old gamepole


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


(Gamepole 1963 or 1964). Palo Pinto County Texas. Leases were 50.00 to 100.00 dollars a year. And, it was a two buck county.
No one practiced any game management. We shot everything with a horn and nothing without a horn. That's the way it was done back then. The results were game poles full of mediocre bucks. This ranch went from a deer every 10 acres to a deer every 50 acres real quick.

1997 Game Pole in Live Oak County down near RanchDog out of Three Rivers. Three ten points and a pig. Every morning the rancher would "corn" the roads and all you had to do was wait
on a ten. Mostly, what you saw were does and spikes which no one wanted.

Corn doesn't give the deer much nutrition, and by corning the roads every morning, all it did was bring in inferior deer from all over. The ranch was overpopulated for the browse and to this day, it still is. From what I hear, you rarely see a racked buck big enough to shoot on this 6500 acre ranch.

Probably in 20 years, hunters will be talking about all the foolish attempts we made at management.
Grasshoppers, learn from our mistakes!

Hello there Shawn.
Yep, they catered to their customers, they had a nice set up. They just needed to stop killing bucks and kill doe for two or three years.
How's the weather, I'm taking the family to Eastern Colorado late next week.

Hot and dry here tpv, not a drop of rain for about 2 months. MId-90's today. I even washed and waxed the suburban today to try to make it rain. Probably about the same in CO, but RJ probably has better info, although he's up around 6000 ft, so Eastern CO may be even hotter.

Keep the pics coming. I'm going to try to get ahold of some of my Dad's old hunting photos to post.

That is just the name of the land we lease that we gave it. It includes land from 3 different counties.
