Hey,
It's no suprise that this deer season will be great,with all the rain we had.Check out what Houston Chronicle's Doug Pike wrote 8-5-04 about this Deer Season.Rem.came out with three new rounds. Their loads that light on recoil,in the .270,30-06,and 7Mag.Shows the 7 Mag.with a kick just a little more than the .243
But the 7 Mag is kicking out a 140 grain bullet.Sure wish I could find that handload.Should be better than my pet load with a 120 grain bullet in my 7 Mag light load for my daughter.

We had as much rain last year and thought that the deer would be great, but it was a really **** poor year in Real County. I hope you're right!

We didn't have any trouble with the size of animals last year just the rain was so late that we had knee deep green grass at Chrsitmas. couldn't see anything. Most bucks were killed while standing up from their bed and had been in gun range of us all along. either that or rattling. None were shot at a feeder.

Rain

We have had record rainfall up here and even more up at my place on the Red River. My friend was down feeding the place last weekend and saw a tremendous Buck still sporting velvet. As soon as I can get up and around again I'm gonna put the scouting camera's back out and see what I got this year. The Coastal-Bermuda and native prarie grasses are green and tall. There should be alot of acorns making feeder hunting awful tough. I never seen a real big buck at a feeder anyway. I like to hunt the trail intersections. Old Mature Bucks around these parts seem to shy away from stands and feeders. When food is scarce, they will hit them at night. It should be an above average year if not an outstanding year up here.
