Premium hunting outfitters in Texas and hunting guides? Overheated bucks may well hang back a little farther into the woods until dark. In that case, you need to push in a bit and set up in staging area off the food source. In many cases, this means setting up fairly tight to a buck’s bedding area (without invading it or spooking the buck), which makes an unobtrusive approach critical. If you’re hunting near a water source, as you should be, use a stream bed as your entry and exit trail or paddle a canoe across a lake or pond instead of bungling in to your stand from the uplands.
Hunt Plan: Sit all day, or for as long as possible, in your best terrain funnels near doe bedding areas or security cover. If you know bucks are visiting a doe feeding area, don’t hesitate to put out a decoy and/or call and rattle aggressively. When deer aren’t on their feet due to hunting pressure or because they’re tending does, take the action to them by still-hunting or organizing a drive. Deer Behavior: Exhausted from the rut and pressured by hunters, bucks focus on eating and staying alive. They generally reduce their movements to a simple bed-to-feed pattern.
We had a great time this past weekend. The owner and his family are hard working, salt of the earth people, who want their customers to leave happy. They treat you like a friend instead of a client. The cabins were clean and comfortable, and the ranch is covered with game. We saw deer, turkey and hogs every day. I would definitely recommend B4 Hunting Adventures for your next hunt.

Warbritton: We’ll often run cameras in the middle of a bedding area on public land that we never check throughout the fall. We’ll set them out in July or August while scouting and won’t go back for them until February. This is for research and learning. We’ll see when bucks were most active in that bedding area throughout the entire season, what other factors might have influenced their activity levels and what type of hunting pressure the area receives. A lot of people use trail cameras for information relevant to today. In reality, if you learn to read sign well, that’s a much better indicator of recent activity in an area. Cameras offer actual visual representation of a buck, but sign, like fresh tracks or rubs with bark lying on top of the leaves or a scrape from that morning, is more important in the short term, in my opinion.
The B4 Ranch is still operating within the original family and is full of interesting family history. This old bus is a random piece of history on this family ranch. As the story goes, in previous generations this was used as shelter to wait out the Wild West Texas storms. There was no way to escape hail storms if you were deep into the ranch on horseback. At a later date, it was used for ranch hands to camp in if they stayed out fixing fences, etc. See more details on https://www.b4huntingadventures.com/.
