Unhappy Losing our Lease in Victoria

We've just been informed we are losing our lease in Victoria, landowner says he's no longer leasing it out, sounds like he's going to let the kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews have it. Can't blame the guy, it's his land but man this sucks! We've got a great group of guys and we've put in a ton of work improving the place.

If anyone has a lead on a place in the Victoria area I'd love to hear about it, I could fill every spot for you I'm sure.

Headed down this weekend to start taking stuff down.

Rant over.

Man, sorry to hear that. Victoria and the surrounding area's are hard to pick up a lease in.

Best of luck.

Lease was at the end of Furhman Rd. in Victoria, close so Salem and Hwy 444.

This link would drop you right on our camp house. https://www.google.com/maps/place/28...!4d-96.9401386

Brutal. I keeping my fingers crossed that my lease doesnt get yanked. The family is splitting some of the land up and as long as my buddy's dad gets the pasture we are one Ill be good otherwise Ill be picking stuff up off there as well.

Anybody in need of a big blind, meet me at the ranch on Friday, it can be yours for $600.

4x8 x 6'6" - foam layer in floor for noise dampening, office chairs included.

I didn't have any plans when building this thing, just started putting stuff together and it shows a little bit. However, this thing is super stout (also super heavy) and stood through Harvey when our other blinds didn't.

When I first put it up I didn't have anything to anchor it with and before I could get back to anchor, it fell. One of the 4x4 legs cracked in the fall (actually it cracked trying to stand it back up). I have circled that leg in the picture, it has been replaced but had to replace it from outside the base in a pinch.

Also, I never could find the augers I was looking for to anchor it, the outriggers was my solution and it has worked great.

In summary, this thing is ugly, but also extremely strong and hurricane proof

As Moser would say, this is amateur hour.
