re: Buck to Doe Ratio - The Last Coco
[quote]150 acres[/quote] Yeah I'm betting the does are just elsewhere right now. I wouldnt be concerned at all unless you experience these ratios for another year at least. You're also small enough that you're unlikely to impact the herd dynamics anyway unless you start killing 20 deer a year or...

re: Buck to Doe Ratio - The Last Coco
How big is your lease? And how many cameras out? I've seen it happen where two cameras separated by less than 400 yards showed dramatically different deer until October. One captured almost exclusively bucks and the other does until the bachelor groups broke up. I wouldn't draw any conclusions until...

re: Mushroom ID help - UPDATE in OP (they're oyster mushrooms) - The Last Coco
Positive ID on the original mushrooms as oysters. Most were too far gone with bugs to harvest but we did manage to get a few. After looking around though we found this gorgeous cluster of oyster mushrooms on a nearby willow stump: [img]https://i.imgur.com/DLGecu6.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur....

[quote]I don't think that chants grow out of wood[/quote] Very good point I had overlooked. I'm now about 95% in the summer oyster camp. Me and a buddy (who is much more well versed in this than I) are going back first thing in the AM to do an additional inspection ...

Mushroom ID help - UPDATE in OP (they're oyster mushrooms) - The Last Coco
Came across this log today while on a walk with the family. The mushrooms look edible to me but I don't have a good positive ID on them. Anyone out there with better fungal knowledge? I'm in Dallas if that helps. [img]https://i.imgur.com/GvfOuaX.jpg[/img] ETA: Positive ID on the original mushroo...

re: What has been your luck asking for permission on hunting on others land - The Last Coco
[quote]Lease? Maybe offer money? [/quote] Either would help. I'd show up with a plan for lease, or help around the farm. Plus insurance and a willingness to help out or give them some meat. In my experience, they want somekne who will value the land and the deer, so act accordingly....

Generally speaking in the south, you should.expeft about 1/20 to say yes in my experience. Between someone else already paying to lease it and them just not liking you shoes.and everything in between...

re: Anyone have a teal that I could borrow for puppy training? - The Last Coco
Best thing I found was to buy legal farmed ducks off of Facebook or Craigslist. 100% legal and they smell the same. $5 for a whole duck often times. I'd get a fat duck to eat and wings and a carcass to train with. Just sayin......

re: Tips for fishing toledo bend - The Last Coco
Depending on how early you can start, topwater is absolutely still in play. After that, youre still in a summer pattern in all likelihood, so deeper grass, humps and isolated structure would be your keys. Carolina rig, shakey head, jigs, and even some swimbaits or underspins deep could all be eff...

Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) episode with my Boykin - The Last Coco
More of a PSA than anything, but we had a scary moment with our 8 year old Boykin (Bijou) today. I dropped her and my labkin (Bourre) off today at my MILs property in E TX for a long weekend. Just after I'd made the 3hr trip back to Dallas, I got a call that Bijou had started vommitting, became very...

re: Happy Boykin Spaniel Day! - The Last Coco
Bijou is going on 9 years this coming January. She's awesome. Her hunting days are probably done, but she has unimaginable patience with my 22 month old. And she is my first dog. My favorite shot of her with her first ducks: [img]https://i.imgur.com/QCuDrKT.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com...

re: Cast net that doesn't suck? - The Last Coco
[quote] I am not sure I can throw a bigger net, I know I have trouble with smaller nets[/quote] In my experience, up to about 8' nets, the bigger they are the easier they are to throw. Once you get to 10'+, they can still be easy to throw but they take a little more technique. But a 4' net is ...

re: The Official Kayak Thread - The Last Coco
I would not get that OT Vapor kayak. Its a sit in and will not be conducive to fishing. It'll also be hot as hell and the short length means it'll be slow and not track well for longer paddles. Im not sure what you mean by "good deal" but you should be able to find a much better kayak that is des...
