that to other hunters. Especially after neighboring hunters extended the courtesy of a friendly visit to their camp. My feelings are these are city jerks that don't respect anyone. They live in a self centered world and could care less who they offend. Dallas is full of these types. I don't know what I'm going to do yet but something is going to be done in retaliation to what they did to us.  I'm pretty pissed about it.

I'm in Louisiana. I haven't that happen but every year the surrounding neighbors are doing something to hinder our hunting. I've had them steal and break my feeders, drain the corn out, put out moth balls and hair, tear down the gates, cut my guide cables twice this year and pushed my tripod over and on top of that ride or walk around doing who knows what when we are not there. It's not anti-hunters its people that don't respect other's things!

My season ended today. Another year without a deer. But I sure did enjoy the season. Except for the bad neighbor experience in east Texas I had a lot of fun with my two sons and dad. We had a lot of fun at deer camp. We do have youth only until the 19th and I plan to get Logan out there a few more times.

Yesterday I took the kids on their first duck hunt. Logan shot his first duck. He was so excited.  After we hunted in the blind awhile they got a little bored so we decided to walk the creek area hoping to jump some ducks and get some more shots. We didn't jump any ducks. Instead we flushed out some hogs. We were real close to killing range with our shotguns but I called it off and we watched them scamper off. We found something I have never seen. The hogs had cut a whole bunch of switch grass and formed a perfect nest with it. It looked exactly like a huge bird nest. I had my son Logan lay in it for the pic to show the size of it.  It was a real cool morning. We didn't get home until well after noon. Boy were we hungry. 



This afternoon I went for one last deer hunt at my lease close to home.  I saw 5 doe and 3 bucks while hunting. None were legal deer. But it was fun to see some action for a change. It got dark so I had to leave. I drove towards the gate and shined my lights across a field. There stood about 8 doe and 4-5 bucks all out in the open grazing.  3 of the bucks were shooters. I watched them for over 10 minutes in my headlights. They paid me no mind at all. I could have easily taken one. No one else was around and they were right there only 50-75 yds away. But that would have been wrong and illegal. So I watched and enjoyed the moment. I didn't have pics of any of these bucks. This is he first I have seen of them. They all looked young and will look even better next year. Maybe one will show himself for Logan.

That's exactly right split. It's so much fun seeing my boys develop a love and desire to be out there. And so cool for them to spend time at camp with dad....and them actually enjoy it. This year a lot of progress was made In terms of my boys developing their outdoor/hunting skills and desires. It won't be long and they'll be taking me.  My job is no where near done but we are on the right track

Youth only deer season ends Sunday the 19th. After Logan's basketball games Saturday we are off to east Texas for one more try. He can shoot a buck or doe. Hopefully the idiot neighbors won't be there so we can hunt Undisturbed deer this time. The feeder has been running all season. There should be some action around it.

Russ your post put a smile on my face. I commend you for being there for your kids and watching them develop into young men. My son is 24 now and he was in the woods or on a lake with me from about 4 on. I miss the Scouts and all the sports. He finally settled on wrestling and became a state champion in high school, those were fun times. We still hunt and fish as much as possible but he's working now and I'm retired...but you right he takes me hunting or fishing sometimes. Your at a very special time in life right now...enjoy the ride my friend!!! Absolutely nothing better than spending time in the outdoors with family.
