    Is a .243 enough for a cow hunt?

    Close and controlled is the key words. What unit did he draw? If its the 6A hunt and can give you some ideas where they will walk pretty must past you everyday.

    2018 youth deer success

    Had a great youth hunt this year. We deep fried turkey on Thanksgiving day at our deer camp and enjoyed the afternoon around the campfire, filling our bellies. It was a pretty tough hunt this year considering the area was really hit hard during the general season and the rut had not started. Opening morning we glassed up a lot of deer, but could only come up with a small forked horn which both boys passed on. Lots of glassing and hiking with little to get excited about. Friday evening we found another group of hunters in the area we planned on hunting, so we went to plan B to see if we could locate anything before dark. We found a small 4x3 with minutes to spare of shooting light and my 13 year old put the hammer on him for his very first deer. The following morning, I sent my oldest son into an area I hunted as a kid, that has always been a productive area. He located 2 nice bucks, which included a 4x4 and 3x2. After several hours of crawling on his hands and knees through the rocks and cactus, he got close enough to make a shot in the wide open country on the bigger of the 2 bucks and got it done again. He has shot mature bucks the last 3 years in a row. Super proud of both these young men.

    Unit 10 muzzleloader suggestions

    Drew a unit 10 Muzzleloader bull for early November and looking for some help of where to start. I have never hunted 10 and plan to spend a good amount of time scouting areas for the hunt, I'm just trying to save some time and fuel instead of starting from scratch. I will be paying the fee to access the big bo ranch, considering it covers a lot of the unit. I'm not into road hunting and willing to put the miles in for a quality hunt. Willing to trade info on good areas for Deer and Javelina up around the Bagdad area where I grew up. Not asking for anyone's honey holes, just some areas to start looking. Thanks in advance for any advice and good luck with all your hunts this year.

    2017 youth buck

    My lucky son drew the same late season youth tag he had last year and got it done again. We setup camp Thanksgiving afternoon and spent the evening glassing the country. We spotted probably close to a hundred deer, but only saw one young 2x3. The following opening morning, we glasses another area and could find nothing but does. The weather was extremely warm and everything bedded down early, so we spent about 3 hours hiking and hunting the edge of a canyon, only to kick up a small spike. That evening we could not turn up any bucks before dark either. The following morning we decided to hunt another area that seems to always hold bucks, but is hard to get within shooting range most of the time. After 10 minutes behind the optics, I spotted 2 deer about 2 miles out that looked like they might be bucks. After getting a spotting scope on them, we had to wait for the sun to come up before we could make out antlers. We watched them for 2 hours until they finally bedded down in the middle of open nothing of course, no bushes, trees, or anything for a landmark, just lots of cactus and rocks. We hiked in to where we thought they were and started stopping ang glassing every 20 yards or so, until finally I picked up some antlers stickup up above a cactus. The slight breeze was perfect, so we slowly crawled for a couple of hours until we saw antlers again 70 yards in front of us. We setup and got ready for the long wait for the bucks to stand up. The dilemma was whether to take the small 3x3 or the heavy 2x2. After getting a good look, we decided the 2x2 was a much more mature buck. After about 40 minutes, we got lucky and the bigger buck stood up to move to a new bed. He was quartering away and my son made a perfect shot that dropped him in his tracks. Not as big of a rack as his buck from last year, but still mature and a heavier body. Well worth the sore knees and cactus in us from all the crawling. The picture of the open country was while we were waiting, they are bedded down 70 yards away. I need to get the picture on a larger screen to see if I can pick out the antlers.

    Sons 2016 muley

    My 15 year son got this buck during his youth hunt in November, It's his second deer. He shot a small forked horn last year, but said he wanted to shoot a nice 4 point this last year. Explained to him that he would have to hunt hard, pass on small bucks, and could possibly not get a deer, and he accepted the challenge. He passed up 7 bucks before we decided to pursue this one and he got it done. Super proud of him controlling his urges to pull the trigger on the smaller bucks and making a great shot on this one. Love the opportunities this state has to offer with youth hunts to get these kids involved in the sport.
