Get some tail

The river is now at a 50 year low as far as flow is concerned. The birds have begun to show up, but the main piles of them are not here yet. If you choose to run this river now, it is only navigable by jet foot or air boat. A boat with a prop will come back with no prop in this river right now. Duck season should be as good as it’s ever been. Beyond this Friday no more doe can be taken in Bastrop County unless you have MLD permits. However, I will still run bow hunts on the two tracts I have. We have seen multiple giants and at least a dozen more shooters. Bow hunters had a good evening. Big Mike took his first deer ever with a bow. It was a very nice 3.5 year old 9 point. (See my picture gallery.) Had two more guys take doe this evening.

Don’t hesitate to book a couple days of bow hunting. You might surprise yourself with a giant at very little cost. I have bow hunters, rifle hunters and duck season all over lapping now, so call ahead if you can. I do have help, but we can’t be in multiple places at one time.

TPWD has posted the 2012 duck season rules, definitions, and seasons on their website. My helpful links has their site. Early season Nov. 3- Nov. 25 ; Late season Dec. 8 2012- Jan. 27, 2013

Get Some Tail.

Duck, duck, not yet

I am getting a lot of guys wanting to duck hunt. The birds are not here yet, but I have seen a few groups in the last few days. I can handle large groups if given enough notice. My pricing may change a little bit in the next few days, but not for anyone who has already booked a trip.

Big boys on the prowl

The bucks are moving. They are looking and searching for a mate. There are a few doe that are in, but most are not. The cold front coming this weekend should break a lot of these doe loose, and we should be seeing the big boys acting silly. Can’t stick ‘em on the couch…get in a tree.

Get your hunt and fish on

Bass fishing on river is getting better everyday. The spots are feeding up big time on crawfish. Crankbaits and Texas Rigged lizards and brush hogs with any shade of green are killing them. My deer hunters have been doing well. Had two big bucks seen in the last few days. Several doe have been taken in the last few days, and just got a text from a hunter in a tree, who has a doe down right now. The rut is starting and starting early this year. Duck season is closing in, and the first few birds have shown up. I expect duck season to be phenomenal this year with low water conditions and a ton of grass. Call now to book a hunt, the calendar’s filling up fast.

What a difference a day makes

Wow! Deer seem to be getting back to corn even though we have a ton of green stuff around for them. All hunters saw deer tonight. I had a chance to sneak out on river earlier for a few hours. Water has cooled. The bite is on. If you want to catch a ton of fish on the Colorado, you need to call me now and book a trip. Rain can muddy the river in a day or it can stay good for a month or two. The fishing is just flat good. Don’t miss a great chance. Come get’em!

We're off to a rough start this year

Roughest start to bow season I have had in a long time. It’s just been slow. Warm daytime temps with cool nights and rain have created a buffet for these deer that they haven’t had in a long time. Rye grasses along with a bunch of other sweet winter grasses are everywhere, and the deer are on them big time. Cold weather is the only solution I see.

Sweet grass over corn

Hunting has been tough. The rain we had 10 days ago along with mild temps has brought the rye grass and other sweet winter grasses up that these deer love to browse on. The deer have not been on corn for the last 5 days. They will get their fill of it and move back to corn shortly. We have taken 7 doe and two bucks to this point. Had a hunter see a monster Saturday but had no shot.

Let the season begin

Opening weekend was rough with all the weather moving in. Opening morning was a complete wash out. Had four hunters opening evening. They took down 3 doe and a nice 8 point. Pigs just showed up as well. This week will be much better with cooler temps and a fading moon.
