Whitetail Rut Texas

With the  whitetail rut happening all over the United states I thought I would do some research and see what the rutting activity was like in some other great states. There is not a more exciting time to be deer hunting than when the whitetail rut.  They say everything is bigger in Texas, and I have always heard about big deer Texas. I have enjoyed watching the different hunting shows through the years, and I have seen some great ones filmed in Texas. One day I hope to be able to go to Texas. The Lone Star State is definitely known for trophy whitetails.

Whitetail Rut

There are two different rutting periods in the Lone Star State: December in the southern part and November in the northern half of the state. The north Texas rutting moon would be Nov. 13. this year and December 12 in South Texas.

Down in South Texas, the big bucks necks are starting to swell  as the big boys rut in big deer Texas.  Expect the rut in  the Brush Country of the famous South Texas  to start the last few days of November, but it will probably peak about mid-December as it has done for many years,  and some rutting activity will probably continue until the first week of January. Man I would like to be there when the monsters are chasing does. I bet the brush country is an exciting place to be when the big boys go bonkers! I’m getting pumped just thinking about it.

The other night my son wanted me to make something out of play dough so I did. The picture below is what we came up with. I ran out of brown so I drew the rest with crayons. I guess I could change careers and become an artist. I know, keep my day job right. My sons and wife liked it.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Deer Hunting Kentucky Supplies Dreams

Kentucky supplies hunting dreams.

Hunting Kentucky is excellent.

Have you ever been hunting Kentucky, The Bluegrass State? I sure would love to.  Do you dream about hunting Kentucky?

Hunting Kentucky

I sure do. Some buddies and I were on our way to a recent bow hunting trip in southern Illinois and we stopped at a sporting goods store in Paducah Kentucky for a few last minute items for deer hunting. I didn’t remember to bring all my supplies hunting. They had some deer on the wall that quickly caught my attention.  And now I know, in Kentucky there are definitely some big bucks. I could tell right then and there deer hunting Kentucky supplies hunting dreams. As a matter of fact when we were driving to Illinois, we saw a huge trophy whitetail buck in Kentucky, he was running down the side of a big hardwood ridge, right beside the highway at 9:30 am. That sure got our attention. That monster buck almost caused a pile up on the highway. Kentucky is such a beautiful state. I am hoping to transfer there with my job in the near future.One of my favorite blogs is Outdoor Life’s Big Buckzone. Travis Faulkner has a lot of great stories and articles on there, and he is from Kentucky, and he definitely knows what he’s doing when it comes to hunting big mature whitetail bucks in Kentucky. And he seems like such a great down to earth good ole southern man. So be sure to go to my blog roll and check out the Big Buckzone.

There are many different public hunting opportunities in Kentucky. I found a great link to them on  Field & Stream. It is a great place to research all the different ones and see which one you would be interested in. I have been wanting to hunt the Land between the Lakes public hunting area. With 107,594 acres of prime deer habitat, and 300 miles of undeveloped shoreline, and abundant whitetail deer, it sounds like a great place to take a trophy buck. They offer quota hunts for firearms and archery and crossbow hunts. If you are interested in a Public hunt in Kentucky be sure to check out the above link and I think it will be very helpful to you.

I look forward  to one day deer hunting Kentucky big bucks, and see if indeed it supplies hunting dreams.

On one last note I wanted to include a picture of me with my boys with my recent Illinois bow kill. They were proud of their daddy. My oldest son Noah was happy for me and my youngest son Sawyer wasn’t real sure what to think.

Down South Big Deer Stories

I hope every one’s having a great season.  Since my bow hunting trip to Illinois, I have been glad to be back down south hunting.  I was looking in my GON magazine and many hunters have been successful harvesting big deer. I have seen a lot of pictures big bucks on the walls of the local gas station hang outs. I just love this time of year hearing all the different stories of all the big deer, hunters have taken down south hunting near where I live. I love all the hunting stories from all over, but when you hear a story about a big buck from near where you live it kind of gets you fired up!

We have a big buck on our club we have had on trail camera for several years now, and the other day my dad called me and he was excited he saw him from the stand, for just a second, he didn’t stick around long enough for dad to get a shot, but sightings of him during daylight hours are rare, so now we are all fired up. I sure would like to be able to share a story about this buck with you, before this deer season is over. Although since the time my dad saw him, the rut has cooled off a lot.  Deer season  always seems to go by so fast.

Do you have any good stories about big deer taken or seen near where you live? I’d love to hear some of your stories, from near where some of you live. If you have photographs to go with your story send them to me and I’ll try to put your story and photos on here.

Big Deer

This is a picture of another big deer, a peach state monster I did a post on last year, you can see the full story here Lincoln County Giant Buck.

Just yesterday I was reading a great story at  OTHMAR VOHRINGER OUTDOOR BLOG . He had posted a story about a huge whitetail on his site that was very interesting. Click on his link, and go check it out. He has a great blog definitely worth going over to check out.

Deer hunting stories are always fun to share, and if you think about it we can all learn from each others stories. You can find out many helpful tips and information about deer and deer movement, and maybe use that information to help you bag a big trophy buck. When someone is telling me a story about a hunt I always try to get as many details about the hunt as I can. Was he with a doe? What was he eating? What time of day was it? What was the weather like? What type of woods were you hunting? Any information that may help me figure out the deer I am hunting. Like the old saying says, the only dumb question is the one you don’t ask.
