    Went in my main deer hunting spot and put up a ladder stand yesterday…..it’s in the middle of a hardwood ridge the size of a couple football fields, and acorns are starting to drop good.

    Went back today to refresh a natural blind and took the camera...the ground will be littered with acorns like this through the end of October / first week of November…deer opens October 27th.

    Meanwhile, planning to try the Doves and Squirrels a couple times between now and then...hope everybody has some good seasons this fall…

    Texas, some counties have a muzzle loader season, but it's AFTER the rifle season. :rolleyes: Me, I've been hunting 'em in rifle season with the musket. I can't see more'n 150 yards where I hunt, anyway. Don't need no belted magnum. :D

    Pretty woods, tall pines. Whee I hunt it's scrubby old oaks and tall grass. Not even a tree big enough to put a stand in, have to use a tripod. Typical south Texas scrub.

    Flintlock rifles & smoothbores are all I've hunted with for a dozen years or so now regardless of the season...I'm 'hooked' on them...if I hunt, its with a Flintlock...LOL.
    I live for the rut...and here the main cycle of all the rut activity is basically the month of November, give or take a couple days.
    And October / November are the best times to be in the fall woods here...beautiful colors, cool temps, etc...
