Patience and a light jacket promise to be a pair of useful items for Texas' 700,000-plus deer hunters to pack as they head afield for Saturday's statewide opening of the general hunting season for white-tailed deer. A late-week cool front is predicted to produce dawn temperatures in the high 40s or low 50s and daytime peaks in the 60s and 70s with calm, mostly clear skies over opening weekend - perfect conditions for the biggest hunting-related weekend of the year for most of the state's million-plus hunters and welcome relief from recent warm, muggy, windy conditions that depress deer movement and hunters' enthusiasm. In much of the state, an abundance of highly prized natural foods such as acorns and forbs is drawing the primary attention of hungry deer, meaning less traffic to the corn-spitting feeders on which many Texas hunters depend to attract deer. [...] while Texas' deer herd, the largest in the nation with as many as 4 million animals, remains almost supernaturally robust across most of the state, the effects the record-setting drought in 2011 had on the buck population could force hunters to take more time studying antlers before they take a shot. "The eastern part of the Edwards Plateau saw more rain than the western part, so overall body condition and antler development look better the farther east you go," said Rufus Stevens, Edwards Plateau district leader for TPWD's wildlife division. Most whitetail bucks don't grow antlers meeting the 13-inch inside spread requirement until they are past their third year, and buck harvest in "antler restriction" counties is usually dominated by 31/2-year-old deer. With 31/2-year-old bucks in short supply, hunters wanting to avoid taking up-and-coming 21/2-year-olds and allow those young bucks with above-average antler development to reach their potential and pass along their genes will have to carefully assess any buck they target.
