This mornings sunrise is pretty vanilla. Clear skies and 44 degrees.

Action should start early as Casey is in love with the antelope that should be bedded close by camp. I imagine we will eat and do coffee before getting after them. They usually don't move until the sun is fairly high in the sky.

They have had so much rain, getting across the ranch to where the Elvis hotel is will be difficult but that's a traditionally high opportunity area.

Of course the first order of business is probably within a mile of camp.

Ben, Leggy, Devin, and Corey are loaded up for a full day of chasing antelope. They are in for a long haul.



Zac, Casey and I are headed out as well but will be closer to camp.

This is spot on.

I'm hoping Casey scores so we can do a morning run to the carved big rock but the sinkholes are a concern.

There's water everywhere, grass is tall and cattle are happy. This ranch is definitely in drought recovery mode and should produce some fine animals.

We are traversing the country in the ranger with good cell service. My how times have changed from 2002.
