They are hitting the protein and cottonseed hard. It looks like we may have gotten around 0.50” of rain over the past two days.

We are up off FM 2873, north of Fort McKavett and it is very dry. Whitetail and axis are tearing up the feeders, thankful for multiple water troughs in each pasture. Been watching a few rain clouds on radar over the past week but it isn’t enough to do anything.

How long did it take your deer to take to cotton seed? We may try it this year

Same for us off Waddell

Quarter inch at the house and across most of the county. Good for starters but need so much more.
Adios,
Gary

trophy8 07-07-2018 03:43 PM

Anybody seeing axis spread further? Towards Hext

Gary Roberson 07-07-2018 04:52 PM

Raining pretty hard south of town this afternoon.
Adios,
Gary

Thanks Gary that is good to know. I was out there yesterday and it rained briefly then stopped. I did see a few whitetail and 3 Axis.

It took mine four months to start eating it in Richland Springs and now they are hitting it like crazy.

I know they've got to be close by though. Surprisingly enough I have seen a sika, but no axis or blackbuck. There used to be Spanish goats running around about ten years back but theyre long gone.

I hunt literally at 1674 and CR 210 on the east side of 1674 and we do have axis coming around. They should eventually reach you

Lee230 07-07-2018 09:49 PM

Funny you mention the Spanish Goats. They came into our country west of Hext during that time. Not seen them in many years.

Harvey 07-09-2018 03:24 PM

Joining this fire. We're VERY dry out on the Menard/Schleicher line. Tried cottonseed this year and can't keep enough of it out. Hoping its helping our herd through this drought.

Mike Murphey 07-09-2018 03:58 PM

We are about 5 miles West of the Fort on Cemetery Road. We did receive 1.65" of rain last night and about 1/10" Friday and Saturday. Some places got more, (to the North and East). The deer have been hitting protein and cotton seed hard. Gone through 5 tons of Cotton seed and 14 tons of protein the last 3-4 weeks.

Hoping "to the North and East" was right over our place!

MenardCountyBow 07-09-2018 05:43 PM

Hoping we got some too. We aren’t far from the fort

Gary Roberson 07-10-2018 10:09 AM

Pretty good rain north and northwest of town yesterday afternoon. I have heard up to one inch. Sounds like Mike Murphey is getting all the rain out west near Ft. McKavett, none here in town.
Adios,
Gary

trophy8 07-10-2018 10:23 AM

Anybody looking to get rid of a bow blind in our area? Needing one soon!!

BuckySWT 07-30-2018 08:15 AM

This is year 3 of supplemental feeding for us.

Looking back at pics of what we started with vs what we have now as far as numbers and size/health is dramatic.

Very dry at our place right now. But here are a few from earlier this summer. Right off of 190 about 12 miles out of Menard.

BuckySWT 07-30-2018 10:05 AM

Sure hope a few more show up.

Itís bone dry where we are.
