I wont be hunting that far from you. We are hunting off of 116 before you get to Pidcoke from Gville. Our place is rt across from Ft Hood. This will be my 1st year on that place but I know there are a lot of deer in that area. I saw an absolute monster 2 years ago that crossed the road in front of me in Pidcoke. He had to have been every bit of 170" and of course he was going on to Ft Hood property. Lots and Lots of deer in that area and there are some good ones if you are lucky enough to see one.

The Leon River is golden hunting....ive hunted up and down the same river just 2 counties west with similar results to what you describe
Yep, I've got two places leased on the Leon. One just south of Gatesville and the other about 7 or 8 miles north. I saw 3 legal (13 inch AR) bucks last year during bow season, but passed on all of them due to lack of age. I typically see anywhere from 2 or 3 up to as many as 20 does on a good hunt. Most days I'll see some type of buck, but not a lot of really big ones. I've got a 22 inch wide 8 point that I killed near Pearl back in the 70's when I was a teenager, but usually a 17 or 18 inch wide 10 point classifies as a big buck for that county.

Ive been hunting my whole life about 2 miles off the Leon on a creek that runs into the Leon on the Hamilton/Comanche county line....seen as many as 45 deer an afternoon, 6 bucks at a time with the smallest bein an 8pt, etc, etc. Yep 17-18" wide is big, but ive killed a 14 inch wide buck that grossed 133" smile

45 deer? Geez. I was crapping all over myself with 17 in an afternoon last year. I generally see 5 or 6 deer each sit. Beats Newton County with a deer every 2 or 3 seasons.

Depends where your at in the county, there are some parts of the county where the hogs are pushing the deer out like around pancake and turnersville. Around pidcoke probably will have a better population of deer than the northeast part of the county, and it doesn't hurt being close to fort hood, LOTS of deer in there. Don't expect big bodied deer, they tend to be really small in that area. Have heard of some absolute honey holes around walker/houston county in the national forest, private land sound to be tough or the locals are just keeping quiet.
