It was an awesome year in Rocksprings Texas for white tail deer. The buck population is flourishing and the deer are as healthy as i have ever seen them! God bless Texas!

As usual, nice antlers, small deer and too much private land.

The 13 inch min works fairly well but the cull buck criteria needs changing

The state as a whole has a lot of deer, but I feel like the heard is not managed for quality bucks.

I hunt Texas public land and the law requires that the buck must have and inside spread of 13" or greater. I have seen 5 1/2 year old bucks with small frames probably 11" wide but great Mass.

Had a lot of deer movement early before season. Deer movement slowed way down once season started like normal. Had to go to rifle to have a chance at getting a kill in before season close.

I believe that most quality deer management programs are done by individuals as opposed to those programs administered by the State.

Texas gets it right. But then again everything is better in texas.

The state with the most diverse habitat produces good bucks in all regions. Some counties require a 13" spread which has certainly protected younger bucks letting them get to older age classes.

The legal killing of spikes is Texas' greatest sin IMO. It's simply a way to keep most hunters happy, and has zero science to back it up.
