hunting in central texas tips

got an invite from a vendor to go on an Axis deer hunt next week in central tx. i am also bringing along my crossbow in case i run across a wall hanger white tail buck. i have never been hunting in central texas (luckenbach area to be exact) only in east texas and alabama, so I am unfamiliar with the terrain and any tips/tricks that may be helpful. which camo pattern is the best match, anything that i may want to drag along with me to help make my hunt more successful? thanks in advance

this time of year green camo matches everything, a 270 or 3006 works great , if you hunt like the locals you will need a spot light lol. fairly nice rolling hills to shot from . should have fun .

Roll the window down first. Make sure all the empties are in the backseat you dont kick them with your feet. Most important is to only shoot when they are close to the road so you don't have to drag it very far.

TO be honest the best way to hunt in central texas is from a blind or just ride around in the truck till ya see something to shoot. you can use anything from .222 to a 30-06 but a .270 is prolly the most popular...I use a 25-06.

IF you gonna get all gussied up with camo, gear, and try and sneak around I would suggest a pattern in either a very faded green or towards more brown and tan. Make sure ya check to make sure nothing on you makes any noise when your moving.

without knowing any other specifics remember to bring some binoculars, good sharp knife, and a camera.

If you're going to hunt Axis I'm sure it's a high fenced ranch and more than likely you will be hunting out of custimized trucks with a platform on top. The animals are use to seeing and hearing the trucks so it will not bother them. Feed the roads heavy with corn and set back and relax. Take a good camera and take pics is about all I can suggest.

If it's not a high fenced ranch stay in the stand as long as you can since the deer are moving later in the day. We are seeing the bigger deer after 9 in the morning up till noon. Any camo pattern will work since most of the hill country is thick.

Good luck.

Pure truth for hill country hunting.

I would suggest a non asswipe though. Just drive around and kill what you want. IMO the best all round caliber for hill country hunting is a .308

If you truly feel like camoing up (which you don't need) to live out your inner Indian or military sniper fantasy I would suggest a brush country pattern this time of year.

I learned from my dad hunting down there. He would always drop everybody off in the blind then he would go hang out in the warm truck. I have never wore camo in the hill country. We use .243, .270, and the .22 hornet if we are just after meat.
