BgDnTx- howdy from another Hill Country handgunner! My hunting grounds are in eastern Kerr county- same stuff you hunt in Blanco.
I?m still pretty new with handgun hunting, and only have 3 handgun deer under my belt. Two with a CVA ?Scout? .243 and one with a Ruger SRH in .454. I have a similar issue to you in that my feeder is 60 yards from a fence, and behind that fence is some of the thickest cedar I have ever seen in my life. After tracking a few deer into that area, I started doing head shots to drop the deer in their tracks. I know that is a dangerous proposition with a chance to do some very nasty wounds (I have seen a couple deer with jaws blown off. Not pretty), but I am very picky about my shots and only take a 100% sure shot.
Good luck on opening weekend!
